Product Overview

The story focuses around a theater troupe, led by Alan (Alan Ormsby) a mean-spirited director, who travels by boat to a small island for buried criminals. Using a grimoire, Alan begins a seance to raise the dead after digging up the body of a man named Orville Dunworth. Afterwards Alan goes to extremes to degrade the actors, using the corpse of Orville for his own sick jokes. The dead return and force the troupe to take refuge in the old house. They must decide whether it's best to stay put until day, provided the old house holds up against the undead onslaught, try to all flee through the pitch black cemetery and forest to the boat, or have one person brave the obstacle in hopes that they can bring back help in time.

ReviewSource The Video Graveyard
Review Star Alan Ormsby must have had a big effect on me because although I first saw this when I was probably nine or ten, I can still recall clearly what this loudmouth bearded man looked like. Unfortunately for me, I forgot about all of the zombies...I don't know how I could have forgotten about the whole zombie sequence in this movie as the resurrection scene brought to mind Return Of The Living Dead, Zombie, and Michael Jackson's Thriller video and is one of the better scenes of its kind that I can recall...this was a great low budget zombie flick that really got going in the last third with an extended zombie attack that was noticeably loud in it's execution with the zombies banging on the windows and proving to be very unsettling. The cast all did a great job but the real star here was Ormsby in an obnoxiously over-the-top performance that made me think of what Jim Carrey would be like in a 70's zombie movie. Although the film seemed to have an excessive amount of dialog at the beginning, this was all necessary for the payoff at the end. My only complaint was the poor lighting but it retrospect, I think this may have added to the feel of the film.
