"While I try to keep only films that were released in movie theaters on these lists 'o' mine, every once in a while I come across a piece of TV cinema that's so good, that, for me, it's quality ranks up there with the best of theatrical releases. Dead Set is one of those instances. From what I understand, this walking dead/reality series amalgam aired in two different versions; as five 30 minute series installments spread thro-out a five night run, & then, later on, as a 3+ hour compilation m"

" During a fictional series of Big Brother, a zombie outbreak occurs, but the house-mates are unaware of the impending doom outside of the Big Brother House. Yes I know Dead Set is not a movie but a 5 part mini series. So I added it anyways. I have heard some good things about it and I love zombies so I decided to check it out. PART 1: This one is more about setting up the situation and getting to know the characters before the more intense things begin. Things get the fun kind of messy about "

My Top 10 Zombie Films/Shows (11 movies items)

"Starring: Jaime Winstone, Adam Deacon, Davina McCall, Imogen Thomas. Plot in a nut-shell: There is an outbreak of zombies and a group manage to take refuge within the 'Big Brother house'. My Thoughts: Sounds kind of lame but it's actually really good! I watched it when it was released and remember not being about to wait for the next night (the 5 episodes ran night after night over one week). Plus if you don't like the show Big Brother, it's good to see some of the annoying contestents get r"

Zombies taking over Big Brother and the UK

“Dead set was shown on E4 during October 27 until October 31 2008 and is also set to be released on DVD November 3rd. Dead Set is based around Big Brother and in the house you have the type of people you would see in the house common people, weird people, normal people. The show has a twist as zombies take over and the rest of the Big Brother Housemates also Big Brother production runner Kelly, Kelly's boyfriend Riq, Patrick the producer, and Alex all try and escape and survive.

The cast are good in the show there is a few people who just didn't act so well the women Pippa was annoying but that's a typical Big Brother housemate. The show is entertaining it's crazy and very bloody. Adam Deacon who plays Space and Kelly who plays Jamie Winstone it was great seeing those 2 togeth” read more
