Dance of the Dead (2005)

** (out of 4)

Tobe Hooper's part of the Masters of Horror series about a post apocalypse world and the teens who are taking it over. I've read that this was some sort of "message" film but the whole message was lost on me and I was never able to get into the film. The thing left me very bored and Robert England was rather tiresome.

I think this is one of the weakest films from the first season but Hooper would hit back the following season with one of the best. Hooper has fallen a lot over the past few decades and this film is just one of them.
