Goofs

As the female character fights off the zombies attacking her, the camera shot from the second floor reveals the walls of the staircase are covered in red wallpaper. However, as her friends get into the house and save her on the same staircase, there's no wallpaper but blank walls. See more »

Quotes

Kate: Do you know how long we've been dating?
David: You're kidding, right?
Kate: I'm asking you a question!
David: And you think this is the right time to ask a question like that?
Kate: [laughs] there's always some excuse for not wanting to talk about these things.
David: I think defending ourselves from a demon spirit that's now inhabiting your best friend's cousin ranks pretty damn high on the list of good excuses for not wanting to analyze our relationship right now. Could-could you hand me that loaded pipe so I can take care of...

Alternate Versions

The Unrated version is the director's cut that was originally given an NC-17 by the MPAA for violence and gore. Nearly 15 seconds was cut out before the film received the R rating, and these included shots of the zombie's partly severed head and more footage of David with the chainsaw in his neck. See more »

Hilarious splatter horror/comedy- I laughed from beginning to end.
25 September 2004 | by ben_retanSee all my reviews

I was at a screening of Dead and Breakfast tonight at the Sidewalk Film Festival here in Birmingham and really enjoyed the movie.

Warning- this movie is not for the weak of stomach. Gore content is out of the roof. However if you are a fan of splatter comedies such as the Evil Dead series, this movie is a must see.

The premise of the movie is your stereotypical horror movie set up. On the way to a wedding a group of semi-strangers get stuck in a small town overnight and someone gets killed.

The highly comedic twist to this horror is apparent even after the first killing as one of the group spends a good thirty seconds trying to run away from the dead body and instead slipping in a pool of blood over and over.

This movie was very much influenced by the Evil Dead series (in fact you can even see an Evil Dead poster in the closet where they first find the chainsaw) but does the comedy even better.

The appropriately over-the-top music of Zach Selwyn serves as a good and humorous progression between the scenes. He features original songs such as "Comin to kill ya", "Possessed" and "Quiet Little Town".

This was one of the best movies that I've seen in a very long time and I would give it a 9/10.
