Dance of the Dead (2008)
As prom gets underway and the dead come out to play, the only hope for saving the day is the mismatched couple that can't seem to agree on anything. As the Cosa High School Senior Prom draws near, the local teens are more preoccupied with getting laid and looking good on the big night. But while local teen Jimmy (Jared Kusnitz) seems completely unfazed by all the infectious enthusiasm that's spreading through the student body, his girlfriend Lindsey (Greyson Chadwick) has thrown herself into the teenage ritual and remains determined to have the perfect romantic evening. But it's kind of difficult to enjoy an intimate dance when your classmates are trying to eat your brains, and when the tux-clad teens begin turning blue and munching on flesh, Jimmy and Lindsey are forced to put their differences aside long enough to extinguish the zombie plague before it spreads beyond campus grounds. … More

Critic Reviews for Dance of the Dead
Never forgets its audience's sensibilities and makes for some truly great Halloween festivities...
A clunky, low-budget zombie send-up, Dance has heart and a few surprises, but it swallows patience by the pound, reheating screenplay leftovers and trying to disguise the results under the forgiving blanket of the horror genre.
while this is not quite Heathers, the high school setting allows for some amiable teen satire to give all those rotting corpses a certain freshness.
It's fast and funny, sick and sweet, geeky and gory. Basically, a whole lot of fun.
Audience Reviews for Dance of the Dead
From the title and the premise you can't really expect much from a 21st century high-school zombie romp. But this surprisingly delivers. It's funny, crazy and fast-paced entertainment. Jared Kusnitz plays a charming lead as Jimmy the reluctant hero. For a low-budget movie it ticks all the boxes in terms of a witty script, swift direction and a dynamic cast. It's actually captures the feel of the good old zombie films of the past. Ultimately its fun - the gore is humourous, there's satisfyingly cheesy one liners ('Where y'all going?' 'To the prom to kick some zombie ass') and clever set pieces (loved the contrast of the funeral home then the prom). For £5 for the DVD, fun is all it needed to be.More
i love zombie movies but this is just so boring and rubbish that its really not worth the watch!!More
This was an enjoyable and funny Zombie Film. Ment for those of High School Age Crowd, I still found this one to be interesting and enjoyable. This is part of the 2008 Ghost House Underground Series. That being said I have only see two movies from Ghost House Underground, my guess trying to compete with the 8 Films to Die For. So if you want a little enjoyment with some pizza and popcorn this is your Movie. If your looking for scares and thrills or something for a Horror show weekend this is not your film. 3 1/2 stars which is pretty good for a zombie film.More
