The review note on the box remarked that this was the "american answer to 'Shaun of the Dead'"...so perhaps i had high expectations coming into this. First off, its a fun movie -- cheesy, funny, worth 90-120 minutes of your time. There are enough snippet funny moments and lines delivered with perfect timing to keep you interested (especially enjoyed the homage to 'Thriller')...but if you're looking for a Shaun of the Dead companion piece--this isn't it. While 'Shaun' mixed a perfect amount of suspense, humor, and gore, 'Dead & Breakfast' merely provided some humor and a whole lotta blood. This movie was worth a rent, just don't go into it with high expectations. I wouldn't place it next to my other zombie movies in my home collection, i would put it somewhere else...like probably back on the shelf at blockbuster. :-)
