I should warn you, reader, that this is not exactly a B movie. Rather, more like C, or D, if those classifications exist.
The movie has to do with a hill somewhere in the southeastern US, near a college, apparently, that was once a ritual site for ancient Toltec Native American priests. An old Indian acquires the property for the purpose of guarding the local residents in sealing off the dark power that lurks beneath the ground. However, his death leads to the breaking of the protective seals placed around the hill. A group of college girls decide to turn the late Native's residence into a sorority house, but some guys decide it should be a fraternity as well. The ancient priests rise and set out to create havoc.
And it would have been pretty good, too, if the inane Director had been more consistent in his approach as to how the undead Priests should behave and look.
The bottom line is, whoever made this movie sucks!
I can picture their film/video instructor seeing this and shaking his head going, "I have failed!" and probably shooting himself in the head. The word 'campy' is too generous here. You will never, ever, be scared of these zombies, or believe for one second that they are Toltec Priests. They look nothing like the part, and what's worse, they never for one second act the part.Read more ›
At the begining of the show Lash saves a young boy from some dogs chasing him and doesn't even say a word to him when he goes over to help him up. Your expecting him to say, how are you or are you hurt but the scene just falls flat and moves to the next one. By the time the monsters arrive you may get more chuckles watching your kids in a home movie. The fear factor is a minus 10 if you can bear to keep watching the bad acting. It appears that the director just gather up everyone in this small town and put them in the show. I couldn't even give this movie one star but would give it a few negative stars if it were possible. If you buy this you might as well put a match to your money and throw it out the window. It would be more entertaining than realizing you had just wasted an hour and half of your life that you will never get back. It may even reduce your life span!!!

Well acted and cleverly written. Read more
If you're into following the acting careers of never was-s, then follow that of Lash La Rue. His only claim to fame is the whip. Read morePublished on November 16, 2010 by xylophone_enthusiast
Decided to buy this at a bargain bin price. Obviously low budget with very cheesy makeup for the "zombies". Read morePublished on February 5, 2010 by kb critic
