review by Michelle Moore, ClOSE-UPFILM
"The chemistry that grows between McKiddy and Kidder as they embark as “cupids little zombies on a mission of love” (as described by Brent) is spot on with the two sharing some funny moments, anger and frustration as well as the occasional tender and more emotional touch."

"Not only are the situations unique and funny, the running commentary of perennial jokester Brent (Ross Kidder) only enhances "......"It is a tribute to the actors and the director to have put together this story in such a way as it has."
review by Entertainment Maven, TORONTO AFTER DARK
"Ross Kidder really steals the show as a quick-witted and cooler version of Shaggy (Scooby-Doo). A particular gag in the woods, when nature calls for Kidder, was an absolute riot."
Review by Chris Eaton, Newport Beach Film Fest, World Premiere
"Kidder seems to be channeling a young Jack Nicholson with shades of Heath Ledger’s Joker thrown in for good mix. Brent seems to have just enough screws loose that makes you wonder what kind of a person was he when he was alive?"
Review from Namesy Fright Fest, UK Premiere
"And thinking of it Kidder even reminds me of a young Cusack at his humorous best"
Review from: Blogomatic 3000 for Fright Fest, UK Premiere
"Michael McKiddy and Ross Kidder, as our two heroes Mike and Brent respectively, are a comedy pairing in the finest cinematic tradition, and this being a road movie, one can’t help but compare the pair to that other great “road” duo – Bing Crosby and Bob Hope – but Deadheads is more “splatstick” a la Abbott and Costello than Hope and Crosby, and that’s a good thing! I’d certainly like to see McKiddy and Kidder continue their cinematic friendship, be it in a sequel to this film (oh how I’d love a sequel in fact) or other movies, and even other genres. I’ll definitely be on the look out for future movies from the two."

"reason to not stop watching this Deadheads is its main duo of comedians. Their chemistry on screen works pretty well, enhanced by the presence of a third person really zombified."
Review from: Ain't It Cool News
"DEADHEADS shines by incorporating grossout humor with horror standbys seamlessly, but doesn’t forget to make you actually care about these characters. There are a lot of laughs to he had, taking full advantage of the fact that these guys are the undead with pieces of them falling off and being used as props no live character could do."
Review from Brutal as Hell for Fright Fest, Uk Premiere
"There is tremendous buddy chemistry between McKiddy and Kidder (wow, there is a lot of kidding going on… sorry), with Kidder’s Brent very much the goofball to McKiddy’s straight man Mike."
Review by Horror Talk for Fright Fest, UK Premiere
"The two leads, Michael McKiddy (Mike) and Ross Kidder (Brent), play superbly to each other’s characters. Mike’s perpetual disgust with Brent’s embracing of his new life is exactly what you’d expect from the straight guy and Brent’s happy-go-lucky style makes for some extremely funny scenes"
Review by Little White Lies for Fright Fest, UK Premiere
"-but Mike and Brent make for such amiable company that you will not mind tagging along with them as they limp and shuffle their way to a finish line that is just a little too self-consciously crowd-pleasing"
Love Horror for Fright Fest UK Premiere
"McKiddy and Kidder make up a hilarious slacker double-act, with Mike’s ‘straight man’ shock at the situation perfectly set against Bret’s eternal optimism and love of life (even now its over)"
Review by: Stuart O'Connerhttp://www.screenjabber.com/deadheads-review
"McKiddy and Kidder are both terrific in the lead roles, fleshing out their characters and bring a sort of Hope and Croby "Road To ..." feel to the piece. They're created a couple of characters that the audience comes to care about, which is a pretty tricky thing to do in a zombie flick."
"Performances from the cast are admirable, especially leads McKiddy and Kidder, who manage to keep up a perfect back ‘n forth buddy chemistry"
