    Anyone remember this 80's zombie flick from Brett "Mr. Virtuosity" Leonard? Is it worth checking out? Was there ever an unrated version, cause I've only seen the R-rated one in video stores. The VHS box with the eyes that light up was a cool gimmick.

    I have a PAL DVD video release that is uncut on the MIDNITE MOVIES label. I think it was then released under a different label. Both are ... to the best of my knowledge ... out of print.

    The one I have looks OK but it was a very early DVD release so the quality is not the greatest though it definately looks better than a VHS copy.

    Isn't AB releasing this in North America. I never got around to renting it growing up. Is it gory or somehow entertaining?

    The Midnight Movies PAL DVD is out of print. There is also a different PAL DVD issued by Dragon that is still in print.

    I rented this about a year ago on VHS. It was fun for what it was, but it definitely wasn't the best zombie movie around. The makeup was pretty lackluster, from what I remember and the storyline wasn't too hot either. Too bad the light up eyes on the box didn't work- I guess it was a pretty old VHS. :(

    I have it, the eyes don't work, and save for a grim, dark atmosphere - the movie is pretty bad.
     
  7. I watched this a couple of times around 10 or 15 years ago. I remember thinking that it was a pretty decent low budget flick at the time, but not really all that special. Might have to give it another watch again someday.
