Movie Info

A road trip rolls through a small town where the line between the dead and the living has become a bit problematic in this horror parody. A handful of twentysomethings are driving to Galveston, TX, in an RV to attend the wedding of a close friend. After a long day on the road, the travelers find themselves in a tiny town called Lovelock, where the only available accommodations are at a bed and breakfast run by the eccentric Mr. Wise (David Carradine). One of the kids, Johnny (Oz Perkins), notices that Mr. Wise is carefully looking after a small box; curious about its contents, Johnny opens it, only to unleash a torrent of evil spirits who turn the local rednecks into bloodthirsty creatures hovering somewhere between life and death. Dead & Breakfast features supporting performances by Portia de Rossi, Diedrich Bader, Jeremy Sisto, and David Carradine's daughter Ever Carradine; co-star Oz Perkins is also the offspring of a well-known actor, Anthony Perkins. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

This strenuous zombie yukfest is no more sophisticated than its nail-on-head title -- making it a joke no smarter than the movies it riffs on.

Matthew Leutwylers horror movie about six young people trapped in a creepy small town goes for parody and fails.

It's hard not to like a movie in which the leader of the zombies uses a decapitated head as a hand puppet.

The blood is raspberry syrup, the gags gag, and the film virtually falls over itself informing us how lame it is.

I laughed, I marveled at Gina Philips and Ever Carradine, and did I mention that I laughed?

If you're in the mood for zombie splatter fest filled with cool rockabilly tunes, Dead & Breakfast is where you need to end up.

Audience Reviews for Dead and Breakfast


To me...this film is just one big joke. If it weren't a musical, (yeah, I said musical) I would probably give it a chhance, despite the non-funny humor. However, there was blood, so I'll give it just a little credit. Otherwise, it is terrible. Do not watch it.

Not necessarily "The U.S. answer to Shaun Of The Dead", but a fun flick with lots of gore.

Dull and very cheap. God only know why sum of these actors got into this film.

This movie was kind of amusing. I think the best part was that country minstrel-type guy who tunred into a rapper after he died. This movie really ran with the post-modern zombie movie premise and kind of descended too far into camp for my taste. It had some really funny moments and the gore was really well done, but it was missing something. Hrad to put my finger on.
