A fun, highly entertaining film. It is very underrated.
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whenever I watch a horror movie, these are always the kinds of films I try to find. To start off, the story is very creative. Two twins with telepathic abilities raise their father from the dead to get revenge after he is murdered by a biker gang. I love the premise of the film and think it is executed very well. Any child that was forced to watch while a parent is murdered would be absolutely horrified so it's really no surprise they brought their father back from the dead. He was a single parent and was the only protection they knew. Marilyn Burns from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Helter Skelter stars in this movie which is the reason I decided to watch it in the first place. As with all the rest of her performances, she did a great job in this movie and really stood out. Teen idol Fabian also stars and gives a pretty good performance. The psychic twins played by Patrick and Nell Regan (the children of the director) did a pretty good job for first time actors. It's a shame to see they didn't go on to appear in other films.

Overall, this film is very unique and bizarre. It's certainly not what you would expect from a zombie horror film and that's the reason I enjoy it so much. It is a breath of fresh air and not many people seem to know about it which is very sad. I think it is highly underrated and deserves a lot more recognition than it receives. It is not your typical, run-of- the-mill horror film, it is very strange. But that strangeness is what makes it memorable. I bought the film expecting it to be just an average , typical horror film you see everyday but I was pleasantly surprised because I got a nice, interesting horror film unlike anything I'd ever seen before. If you have not yet watched this film, you should see it as soon as possible. You will not regret it because it is a very intriguing movie.
