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.

Michael Atkinson
Village Voice

The blood is raspberry syrup, the gags gag, and the film virtually falls over itself informing us how lame it is.

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.

Matthew Leutwylers horror movie about six young people trapped in a creepy small town goes for parody and fails.

I laughed, I marveled at Gina Philips and Ever Carradine, and did I mention that I laughed?

A parsing of better splatter flicks; like a Cliff's Note, it's good for cheating but bad for a screenplay.

It's hard not to like a movie in which the leader of the zombies uses a decapitated head as a hand puppet.

Dread Central

If you're in the mood for zombie splatter fest filled with cool rockabilly tunes, Dead & Breakfast is where you need to end up.

Not necessarily "The U.S. answer to Shaun Of The Dead", but a fun flick with lots of gore.
Jacob Palacio
To me...this film is just one big joke. If it weren't a musical, (yeah, I said musical) I would probably give it a chhance, despite the non-funny humor.… More

Dull and very cheap. God only know why sum of these actors got into this film.

Only a little bit funny, it's painfull to watch the whole film with all the nasty actors/characters and bad scripting. It's a bad copycat of Shaun of… More

This movie was kind of amusing. I think the best part was that country minstrel-type guy who tunred into a rapper after he died. This movie really ran with the… More

I only watched the first half. I love the tagline, 'It's like a bad horror movie... only worse' and it's basically true. It's fun and… More
