The story focuses around a theater troupe, led by Alan (Alan Ormsby) a mean-spirited director, who travel by boat to a small island for buried criminals. Using a grimoire, Alan begins a seance to raise the dead after digging up the body of a man named Orville Dunworth (Seth Sklarey). Though the original intent of the ritual may have been intended solely as a joke, Alan appears disappointed that his efforts received no response except from the mockings of cast member Val (Valerie Mamches). Afterwards the party continues and Alan goes to extremes to degrade the actors, using the corpse of Orville for his own sick jokes. The dead return and force the troupe to take refuge in the old house. They must decide whether it's best to stay put until day, provided the old house holds up against the undead onslaught, try to all flee through the pitch black cemetery and forest to the boat, or have one person brave the obstacle in hopes that they can bring back help in time.

This film is for sure a weird and twisted creation, love the atmosphere and the sets are very creepy, indeed a rough around the edges production, but I think that adds to the movies charm! Alan Ormsby definitely has a strange imagination & it shows both on screen and off.

Bob Clark is amazing and this film while being rough around the edges was a solid film. Did you know that Jeff Gillen who played Jeff in this one also played santa in CLarkes A Christmas Story

Cool film for sure.

The Character of Alan is quite the prick. Laughing

I like the big zombie sequence when they start breaking into the house.

I like the scene where I believe its Alan pretends to be undead and the undead actually believe him Very Happy
