My Dead Girlfriend: A Comedy Horror, 20 December 2006
Author: Grimm-Grimm from United States

This is a low budget comedy horror independent film. If you cannot appreciate your comedy horror zombie flicks then this movie isn't for you. If you like to be entertained by funny zombies and don't mind the non-professional look, then you might want to check this out.

Synopsis: This movie reminded me so much of "The Return of the Living Dead 3" because it uses a similar plot idea. A couple in love fall victim to a silly accident. The boyfriend loves her so much he cannot bear her death. Luckily, or unluckily, she comes back to life. Though she just isn't the same. Her bones are cracking as she awkwardly moves around and the boyfriend struggles to keep her new zombie persona a secret. There are some great funny lines in the movie. At one point, the female friend accuses the boyfriend of beating Amy (zombie girlfriend) after seeing her new Zombie look. The boyfriend trying to hide the truth frantically says along the lines of, "Your right, I I I, I beat her...I I I can't help it she just pisses me off."

Cast: The cast is played by Brett's friends and students. A Caitlin Delaney plays Amy the Zombie girlfriend. This girl totally reminds me of a cute and funny ex-girlfriend. Her expressions and awkward Zombie acting are both great and funny. You have your naive drinking partying characters. The 2 girls, one of which is the short skirt wearing beauty. Personally, I loved the characters. Unfortunately the horror special effects are barely there. Their are lots of cutaways.

I feel one thing for sure, Brett should do a sitcom. Judging on this movie and how it uses funny misunderstanding and acting, Brett might be a Seinfeld fan like myself. If he had money, good special FX, he could make a better zombie flick no doubt. In the movie their are obvious advertisements such as the comic book t-shirt wearing hot girl. The brewing company shirt showing in obvious full view. The couch with a huge label on it (L.L. Bean Manufacturing w/Phone Number). But I doubt that those companies gave much money at all. Hopefully someday he gets someone who believes in him and gives him a chance and funding. But from what I read, he doesn't make movies for money and just enjoys it anyway.

This is a great campy horror movie to watch with your friends. It's like watching some sort of new Seinfeld Zombie flick. If you go into it with an open mind you might just like it. For what it is, I think it's good. If you go into this movie expecting Hollywood picture, you will most likely think this was a ridiculous movie.
