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

The most heartwarming film I've seen
12 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite the title this film is really pretty charming and the most original zombie film I seen in ages. The gore is nice and grimy, different to the usual..

I couldn't believe how sensitive the attitudes were to the retards in the film. wtf?

There's a nice, genuine, 80s vibe flowing through the whole thing which just about does it, really. All the 90s and 00s zombie offerings were pretty dull. surely everyone's agreed on that.

this one rocks like shaun of the dead only much nastier and with hot girls.

definitely a 7 at least

bless
