Never heard of it, sorry. Allmovie.com is surprisingly fond of it, though, calling it "a playful exercise in horror filmmaking" and "one of the more inventive zombie movies to come out in the wake of Night of the Living Dead."

I haven't seen it in years, but I remember being bored to death by it. I guess I was about 16 when I saw it. Don't remember much now, but Nathan Shumate's admittance to pleading with the movie to "please get on with it!" in his review sounds like my experience with it. (If you read Nathan's review, beware that he's long on plot summary -- but he's still wonderfully entertaining.) The movie was directed by Bob Clark (Porky's), who went on to make Deathdream and Black Christmas in 1974. I haven't seen the former, but Black Christmas is one of the first American slasher films, a chilling precursor to Halloween and When a Stranger Calls. I'd recommend checking it out if you haven't already.



Welcome to the forum, by the way.
