Movie Info

Director Scooter McCrae turns the zombie genre on its head in the groundbreaking horror film Shatter Dead. The Angel of Death has descended to Earth, and upon impregnating a mortal woman the dead cease to die. Tormented at being stuck in a twilight zone between life and death, undead attempt to return to their normal lives and reconnect with the ones they loved while living. As the clash between the terrified living and the mournful dead elevates into an all out war, a mortal woman named Susan (Stark Raven) attempts to reconnect with her undead boyfriend and find some sanity in a world that is falling apart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Have you ever wondered what a zombie movie would look like if it were made by a bunch of . . . community college dropouts with a budget of fifty dollars? Well, look no further

Audience Reviews for Shatter Dead

My love of zombies will normally save a movie no matter how awful it is, but that is not the case with Shatter Dead. Plain and simple, this movie is a steaming, freshly laid elephant turd. I have very rarely seen acting this bad. It's so damn bad that Porn actors have these people beat 10 to 1. I'm not asking for Oscar worthy performances but a single bit of competence is rather nice. Even the competence of Manos: The Hands of Fate would have been nice. The plot was interesting and I love the idea of intelligent zombies but the execution of it was so haphazard that you ended up not caring. Shatter Dead goes back and forth, never deciding if it wants to be serious or campy/funny. The only way I can see anyone liking this movie is if someone hit them repeatedly in the temple with a ball-peen hammer before it started.

I wanted to give this a -15%. This is quite possibly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I see no redeemable factors. *Spoiler* She has sex with her zombie boyfriend by strapping her handgun to his crotch. That about says it all. Actually this is second worst: Has anyone seen "Entrails of a Virgin"...advice = don't.
