In the sleepy small town of Dudley, Ohio, a terrifying future awaits. Laura Childs is under attack by the undead, and not even those closest to her can save her from the evil forces at hand.

Customer Reviews

This is perhaps the worst movie i've ever seen.
Romaro Davis
Honestly, it's not a bad little film - just not something for zombie fans to seek.

Not the risen dead or undead, nor the infected, nor even voodoo powered zombies.

This is NOT a zombie film by any means.

I purchased it this with the impression I'd be seeing the story of a girl whose town would be invaded by flesh-eating corpses and along with her family battle a desperate wage to survive. Along with said family, conflicts would arise and the battle for humanity becomes stronger than the battle to survive. And so on.

Instead, what I got was a film about a girl who decided to give her baby up for adoption and after he had been bounced from house to house, 3 years later the baby accidentally kills himself (a bit of a spoiler but this is learned early on and is crucial to the plot) and now the soul of the baby - ready for this? - is possessing people to kill his natural born mother for giving him up.

Any zombies in this film? No. Any gore? Nope, not really. Is it a good film? ...Yes, actually it is. BUT it's NOT a zombie film.

The acting in the film was very decent I must say and the storyline intriguing though the prospect of having hordes of flesh-eating ghouls was not only forwarded by the eye catching cover art, but the back of the box as well for describing the film as "A frightening zombie thriller". While the people "possessed" by the infant are zombie-like, they are certainly not zombies and no more than one person at a time becomes a murderous fiend.

Actually had this film had a completely different title, with a different box, I would have enjoyed it immensely. But because it's marketed as a zombie film, it can't be ignored that it is NOT a zombie film but something more along the lines of "Fallen".

Honestly, it's not a bad little film - just not something for zombie fans to seek. Horror fans in general will like it but don't expect a full blown zombie film because again - that's not what you're going to get.

My expectations for this movie were pretty low, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I don't particularly like schlock horror movies; but this was filmed in my hometown. Although I liked the Crook Brothers' other horror movie, I enjoyed this one much more. The acting was better, and I thought it was overall more seamless. How many low budget horror movies have (quasi) logical plots and good acting? True, it should be classified as a slasher and not zombie movie; but if you're really sensitive about that, get over yourself; it was bought it in a zombie package. Given the budget and genre, this was an impressive little movie. Unfortunately, the working title,'Tantrum', didn't stick. 'Tantrum' as a title, a better synopsis, and different classification would do better to further the surprising little experience that was this movie.

I always try to keep an open mind when watching a movie. I also have this useless talent of unearthing at least one positive aspect of a movie, even if the movie doesn't deserve it. Well I have to say that "Rise of the Dead" was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I tried so desperately to find something good about it, but to no avail. The only reason I didn't turn it off after twenty minutes is a friend of mine let me borrow the movie and told me I had to watch it. This movie clocks in at 72 minutes that felt like 72 hours.

Now there is a genre of movies/films that can be classified "so bad they are good". Movies that fit this paradigm are some of my favorites. Sadly, this movie doesn't fit this mold. The movie looks like it was made on a fifteen dollar budget. The acting (if one could claim that the performing arts even transpired in this schlock) was beyond hideous.

The plot was also really stupid. An adopted toddler who has died wants to take his revenge out on his birth mother. It is never really explained why his hate is directed towards his birth mother, the tike was only like three when he died. So the spirit of the toddler possesses people who are in proximity to its birth mother, in order to kill her. This process is executed so poorly. As for the ending.........you have got to be kidding me.

Another issue with this movie is the title, "Rise of the Dead". With a name like this, a person is led to believe that this is a move about zombies, or even vampires. The cover of the DVD shows this gruesome and decomposing head. Sound like the undead to me. Well that would be a big fat NO. The people who become possessed have a zombie-esque feel to them, but this is more of a ghost story.

WARNING: FALSE ADVERTISING. THIS IS NOT A ZOMBIE MOVIE! Period.

From the front cover art (a head emerging from the ground tangled in what look like roots; not in the movie!), to the back cover art (which looks like a legion of the shambling undead; also not in the movie!) and the description (claiming the movie is a "frightening zombie thriller" and that the main character is "under attack by the undead"; the first is simply false and the second only applies if you consider ghostly possession of living human the same as "the undead"), the packaging is misleading in the extreme.

If you think you're getting a zombie movie, you're dead wrong (pardon the pun). This movie has nothing to do with zombies, at all. Not the risen dead or undead, nor the infected, nor even voodoo powered zombies.

This is a possession/slasher flick. Period. No zombies.

I can hardly unbiasedly review this because of my disappointment over it not being a zombie movie when all indications from the packaging say it is. But, I'll try:

I guess I'll just say that the movie was pretty boring. I didn't find many of the "scares" very scary (and I use the term very loosely, since they're all telegraphed pretty far in advance through stupid camera tricks, obvious rising musical cues or simply showing in the background that something is coming).

The basic plot is that people around a certain chick start behaving strangely and trying to attack her. If you don't guess the "twist" that's coming by about 10-15 minutes in, you're not paying attention (for which, honestly, I can't blame you)... The other 60-some odd minutes are just tedious bloodletting waiting for the director to catch up and reveal the twist you realized not-too-far in to the movie.
