Die and Let Live (2006)

Zombies escape from a medical testing center and crash a party, forcing a group of teenagers to fight flesh-eaters - and their own hormones - in this horror-comedy in the tradition of Return of the Living Dead, Superbad, and The Sandlot.

When Benny tries to impress his crush Stephanie by throwing a party (with the help of his friend Smalls), he finds himself in quite a dilemma: a nearby medical testing facility has had an outbreak of test subjects for an experimental virus that revives the dead. When the infected undead show up to the party, it's up to Benny and Smalls to try to save the day. Written by Justin Channell

A Great Piece of Entertainment
13 May 2008 | by tcoll32See all my reviews

This is a movie that will just make you enjoy watching it. It won't make you think too hard and it won't turn the horror world on it's ear, but it will make you laugh. If you are like me you will laugh a lot in this film. A basic synopsis without giving anything away is that there is a zombie outbreak and a pair of slackers throwing a party are caught in the middle of it. Now you would think the most important thing would be to find a way to survive but no... they have to get the pizzas from Bambino's because they are the best pizzas in the entire town's history. Forget the fact that it is the apocalypse just get the pizzas and everything will be okay. The film is shot in typical guerrilla fashion with just a couple locations and a lot of friends willing to be torn up and become zombies. They even got Henry Couto and Debbie Rochon to do cameos (Debbie is just a voice over but still it is Debbie). Like all independent horror films you have to look past the films flaws due to lacking anything looking like a budget to spend on cinematography, actors, and special effects and just enjoy the story. So if you want to just turn off the brain for a couple of hours and enjoy a fun film then this is the film for you.
