Dump these chemicals in the graveyard, what could go wrong?
10 February 2008 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

A chemical company CEO boost profits by illegally dumping dangerous chemicals. The lackey dumps the chemicals, where else, but in a graveyard and when the chemicals soak into the ground, some recently dead young women get up out of their graves and decide to exact some revenge.

My appreciation for this movie demonstrates my weakness for campy B movies. While ostensibly a zombie movie, the zombies are quite unusual in that they only come out at night, are very cunning, can open and shut doors, can put on or take off clothes, swim, have sex and even drive cars. The explanation for all this was so obvious I admit I didn't guess it until I watched the alternate ending on the DVD. It also explains why the director played fast and loose with the plot throughout the movie attempting to obfuscate the obvious and I guess he succeeded with me.

The zombie girls have some issues with make-up continuity; their hands will be dead looking in one scene yet normal in the next. More continuity issues plague the victims whose state of dress changes from scene to scene. One female victim, her clothes ripped off in the attack, is once again covered a moment later as the zombie girls drag her from the room. The acting is terrible and the direction uninspired, technically the movie doesn't deserve a 6/10 but it manages to be entertaining despite its flaws and ultimately that's what movies are all about. Kudos to the casting department, the women are all very attractive without looking like bimbos.
