This movie was produced by Sam Raimi, whom I usually love, and released in 1988. It was shot on 8mm film and has a grainy quality that makes it seem more iinteresting than it actually is. It is gory and violent and the effects are good. I really should have loved this film. Sam Raimi and the living dead are a great combination. I felt, however, this movie was a big disappointment. It just lacked qualities that would make me care. I think it was the characters. In order for me to care if people live or die, I have to believe they are real and find them at least a little interesting. This moving didn't make me do that. I guess blood and guts and zombie effects aren't enough sometimes. I fell asleep. I had a good nap, however. I know some zombie lovers adore this film and I certainly don't hate it. I just found it sleepy.
