Pretty much, a film that is worth missing. Although I always love to see Sid Haig (which was my motivation for renting it), it was slow paced and silly.
The story starts off like them all, chick and dude in graveyard, dude does something stupid, dead people are walking around, dead people go after chick, chick flees, finds a farm house with people that don't believe the tale she has to tell...yada yada.
The things that sucked about this movie, mainly are the zombie kill scenes. To quote Clive Barker, "You can't make a good omlette without breaking eggs and you can't make a good horror movie without breaking heads". I didn't have 3D glasses, and I'm glad I didn't because the images were rough enough to see without them. Way too dark, way too much dialog about pot and pot smoking. Basically, the best thing this movie did for me was make me want to smoke a joint and I didn't even have one available...haha.
Sid Haig (of course) carried the movie, he sort of just walked through it and made it interesting. The beauty about Sid in the genre is he carries an air about him that makes you think "Oh crap, Sid's there so something wierd is gonna go down!" Unfortunately the director didn't bank on that aspect and make it work. Had he expanded on Sids character and what he was doing, this could have been an interesting romp in zombie world.
My best advice for watching this movie is, get some hit grade weed, smoke it until you are sitting on the couch "chinese eye'd" and warped. Rent and watch the following movies in this order. Mary Lambert's "Siesta", Stephen Sayadian's "Dr. Calgari", David Croneborgs "Vidoedrome" then order a pizza and watch this one.
