A group of six friends are out in the rural south on a deer hunt (even though one of the six is blind), when they start hearing strange noises coming from the woods. An investigation of the sounds leads them to an old Confederate graveyard, which suddenly begins sprouting Rebel zombies. Like the living dead in every other movie, these zombies are hungry for human flesh, and soon set to chowing down on the hapless hunters. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Too bad for words
29 August 2001 | by anthracksSee all my reviews

I honestly cannot express to you in strong enough terms, DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE. I am normally a fan of B movies...I thought "Plan 9 From Outer Space" was hilarious, and "Return of the Living Dead" rests firmly as my favorite movie of all time.

But this work of unspeakable badness is just not worth seeing. There are points that are laughably bad, either due to the acting, camera work, writing, or god awful costuming and makeup, but for 99% of the time, it is just junk.

I don't want to go into detail on individual bad points--to do so would remind me of the movie, something I do NOT want. Don't listen to the other reviews that tell you it's a fun B-film, cause it isn't. The guy who called it a Z-film is right on. I'm ashamed to even have been born in the same year that produced this affront to mankind.

Summary: Worst movie ever. Don't watch it.
