An "Almost Perfect" Bad Movie, 8 December 2007
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The ex-addicted and paranoid Renee (Amanda Baumann) and her fiancé and former doctor Jeffrey (Joe Estevez) move together to a remote house nearby the Mexican border. She meets Michael (David Heavener), 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.

"Curse of the Maya" is an "almost perfect" bad movie: the messy screenplay is absolutely senseless; the dialogs are simply ridiculous; the direction and acting are amateurish; the location is awfully poor. However, the make-up of the zombies and the art of the cover of the DVD are great, but I regret buying and watching this very low-budget movie. My vote is one.

Title (Brazil): "A Maldição Maya" ("The Maya Curse")
