Storyline

Samuel Peters once an ordinary man, dabbles within the laws of voodoo to bring his wife back from the grave, he soon encounters the God of malevolence 'Kalfu', where he makes a pact with him to destroy the underworld and bring chaos to earth; in return he will become 'The Zombie King' and walk the earth for eternity with his departed wife. Seven days before the rise of the Dark Moon, Samuel Peters (The Zombie King) calls upon Kalfu to raise seven of the recently departed, where their souls must be held on earth for seven days.

Seeking sanctuary in a local church, they discover a bizarre disturbed ... Written by Rebecca-Clare Evans

Munch away
3 August 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I guess this tries to be like Shaun of the Dead a little bit. Unfortunately it never really achieves those heights. Even more unfortunate is seeing Edward Furlong and what he has become (literally and metaphorically, in his career and in this movie). Once seen as something that could be a great actor, he can't even deliver (or maybe he doesn't bother to) in a movie like this.

The character of munch might be the most fun one here, but overall there is a feeling of dread. There are subplots and some funny characters that work occasionally, but it doesn't add up. So while some jokes are funny others miss their mark completely, making this an odd experience. Not always in a good sense. You may try it, if you are into B-movies, but there is no guarantee you'll find it amusing
