Dead

November 04

A hapless stoner who can see ghosts and a newly-dead wannabe super-cop team up to catch a serial killer in this zany New Zealand paranormal comedy. Happy Halloween!

20/21 Hop Film

Just in time for Halloween—a murder mystery/buddy comedy...but with ghosts. Using a homemade concoction of neurological medication and marijuana, Marbles is getting along just fine mediating between the living and the dead for a pittance of a living. Then Tagg, a would-be Sherlock Holmes who has just kicked the bucket, appears and makes Marbles an auspicious offer: help him find a serial killer in exchange for a hefty payout of life insurance. The money will allow Marbles to buy back his family home, which is tied to happy memories of his late father and which his domineering mother is selling. Can a fastidious ghost cop and a directionless stoner get over their prejudices and work together to save lives...and deaths?

Beloved New Zealand comedian Tom Sainsbury shines in his first serious role as Marbles while director Hayden Weal plays the overly macho (but secretly gay) Tagg. With a great playlist of songs written by the two leads, this deadpan horror comedy in the style of Shaun of the Dead makes a fun addition to anyone's Halloween movie marathon. D: Hayden J. Weal, New Zealand, 2020, 1h31m
