Dead Kansas is a c-horror-comedy microbudget indie zombie video, so unless you're prepared for that kind of experience, you'll definitely be disappointed (or even pissed, as a couple reviewers apparently were). If you're up for not taking a video too seriously, and you enjoy indie weekend-shoot type videos with a sense of humor, don't spend your $2 on this, or your time, or you'll probably, as I noted, end up ticked off. But, if you're a 4:20'er, or an indie microbudget horror fan, and you're not looking for Citizen Kane or The Shining, you may find yourself having a bit of fun.

With that in mind, I've seen this a couple times. DK does have a few actors who have played minor roles in notable films (as one reviewer pointed out). In that regard, it does have a bit of a leg up on its fellow c-movies.

No, there are no scares, no chills, nothing spooky - it's not that kind of video. It's a movie you can laugh at, and laugh with. The hammy over-serious acting of Glen (the most consistently funniest part of the whole movie, imo). And, overall, it's not the worst video I've never seen. Close, but no, not the worst.

Long story short - microbudget c-horror comedy fans may find it a fun viewing. If you're looking for genuine scares or chills, or anything like a b-movie or Hollywood-esque quality, probably best to wait till this comes out on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Cool music, by the way.

Dead Kansas isn't the worst film I've ever seen, not by a long shot. It's nowhere near Plan 9 or Under the Volcano, and it's certainly not as bad as anything with Bo Derek in it. With a 64-minute runtime, it's mercifully brief, and if you like checking out quirky, low budget films, Dead Kansas does have a certain charm to it. I read that the film was originally made as a 5-part web miniseries that was shown on YouTube, then released as a DVD, and showed up as an Amazon Instant Video in early 2015. The miniseries heritage is evident in the film, which is shown in five acts.

It's another zombie film, where some kind of worldwide disease has caused most people to become zombies, called "Rottens" in the film. We never actually see the Rottens, but we see things through their eyes in black and white. Only once do we actually see a Rotten, but that's all I'll say about that (no spoilers from me). The storyline is simple enough: Glenn and his teenage daughter Emma are trying to survive on their farm. Glenn's wife had fallen victim of the disease and had to be put down. Life is hard enough with food and medical supplies becoming increasingly scarce, but to complicate things, a gang of thugs led by Jebediah is trying to take Emma to sell her to a wealthy man who wants a wife who can bear his offspring.

Some things to watch for:
* See if you can spot where the actress who plays Emma is replaced by another actress (hint: it's about 29 minutes into the movie). Apparently the first actress was preggers and it began to show too much. Actually, three different actresses played Emma, including a young Emma in a flashback scene.
* Kevin Beardsley plays two roles: Jebediah's animal-like brother Zeke, and Rusty, a doctor's assistant.

I kind of went into this expecting a typical zombie movie...bloody and scary. Lets say its everything but that. To my surprise, there actually wasn't any "horror" in it at all. It was more of an adventure/western film, with zombies going on in the backdrop. You have to use your imagination in some parts. However, I really enjoyed the story. The sets were cool, and the acting was better than most films with this budget. I really was happy to see Joe McQueen (aka: black Hulk) from Confesstions Of A SuperHero in this. Someone finally gave that guy a chance. Overall, if you go in with an open mind and a twelve pack, you will enjoy Dead Kansas.

The film is about some hick bad-guys who want to kidnap a farmer's daughter...during a zombie apocalypse. There are circus freaks too. Look out for cameos by horror veteran Irwin Keyes (House Of 1000 Corpses) and Ben Woolf (American Horror Story).

This is a moderately entertaining film. Its obvious the filmmakers had a low budget and some production problems. Heck, even the main actress is replaced by another actress mid-way through... but somehow they made it work. If you like fun, off-beat cult movies, this one is for you.

Please note: There are two DVD versions of DEAD KANSAS. The first, only contains Act 1 - which is 17 minutes. This DVD has the father and daughter in a cellar on the front cover. The second DVD (the complete version) has all five acts edited together - which is 64 minutes. This DVD has the girl in cage cover.

Aaron K. Carter’s post-zompocalypse film is probably one of the oddest experiences I have had watching indie/homegrown movies. The story focuses on a Father/daughter drama of survival post outbreak, like way post. Very little society is left and most of the “rottens” have rotted away. All that is left is bands of people fighting one another to carve out dominance over the Kansas terrain. Throw in that only daughter seems to be immune from the virus that is blamed by the whole of female society for its destruction, and you have an old school male dominated saga unfolding.

Overall “Dead Kansas” is gonna disappoint a lot of people who set out to watch the film. It is on the lower quality side of indie film making-not sure if they had a budget or not. Didn’t look like they did. The story is “been-there-done-that”, and the acting really should have been reigned in more on several of these characters. All that said, the oddity of nature that accompanies these characters, the off-tempo line deliveries, and the sound track somehow put off a Fred Olen Ray/Gil Bettman vibe. By the last scene I actually found myself into the surviving characters and excited that they left the story open for a sequel.
