Storyline

The "DED" heads of the Delta Epsilon Delta Fraternity house all know how to party - expect for Edgar Allan Lovecraft. Edgar would rather spend his time locked away in his room trying to find a cure to death itself. When Edgar develops a successful reanimation serum and uses it to bring a severed head back to life he declares that he has at last solved the mystery of life and death. That attracts the attention of local gangster, Mugsy who wants Edgar to use the miraculous serum to revive his murdered moll, Hotlips. Things don't go to plan however, and the reanimated Hotlips turns out to be an insufferable shrew with a nasty habit of decapitating the student body. Can Edgar, Mugsy, his henchman Bruno and Fred the severed head stop her? Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

For a glorified home movie, not bad
4 November 2011 | by (Naples, FL) – See all my reviews

So, after being subjected to the OTHER movie on this tape (Humanoids from Atlantis) I didn't have much hope for this movie. I was actually pleasantly surprised.

Sure, it has no budget and the pinnacle of its special effects is a hand puppet but the movie actually is quite charming. This is a movie that KNOWS it is a bad movie and doesn't take itself seriously. The humor is hit or miss, but when it hits you can actually get a genuine laugh out of it.

This is definitely independent video at its cheapest (obviously shot during the camcorder boom), but the director actually takes pains to set up some shots and put a little style into this.

This isn't fine cinema, but it is certainly better than 90% of the films released by Troma, and is certainly worth a watch.
