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

Hilarious splatter horror/comedy- I laughed from beginning to end.
25 September 2004 | by (Birmingham, Alabama) – See all my reviews

I was at a screening of Dead and Breakfast tonight at the Sidewalk Film Festival here in Birmingham and really enjoyed the movie.

Warning- this movie is not for the weak of stomach. Gore content is out of the roof. However if you are a fan of splatter comedies such as the Evil Dead series, this movie is a must see.

The premise of the movie is your stereotypical horror movie set up. On the way to a wedding a group of semi-strangers get stuck in a small town overnight and someone gets killed.

The highly comedic twist to this horror is apparent even after the first killing as one of the group spends a good thirty seconds trying to run away from the dead body and instead slipping in a pool of blood over and over.

This movie was very much influenced by the Evil Dead series (in fact you can even see an Evil Dead poster in the closet where they first find the chainsaw) but does the comedy even better.

The appropriately over-the-top music of Zach Selwyn serves as a good and humorous progression between the scenes. He features original songs such as "Comin to kill ya", "Possessed" and "Quiet Little Town".

This was one of the best movies that I've seen in a very long time and I would give it a 9/10.
