For a cursed thousand years, lovers Tristan and Rachel have roamed the Earth looking to fill an emptiness that plagues their souls. During the eclipsed blood moon of August 27, 1969 they will fill that void.
In this Grindhouse throwback, it's up to a hippie chick, Sadie Hawkins, and a comic book-reading soda Jerk, Darrel Lee, to save the world, but not without a little help from a group of indie film rejects shooting a zombie film in an old west ghost town. Set in 1969, an ancient curse has spilled over into the world of the living, with werewolves, vampires, zombies, and bucket-loads of blood. Written by
The production went through 15 gallons of SFX Blood. They did all of the blood effects themselves. "More Blood!"yelled director Brian Skiba every day all day. In fact: the scene where Lucy is cursing Tristan and Rachel in the barn, the whole crew ended up covered in blood. See more »

A lot of people who watched this will undoubtedly not get the joke. And when I say "joke", I'm referring to the entire movie. But I don't mean that in a bad way. The whole movie is a put-on...a send up of the old days of grindhouse cinema. It just takes more of a mockery angle than a "homage" (which I'm now convinced is French for "intellectual property theft") angle that Tarantino and Rodriguez took in their big budget flicks. Yes, the audio is awful at some points. It's supposed to be. The movie is supposed to sound like the entire thing was dubbed in post production (hell, it probably was). And everything is meant to look cheesy and low budget. As for the plot, well, that's best left out. In typical grindhouse fashion there's about 10 different things going on at once with very few being related. There's zombies, demons, Satan, vampires (I think), werewolves (I think), aliens, and Ron Jeremy.
If you think about it, it's kind of a genius move. Don't have enough money to make that epic film you always wanted to make? No problem. Just make a movie that's supposed to look bad. Problem solved. All said I done I kind of enjoyed it in a hilariously-bad-but-on-purpose kind of way. That being said, I would definitely recommend a six pack of your favorite adult beverage.
