On the night of the big high-school prom, the dead rise to eat the living, and the only people who can stop them are the losers who couldn't get dates to the dance.

By Dave. K VINE VOICE on October 21, 2008
Format: DVD
Dance of the Dead was released by Ghost House Underground, which is sort of their take on the 8 Films to Die For and I suppose the Dimension Extreme label as well. From what I have heard Dance of the Dead was hand picked by Sam Raimi for Ghost House Underground and bottom line is this; you'll either really enjoy Dance of the Dead or hate the movie, while most reviews have been more positive this is the type of movie I can see why many loved it and some hated it. I for one really enjoyed Dance of the Dead and it was exactly what I expected.

Dance of the Dead however is as flawed as it is entertaining and quite honestly not everything works here. There are moments where it's too over the top and seems too forced, but other times certain aspects work and it's highly enjoyable. Despite any flaws in my opinion Dance of the Dead has far more good going for than against it. Think of this movie as a John Hughes movie meets Night of the Living Dead or more like The Return of the Living Dead since Dance of the Dead has a lot more of Return of the Living Dead rather than Night of the Living Dead. Dance of the Dead starts off as more of a teen comedy and like I said something in the style of John Hughes, but than the horror kicks in and it becomes something like a John Hughes movie that meets a zombie flick.

The screenplay written by Joe Ballarini and overall it was quite well done, but not everything he does works well. As stated there are moments that are too over the top and moments that seem a bit forced as if Joe Ballarini was trying a bit too hard. But once the middle sections come his script while already good gets better. The characters aren't the best developed characters we've ever come across, but most of them are likeable.

That title may go a bit far, but this one is a hoot. While the tongue is never even slightly out of cheek, and once quite literally, the requisite gore and shock value just add to the fun.
I recommend this movie highly to newcomers and aficionados of the genre.
Two green, twitching, decaying thumbs up!

Prom was never like this!!

1) ACTING: I found the acting to be very well done. While the characters were the usual high school stereotypes that we have all come to know, each actor took their role and made everything that could be done out of it, without going over the top and becoming a caricature. And, luckily, none of the teen actors look like they are in their 30's.

2) PRODUCTION: After viewing a number of less than stellar zombie movies, I am happy to state that the people involved in the production of this movie knew what they were doing and show a love for genre. No soundtrack or lighting issues. A couple of very minor continuity goofs appear, but most likely will not be an issue to the general viewer. The zombie make up is really good, with some of the lesser made up zombies relegated to the dark and to the background. The blood and gore is plentiful and usually surrounded by humor.

3) ZOMBIES: The zombies in Dance of the Dead are a mixture of many different kinds that we have seen in various movies and a few new ones. We have the slow Romero shamblers, the fast moving Snyder runners, and ones that can still drive cars!

4) THE CAUSE: nuclear power plant emissions.

5) NUDITY: None.

FINAL: What a wonderful, fun movie! I was disappointed that this did not go to theaters nationwide, as I think, as Shaun of the Dead has proven, "zomedies" do work, when done correctly. Think of this movie as a collaboration between the zombie master, George Romero, and the teen movie master, John Hughes. I can't wait to see what comes next from the creators of this movie. This is one Dance everyone should attend!

A school from hell (filled with teachers who belong in prison), houses the perfect buffet for a pack of zombies fresh from their graves. No surprise, the students are categorized by type (most look too old to still be in high school). Far too much time is wasted on the imbalance between these factions. Things only pick up once the Sci-Fi Club heads for the local graveyard and find an empty coffin. From that point on, this movie improves immensely. A veritable zombie army leaves their graves by leaps and bounds.............literally! Those not at the prom rush to join forces with other survivors. Unfortunately, they mistakenly take refuge in a funeral home. These chosen few take it upon themselves to vanquish the horde and save those not eaten.

There's humor aplenty and sometimes it works. Most of the characters are borderline obnoxious, some are just bland. The teachers are all played with far too much exaggeration. It makes it seem as if they are in a loony bin rather than a high school. But the zombie action is exceptional. There is that to look forward to. This one definitely goes into my collection of zombie flicks.

I am elated to find that this movie is available for purchase. On a whim, we went to see it at the Atlanta Film Festival and being a zombie movie aficionado I was ready for this to not thrill me. How good could the effects be for an indie film, right?

I was wrong. So very, very wrong. This was by far one of the best zombie movies I've ever seen, you get what you are expecting and/or hoping for and then a whole lot more. I was lost for words when the zombies exploded from their graves. The humorous moments our cast finds themselves in, the biting one liners- it was funny, it was gross, it was grossly funny. I recommend this to anyone as the perfect date movie (I watched parts of it from behind my sweater so you know it has to be good!)
