Cheesy and amateurish zombie flick., 7 August 2009
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

The confederate zombies shall rise again!A group of unlucky teenagers decide to go camping in the woods.Kiyomi the Blind hears strange bells.Mel goes off to investigate and finds an old church and forgotten graveyard.The other campers soon join him and they find a case with a perfectly preserved Confederate flag and a diary.They decide to leave the stuff there,so as not to offend the dead Confederate soldiers buried in the graves,but Mel steals the diary.It's the beginning of nightmare as zombie soldiers rise from their graves looking for human flesh...The first half of "The Curse of the Screaming Dead" is deadly dull.The acting is incredibly bad,the dialogue is panned and the film looks gloriously cheap.When the zombies attack they're pretty crappy.Most of them are wearing Halloween masks and plaid shirts.The film becomes more amusing and exciting during the second half,when finally zombies do appear.5 out of 10 for this low-budget piece of trash.
