Movie Info

Two ambitious realtors purchase a mansion once owned by a tragic silent film starlet, and discover too late that it comes with a deadly secret in this supernatural shocker from director Charles Band. Reese (Jessica Morris) and Danni (Ariana Madix) are looking for a house to restore and sell when they happen across a Hollywood chateau once owned by Rose Pettigrew (Jean Louise O'Sullivan), a silent-era icon who was dumped by the studios following the transition to sound, and embarked on a suicidal murder rampage that claimed the lives of comic Tubby Fitzgerald (Nihilist Gelo), horror legend Erik Burke (Robert Zachar), and cowboy legend Sonny Barnes (Eric Roberts). Decades later, that dark history still looms heavy in those cavernous hallways. At first Reese and Danni think they've stumbled into the deal of a lifetime. And they couldn't be more right, because this house is haunted, and odds are they'll never live to find anything better. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Dead Want Women


The movie takes a neat setting and starts off really intriguing- before turning into a soft porno and a typical b-movie horror flick. The characters are awful, though the cast is nice. Terrible make-up, too much time wasted on sex, and a ultimately cruddy ending. The film feels like another quick buck with wasted talent.

A super-crappy supernatural thriller (and I use the word begrudgingly) about some evil folks from the roaring 20s who return from the dead to haunt two women in the present, The Dead Want Women is as crappy as horror cinema gets. But I guess I should have seen that coming since it features Eric Roberts as its only star attraction....

Starts off slow and stays that way , they need to figure out adding a lot of nudity adds nothing if you don't have a decent story or acting.
