I used to get so much grief for liking this movie when I was in college…either because nobody had ever heard of it before or just because they thought it was ridiculous. This is a great one for zombie fans that didn’t find enough on the 100 best horror movies list, although the gore is a bit minimal by today’s standards. Heck, for the title alone it’s worth watching!
The acting is bad. What makes it worse is that there are actors playing actors in this movie, so a bit of double jeopardy transpires. In the movie, a group of actors are playing a satanic cult that attempts to raise the dead – and it works!
Not one of the 100 best horror movies list to be sure, but this movie will grow on you (once you tune out the terrible music). The black humor throughout makes for an enjoyable time as well. And you will have the added benefit of being ridiculed by your friends who have never heard of the movie before! You won’t have to put up with this long though, as I hear that director Bob Clark is working on a remake as we speak, and this should release in 2006. (Update – this is still in the works…)
