Plot Summary:
"A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother as a flesh-craving zombie, who sires more teen undead while trying to control his, er, appetite for his beloved."

Teen David Leon canít bear to have the lovely Samantha Mumba love another (she doesnít, it was an oh-so funny misunderstanding involving supposed oral sex. Charming these kids are, charming), so he attempts suicide. Luckily his mother had just uncovered some voodoo book and tries to bring him back to life. Unfortunately he is turned into a flesh-eating zombie, and soon his entire school are lurching about and munching on one another.

Entirely dull 2005 Stephen Bradley horror film takes an eternity to get going and is populated by some of the most unsympathetic, uninteresting teenage British prats Iíve ever encountered, leading man Leon especially. And you thought only American youngsters could be self-involved, unpleasant twerps. By the way, whose dumb idea was it to have our leading manís suicide attempt be worked into this zombie flick? Was that meant to be funny or entertaining in any way? I wasnít laughing and certainly wasnít entertained.

The film also makes nary a lick of sense, especially the character of Leonís mother, who makes some inexplicable decisions in regards to her son. Also, given she played (if memory serves) a mother to a young boy in the watchable ďTime MachineĒ remake (not to mention she was sort of Guy Pearceís leading lady, once his lady love was killed), itís a little odd to see Mumba playing a high schooler. She also looks kinda demonic, if you ask me. And sorry, but oral sex just ainít cinematically pleasurable- if I ainít gettiní breasts, I ainít liking it (Thereís even the inevitable zombie oral sex gag).

OVERALL SUMMARY
Witless, pointless, and not nearly as gory as I had heard. it plays like ďVampires at Grange HillĒ. These zombies seemed more undead before they became The Undead.
