Indie filmmaker Peter Ricq just gave us our first look at his irreverent romp Dead Shack, which is being described as “Goonies Meets Night of the Living Dead”. If the description doesn’t sell you, the trailer just might! When you’re a teenager, going on vacation with the parents is always a drag—especially when you’re out in the woods without cell phone reception, am I right? Add zombies to the mix, however, and things will definitely get interesting!
Official Synopsis: On a weekend getaway at a rundown cabin in the woods, Jason, a cautious teen, his crude best friend Colin and his fearless older sister Summer are forced to work together, grow up and save their hard-partying parents from their predatory neighbor intent on feeding them all to her undead family.
