“Shut up, you soppy tart, those things are zombies,” barks Alan Ford's pensioner, Ray, in this vigorous slasher, which lampoons and lionises London's East End in equal measure.

Ray's dense grandsons plan to save his under-threat care home by robbing a bank with their lairy cousin (Michelle Ryan). It's silly, yes, but also full of vim and some oddly affecting scenes of resistance from veterans such as Richard Briers and Honor Blackman.
