Trivia

According to Douglas Snauffer, his shared screenwriters credit on this movie was primarily contractual. He was hired to write an early draft of the script, but most of his material was discarded by director David P. Barton. "Dave had a very strong vision of where he wanted this movie to go," Snauffer has stated, "and he is a very capable writer. Dave did a great job of making the movie he wanted to make, and he deserves the credit for his work." See more »

Quotes

[repeated line, chanted by all the zombies]
Abi's Victims: Do you know what happens when you're dead and rotting? Your flesh turns putrid and your clothes start spotting. Your belly bloats up, your guts turn to chum, your eyeballs turn purple like overripe plums. Your skin turns black with a putrefaction gleam, pus drips from your pores like whipping cream. Yes, it's no fun being rotting and dead. It's no fun at all; enough has been said.

DEAD AND ROTTING boasts Debbie Rochon in a pretty lengthy role, which, speaking as a fan of hers, is always a good thing!!!
29 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't find DEAD AND ROTTING to be as bad as others who have commented. Being into low-budget b-movies, I have seen the best and the worst. I have been a fan of Charles Band since TRANCERS, and I also have been a fan of Full Moon since the first SUBSPECIES. It is very discouraging that Full Moon seems to have faded from existence, having not released a film since 2002. I am hopeful that they will rise from the ashes like the phoenix one day. Although DEAD AND ROTTING may not be great, it is by far NOT the worst. The worst, of course, being Australia's 1982? movie ENDPLAY, about the guy in a wheelchair and his brother. Now THERE'S a movie that deserves reviews like the ones these people gave. Furthermore, DEAD AND ROTTING boasts Debbie Rochon in a pretty lengthy role, which, speaking as a fan of hers, can never be bad and could TOTALLY redeem any movie, except, of course, ENDPLAY.
