Trivia

This was a super low-budget film, and the crew for the latter production phase included many current/recent film students from the NYC metro area. The crew mostly had a great time making it (in New Jersey) and may have gotten more enjoyment from the film than its audiences. See more »

Scooby Doo And The Living Dead
25 April 2005 | by (Hiding Behind The Sofa) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for one of those "so bad it's good" movies, then ROTLD is the movie you want. Featuring characters with no background or motivation beyond "reporter," "Grandpa" and "child genius," scenes of complete silence and - best of all - a villain "reveal" that makes Scooby Doo's "I would have got away with it, too, if it wasn't for you pesky kids," look complex this film is, quite frankly, an absolute stinker.

Worth watching if you've a few likeminded friends and a crate of beer handy, but other than that, this film is without merit. Zombie or horror fans expecting a "proper" horror movie should avoid at all costs.
