The whole zombie-slaying thing has become so over-saturated now that it takes something either completely brilliant or completely ridiculous to stand out from the shuffling undead crowd.
The Bowling Dead opts for the latter.
You're a pro bowler who finds himself alone after the zombie apocalypse. As it turns out, the time-honoured means of dealing with the undead - a bullet to the head - is a load of baloney.
No, what really does for Mr Zombie is a bowling ball to the shins. Oh, sorry - it's actually a prototype "weaponized bowling ball." Not just any bowling ball. That would be silly.
Deeply silly and full of gimmicky distractions, The Bowling Dead simply isn't fun enough to match its outrageously daft concept
