Plotline: A mad-scientist figures out a way to re-animate the dead with a special serum. When he moves in with a fellow med-student, the med-student and his girlfriend accidentally become involved in the mad-scientist's crazy scheming. End results: headless corpses that think and speak and like to go down on chicks.

Scariness factor: Creepy, though not scary. Moreso campy-creepiness.

Gross-Out Factor: Lots of blood. Blood dribbling from mouths. Blood gushing out of eyeballs. Blood exploding from smooshed heads.

Complaints: This movie makes no sense (a decapitated head is able to function, speak, and breathe without any hook-ups to the appropriate lower-body parts--um, not so much anatomically correct, I'm thinking), but then again, I don't think it was supposed to.

High Points: I like this movie. Quite a bit. I've seen it before, but I enjoyed it even more this time. You love to hate the mad-scientist. The acting is sufficiently crappy without being TOO crappy. It's funny. It's campy. It has good pacing and doesn't bore. It's silly enough to be entertaining. It makes little sense, but is unapologetic about this fact. And it has old-school special fx, which always take a warm-spot in my heart.

Overall: This movie is just plain-old fun and entertaining. If you're looking for a good, goofbally horror movie to spend 80+ minutes watching, check it out. It won't disappoint.

Grade: A
