Storyline

When a zombie plague infects Camp Special Dude, a dude ranch for the mentally handicapped, a ragtag band of campers and counselors struggles to survive the night. Led by the indifferent, nun-chuck-wielding head counselor, Mac, and his wheelchair-bound sister Dale, the unlikely heroes fight their way off the mountain as, one by one, they're picked off and join the ranks of the walking dead. It's a campy stampede of blood, boobs and gore as some "very special" people show that they can kick some serious undead ass. Written by Jared Tweedie

Don't bother seeing this movie.
21 October 2006 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Hollywood Film Festival. In my opinion (and the opinion of my zombie-loving friends), there are only two things that this movie has going for it: the poster and the premise.

The fact of the matter is the movie itself isn't funny and isn't scary. On top of that, it's SO damn dark that you can't tell what's happening for most of the movie. Maybe it's gory. I don't know. I couldn't tell in that sea of black. Don't bother seeing it.

Public service announcement: the other review of this film on IMDb was submitted by one of the lead actresses... so take it with a giant grain of salt. No... best to ignore it altogether. It just isn't true.
