Trivia

In the "cardiectomy" scene, the heart S. William Hinzman bit into was supposed to be a plastic cast of a pig's heart. When something went wrong with the plastic cast, they had to throw the actual pig's heart in instead. Word was not relayed to Hinzman in time, who found himself biting into a pig's heart. See more »

Fantastic!
19 November 2003 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best independent zombie flicks. There are a lot of zombie movies which stretch the basic elements of zombie horror and this one doesn't. It sticks to the good old fashoned plot and form that was started by "Night of the Living Dead". I enjoy this film every time I watch it. Keep your eyes peeled for the up coming DVD release.
