Storyline

While illegally selling one canister of Trioxyin-5, Charlie Garrison is murdered by a zombie. His nephew Julian Garrison finds two canisters hidden in the attic of his house with his girlfriend Jenny and they ask their friend Cody to analyze and research the chemical product. Cody finds that the composition of the product is very similar to ecstasy and he processes the chemical, making a large quantity of a drug that he called "Z" to make money. Using the services of the local drug dealer, they sell "Z" in the college campus. In the Halloween, the DJ and Jenny's brother Jeremy organizes a rave party. Meanwhile, Julian, Jenny and Cody disclose that the drug transform the users in zombies, and with the support of two weird agents, they try to stop the distribution of "Z".

The Zombie Rave
12 August 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

While illegally selling one canister of Trioxyin-5, Charlie Garrison (Peter Coyote) is murdered by a zombie. His nephew Julian Garrison (John Keefe) finds two canisters hidden in the attic of his house with his girlfriend Jenny (Jenny Mollen) and they ask their friend Cody (Cory Hardrict) to analyze and research the chemical product. Cody finds that the composition of the product is very similar to ecstasy and he processes the chemical, making a large quantity of a drug that he called "Z" to make money. Using the services of the local drug dealer, they sell "Z" in the college campus. In the Halloween, the DJ and Jenny's brother Jeremy (Cain Mihnea Manoliu) organizes a rave party. Meanwhile, Julian, Jenny and Cody disclose that the drug transform the users in zombies, and with the support of two weird agents, they try to stop the distribution of "Z".

"Return of the Living Dead: Rave to the Grave" is flawed and the two men in black try to be funny but they are not. However, there are funny moments and for a B-movie, I had a great surprise and I liked it. The character of Peter Coyote dies maybe with less than 10 minutes and his participation has only the intention to lure the viewer with his name in the credits. I liked also the performance of the gorgeous Jenny Mollen, and I expect to see her again to evaluate her skills. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Retorno dos Mortos-Vivos: Rave" ("The Return of the Living Dead: Rave")
