only way it could've been worse is if Uwe Boll directed it
6 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A deranged doctor is resurrecting dead convicts as zombie, a insipid newspaper reporter investigate, and it's up to a kid with a weapon he made from a VCR to stop them. If that sounds ridiculously stupid, that isn't the half of it, my friend. The child actors are beyond horrible and the adult ones arn't any better, the plot is awful, the action pretty much non-existent, and just bad in every sense of the word. But sadly I've seen worse movies. I know, I know, even I don't envy me. I kinda dug the cheesy '80's them song.

Eye Candy: None in the main film, but the "Dying Day" version has nudity

My Grade: D-

DVD Extras: Disc 1) Sam Sherman Commentary on the final "Raiders of the Living Dead"; and the 80-minute "Dying Day" (with missing audio and poor quality throughout); that Sherman's company bought from Brett Piper Disc 2) the second version "Dark Night" (with missing audio and poor quality throughout); Stills gallery; "House of Terror" Promo; Theatrical Trailer; Trailers for "Mad Doctor of Blood Island", "Brides of Blood", "Beast of Blood", "Brain of Blood", "Blood of the Vampires", "The Blood Drinkers", and "Horror of the Blood Monsters"
