I had seen this on the rental shelf many times and I never got around to checking this film out. I figured it would be your typical zombie flick, and I never felt like I needed to see it. Well, I recently checked this film out and I loved it. It mixes the horror with the humor so well. The scenes with the janitor were absolutely hilarious. This movie also has some really nice gore scenes, especially the scenes with the axe murderer. I also loved how he came back to life and just hacked his way through the floorboards. By the end of the movie we get a really cool zombie-fest, and I of course am a zombie fan so I found this a very entertaining film. Also in this film we see where Dead Alive got the idea of using a lawnmower in order to get rid of some zombies. Overall, check this flick out. It makes a great rental, and a great late night flick. Now this movie needs to come out on DVD. I give it a 7 out of 10.
