An ordinary evening in a small Texas town becomes a grisly nightmare when a horde of flesh-eating zombies goes on the prowl. Cherry (Rose McGowan), a go-go dancer, and Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), her ex-lover, band together with other survivors in a no-holds barred effort to escape the carnage. The odds become a bit more even when Cherry, who lost her leg to a hungry ghoul, gets a machine-gun appendage and lets the bullets fly. With Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn.
“Gloopy and outrageous, this schlock horror tribute is pure trash… in the best possible sense.” (
“Rodriguez just wants viewers to have a good time, and it comes across in the film — which is an extremely affectionate homage to seventies exploitation films.” (
