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... I was in Dave Solinski's garage when I got the call and I just sat right down on the ground. At first I was so... happy. I was the happiest son of a bitch on the ...

First of all, I don't understand how this movie can end up with "KFZ - Kentucky Fried Zombie" on the movie cover. It just doesn't make sense, and is just a lawsuit waiting to happen.
I enjoy zombie movies tremendously, and tend to sit down and watch just about anything even remotely zombie. And it is extremely rare that I have to give up on a zombie movie. Unfortunately I had to give up on "Die-ner (Get It?)". Why? Well because of the horrible acting, and the even worse make-up and effects. The zombies in this movie were so bad that I was laughing most of the time. You just got to love the "let's paint their faces gray, but forget about the neck and the rest of the body" mindset. It is just so 70's and 80's, and it doesn't work in this day and age.
The story in "Die-ner (Get It?)", well as far as I got into the movie, then it is about a loner coming into a late open diner and having a conversation with a waitress. But he turns out to be a killer and does what he does best. More late night visitor come to the diner. But those killed just will not stay dead, but come back as zombies.
Zombies? Well, gray face-painted shambling corpses! I am certain that there is an audience out there for these kind of low budget zombie movies. I, however, am just not part of that audience. And I am more than certain that I will never make a second trip back to this movie to finish it. I made it about halfway through and gave up out of sheer boredom and stupidity radiating from the screen.
