I am a huge Full Moon fan and own most of the films if not all of them in some form. So every year when October rolls around and I get even more into watching all my horror films. True I watch them all year long but Halloween time makes them just a little more special. I wish I could say that this film is just as special but sadly it is not. This for a Full Moon film is average at best, I love these types of flicks but it just fell flat most of the time.
The story is about a silent movie star who is having one of the best nights of her life. Her career is going great and all her friends are at her house for a party. All of that is great until she is informed that her contract with the studio is being cancelled. The new age of talking pictures has stopped her career cold. In receiving this information she kills her entourage as well as herself condemning them to a life stuck in that house. Fast forward to the here and now and two female relaters are excited to be selling the old house. After meeting there to finalize the deal with the new buyer the women are attacked by the long thought gone inhabitants of the house. What's worse is they may be a part of something bigger.
It is easy to see what director Charles Band was going for here, that old school Hollywood look and feel. As for the overall feeling of the film I think he accomplished that. Still this film just falls flat even with band accomplishing what he wanted to. The story is cool enough story but it wasn't executed correctly I guess. As for the acting it is exactly what it should have been for this type of flick but even that feels out of place in a film where it should have been right at home. Everything about this flick is cheesy B movie badness, oh how I wish it was cheesy B movie goodness. Even with Eric Roberts it is a bit of a let down.
The zombie makeup is good for this kind of flick but they look more ghoul/demon like then zombie like. Still I take that as a good thing as I do with the other thing this movie did right, the ladies. Well not just the ladies but the ladies and the lack of their clothes. For a good portion of this movie it is almost a porno at one point as the silent starlet and her crew are into some very freaky things. So over this entire movie isn't all bad, I would have loved a Videozone for this. That would have been excellent, or maybe a commentary from Band himself.
