Overview

A road trip rolls through a small town where the line between the dead and the living has become a bit problematic in this horror parody. A handful of twentysomethings are driving to Galveston, TX, in an RV to attend the wedding of a close friend. After a long day on the road, the travelers find themselves in a tiny town called Lovelock, where the only available accommodations are at a bed and breakfast run by the eccentric Mr. Wise (David Carradine). One of the kids, Johnny (Oz Perkins), notices that Mr. Wise is carefully looking after a small box; curious about its contents, Johnny opens it, only to unleash a torrent of evil spirits who turn the local rednecks into bloodthirsty creatures hovering somewhere between life and death. Dead & Breakfast features supporting performances by Portia de Rossi, Diedrich Bader, Jeremy Sisto, and David Carradine's daughter Ever Carradine; co-star Oz Perkins is also the offspring of a well-known actor, Anthony Perkins.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
If anything, Dead & Breakfast's heart is in the right place -- with its gore-splattered insanity and slapstick leanings, this horror comedy tries hard to be the next midnight cult fave, which it very well might become despite its pedestrian stabs at wacky hijinks. In distribution hell for almost a year, the flick occupied its own place in 2003-2004's indie zombie horror triumviral that included the U.K.'s Shaun of the Dead and Australia's own Undead, all of which share the love for the genre in their own distinct ways. Breakfast's stamp comes in the form of a goofy style of humor that throws as many jokes to the wall as it does appendages. Though the joke-by-the-minute approach certainly isn't the best, you can't say that the filmmakers didn't try to do something different. With its inventive use of comic-styled illustrations and a hillbilly honky-tonk musician narrator, Dead & Breakfast certainly tries to do something new, even if the filmmakers' ideas are often loftier than the eye-rolling outcomes (look no further than the dreadful redneck rap musical number for proof). On the upside, the movie does embrace its 35 mm stock to give a better-than-DV quality to it and there certainly are plenty of blood buckets for the fans to slop up, so at least it can be easily devoured by the genre masses despite its bitter aftertaste.

While not entierly a zombie film in the traditional sense, it is well worth the watch and even more worth the purchase. The writing in this movie is very well done and very funny. Every character is enjoyable to watch and because the overall tone of the film is geared towards humor you really won't feel too distraught when some of them meet their end. If you are a fan of gore you will not be disappointed as there is a beheading or two as well as buckets and buckets of that red stuff we all love. This is a quirky indie film and you are hurting yourself if you do no watch this little gem. It shows that there is still plenty of life in the zombie genre and that is never a bad thing.
