Woke Up Dead, a new zombie web series, gives the much-neglected zombie point-of-view of what it’s like to, er, wake up dead. Drex, played by Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite, takes some shady headache medicine and drowns in his bathtub before reanimating. He is followed by his video-blogging best friend and his former college crush-turned-med student as he attempts to resurrect his post-college life, even after death.
The show provides an entertaining and light zombie fix with reasonably good production quality and funny characters. The first five episodes are currently out, one featuring Wayne Knight of Seinfeld. The series is being released every few days during the month of October on Crackle.com.
Woke Up Dead is part of this month’s Zombiefest on Crackle. For Zombiefest, sixteen full-length zombie classics are featured on the site, in addition to special content from Zombieland. Check it out before it’s gone!
Edit to add: Woke Up Dead also has its own companion website at WokeUpDead.tv, with links to the Twitter and Facebook pages for some of the characters … so why not check that out too?
