named Josh Cameron (Wings Hauser) takes
his younger brother Mike (Lee Montgomery)
out of the city and into the country to
get away from his personal problems.
They are chased off the road by a bunch
of rednecks and they hike it to a small
southern town in order to call a tow
truck but first they hang out at a bar
but they aren't felt welcomed by the
locals there as they run into the
rednecks that drove them off the road but
are protected by the local Sherrif named
Will Stewart (Bo Hopkins) as Mike
encountered a corpse near a railroad but
instead they all find a homeless person
sleeping there as the corpse was removed.
They stay the night at a bed and
breakfast. While they are there Mike is
pulled under his bed and Josh tries to
look for him as he didn't witness what
has happened to him and then discovers a
dead little girl at an elementary school
that is closed and that people are
getting sick and being plagued by a
chemical reaction there and are turning
into zombies and the town ends up being
zombie flick setting place in good ole
It does look mysterious and interesting
if if the plot itself is a bit stale.
Well the story does seem mysterious at
first but like any zombie flick it is
just the same ole thing except these
zombie's look a little creepier.
The acting is
quite good as we have a terrific
performance by b-film actor Wings
Hauser as he really knows his craft
as an actor. He is dynamic with his
actions and choreography during fighting
scenes too as well as his emotions
towards his dead brother which looked
very sad making you feel the same way if
a family member of yours were just killed
and you encountered it.
We can't forget about Bo Hopkins
as a tough sherrif as he is usually
typecast with these roles cause he's very
good at portraying them.
Jody Medford is just as
brilliant as the rest with her energetic
performance and frightened emotions too
There's a nice supporting role by the
late Marc Clement as he makes a
believeable everyday troublemaking
redneck and is very intimidating at
wanting to pick a fight. Bless his soul.
We get a nice special appearance by Cary
Guffy (Yes the little boy from Spielberg's
classic Close Encounters of the
Third Kind) and it's nice to see
him have lines.
There are ghoulish
John 'Bud' Cardos knows
what he's doing with this film
He shows interesting scenery and you just
wonder why Lee
Montgomery's character is being
pulled under the bed in his guest room
which helps the film going.
He also made sure that Hauser and
Medford's scene's together
looked good showing terrific chemistry
towards one another.
There's a classic scene when a zombie
creeps up behind Jody Medford's
character and Hopkins shoots the
zombie as it was perfect timing with the
Another good one is when the zombie's
attack the car where Medford's
character is hiding in.
We have some
wonderful classical music by Richard
Band with his sharp violin playing
and other wonderful musical instruments
and none of it was played by a
