Wow! What a pleasant surprise. Picked this DVD up in a Previously Viewed Horror 8 pack at Fields for $7. Wasn't expecting much, but what the heck, 8 movies for seven bucks. This was by far the best, but the Ghost House Series (there were 3 others in the batch) seems pretty decent for unknown low budget horror. Dance of the Dead is sort of an amalgam of Night of the Creeps and Return of the Living Dead. On Prom Night, geeks join up with cheerleaders to kick some zombie butt. The teenage characters are interesting and likeable, lot's of satire and tongue in cheek humour, combined with some memorable lines, make this a keeper. You have to love a movie where, when new lovers become zombies, they really give each other "the tongue".
