Director Matthew Luetwyler and actor Brent David Fraser (The Drifter) had been constant comrades in the early 1990s, in a group of guys that hung out together nearly every day, including actors Billy Burke and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but hadn't seen each other for the better part of a decade when they re-joined on the the "Dead & Breakfast" set to work together.

I had to post a comment as the previous one was far too harsh on this film.
I saw this film with quite a lot of expectations of it and was pleasantly surprised that it didn't let them down too much. That's not to say it is the greatest horror comedy, but it it really entertaining.
Caradines appearance seems to have more to do with having a famous face, than anything, but his appearance it welcome.
The "crazy" songs in the film vary from being a reasonable narrative device to being incredibly grating, but i guess in the spirit of how the film is presented they are okay. They could put people right off the film though, if they are too humourless.
So it's no Evil Dead 2 or Bloodsucking Pharoahs, but it a good watch for your horror fans and your non horror fans looking for a light horror romp to kill an evening.
