“One of the funniest films of its kind ever made.” —Jay Scott, The Globe and Mail
“Any film which features a dead, bald and very hungry punk lurching towards the camera screaming 'More Brains!' gets my vote.” —Time Out
When two bumbling employees at a medical supply warehouse accidentally release a toxic gas that reanimates the dead buried in a nearby cemetery. As the reanimated corpses hunger for human brains, chaos and mayhem ensue.
A group of unsuspecting punk rockers, along with a group of mortuary employees, find themselves trapped in a nightmarish battle for survival as the relentless zombies close in on them.
