Quotes

[repeated line, chanted by all the zombies]
Abi's Victims: Do you know what happens when you're dead and rotting? Your flesh turns putrid and your clothes start spotting. Your belly bloats up, your guts turn to chum, your eyeballs turn purple like overripe plums. Your skin turns black with a putrefaction gleam, pus drips from your pores like whipping cream. Yes, it's no fun being rotting and dead. It's no fun at all; enough has been said.

Horror film? haha
4 May 2002 | by KatatoniaSee all my reviews

This has to be one of the worst "horror" films i have ever seen...and i've seen hundreds! I could name tons of "B-Horror Films" that are more professional and entertaining than this piece of garbage. First off, the plot is so stupid it's not even funny. Secondly, the acting is pathetic even for a super-low-budget movie. Thirdly, the "Monsters" in the film couldn't even scare a pre-schooler! I'd be more entertained sitting in silence than watching this again. Oh yeah, the film clocks in at 72 minutes in length...and that's 71 minutes too long!
