Synopsis from Level 33:
HAROLD’S GOING STIFF takes place in grey-skied, rural England and centers on Harold (Rowe) who is suffering from a new disease that is slowly transforming him into a zombie. A young, lonely nurse, Penny (Spencer), is sent to help ease the symptoms of Harold's frightening illness and they quickly and unexpectedly become very close. After an experimental treatment fails, Harold's condition deteriorates rapidly and the two end up on the run from a group of violent vigilantes seeking to rid their town of zombies.
I urge you to make up your own mind about films, but there are plenty of movies that I would recommend ahead of Harold's Going Stiff. Start with Cockney vs. Zombies for a comedy. Warm Bodies if you need to feel lovey dovey but have a heart of ice. Juan of the Dead if you want social criticism though I found it somewhat dull and just... dragged... the fuck... on. The Dead if you want a serious movie about zombies in Africa (which I think is a metaphor for AIDS).
I dislike writing negative reviews unless I'm convicted about a particular issue surrounding the movie (Soap Box reviews). I'll leave you to be the judge.
