After a long conversation with the diner's lone waitress Rose, Ken kills her and promptly delivers the same fate to the diner's cook Fred. As Ken cleans up the bloody mess and deposits Rose and Fred in the walk-in freezer, company arrives. A young, unhappy married couple Rob and Kathy stop by the diner only to be followed by the arrival of Sheriff Duke Purdett. Ken now finds himself in the middle of a rousing game of cat and mouse which he manages well until the unthinkable happens. Back from the dead, Rose and Fred emerge from the freezer and start walking around! Once an unflappable serial killer, Ken now holds the young couple and wounded sheriff captive, trying frantically to escape the zombie predators. Written by Vision Films

Microbudget horror delivers
25 February 2012 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Die(ner) is a simple little horror film made for very, very little money. When accepting that, one can find quite a lot of enjoyment out of it.

It's about a serial killer who murders a waitress and short-order cook during the graveyard shift of a roadside diner, only to run into some problems. The first is an arguing couple who come in and want to be served and the second is that his victims are about to come back to life as zombies. Throw in an old sheriff, some wry dialogue, and some originality and you have the recipe for a fun little microbudget horror movie.

The only drawback is, as with most low budget films, the action is low and some of the performances are stiff, but the lead playing the serial killer is quite charismatic. Just give it a chance, especially if you're disillusioned by Hollywood horror movies.
