Total garbage.
7 November 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Joseph Merhi's "The Newlydeads" is a textbook example of late 80's slasher.The spirit of a dead drag queen kills honeymoon couples at the lakeside resort where he was murdered.This film is so horrendously bad that it truly has to be seen to be believed.The acting is awful,the suspense is non-existent and there is plenty of cheesy gore.The character of drunken preacher is hilarious.This is the sort of movie that keeps you thinking that they must have intended it to be bad-this couldn't be some sort of accidental mistake.Avoid this one like the plague.2 out of 10.
