Movie Info

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Oct 13, 2008 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • It's fast and funny, sick and sweet, geeky and gory. Basically, a whole lot of fun.

    Mar 19, 2008 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If you love zombie movies, teen comedies or just guilty pleasure films, then Dance of The Dead is a must see.

    High school graduation and zombies, yay. These are the quick zombies if one cares about that differentiation. And excepting one zpmbie make-out session that's gonna need more ketchup there's little here that hasn't been done elsewhere and much better. And that is that. Save it for later if you must.

    There are some obvious budget restraints and the script could slow down a bit once in a while for little more character development (horror movies don't usually do this, but this one makes an effort) , still overall this is a very fun film that offers plenty of laughs and blood to make everyone watching it have a great time.

    One or two nice moments, but as a whole, meh.

    Brilliantly fun zombie film. On prom night the dead rise and start killing everyone in town and it turns out the only people that can save the school and everyone else are the geeky Sci-Fi Club. Obviously, this is a perfect beer and pizza movie with nods to zombie classics like Return of the Living Dead and Braindead among others. There's some really cool moments like zombies bursting out of graves and the zombies reaction to live music. Theres gore, theres laughs, theres pretty ladies and plenty of zombies. Not much more you can ask for really!
