The ex-addicted and paranoid Renee and her fiancé and former doctor Jeffrey move together to a remote house nearby the Mexican border. She meets Michael, who works in the area taking care of wind mills, and invites him to have dinner with Jeffrey and her. Sooner they find that the place is under siege of a hungry Mayan descendant family of zombies that was killed by an unknown murderer and cursed by an old ritual. Written by

Curse of the Maya was the original title but again, that doesn't attract the zombie fans. When they changed it to Dawn of the Living Dead it became noticed. But don't compare it with Romero stuff. This is pure exploitation. It contains bad acting, weird story lines, for example when she goes to bath she starts dreaming, when she wakes up she's out of bath and dressed but a few moments later she's back in bath. And the thing with the sun and the changing skies doesn't did the film any good. The colour grading is the worst you can see. Some scene's are underexposed, or filmed with the wrong colour temperature. But if you can stand that than you will have some bloody shots and even one gory shot of a beheading by the zombies. There is some gratuitous nudity, a strip that nothing had to do with the story. If you love exploitations than this is surely one for you otherwise you will have some questions when the end credits start rolling.
