Storyline

A strange man named Karl Rhamarevich dies shortly after discovering a way to become even more powerful in death through telekinesis. On the night of his burial in a crypt, Julie is to spend the night there as part of an initiation rite, supervised by two other girls. The crypt becomes a scene of horror as Raymar returns to life and deploys his horrifying telekinetic powers, with coffins sliding out and splintering open to release decaying bodies on Raymar's command. The bodies soon begin to menace the three girls trapped inside. Will they survive the horrific night in the crypt? Written by Derek O'Cain

Trivia

Tom McLoughlin and Michael Hawes had little control over the final product and it was edited without their consent. When they saw a sneak preview they were shocked because their ending had been cut out. In a desperate plea, they begged the producers to let them shoot one final shot. The actors, crew, and special effects team agreed to come back for free to film the final shot in Tom McLouglin's garage. See more »

Goofs

When Ramar first breaks out of his tomb, Carol removes her mask showing her hair has been flattened from wearing the mask. In the next scene, her hair has returned to its '80s style. See more »

Steve: Well, you're gonna show me where it is.
Leslie: No! No way! I'm not going in that place! If you wanna go, YOU go, Hugo!
Steve: Thanks a lot. Those guys are in a lot of trouble now.

Great Flick
12 February 2002 | by (Baker City) – See all my reviews

by the way it looks at the other comments made, it seems that a lot of people did not get the point to the flick. It is not centered around zombies, as a matter of fact they are not zombies at all, they are a device regenerated by the wizard to scare the girls to death, his main focus is on Meg Tilly, who he wants to help him finish the job that he died while doing in the first place, and what you get is a great flick with an awesome ending, it is hard to find on video, but every once in a while it shows up on HBO or Cinamax, check it out, I gave it a 10 and highly recommend it.
