    7 / 10
    A truly silly and laughable parody of "Dawn Of The Dead". This movie is so silly, it`s actually funny on several occasions. Go figure... .
    Why this movie is already considered cult-material is really beyond me.
    The video transfer is ok. There are no compression signs and the special effects are stupidly effective.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are effectively used and provide a rich sound envelope.
    The menus are nicely animated with sound.
    The extras include a commentary by the directors, several storyboards, a behind the scenes featurette, some explanations about the special effects, a picture gallery, a comics strip, some bloopers and 10 deleted scenes. For such a lousy movie, the extras really rock.
    Bottom line - sure, go ahead, watch this movie. I dare you to actually claim it is cult-material after all. I, for once, didn`t.
