Quotes

Tom Rennigan: And here, I thought that stinky smell was bile.
Don Collier: What're you talkin' about?
Tom Rennigan: I'm talkin' about fleas, Donny. Mindless hopping vermin, ofttimes carried by mangy strays, and by people of questionable nature. People who turn backs on friends and the like.
Don Collier: I just want to live, Tom. That's all any of us want, is to live.
Tom Rennigan: No one lives. End of the day, Donny, we're all chalkmarks.

Blair Witch Zombies
4 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

I saw this weird little movie years ago at a friend's house, and no one else seems to have ever heard of it. A military germ warfare satellite crash lands in a small town, turning its inhabitants into zombies. A few people are also in the town, including a documentary film crew who believed the satellite was a UFO. This movie was shot on video, and like Blair Witch Project, pretends to be a true account of actual events. It's not perfect, and perhaps someone should have told the director to ease off just a tad on the blood and gore, but Dead End has moments of comic genius. The zombies are great! not their makeup, but their characters. One zombie endlessly drags a dead dog around the block, stopping at fire hydrants, while another zombie, a postman, walks up and down empty streets, placing items into mailboxes; rocks, dead birds, fingers, and so on, while several zombies dressed as characters from The Rocky Horror Picture Show just stand patiently in front of a closed theater throughout the entire picture, never chasing or eating anyone. Perhaps too many ideas for such a low budget, but filled with in-jokes for film and television buffs, and some of the most truly grotesque death scenes ever imagined.
