Storyline

In a post-apocalypse society, 17-year-old Peggy lives with her over-protective mother and works in her restaurant. She misses her sister Anna, who died some time ago. When two couples of punks come to the place to eat some hamburgers, Peggy feels attracted to Jak, who invites her to go out on date with him later. Peggy goes out with Jak without telling her mother, and they go across town to a dark place, the Doom Room, where the master of ceremony is the ringmaster of a freak show with dead. The MC injects blood in the dead, and they dance on a ring for the exalted audience. When Peggy sees her undead sister Anna dancing in the show, the MC discloses the truth about her presence in the circus. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

the way it was filmed annoyed me
21 June 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Looking forward for the combination of director Tobe Hooper and Robert Englund it failed a bit. Not that Englund was bad, he dis a great job but the story was a bit weak and the way it was filmed annoyed me after a while. All those shaky shots and picture over picture didn't do this episode well. Not only that, there's not that much for horror buffs to find, there's no red stuff let even say gore to spot and the way the dead danced was a bit ridiculous.

The acting itself was above mediocre and Jessica Lowndes (Peggy) as a newcomer did very well. But the end was predictable too. It sometimes looked a bit like a mess in the 'Doom Room'. Was it the way it was directed or filmed I can't tell.

Not my favourite Dance Of The Dead and to be honest it was a bit remade again with Robert Englund in another turkey, Zombie Strippers (2008).
