Just when you though there wasn’t a brain left in filmland that the zombie genre hadn’t already chewed and spat out, German director Matthias Hoene leads the undead horde to… Hackney.

When a construction crew unearths a cursed tomb, the East End fills up with flesh-eating monsters.

After a few odd twists the action shifts to a retirement home for cockney stereotypes – including Richard Briers and a guntoting Honor Blackman. It might sound like a lazy idea for an iPhone game but a few fresh jokes and lashings of creative gore help it stand out from the shuffling crowd.
