Storyline

Six high school buddies accidentally kill a drug pusher and dump his body in toxic waters. When the pusher returns as a zombie and goes on a killing spree, their only recourse is to dump the body of one of their own recently dead, and have him return as a "good" zombie to face off with the "bad" one. The producer's hook for the film was to feature music by groups the likes of The Fleshtones and Los Lobos. Written by M. Gumen

This Sucks
15 January 2005 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I was dopey enough some years ago to buy a used tape of this from a Blockbuster. I thought it might be fun in a campy sorta way. I wasn't expecting much in the way of high class entertainment. Well, I watched the whole movie. I concluded that it sucked -- a lot. I quickly sold the VHS for a buck, mad at myself that I had spent 2 bucks on this sh*t. Ugh!

I'm not gonna discuss the plot. You can read about what passes for the plot from another commenter. I can only say I wasn't entertained at all. I don't have high standards for movies like this, but even my low-rent standards were compromised by this pile of garbage. There are several movies whose negatives I wish I could destroy. This is one of them.

I might add that any readers who don't find this review useful are the kind of retards the director made this movie for. So there.
