Storyline

Mandao (Man-Day-Oh) of the Dead is about an unambitious guy named Jay Mandao who lives frugally off his late father's cereal royalties. He wants nothing more than to live in solitude, but is duped into taking in his adult nephew-in-law, Jackson. As Halloween approaches, Jay begins having odd dreams, and comes to find that he has the ability of astral projection. Jay and Jackson are approached by a ghost who has a small window of opportunity to reverse his death at the hands of Jackson's murderous ex-girlfriend. Written by Gina Gomez and Scott Dunn

Goofs

Jackson (Sean McBride) had cut this hair shortly before the re-shoots. The difference in hair length can be barely scene in the original wide-shots and re-shot close-ups for two scenes: the breakfast scene immediately after Jay (Scott Dunn) travels to Maeve's home for the first time and the confrontation between Jay and Jackson after they use astral travel to discover Maeve is the murderer.

One more low budget crap in the low budget crap universe. This is a movie that some bunch of friends took the camera and full around in the backyard than after that start showing that crap to other friends. According to rating number, at least half of them who votes more than 3.
