Holy crap this was bad.
This is a great film that slowly unveils. Made in 1980, you could argue it feels relevant today. A preview to a time when we demand our entertainment be believable and oh so dramatic. Plus, ya know, savini.
good ideas but painfully slow.
Watch youtube instead.
Another rare pearl to clutch as a genre fan, here on this great site. An average, slow-paced, rambling story - just like a small movie set. Granted there's very little payoff if you've never heard of any of the cast or this movie's longtime MIA status. But discovering uncovered titles from filmfolk you admire is unspeakably glorious. And for having me look up imdb cast member credits like 'Red Turtleneck Sweater Zombie Grabbing at Peter's Legs'and 'Screwdriver Zombie' (Debra Gordon and Romero collaborator John Harrisson), this gets extra Shudder praise for bringing this to us.
