Editorial Reviews

Six friends on their way to a wedding in Galveston, TX stop for the night at a quaint bed and breakfast in the sleepy town of Lovelock. But after a night that ends with both the inn’s owner and his chef dead, the gang finds themselves under suspicion by the local sheriff. The mystery quickly unravels when the already bizarre residents of the town become possessed by an evil spirit and pin the friends down at the b&b. Armed with a rusty chainsaw, a can of gasoline and a half box of shotgun shells, they must barricade the house and fight for their lives.

After finding this film on sale at a local DVD store, and reading the cover which proclaims that "Dead and Breakfast" is the US answer to "Shaun of the Dead," I had to pick this up for myself. I hadn't heard anything else about this film at the time, but being a huge fan of "Shaun of the Dead," and cheesy horror flicks in general, I bought it on a whim. While the aforementioned statement might be slightly misguided, "Dead and Breakfast" is certainly worth a viewing or two.

While on the way to a friend's wedding, six youngsters carpooling in an RV end up deciding to stop the night at a small town bed-and-breakfast. This bothered me right off the bat. They're in an RV, why stop and rent rooms? Nonetheless, they stop to sleep for the night in Lovelock. By morning, the two locals working the property are dead, and the six renters find themselves at the top of the suspect list and unable to leave to attend their friend's wedding. A mystery regarding the inn's owner and his son's untimely death gradually unravels. An evil spirit inhabiting a box within the inn has been unleashed and now resides in the body of Johnny (Oz Perkins), one of the band of six.

The body count mounts as Johnny converts more and more souls to his cause of death, destruction, and mayhem, leaving the remaining five friends and a few other of Lovelock's stragglers fighting for their lives. They batten down the hatches and pick off as many possessed as they can from the confines of the inn, a la "Night of the Living Dead," making weapons out of whatever they can get their hands on. In the meantime an all-knowing drifter (Brent David Fraser), the sheriff (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), and Melody (Gina Philips) are seeking to get to the heart of the matter by visiting Lovelock's cemetery.

Like Mike said, very campy... I enjoyed the humor, laughs, and zombie gore... Mike's review was right-on, I just wanted to add a star for the Country Western factor...

What can you say about "Dead & Breakfast"? I picked this up at the store not knowing much about it other than it had a cute title, clever holographic packaging, a few decent reviews and a young, appealing cast. I can say that the charms, unfortunately, of the actual film are relatively limited. Pretty standard fare, really--I didn't necessarily dislike it--I just felt that it was so obvious in its intention.

This film wants to be cool. It was designed to (hopefully) be a cult classic. It wants you to revel in its self-aware kookiness. But that's just the problem. Taking its cues from so many better movies, this is a self-indulgent and unoriginal mess. The cast and filmmakers seem to be having a good time--you know this was a party set. It seems as if they feel that they are doing us a great service by letting us in on the joke. Well, I've heard the joke--so don't do me any favors.

I'm not saying that there aren't some amusing moments--how can you fail with redneck zombies? And musical numbers are always fun. And the TV-ready cast will be familiar to many, even if you can't always place from where.

The movie imagines that it's "Evil Dead 2," but it lacks real cleverness. It works slightly better as a comedy than anything else, but it's hard for me to imagine anyone being captivated by this. KGHarris, 10/06.

I was pleasantly surprised by the intelligent choreography and humor in this movie. Pretty unique choreography and filmed well. Not a cheezy 3rd rate movie. I can tell this was well thought out. And what is Kwai Chang Caine from Kung Fu the tv series doing on here? Awesome!

More campy than scary, Dead & Breakfast plays with the conventions we've all come to love and expect in a zombie movie, making a lighthearted (and blood soaked) comedy that even the most easily frightened of viewers should be able to watch without worry.

I just re-watched this. I was telling a friend about how it was a great bad movie. I looked it up and was surprised it was on here!
I forgot how bad the script is, how great the actors are. Some of them are amazing physically, some are great at playing the stereo types!

The songs are corny but so darn catchy that I will find myself humming "We're coming to kill ya".

Such a great "bad" movie!

Loads of laughs!

You can catch this movie occasionally on Netflix, but they only seem to have it for a very limited time. I figured I would purchase it. Just a silly, stupid, funny zombie type movie with a pretty good story line. The acting is (purposely) over the top, and where else can you see a bunch of zombies line dance? If you're up for some (on purpose) stupid funny humor, this may be for you.
I would place the genre as dark comedy/horror (light on the horror).

I didn't whether to scream or laugh most of the time in this movie.
There was lots of blood and gore, but it was just so darn funny while being a scary movie I couldn't turn away from the screen.
A real country zombie ho-down!
Not typical zombies... they could think and talk... and that was a laugh riot too, cause they also crazy.
