Storyline

Motel Halali is an ideal place. Isolated deep in the forest, not a living soul turns up all the livelong year except the staff. This is a perfect place for Dr. Reinis's (Jaroslav Dusek) course designed to help people find meaning in life. Course participants learn something about what it means to live and even more about what it means to survive. That's because a zombie comes stalking out of a forest smelling of needles, decay, and blood. Our heroes must stand alone against it, without hope of help, without a chance in this most desolate, Godforsaken spot in Bohemia. Written by Czech film center

Awesome Movie! Great up and coming director!
9 May 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York and it was awesome! I had a terrific time discussing this movie with the director, whom I think has an excellant sense of humor and definitely has his fingers on the pulse of comedy / horror films. I thought the movie was well shot, particularly with the budgetary limitations he encountered. The actors were well laid out and had just enough background to make me care about what happened to them. The movie included some film/story tricks I haven't seen used so effectively before (such as the slow-motion close ups and the rewind effect at the end of the film - hope I didn't spoil it for anyone!).

All in all, a great film that should be watched by anyone and everyone who even vaguely likes comedy/horror. A true classic that will certainly go down in history with other comedy/horror greats, such as Evil Dead 2. 5 stars out of 5!
