We now flash forward 20 years to the present. It is now a woman's prison complete with a sadistic lesbian guard (Andrea Langi), shower scene, horny doctor and the new tough girl, Solitaire. Solitaire ends up in solitaire where she touches a carving in the floor made by Todd. She has visions of the ghastly images of his crimes including the torture and killing of a pregnant woman. Misty Mundae (credited as Erin Brown) plays Crystal, the prison girlfriend of Mondo, Solitaire's nemesis.
When blood is spilled on the ground where Todd is buried...all zombie hell breaks loose.
occasional f-bomb, minor sex, lesbian themes, full frontal nudity (only when tasteful and necessary for the plot), girls with tramp stamps, a baby from "It's Alive" (they wanted to make sure everything was covered) excessive blood and gore. Grindhouse cult classic. Deleted scenes include tasteful extended shower scenes. Not for everyone. A Misty Mundae prison girl zombie film, a must for discriminating collectors.

It is borderline supercheez and covers many genre movies just thrown into a blender and yeah, you have this movie...
Part Hong Kong action/martial arts - right down to the talc flying when they land a punch. Part zombie flick, Part women in prison flick... with a dash of Re-animator; especially "Beyond Re-animator".
If you enjoy exploitation action flicks, this film should suit you. It doesn't cover any really new territory, just gives you a hyper reality women in prison movie.
If ever there was a movie that I was going to enjoy it was this one. When this was getting ready to be released I saw an ad for it in an issue of Fangoria. Seeing Tony Todd was in it I had to have it. So when it was released I had to pick it up. So I took it over to my brother’s after picking up a homie and we three sat back and enjoyed. What we got was a great bad movie full of women, zombies, voodoo and violence, everything we could ask for in a B movie.
A man is set to be executed at a prison for his vicious killings. This man dabbled in voodoo and was a serial killer. But when things go down something goes wrong, the man is executed of course but his blood infects the prisoners and a zombie horde is born. Years later the prison is now a women’s prison and a new inmate is a little more than see seems. It doesn’t take long before the prisons secrets and sins resurface.
This movie is hilarious from the start with the quality of some of the acting, straight laughable. I won’t point any out because you have to see for yourself. Of course Todd is excellent and his character is a really interesting one. Then of course we have the plot which is just too sweet, a women’s prison exploitation flick with zombies and voodoo, I love it. Of course the nudity is there for those wondering, yes you get that as well.
The unrated Blu-Ray comes with a commentary featuring the cast and crew as well as behind the scenes featurettes and a music video among other things. This is a fun flick that is either really bad or good because of it depending on your taste. We loved it and were laughing the whole time. I say check it out if you get the chance especially if you like these types of flicks.

I only watched a few minutes of this film and turned it off, as I found it unwatchable and not entertaining.Published on December 5, 2013 by Manny Agah
Tony Todd can not recreate the popularity he received from Candy Man. This movie cheapens his artistic ability. Do not purchase.Published on July 15, 2013 by Carolyn A. Jackson

New from Media Blasters on BD and a decent (neo-'grindhouse'style) film. It's lmpressingly low budget, below the belt entertainment that should satisfy anyone who insists on purity... Read morePublished on February 6, 2009 by A Customer
