Two cops will stop at nothing - even their own deaths - to bag paranormal bad guys in this 80's horror-comedy from the editor of NIGHTBREED. Detectives Mortis and Bigelow discover a chemical company uses zombies to carry out crimes. But when Mortis is turned into one himself, he's got to solve his own murder before he decays. DEAD HEAT's clever fusion of gore, action and humor paved the way for recent Shudder favorites like JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER and JOHN DIES AT THE END. Horror icons Vincent Price, Linnea Quigley and Dick Miller make cameo appearances.

Honestly didn’t know what to expect at first. It started off enjoyable enough but wasn’t able to grab my full attention. The more I watched though, the more it pulled me in. I kept finding myself giggling at the jokes and the sheer absurdity of it all. By the end I felt very satisfied with how it had wrapped up. A few inconsistencies here and there but otherwise this film gets a bad wrap with only 11% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s no masterpiece but I could see myself coming back for rewatches of this pure 80’s joy ride down the road.
Great movie. I really like the humor and effects.
Great 80’s nostalgia.
what an amazing, 80s cheese, fun movie
A rollicking 80s time, a bit unsatisfying but worth watching.
