Coming across as a happy-go-lucky ABC Afterschool Special with gore (by Craig Reardon), this good-natured zombie movie concerns a bullied teen named Archie (Scott Grimes from the Critters series) working for his creepy mortician uncle (John Astin). When the inevitable car accident kills Archie's tormentors and they rise from the grave as flesh-eating ghouls, the effect is not as horrific as it might be. Instead, Grimes' attempts at putting down the creatures brings to mind a kid trying to straighten his room before Mom gets home. But nobody said that all zombie movies had to be scary.
