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.

I love but the ending could have been better.
Pure 80s, excellent practical FX, lots of buddy cop vibes, with some existentialism and class-conflict tucked into the background. A unique watch, and solid fun. Kind of like a cross between Terminator, The Thing, and Lethal Weapon.
Dumb movie. 80's cheese and schlock.
good movie, we stand.
Not exactly scary but a blast an a half to watch. Watch this with a few buddies for a corny horror night and you will have a great time.
