Storyline

After finding a mysterious film reel hidden in their ceiling, the well-meaning staff of a struggling movie theater assume that the film is an old B-movie preview trailer and play it before a midnight screening of the timeless George A. Romero masterpiece, 'Night of the Living Dead'. When the film is revealed to be a long-dead Nazi scientist's mind control experiment, their audience of horror movie fanatics is transformed into a mob of mindless zombies with a fierce hunger for the flesh of the living! Ten survivors struggle to stay alive as the cinema is overrun by shambling hordes of the undead, while outside, ruthless government agents plot to halt the spread of the mysterious outbreak by any means necessary. Sometimes creepy, sometimes campy, 'Dead at the Box Office' pays tribute to the low budget horror films of the '70s and '80s. Combining the elements of these "B" classics with a fresh twist on the zombie origin, 'Dead at the Box Office' is a tongue-in-cheek salute to horror fans... Written by D@BO HQ

Tons of fun
15 December 2007 | by lupineauraSee all my reviews

This movie was so much fun! Classic "B" horror movie, well done without taking itself too seriously. The plot line was clever and original, yet included some of the best parts of the zombie "formula."

Two of the actors did a great job- Casey Kirkpatrick ("Eric") and Isaiah Robinson ("Curtis"). Who would have thought that cute kid from Hook would show up in an indy zombie flick? I also liked the use of public domain film and nods to cult classics.

After watching it, one of my main thoughts was that if this movie had had a Hollywood budget, it would have been a blockbuster. I really hope this troupe makes another flick!
