Caught this at the Bijou, 28 May 2009
Author: ckyjackson from Eugene, Oregon

No one else has posted a comment on this so I guess I'll be the first. I caught a screening of this last week at the Bijou in Eugene, Oregon. The movie centers around a nerdy college student named Norton Pincus, a troubled science major and his attractive love interest, Wendy Purvis. Norton's body is taken hostage by undead teenager Melvin Purvis, who happens to be Wendy's half-brother. I won't spoil too much of the movie but there's gore a-plenty and some very funny moments.

For the miniscule budget, the cinematography is very nice and while the writing feels like it could use another polish it's a strong effort from a first-time film maker.
