Storyline

Single mother Grace is working in an ancient church restoring it and finds a hidden crypt that contains a book of resurrection. Father Cornelius asks her to go home and forget her findings. Her son Nathan is a sensitive and shy teenager bullied by Samson at school. He has a crush on his friend Jessica, but he does not declare his love to her. His best friends Diggs and Henry schedule a date for Nathan with Jessica, however her father grounds her in her bedroom and when Nathan calls Jessica, her father tells him that she has gone on a date with a good looking guy in a car. Jessica sneaks out through the window, but Nathan and Jessica fail to meet up with each other. When Jessica takes a ride in Kenneth's car, Nathan mistakenly believes that she is dating the schoolmate. He goes home, drinks whiskey and puts a rope around his neck. When Grace comes home, she opens Nathan's bedroom door and accidentally hangs her son. She then resurrects Nathan, but soon finds that something went wrong ... Written by Darkwalker173

Nice fun little zombie movie.
8 October 2012 | by atinderSee all my reviews

This movie got the bad taste out of my mouth, after seeing blood car, this movie however is was fun movie.

Even this movie had stereotype teens, who looked like they in mids 20's playing teens, if you can get past that.

You end up really enjoying this movie.

A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother, as a flesh-craving zombie

I found this movie so-what Original, with mum bringing back her son after he killed himself.

Also enjoyed some really decent funny moments, that work really well with the rest of the movie.

There were some really good bloody messy scenes, which were fun to watch. 7 out of 10
