About the Movie
Maverick L.A.P.D. officer Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) is a good cop who will do anything to nail the bad guys. Even if he's got to die for it in this off-beat comedy thriller. Investigating some frightening goings-on, Mortis and his partner, Doug Bigelow (Joe Piscopo), pay a visit to Dante Laboratories. It is here that they discover the high-tech Resurrection Room churning out a weird band of recycled and indestructible criminals. And it is here that Mortis meets his untimely death. But, hey, if you can’t beat ‘em, join’em! Police work is tough enough without having to tangle day after day with the same dead criminals; two can play this zombie game.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [A] sci-fi, low-tech comedy horror show.
Rotten: On the screen, it seems to be like a walking corpse itself: jerking around malevolently, with putrefying limbs, a fixed, grisly smile on its face and absolutely no spontaneity.
Rotten: Williams and Piscopo seem to be on autopilot when delivering their lines, not relating to one another, not picking up each other`s timing.
Cult classic..Joe Piscapo is great..zombie cops..WOW
Dead Heat, Dead Beat. Movie's awesome.
When I first started watching action/comedy movies, I grew up watching Rush Hour, after I heard about Dead Heat, that changed.
