      After a girls' night out, endearingly awkward Deb wakes up in the apartment of the most attractive guy in Portland, Maine. She's thrilled, but she can't remember much of what got her there. Pretty boy Ryan only knows it was a mistake and ushers her out the door... into a full-scale zombie apocalypse. Now, a walk of shame becomes a fight for survival as the mismatched pair discovers that the only thing scarier than trusting someone with your life... is trusting them with your heart.

The makers of this film seem to think that's some kind of a novel thing, but it really isn't because I've watched about half a dozen such films that were made in the last few years and most of them have been a wash out. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEB is no exception, a film that fails due to the appalling low brow humour and completely irritating cast of characters, none more so than Deb herself.

This film unwisely attempts to meld the romantic comedy genre with the zombie film. I hate rom coms so I was instantly turned off by the premise and struggled to sit through it if I'm honest. The character of Deb, as played by Maria Thayer, is described as "endearingly awkward" on this film's home page and it soon becomes obvious that the writers want you to warm to her quirkiness, her accident prone nature, her dumb idiosyncrasies. The problem is that I didn't. I found her supremely irritating and she made me want to switch the television off.

The rest of the cast are no better, with Chris Marquette stuck in first gear with repetitive jokes and wooden acting. The only veteran performer is Ray Wise (ROBOCOP), who you have to feel for, being stuck in this inanity. After a mildly original set up, the narrative soon descends into the 'escape from one situation to the next' mould, all set at night in a local location. There are splattery gore effects and bad zombie acting, and none of it is remotely entertaining. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEB is a film which demands a shot through the head to put it out of its misery.
