With Prom only hours away, the usual suspects of Cosa High (cheerleaders, geeks, bad boys and the happy-go-lucky student council alike) are preoccupied with the annual rituals of teendom. On the night of the big dance when the dead unexpectedly rise to eat the living, polar opposite groups will be forced to unite in their final chance to save the town from the Zombies.

In this true underdog tale, Prom will be a night the students remember forever. It just won’t be what any of them had in mind!

Dr. Zombie’s Review:

Creating a comedic horror movie is risky business. Most often it ends in utter failure. The movie ends up not being funny or scary ( Weird how they never fail by being funny but not scary or vice versa, it is always not funny and not scary.) It is why I usually groan when I see another comedic horror movie. Dance of the Dead however delivered on both fronts. Now, I wouldn’t rank it up there with Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, or Fido; I do give this one a partially severed thumbs up. Not the funniest movie I have seen and not the scariest, but it delivered enough to recommend watching it. The script was well written and believable (as far as dialogue, not the whole zombies rocketing out of their graves to attend prom.) And the actors looked like actual teenagers instead of adults pretending to be teenagers. This movie is a prime example that you don’t need to spend millions of dollars to make a good movie. The gore was fantastic, especially for an independent film. I hope to see more movies like this entered into zombie lore..
