Ibiza Undead is a 2016 horror film written and directed by Andy Edwards. Premiered at London's FrightFest Film Festival in August 2016, the film stars Cara Theobold, Matt King and Alex Zane. Shot on location in Ibiza and London, it has been described as "The Inbetweeners meets Shaun of the Dead"[1]

Synopsis[edit]

A group of young people head to Ibiza for the holiday of a lifetime – only to find a zombie outbreak getting in the way. In the world of Ibiza Undead zombies are commonplace and a new strain of virus has started appearing across the globe, rendering its victims as flesh-eating maniacs. Britain has been severely affected, but zombie are managed and frequent checks ensure that no virus carriers make it across the borders. Club owner Karl Matt King decides that deranged podium dancing zombies are just what he needs for his Ibiza nightclub, so he commissions a boat full of them to be smuggled in. His plan backfires and his 'cargo' ends up in the Mediterranean. But the undead don’t stay dead, and when they make their way ashore the holiday paradise of Ibiza soon begins to resemble a war zone. Oblivious to these events, a gang of young men - Jim, Alex and Az arrive on the island intent on a good time. Other cast members include Inbetweeners star Emily Atack as Alex’s older sister and movie pundit Alex Zane who makes a cameo as a club promoter.

Reception[edit]

Hollywood News felt that the story moved along nicely but had too many characters, including Big Jim who they found 'a little too crass and sex-obsessed to win the audience over'.[1] 'A foul and fun-filled British horror comedy...with a few sick and even sometimes sensitive surprises into the mix of zany teenage clubbing and teens clubbing zombies'[2] Referring to it as a classic 'Zom-Com', the Addicted to Horror Movies website describes the film as having 'jokes and spirit in spades' and the potential to stand comparison with the great Shaun of the Dead.[3]
