Zombies and infidelity make for an extremely deadly combination!
Halloween in a quiet small town. Suburban housewife Katie (nicely played by Becky Biggs) discovers that her no-count faithless husband Brian (a perfectly slimy turn by co-writer Nate Hill) is cheating on her and accidentally kills the jerk. Things go from bad to worse when hapless Katie finds out that her neighborhood is being overrun by a ferocious horde of cannibalistic zombies. Director/co-writer Dave R. Watkins ably creates a strong sense of mounting dread and builds a considerable amount of suspense which culminates in a startlingly bleak and violent climax. Better still, Watkins sustains an admirably tough and gritty tone that stays grimly true to itself to the literal bitter end. Of course, this being a zombie horror outing we naturally get a handy helping of graphic gore and grisly carnage. Kudos are definitely in order for the uniformly sound acting by the whole cast, with stand-out work from Biggs, Hill, Kelly A. Young as Katie's cheery, sympathetic friend Miranda, and Chris Burns as Miranda's husband Seth. Watkins' slick cinematography gives the picture an impressively polished look. Ron McLellen's rockin' syncopated score likewise does the trick. Plus you gotta give extra points to a fright flick that features a lethal zombie dog in it! A nifty movie.
