Trivia

The cameraman filming the scene when the little angel zombie (Heidi Hinzman) is shot by the posse member was accidentally shot in the foot by the cardboard plug of the guns blank. The charge was more powerful than a normal blank and went through his shoe injuring his foot. This story was told by Bill Hinzman as a cautionary tale about making your own blanks. See more »

Goofs

flesh eater rocks!!!
22 October 2009 | by zombizombizombiSee all my reviews

Now this is no night of the living dead but what it is its fun great zombiploitation if you will.Starts off with some young people on a hayride going to drink beer and have some fun.This tractor riding dude unearthed zombie bill hinzman than all hell breaks loose lots of gore nudity and sleaze exploitation for sure the DVD is wonderful media blasters do a great job with their product and this is a fin example.If your a fan of zombies exploitation and cheesy 80s cinema buy this!Also its a zombie movie that happens to be set on Halloween sweet and yes the movie is somewhat of a rip off of the original night of the living dead but who cares its exploitation and its mighty entertaining.
