Roger Mortis and Doug Bigelow are cops that are chasing crooks that are dead serious about crime. Or should I say they are chasing dead crooks perpetrating serious crimes? Seems some nutcase has learned how to bring back the dead and is sending them on crime sprees. Now these indestructable goons are in the way of officers Mortis and Bigelow. To even things up, when Mortis is killed (in the line of duty, of course) he gets a jump start from the Resurrection machine and takes the fight to the zombie bad guys.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"On the screen, it seems to be like a walking corpse itself: jerking around malevolently, with putrefying limbs, a fixed, grisly smile on its face and absolutely no spontaneity."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times
"A disastrous attempt at blending comedy and horror."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Williams and Piscopo seem to be on autopilot when delivering their lines, not relating to one another, not picking up each other`s timing."
‑ Johanna Steinmetz, Chicago Tribune
"A real stinker in 1988, and it hasn't improved with age."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"[A] sci-fi, low-tech comedy horror show."
‑ Walter Goodman, New York Times
"Despite the overwhelming demand for Treat Williams/Joe Piscopo team-ups, this effort remains surprisingly hard to find."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
