The Zombies ARE FAMILY !!!
27 December 2006 | by guestar57See all my reviews

EVIL GRAVE: Curse Of The Maya(Dawn Of The Living Dead/UK title) www.davidheavener.com Released thru ACTION CAT Enetrtainment. Starring David Heavener,Todd Bridges and Joe Estevez. DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS, That's what hold this movie together. Never thought someone could explain what that line meant to me,Heavener takes us on a journey of explaining ,"We need to let loved ones lie in peace". The make-up is great, The acting is mostly there. Todd Bridges is over the top as the comic aspect,with some interesting to say the least costume thoughts and under-used. Joe Estevez is really going that extra thespian mile, For once.David Heavener is getting away from his macho, I'M THE HERO shtick, And making us believe he has many colors. The most eerie aspect is that it's a mayan family of zombies, Great poster art has a vivid depiction of the familia. This film should do well for the fledgling ACTION CAT VOD !
