Trivia

According to Douglas Snauffer, his shared screenwriters credit on this movie was primarily contractual. He was hired to write an early draft of the script, but most of his material was discarded by director David P. Barton. "Dave had a very strong vision of where he wanted this movie to go," Snauffer has stated, "and he is a very capable writer. Dave did a great job of making the movie he wanted to make, and he deserves the credit for his work." See more »

Quotes

[repeated line, chanted by all the zombies]
Abi's Victims: Do you know what happens when you're dead and rotting? Your flesh turns putrid and your clothes start spotting. Your belly bloats up, your guts turn to chum, your eyeballs turn purple like overripe plums. Your skin turns black with a putrefaction gleam, pus drips from your pores like whipping cream. Yes, it's no fun being rotting and dead. It's no fun at all; enough has been said.

Bottom barrel for Full Moon
18 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I love Full Moon movies a great deal. I've been a fan of Charles Band's works in Empire and then Full Moon since the beginning. I've seen every single one, how could i not be a fan???

I have no idea why a no-budget horror movie like this got released by Full Moon. I honestly enjoy B-movies if they are good. Dead & Rotting was a true pain to sit through until the end. I got the impression this was made for under $10,000 and it looks like it too.

Where to begin? The entire look of the film just does not look ricorrect. I guess this was shot on digital camera, and i despise that cheap look. The acting was another bad thing, almost every performance was atrocious and shallow. Bad acting can work in some instances, however bad acting and a mediocre script will almost always fail. Well there's Troma films, but D&R isn't even similar to their low-budget comedic style. D&R's main problem is a script that is too slow with nothing new or inventive for the genre.

I give Dead & Rotting a 2 stars rating out of a possible 10 stars rating. I've seen worse horror movies before, but not very many.
