Over the past decade-plus, we’ve seen the zombie subgenre of horror further split into three sub-tiers: Outbreak, aftermath, and reconstruction. When it comes to horror comedy, we’ve seen the outbreak in Shaun of the Dead and the reconstruction in Fido. But is there a horror comedy that represents the immediate aftermath of a zombie apocalypse? There is now!
Bunkheads is a new TV series currently streaming on Amazon Prime. It follows the exploits of four 20-somethings who were lucky enough to find an underground bunker. Unfortunately, a mix of boredom and irritation might just make them feel better off on the surface with all the mayhem!
Check out our exclusive clip from Bunkheads embedded at the top of the article. Give the synopsis and trailer a look-see below.
A group of four lovable goofballs: an oddball teacher, a floundering actress, a techie workout warrior, and an immature wannabe rapper. You may think the hordes of undead are the biggest threat during a zombie apocalypse, but annoying roommates can be almost as much trouble.
Created by Will Gong, directed by Lauren Klixbull, and produced by Gabriel Reiter, the self-distributed short-form series stars Josh Covitt (The Mindy Project), Carly Turro (Homeland), Khalif Boyd (Criminal Minds), and Chris O’Brien (Rosewood) as roommates bunking down together during a zombie apocalypse.
