Storyline

The undertaker Fred is bankrupted and misses his former wife Helen. She has left him and is going to marry Captain Winston, whose daughter Rhonda is the girlfriend of Fred's assistant Jerry Gordon. Fred has accidentally developed an embalming formula that brings the dead back to life and he is able to control the zombies because they need a dose every hour to stay alive, otherwise they die. When Fred receives an eviction letter from the bank that intends to build a mall in the location of his funeral home with the agreement of Helen, he decides to use his zombies to steal money, pay the bank, achieve power and get Helen back. However, when Jerry accidentally drops the fluid of his formula, he loses the control of the situation in his mortuary and the dead seek revenge against him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The hotel scene between the hooker zombie and Jeff Fahey takes place in two different locations. The production was shut down for having expired permits so the scene was shot a few days later with The hooker zombie and an actor to double for Jeff Fahey. See more »

A Lot of Fun! C'mon guys, let's rate it for what it is...!
20 July 2012 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

I felt that I should write a brief review after seeing all the crappy ones about this film. Look, this isn't SUPPOSED to be Shakespeare, okay...? An argument that I use CONSTANTLY is compared to all the voluminous drivel out there I honestly feel that this movie was done well, within the confines of it's budget and subject matter.

First off, this kind of film is really hard to pull off; obviously 'REANIMATOR' is the absolute reigning master of this genre, hands down! Now this one is not nearly as clever, but in a toned down kind of way you DO get some pretty good humour throughout and some great lines, really! So, for the kind of movie that this OBVIOUSLY is, I feel that it was done very well and the director was able to bring out above average performances, even from the zombies, and from all involved. I LOVED Fahey's deadpan lines; GREAT stuff!!!
