A young, unhappy married couple Rob and Kathy stop by the diner only to be followed by the arrival of Sheriff Duke Purdett.

Sheriff Duke: I remember 1974... My wife as so god damn beautiful. We had just gotten married and I didn't think things would get any better for me at the time. I had just started my first patrol and had my entire career ahead of me. She had told me she was pregnant and I remember I just sat down... I just sat down right where I was at. I think...

Works as a black comedy, but fails as zombie gorn
10 August 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I seem to be one of the few people who really liked this movie. Honestly, I'm a little surprised at all of my fellow B movie fans who proclaim how tolerant they are of low budgets, yet give this movie such a low rating.

I love the anti-hero Ken, a wise-ass serial killer whose victims mysteriously start to reanimate as zombies. He's easily the best part of the movie, and, admittedly, most of the movie revolves around him, rather than the zombies, which I'm sure ended up annoying a lot of zombie fans. If you go into this movie expecting a zombie bloodbath, you'll probably end up being a bit disappointed.

Speaking of which, there isn't really all that much gore in this movie, and what gore does exist tends to be rather low budget and amateurish. It's certainly not the worst that I've seen, but there are Troma movies with better gore effects. If you find Troma movies unwatchable, then you might want to avoid Die-ner.

Much of the humor in Die-ner is quite black, as befitting the subject matter and protagonist. Early on, Ken tells a talkative waitress that people spill their guts to him all the time. A lot of the scenes are played for dark humor, rather than gore. Pointless flashbacks, rambling back story, and repetitive, dreamy music make up a good chunk of the movie. This either works for you or it doesn't. I thought it was awesome, but most people seem to get bored out of their minds. I thought that they all contributed to the surreal atmosphere, while making fun of traditional horror movies.

It's not a masterpiece by any means, but I had a lot of fun. Perhaps something like this has a very limited appeal, but you'd think that the title would scare off most people expecting a serious, gut-wrenching zombie film. It works best as a black comedy and parody of zombie movies, and I'd recommend it mainly to Troma fans. It's not zany or exploitative enough to be a Troma movie, but it may appeal to fans of their low budget slasher/horror comedies.
