Camp in, and of itself.

The colors and clothing is camp enough. But, the idea of the characters motivations, in  this B-movie --shot in a foney graveyard, are to go through the ordeal, so that they become famous, seems unintentionally tounge in cheek-- what irony! I do not like the characters, so it's justice to see them all get munched.

Though Alan and Val tried to see who was the smartest, none of their razzing made any sense. Matter afact, Alan kind of delivered some of the lines like he was Lloyd Christmas in "Dumb and Dumber". Anya had the coolest part and lines.

The camp in the movie, other than the zeitgiest, is brought out by the two effeminate actors, hired by Alan to scare the troupe. The especially the scene where they steal a corpses ring, only to get attacked -- "Oh, look at that ring" *flaps hand*.

The great thing about this movie, is that the campiness at the beginning leads to a good sequence of zombie awakenings and mayhem-- good balance. You forget about the fake tombstones and Alans Mr. Wizard robe.

'Alan: "Uh, how many merits does an Eagle Scout get for seducing a Brownie?"
Terry: "I don't know, you'll have to check that in your Boy Scout manual."

Given that Eagle Scouts are usually in high school and Brownies are usually around 8 years old, that's just WRONG!!

I was about 10 years old and saw this movie on tv while staying over my grandparents house.  I woke up with the most horribel nightmares later that night.  I cant belive I found this movie almost 30 years later!

The best thing about this movie is the title.  It has absolutley no other redeeming value to it.

This was the first Zombie movie I ever saw in the mid Seventies. It's kind of corny but it has a great ending. It's also dated by their outfits, but if they made a remake of it to look like the 70's ..they couldn't come close to the wardrobe back then.

Actually, I do have something, but not with Tom Savini directing, but with Director Bob Clark, who wanted to remake it in 2007, but before production plans could get underway, he was killed in an automobile accident. Whereupon, I presume it went into what is known as "developmental hell."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
