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

this is one sick and twisted movie.there isn't a lot of gore,but what gore there is,is pretty extreme.i also thought there was some continuity problems.some of the scenes don't seem to have any context,so it is hard to follow.it's a B movie,for sure,but,despite its problems,i thought it was OK.i liked the music and the atmosphere,and the story was interesting,though not completely original.think Evil Dead and a bit of Child's Play.i didn't think the acting was too bad.i don't think it was great,but i have seen much worse.towards the end,there is a hysterical scene,which sorta reminded me of the Child's Play movies.for me Curse of the Maya,AKA Dawn of the Living Dead(nothing to do with George A. Romero's "Dead" series)is a 6/10
