Rewarding horroromance, despite sluggish pace.
25 October 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

This is an off-center little movie, curiously along the lines of a Harlequin Romance with zombie-horror trappings. A young couple's passionate love story ends with the boy's tragic death...or does it? All is seemingly rectified when his reanimated body returns to the waiting arms of his grieving lover. She is initially overjoyed, though it latterly becomes clear that he's not quite himself anymore...plus, the decomposition of his body advances, making the couple's intimacy issues rather unappetizing .

Reaction to this film will be scattered, with stronger appeal to patient seekers of singular horror novelties than to the rank and file of zombie cinema fans and gorehounds. It's a subdued and casually precipitated oddity with some beautiful scenic location filming.

5.5/10...not wholly praiseworthy, perhaps, but a refreshing deviation from the "same-old same-old".
