While on the way to a friend's wedding, six youngsters carpooling in an RV end up deciding to stop the night at a small town bed-and-breakfast. This bothered me right off the bat. They're in an RV, why stop and rent rooms? Nonetheless, they stop to sleep for the night in Lovelock. By morning, the two locals working the property are dead, and the six renters find themselves at the top of the suspect list and unable to leave to attend their friend's wedding. A mystery regarding the inn's owner and his son's untimely death gradually unravels. An evil spirit inhabiting a box within the inn has been unleashed and now resides in the body of Johnny (Oz Perkins), one of the band of six.
The body count mounts as Johnny converts more and more souls to his cause of death, destruction, and mayhem, leaving the remaining five friends and a few other of Lovelock's stragglers fighting for their lives. They batten down the hatches and pick off as many possessed as they can from the confines of the inn, a la "Night of the Living Dead," making weapons out of whatever they can get their hands on. In the meantime an all-knowing drifter (Brent David Fraser), the sheriff (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Melody (Gina Philips) are seeking to get to the heart of the matter by visiting Lovelock's cemetery.Read more ›
This film wants to be cool. It was designed to (hopefully) be a cult classic. It wants you to revel in its self-aware kookiness. But that's just the problem. Taking its cues from so many better movies, this is a self-indulgent and unoriginal mess. The cast and filmmakers seem to be having a good time--you know this was a party set. It seems as if they feel that they are doing us a great service by letting us in on the joke. Well, I've heard the joke--so don't do me any favors.
I'm not saying that there aren't some amusing moments--how can you fail with redneck zombies? And musical numbers are always fun. And the TV-ready cast will be familiar to many, even if you can't always place from where.
The movie imagines that it's "Evil Dead 2," but it lacks real cleverness. It works slightly better as a comedy than anything else, but it's hard for me to imagine anyone being captivated by this. KGHarris, 10/06.
I first read about Dead and Breakfast from Aint-It-Cool-News. I read that it was suppose to be some sort of zombie comedy and America's answer to the excellent British romzomcom (romantic, zombie, comedy) Shaun of the Dead. Well, that was all I needed to hear. I bought the dvd once it was out for sale and I have to say that it got the comedy part right and somewhat the zombie part. The zombie's are more like spirit-possessed people. I saw no gutmunching and limbs being ripped off unless it was the zombies themselves being hacked and chopped to pieces. Dead and Breakfast didn't skimp on the gore and splatter gags. And for a low-budget film most of the gags and gore-effects were pretty well done. But outside of the gore and blood there really wasn't anything scary about the movie to help balance the over-the-top comedy side of things. When I say over-the-top I mean it. There's a whole sequence of zombies busting out into a country line dance number all the tune of a trio of a rap-country zombie band doing a set on-top of an RV. I must say that this movie is weirdly funny.
The acting is typical of most low-budget horror flicks. Though I'm surprised that the quality isn't abit higher with a few young actors who have done better work such as Gina Phillips, Jeremy Sisto, Erik Palladino and David Carradine. I think the actors couldn't decide whether they should act just funny enough and serious when it came to be serious or just be over-the-top.Read more ›

This one of the gems for those looking for a zombie flick.Published 11 months ago by Kathryn Stockton
Fantastic film for watching late-night with a bunch of friends. Preferable with a drink of some kind.
Plus there's David Carradine. Yep.
Absolutely love this movie. It is a great dark comedy with bits of ridiculous. Not to mention all the actors you've seen before in a humorous grade b horror.Published on October 4, 2013 by Christina
