Audience Member I wish this movie was available on DVD! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Night Life is a fun zombie horror comedy about a highschooler working as a mortician when things start going wrong. A lot of the action doesn't get started until later in the film but it starts off with a fun bully / nerd highschool cliche that I always like. It also stars John Astin from the Addams Family and the kid from Critters. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A solid semi low budget zombie film with enjoyable characters for the most part, especially the mane character Archie who is played by Scott Crimes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good zombie flick. Good character development but it's a little slow at the start. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie and I grew up on this one. Funny ass, cheesy, gore-filled 80's horror film. Definitely a movie not to be taken seriously. This is another hard to find DVD, but there are VHS copies all over the internet. "Archie can't catch a break. He works for his slimy uncle Verlin(played by John Astin) as an undertaker's assistant, the girl he lusts after (Fuller) is dating some Neanderthal and the girl he likes is leaving town for good. The school bullies want to kick his ass and college seems like an impossible dream. Just when you think it can't go any worse for the poor schmuck, the bullies die in a car crash (both with their respective girlfriends) and come back from the dead to not only make his life miserable but to try and rip him apart limb by limb." It's like Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets Return of the Living Dead. Loads of fun and tons of gore, this is a great film for the Halloween season. A must see for a true horror fan(and open minded as well). This movie is pure entertainment, a bloody B movie with lots of eye candy and enough whacky humor to satisfy your needs. Just have fun with this film, because that's what it's meant for in the first place. Highly Recommended! <a href="¤t=NightLife.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Okej, jag får erkänna; jag tycker att Night of the living dead som high school-komedi pappret är en bra idé. Resultatet är dock blekt. Framför allt tar det enorm tid, över en timme, innan det blir några zombies alls. Om jag inte hade ett osunt gott öga till 80-talsskräck skulle den där andra stjärnan sitta väldigt löst. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
