It’s shaping up to be a pretty good weekend for 14-year-old Jason. He’s driving up to a cottage in the woods with his best friend Colin, Colin’s older sister Summer and their parents.
Jason was really looking forward to hanging out with his friends, especially with Summer. But things quickly take turn in the wrong direction when Jason, Colin and Summer spy on their neighbor’s cabin where they see a woman drugging two local stoners in and then feeding them to her undead husband and kids.
With a shot-gun totting psycho determined to keep them quiet, her slavering zombie family focused on eating them, and the party-drunk parents who won’t believe them, it’s up to Jason, Colin and Summer to arm themselves, toughen up, learn to work together and bash in some zombie skulls before they become their neighbor’s next family dinner.
Goonies meets Evil Dead, DEAD SHACK is a dark comedy dripping with gory action.
