Trivia

The scene where the zombie baby crawls back into its dying mother's womb was accomplished with a concealed trapdoor between Rachel McBride's legs, and a latex appliance covering her stomach. The latex was expanded as the baby vanished from view, giving the illusion it was crawling back inside her. This is the only scene in the film in which real blood was not used. See more »

Goofs

Just before the truck crashes, two men are visible off to one side, holding fire extinguishers. See more »

Quotes

Tom Rennigan: And here, I thought that stinky smell was bile.
Don Collier: What're you talkin' about?
Tom Rennigan: I'm talkin' about fleas, Donny. Mindless hopping vermin, ofttimes carried by mangy strays, and by people of questionable nature. People who turn backs on friends and the like.
Don Collier: I just want to live, Tom. That's all any of us want, is to live.
Tom Rennigan: No one lives. End of the day, Donny, we're all chalkmarks.

Blair Witch Zombies
4 March 2006 | by (barricaded in a shopping mall) – See all my reviews

I saw this weird little movie years ago at a friend's house, and no one else seems to have ever heard of it. A military germ warfare satellite crash lands in a small town, turning its inhabitants into zombies. A few people are also in the town, including a documentary film crew who believed the satellite was a UFO. This movie was shot on video, and like Blair Witch Project, pretends to be a true account of actual events. It's not perfect, and perhaps someone should have told the director to ease off just a tad on the blood and gore, but Dead End has moments of comic genius. The zombies are great! not their makeup, but their characters. One zombie endlessly drags a dead dog around the block, stopping at fire hydrants, while another zombie, a postman, walks up and down empty streets, placing items into mailboxes; rocks, dead birds, fingers, and so on, while several zombies dressed as characters from The Rocky Horror Picture Show just stand patiently in front of a closed theater throughout the entire picture, never chasing or eating anyone. Perhaps too many ideas for such a low budget, but filled with in-jokes for film and television buffs, and some of the most truly grotesque death scenes ever imagined.
