Storyline

In a post-apocalypse society, 17-year-old Peggy lives with her over-protective mother and works in her restaurant. She misses her sister Anna, who died some time ago. When two couples of punks come to the place to eat some hamburgers, Peggy feels attracted to Jak, who invites her to go out on date with him later. Peggy goes out with Jak without telling her mother, and they go across town to a dark place, the Doom Room, where the master of ceremony is the ringmaster of a freak show with dead. The MC injects blood in the dead, and they dance on a ring for the exalted audience. When Peggy sees her undead sister Anna dancing in the show, the MC discloses the truth about her presence in the circus. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.
