Storyline

In the town of Colma, just south of San Francisco, the dead outnumber the living one thousand to one. Here, one wouldn't expect teenagers to burst out in song, or dance around cemeteries and streets. But, that's exactly what happens. Best pals Rodel, Billy, and Maribel find themselves in a state of limbo; fresh out of high school, they are just beginning to explore a new world of part-time mall jobs and crashing college parties. As newfound revelations and romances challenge their relationships with one another and their parents, the trio must assess what to hold onto, and how to best follow their dreams. It's a love song to the city, and to the residents who dream of a better (and more musical) life. Written by Christopher Au

Don't Believe The Reviews
26 May 2016 | by haunt_freakSee all my reviews

The reviews were written either by people who worked on the movie or people who KNOW someone who worked on the movie.

The singing in this is just plain awful. If you're going to make a musical, make sure you get actors who can sing. This was not interesting or memorable, just bad.

The characters are boring, uninteresting and it is difficult to care about any of them. Skip this one. Your eardrums will thank you.

And now, to fill 10 stupid lines, I will recite from Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky. "Twas Brillig and the Slithy Toves did Gyre and Gimble in the Wabe. All Mimsy were the Borogoves and the Mome Wraths Outgrabe."
