A weekend with the family turns into a comedic fight against the undead in the zombie comedy-horror flick Dead Shack.

It’s shaping up to be a good weekend for Jason (Matthew Nelson-Mahood, Heaven), a shy teenager. He’s driving up to a cabin in the woods with his brash best friend Colin (Gabriel LaBelle), Colin’s older sister, Summer (Lizzie Boys, Winter’s Dream), and their father and step-mother, who are permanently stuck in party mode. But things quickly go south when Jason, Colin and Summer witness their neighbor feeding two locals to her undead husband and kids. Realizing their own potential fate, the kids must work together to bash in some zombie skulls and save themselves from the neighbor’s ghoulish family.

And get a load of the usually-adorable Lauren Holly in this one!

Directed and co-written by Peter Ricq (Come Together), the Blu-ray and DVD incarnations of the Canadian production comes with the following bonus features:

  • Dead Shack trailer
