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

An Innovative Take on Zombie's
13 November 2007 | by MooVFan820See all my reviews

My original expectations were not the highest but this turned out to be a great movie! The acting was good but the key was the innovative story line. Kudos to the writers on a job well done! I'm sure we will be seeing some of your movies on the big screen one day!

Although this movie followed the typical classic zombie movie plot, Dead at the Box Office had a unique twist that keeps you on your toes. It starts out with a few movie buffs working in a classic horror theater then all hell breaks loose. In addition to all the scary scenes, there were quite a few times where I found myself laughing out loud.

I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a scary funny movie.
