Dead & Breakfast Screening


We just got word that Ambush entertainment emailed to let us know that Dead & Breakfast will be playing on April 20th - 26th at the Two Boots Pioneer Theatre,  155 East 3rd Street @ ave. A.

I have never seen the film but I know if I was near New York City I would hit this screening for sure. I have heard nothing but praise for this movie. I have even heard that it rivals Shaun of the Dead. So if you live anywhere near New York City I recommend you go check this film out.

A group of friends packed in a RV get lost on their way to a wedding, so they decide to spend the night at a spooky little Southern bed and breakfast owned by David Carradine. Spooky is as spooky does, little sleep is had by anyone before the owner turns up dead from an apparent heart attack and his cook is found splattered all over the kitchen. The local huckleberry authorities insist that their new visitors stay in town as they’re now a part of a murder investigation. This leaves plenty of time for the nosy city folk to go poking around where they shouldn’t, ultimately cracking open a box containing an angry spirit that winds up turning the inhabitants of the town into bloodthirsty ghouls. Cue the carnage. From the hair raising hoe-down forward, Dead and Breakfast is a complete bloodbath as the survivors from our group of friends board themselves up in the bed and breakfast, fending off a growing army of zombies! 

What stands out here is not the massive amount of gore, but the quality. Blue-faced creeps aside, the blood and guts of Dead and Breakfast conjure memories of Peter Jackson’s redder and wetter earlier works. The gore is stellar in this one and it makes D&B stand out from the rest of the pack. And like Jackson’s earlier films, there’s an affinity for goofball comedy as well. To give you an idea of the humor of D&B, the musical interludes and full-on dance number, which would have difficulty finding a way to fit into most other horror movies, totally work here. It’s just that silly and it’s a bloody good time.
