Off-target zombie vengeance nonsense, not without sleaze appeal
23 March 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

This inferior quality film has a few decent ideas at work...a young girl and boy are siblings with telekinetic powers, and are kept hidden from the world by their protective father, who fears that they will be taken for scientific study should their secret become revealed. Their incommunicado home is invaded by some nasty bikers whose punkish antics result in the Father's death, obviously leaving the kids in quite a pickle. Unsure of what to do, they use their paranormal abilities to resurrect their father...thus begins a bloody rampage of zombie vengeance.

A poorly shot flummox with flavorless performances, KISS DADDY GOODBYE somehow manages to retain a level of watchability in a quirky sort of way...I suspect it could have been great had it been made under better conditions.

Take it or leave it. 4/10
