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.

Trivia

Actor and Writer Billy Burke was originally meant to star in the role of "The Drifter", but he landed a role in the film Ladder 49 (2004), and had to take it. So, he suggested to Matthew Leutwyler that their friend Brent David Fraser would be a good choice to replace him. See more »

Goofs

As the female character fights off the zombies attacking her, the camera shot from the second floor reveals the walls of the staircase are covered in red wallpaper. However, as her friends get into the house and save her on the same staircase, there's no wallpaper but blank walls. See more »

Funny and Entertaining
8 March 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While heading to Galveston in a RV for the wedding of a friend, the driver Johnny (Oz Perkins) gets lost and arrive in the small town of Lovelock and his friends Kate (Bianca Lawson), Sara (Ever Carradine), Melody (Gina Phillips), Christian (Jeremy Sisto) and David (Erik Palladino) decide to spend the night in the Bed and Breakfast owned by Mr. Robert Wise (David Carradine). David has an argument with the chef of the inn, Henri (Diedrich Bader), and when the chef is found dead and Mr. Wise has a heart attack in the middle of the night, the local Sheriff (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) suspects of the group and asks his assistant Enus (Mark Kelly) to take the key of their trailer and stay in Lovelock during the investigation. Then the Sheriff arrests a drifter (Brent David Fraser) that becomes his prime suspect. When the clumsy Johnny accidentally breaks a box of Mr. Wise, he releases the fiend Kuman Thong and the evil spirit possesses the locals transforming them into zombies.

Matthew Leutwyler certainly wrote and directed "Dead & Breakfast" with the intention of making a cult-movie. Unfortunately his target is never reached, but this gore comedy is funny and a worthwhile entertainment. There are good lines and most of the characters are likable, and one of the best moments if the phone call of the maid of honor Kate to the bride Lisa, with a hilarious dialog. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Adivinhe Quem Vem Para Morrer" ("Guess Who is Coming to Die?")
