Dancing with the mannequin.
12 January 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The Cates family from Colorado moves into broken down Beverly Hills mansion.They discover not only does a gang of malicious punks hang out there,but so does the angry spirit of a deceased actor Tyler Walker who is not pleased some rebellious teens have taken over his property."Twice Dead" begins with lovingly surreal sequence in which an actor from silent era is dancing with a mannequin.It mixes light-hearted humour with gore and supernatural stuff.All characters in "Twice Dead" are stereotypes and the dialogue is often hilarious.As with most films in this genre there are a lot of plot holes and lack of logic or consistency,but the death scenes are quite cool.Even motorcycle is used as a murder weapon.8 out of 10 for cheesy "Twice Dead".
