Storyline

After finding a mysterious film reel hidden in their ceiling, the well-meaning staff of a struggling movie theater assume that the film is an old B-movie preview trailer and play it before a midnight screening of the timeless George A. Romero masterpiece, 'Night of the Living Dead'. When the film is revealed to be a long-dead Nazi scientist's mind control experiment, their audience of horror movie fanatics is transformed into a mob of mindless zombies with a fierce hunger for the flesh of the living! Ten survivors struggle to stay alive as the cinema is overrun by shambling hordes of the undead, while outside, ruthless government agents plot to halt the spread of the mysterious outbreak by any means necessary. Sometimes creepy, sometimes campy, 'Dead at the Box Office' pays tribute to the low budget horror films of the '70s and '80s. Combining the elements of these "B" classics with a fresh twist on the zombie origin, 'Dead at the Box Office' is a tongue-in-cheek salute to horror fans... Written by D@BO HQ

Loved it!
30 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most original INDIE horror comedy I have seen yet! We need more horror comedy! Keep up the good work guys! This movie needs to be remade on a big budget level and I hope Hollywood takes a good hard look at this and makes it happen. Knowing this movie was made on a shoestring budget makes a person appreciate all the hard work and effort it takes to make a movie. Most norms out there have no idea how much dedication, time, and personal expense a movie takes to make. It takes a lot of dedicated friends and help to make it happen. These guys appeared to have all of that and hats off to them for getting the chance to make their dream come true. Anyone who bashes efforts made on this level should be ashamed of themselves! Those out there that undermine INDIE movies are basically envious morons who are too lazy to get off of their dead butts and do the same. If you did you would appreciate ALL Indie movies. Good luck guys and keep true to your dreams!
