Don't you hate it when your kid goes off to war and comes back a blood=sucking zombie?!
This is a very good film for what it is. If you don't expect Shakespeare or a film from the Criterion Collection, then you may also find that it's an amiable little film.
A family is at home when they receive a visit from a friend in the military. The man came by to personally inform them that their son was killed in Vietnam. However, the mother insists that a mistake has been made and she spends the night praying for her son's return--and she get's her wish. But, like the Garth Brooks son "Unanswered Prayers", the family ultimately realizes that sometimes it's best when you DON'T get what you want. Why? Because the young man is undead and has a frightful habit of killing people and taking their blood! And, he even kills the family's poor doggy just because that's the sort of thing zombie-vampires do! As I said, this is not a fancy schmancy film but a horror film. Campy, silly but fun. The film won't change your life, but you also won't be disappointed if you are looking for a good chill! Well worth seeing.
By the way, you may recognize the father but aren't sure where you saw him. That's John Marley--the guy who was the recipient of a horse's head in "The Godfather".
