[after finding Curtis and his date dead in his car]
What a waste.
I thought you didn't like Curtis.
I'm talkin' about that ass!
Well, at least he died happy.

Besides the profanity noted above, all scenes of drug use have been taken out on TV too. This makes the ending very odd (Anton mysteriously has smoke in his mouth but we never see where it came from). Some blood/gore has been taken out, and some nudity has been taken out too. See more »
I thought this was going to be just another dumb teen comedy. After watching the first 10 minutes, I was convinced it was, and was ready to try something else. Well, I am glad I stayed with it. It was very funny and a combination comedy and horror film. Yes, it's humor geared more for teens but people far older than 15 should still get a lot of laughs out of this.
Warning: some of the scenes are pretty gross, at least for a comedy, but that's what made those particularly scenes funny. Comedy and horror mix well together, anyway.
The film reminded me a bit of "American Werewolf in London" with the "undead" kids. Despite the absurdity of it, there are a couple of good message in here....but, generally, this is purely escapist fun and nothing else.
