Actors led by Alan Ormsby go to a graveyard on a remote island to perform a necromantic ritual. The ritual works and soon the dead are walking about and chowing down on human flesh. Written by
Wow, what an annoying cast of characters. I can't stand their sarcasm and wit. Ormsby, a semi-major player in the horror world, plays the most unbearable jerk. The film looks great (sets and make-up). I might have honestly enjoyed it more with the sound off so I could not hear the endless bickering. The ultra-gay characters don't work either.
It's not until late in the film that we see zombie action. It's more 'Night of the Living Dead' inspired than any zombie film I have ever seen. Everything I liked about the climax (zombies surround the house) was done better and first in 'NOTLD'.
The twisted stuff like Ormsby in bed with the corpse and the disturbed wife is all ruined by how constantly irritating the characters are. Another major set back is that the victims don't become zombies themselves after dying. If you are going to rip-off 'NOTLD', you might as well go all out. See this only if you've already seen all the Romero zombie movies and all the Italian zombie movies and are in serious need of a zombie fix.
