Plot Summary:
"One night per year the Museum of the Dead opens its doors to exhibit a collection of cursed artifacts. But something hideous is roaming these halls, feasting on the flesh of the innocent. A cannibalistic horror is alive. The hunger is spreading. And the only escape is through the hordes of the damned."

If you can imagine what 'House of the Dead' would have looked like had it been set in a museum, then you probably won't need to watch this movie, as it centres on a bunch of people in search of fun on Halloween Night who decide to head to the titular place in search of a few fun frights.

The assorted bunch of disposable characters wander aimlessly through the least convincing museum set ever (it looks like a zap zone you would find in your local megabowl) as they are given a couple of lines to say before unconvincing zombies chew on their necks.

Starting off alright with some unusual 2-D animation over the title sequence, the film suffers from a lack of a core central cast, and the plot seems to be missing also.

The two main characters bump into couples, friends, a jewel thief and even a couple of cops as they run to and fro, occasionally seeking shelter in a wide open and not very discreet hut which for some reason the zombies never seem to enter.

The lead female, and Ginger Snaps Backs' Nathaniel Arcand (didn't see this on his resume) come off the best amidst a flurry of animation, tightly framed fight sequences and blue skinned glowy eyed zombies, but surprisingly enough it managed to be ever so slightly better than the filmmakers last effort, the atrocious 'Horror 102: Endgame'.

Not the most original or exciting horror movie ever, but I've seen far worse and I really appreciated the attempts at adding mythology to the 'story' via the good ole Day of the Dead shenanigans. I'm more partial to accepting that it was a ploy to highlight the title of two of the companies upcoming films though, as they are now working on a remake of 'Day of the Dead' having just completed the unofficial sequel 'Day of the Dead 2: Contagium'.
