A road trip rolls through a small town where the line between the dead and the living has become a bit problematic in this horror parody. A handful of twentysomethings are driving to Galveston, TX, in an RV to attend the wedding of a close friend. After a long day on the road, the travelers find themselves in a tiny town called Lovelock, where the only available accommodations are at a bed and breakfast run by the eccentric Mr. Wise (David Carradine). One of the kids, Johnny (Oz Perkins), notices that Mr. Wise is carefully looking after a small box; curious about its contents, Johnny opens it,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This strenuous zombie yukfest is no more sophisticated than its nail-on-head title -- making it a joke no smarter than the movies it riffs on."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"The blood is raspberry syrup, the gags gag, and the film virtually falls over itself informing us how lame it is."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Reminds me of the slightly retarded mutt in a room full of intelligent purebreds. Yes, it may 'sit' when it's told to 'roll over,' but it tries its best to please you."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"This little independent gorefest serves up creativity and campiness almost from beginning to end."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Despite some terrific touches, it's too relentlessly corny to provide many thrills."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Matthew Leutwylers horror movie about six young people trapped in a creepy small town goes for parody and fails."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"I laughed, I marveled at Gina Philips and Ever Carradine, and did I mention that I laughed?"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A parsing of better splatter flicks; like a Cliff's Note, it's good for cheating but bad for a screenplay."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"It takes more than a singing narrator and an unusual finale to set you apart from the dozens of other zombie flicks being released every week."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"This scrappy little gross-out horror comedy is extremely uneven."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's hard not to like a movie in which the leader of the zombies uses a decapitated head as a hand puppet."
‑ Russell Scott Smith, New York Post
"If you're in the mood for zombie splatter fest filled with cool rockabilly tunes, Dead & Breakfast is where you need to end up."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"...there's not a whole lot here worth recommending."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Dead and Breakfast has a lot of yuck, but only a few yuks."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"It's a bloody good time."
‑ Eric Campos, Film Threat
