Christopher George's last movie before his death., 22 October 2000
Author: (eddy-28) from Lake Isabella, CA

Rating- 3*** stars out of 5

Adequte horror film from the notorius executive producer Edward Montoro who finaced this film. Christopher Geroge is in his sad last performance as a man who runs a mortuary. Here his son (Bill Paxton) goes on a killing spere. Yes the dead will rise! Also in it is George's wife Lynda Day George who was also in many other films with her including this one, Day of the Animals, Chisum and many others. also has Mary McDoughen and David Wallace. But the music is the one and only thing I hate about this movie. This was Montoro's last film to finace before he suddenly disapered off the Earth. Montoro was also credited with three of other Lynda Day and Christopher George's films- Grizzly, and Day of the Animals. George died shortly after the films release from a heart attack.
