Brain freeze has never been so bad once you’ve tasted Ale Cream, as four friends inadvertently eat some radioactive ice-cream, turning them into zombies. Only problem is they don’t see themselves as the undead, but as super soldiers. And that’s the premise of this barmy new zom-com.

But as hard as it tries, Wasting Away fails. Big time. In fact, the only good thing about this film is the opening title sequence. OK, the concept is innovative: seeing the world through zombie eyes. As such, since zombies are slow moving, then humans are speeded up. But this, in addition to the terrible script and dreadful acting, ends up like being on a really bad trip.

Wasting Away tries to be the new Return of the Living Dead, but is actually worse than Attack of the Killer Tomatoes or even The Giant Spider Invasion (now that was bad). Prepare to watch your life waste away watching this rubbish.
