This movie is on DVD? Great! I've been trying to find this movie for years. I saw it once late at night when I was a kid (before cable) and it creeped me out.

Thanks for the reviews folks!  I'm a Zombie movie fanatic and will make this DVD a part of my 2003 Halloween movie marathon.  Can't wait!  The clip seems to be in widescreen...hope the DVD version is.

When I was a kid, my dad and I saw this at the theater when it first came out.  I thought it was comical and spooky.  I remember walking out of the theater late at night with chill bumps all over my arms.  It's good to know that good horror flicks are still around for future generations to enjoy.

Waitasec--DOES Anya get munched? Every time I watch that scene, it look like the zombies merely carry her away. Maybe they accepted her apology after all.

The character I feel sorry for the most was the cemetary care taker who was bound and gagged to a tree at the edje of the graveyard. When the zombie were reanimated and started for the house where the "children" were. Every zombie walked past his tree except for the last damn one who looked back and saw him.   Munch.

I found this masterpiece at meijer in dvd format along with the undertaker and his pals for a mere $3.33!  What a deal!  Does anyone else look at this movie and think 'Charles Manson meets Scooby-Doo and the gang'?

This is my most unfavorite movie.  I've watched it 3 times in my life.  I was drunk 2 of those times.  This movie just p**ses me off.  I've tried giving it away to friends and they give it back each time.  It's like a curse.  I can't understand how anyone enjoys it.

   A curious entry in the Zombie canon that treads a very fine line between horror and comedy.  File it somewhere between "Return of The Living Dead" and "Chopper Chicks In Zombietown".  Alan must be one of the most bravely repellent characters ever to grace the screen. Pretentious beyond all belief!  The make-up is highly effective and the walking dead themselves are frighteningly savage.  Horrendous fashions all around--  which usually goes without saying in 70's era cinema-- but some of these get-ups are blindingly bad.  It's very favorable overall.  Plus, it boasts one of my all-time favorite lines:  "The dead are losers!"

Saw this on UHF while camping in Maine as a kid, 1977ish, maybe '78.  We were just camping out of a van and the campground had electricity at each site.  I was 7ish.  At one point some older kids walked by and said "A TV, that's roughing it."  The TV Channel screwed up the reels and we ended up watching it out of order so it didn't make much sense story wise but it was creepy and fascinating none the less.  I haven't seen it since then but it remains one of the scariest things I've ever seen.

You can't convince someone this is a great movie if they're going to say it sucks. Let 'em say it. This is a great movie, however. Don't pay so much attention to the wardrobe, (take my word for it - for the time, these guys are hip), but pay attention to the great camera moves, especially outside, where the smooth movements must have been pretty hard to get. The house is great! Kinda looks like mine up here in the mountains. And let yourself get into the performances, which this group of unknowns do with incredible believability. Everyone says they hate Val. Let 'em! That means she played her role with great conviction! You hate Alan, too! Anyone can play a saint. Hateful people are the ones you remember. Funny how people b***h about running out of air in a coffin, but dead coming to life is a total natural. Watch it again.

Valerie Mamches was 31 when this was filmed. Even as a kid, I never thought of 31 as "middle-aged."

I actually did not care for this film too much. I found the acting to be pretty bad, but that is something I've come to expect, so that I'm not really too broken up about. The music really annoyed me, but that, too, was an aspect of the film that was excusable. It was the slowness that got to me. It just took so long for any action to happen! Maybe it is because I'm impatient, but had the acting been a little less laughable, I suppose I could have dealt with it's slow pace.

People may be laughing at me now, but someday us nerdy, cross-dressing, undead weirdos will rule the world!
