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

Made by people that remember how films were meant to be!
30 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can honestly say it is the most interesting and refreshing take on zombie films i have seen in years. It takes a tried and true film genre and puts a spin on it that will leave you actually wondering where a zombie film will go. While dialog can be long at times. What zombie film doesn't suffer from this. The special effects and action will quickly grab your attention.

But more then anything the well thought out story makes this one of my favorite independent films of all time. Zombie fan or not, Dead at the Box Office will leave you remembering what a good story can actually do for a film.
