I give it 2 stars because it is really boring. It doesn't get going until way into the movie, then it isn't even that much fun. Phillys Diller, her dog, and the scary little creep kids are the stars here, and they get about 10 minuntes total of the film. The other characters aren't interesting or funny in the least bit, and aren't even tolerable, honestly. They're on the screen waaay too long. It took me two sittings to get through this one. When it's funny, it's weak, but if you love B-films, although I do, you might want to try it out. It seems to be more sought after now that it's no longer made.
This movie has almost everything to keep a cheesy movie fan pleased. It has zombies, phyllis diller, a psychic, and a big zombie poodle. Yes, a zombie poodle. The zombie poodle didn't get as much screen time as it should've but its worth the price for that alone. The original box had a picture of the poodle on it with the quote "keep repeating to yourself, it's only a poodle" and thats why I originally watched this. The only reason it didn't get a higher review was because the movie drags until the last half.
