In Los Angeles, a fallen soldier who has joined the ranks of the living dead reunites with his best friend in order to deal with the city's drug dealers and killers - a perfect way to collect the blood that one of them so desperately needs.
The night after his funeral, Bart, a soldier killed in Iraq gets up out of his grave and seeks out his best friend Joey. At dawn Bart's body falls to the floor, only to reawaken the following dusk. He and his buddy decide that he is a revenant: an articulate zombie that needs to drink blood to arrest the decomposition of his body.Written by
The poem that is attributed to "Anonymous Tombstone" at the beginning of the movie is actually the first stanza of a poem entitled "There Is No Death" by J.L. McCreery. See more »
When the Vigilante Gunslingers bust the corrupt cops in the warehouse, there are some close-up shots of their faces, wearing sunglasses. Through the glasses, it is visible that both actors aren't wearing the zombie contact lenses at that moment. See more »

A new cut of the film is being completed in 2011 for international distribution and domestic release in September or November of 2011. Several scenes were consolidated and additional scenes and footage was added or restored. Also music was added and changed in the new cut. The old, (2009) cut is now considered the "Festival Version," and should properly be considered the "alternate" version, the "Official version" will be released theatrically in 2011. See more »
Killed in Iraq, a former soldier returns to his hometown alive but desperately needing blood to survive, and when his buddy decides to have him kill vagrants around town to do so, they find themselves in increasingly desperate situations to try to survive.
This turned out to be quite an impressive if mildly flawed effort with a lot to like about it. One of the film's strongest points is the delicate area of how it deals with the guy's condition, bestowing traits of vampires and zombies onto him yet never stating whether he is one or the other and contains traits that cancel out whether he is one or another. It's a great strategy that pays off quite well as this creates such an endearing creature that the resultant scenes of them hunting people down are a lot funnier than expected and generate some really good, genuine laughs from their bumbling and stumbling around, which is nice to see. That said, it's far too long for it's own good, coming in a good twenty-minutes over it's allotted time for such a goofy, non-horror-specific premise since it adapts an action-movie feeling more than once instead of horror during the middle, and it's quite distracting overall. Otherwise, this is quite enjoyable.
Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Full Nudity, a sex scene and drug use.
