Remember, they're cadavers - not zombies
8 May 2012 | by (Ottumwa, IA United States) – See all my reviews

I had the honor and the privilege of viewing this film at a screening organized by Insane Mike of Prescribed Films. Thirty of us horror fans crowded into a small shop to take part in the viewing of a film few of us had heard of and even less had seen. What unfolded on the screen before us that night was something we never expected and will never forget.

With director Joe Zerull in attendance, those few of us witnessed a madcap, macabre, spectacle not seen since the glory days of Evil Dead and Re-Animator. I could not have hoped for more out of this film: the humor, timing, acting, and gore were top notch and deserving of far more than the limited release this film received.

My best advice to all the self-proclaimed horror aficionados, buffs, and collectors out there is to add this film to your collection as soon as possible. I have no doubt that in time, it will rank among such heavyweights as listed above as the start of a new breed of horror. For in a time where zombies are around every corner, the Steadicam has seemingly never been invented, and the best horror films have subtitles, Joe and his crew say give me a mop, a plunger, and a bandanna, and we'll clean up this mess.
