Storyline

Six friends take a road trip to Galveston in an RV for the wedding of their friend, Kelly. The driver, Johnny, gets lost and they arrive in the small town of Lovelock and his friends Sara, Kate, Melody, Christian, and David, decide to spend the night in the Bed and Breakfast owned by the creepy Mr. Robert Wise. David has an argument with the chef of the inn, Henri, and when the chef is found dead and Mr. Wise has a heart attack in the middle of the night, the local Sheriff suspects the group of travelers and tells his Deputy, Enus to seize the keys to their RV and stay in Lovelock for the duration of the investigation. Then the Sheriff arrests "The Mysterious Drifter" who soon becomes his prime suspect. When the clumsy Johnny accidentally breaks an ancient exotic wooden box belonging to Mr. Wise, he releases the terrible, monstrous "Kuman Thong" and the evil spirit held inside escapes and possesses all the local town folk, transforming them into zombies. Ultimately, "The Mysterious ... Written by Horror Harry and Gory Gary

Not quite Shaun of the Dead...
24 February 2006 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

On the DVD cover of this movie, the tagline reads, "The US answer to Shaun of the Dead!" That right there isn't a good sign, because usually when movies try to rely on the success of a different movie to sell their own, you'll wind up with schlock.

I think that's the word I would use to describe this movie. Schlock. It wasn't completely schlock, but it was still schlock. I would refer to it as mediocre schlock, I suppose. In other words, although this movie was pretty bad (and not bad as in 80's Michael Jackson bad, but bad as in awful), I will admit that it indeed had a few shining moments.

The comedy was for the most part particularly unfunny. That Zachariah guy who showed up randomly to narrate the story in song was usually hit-or-miss. A couple of his bits were funny and cleverly written, but there were just as many lame songs. The decapitated head puppet was quite humorous, and there were some comical deaths here and there. That's about all that was funny. The rest of the movie was filled with lame, unfunny dialogue and many failed jokes.

The gore was pretty cool. There was a particularly bloody chainsaw scene that was probably the best part of the movie. Some decapitations and gunshots here and there provided some excellent gore, and I will give them kudos for that.

The storyline was boring, however. So much of the movie tended to drag on for way too long, and I think the carnage doesn't really even begin until the movie is almost over. That's definitely not good for a horror movie.

Good gore and a couple slightly humorous bits here and there entertained me a fair amount, but I was as equally bored with the crappy storyline and tired comic relief.

Might be good for a one time watch, but only if you're really bored, and there's, like, nothing else at all to watch. Not even Reading Rainbow.
