Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
Eight college students travelling to Florida for Spring Break stumble into a remote town in Georgia, where they are set upon by the residents who are out to avenge their deaths by Union troops over one hundred years earlier during the Civil War.
Director Matthew Luetwyler and actor Brent David Fraser (The Drifter) had been constant comrades in the early 1990s, in a group of guys that hung out together nearly every day, including actors Billy Burke and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but hadn't seen each other for the better part of a decade when they re-joined on the the "Dead & Breakfast" set to work together.

The review note on the box remarked that this was the "american answer to 'Shaun of the Dead'"...so perhaps i had high expectations coming into this. First off, its a fun movie -- cheesy, funny, worth 90-120 minutes of your time. There are enough snippet funny moments and lines delivered with perfect timing to keep you interested (especially enjoyed the homage to 'Thriller')...but if you're looking for a Shaun of the Dead companion piece--this isn't it. While 'Shaun' mixed a perfect amount of suspense, humor, and gore, 'Dead & Breakfast' merely provided some humor and a whole lotta blood. This movie was worth a rent, just don't go into it with high expectations. I wouldn't place it next to my other zombie movies in my home collection, i would put it somewhere else...like probably back on the shelf at blockbuster. :-)
