Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Ellory Elkayem, you were so good at comedy in "Eight Legged Freaks"-what happened?! May 26, 2011 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy It's cheesy and squirrelly, but at least it's not wretched. If that sounds like the faintest praise with which I can damn something, it's meant to be. Rated: 3/10 Apr 25, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

justin t There is nothing that is good about this movie. It is all bad but that I why I didn't hate it. It was paced quite quickly and there is lots of zombie gore. The story is stupid and so are the characters but in its favour it is easy to follow and all of the people are characters different from one another. Bad in a glorious way. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Uncle Charles (Peter Coyote), Becky Carlton (Aimee-Lynn Chadwick), Cody (Cody Hardrict) and Julian Garrison (John Keefe) return from the last movie, while Katie Williams (Jana Kramer) was going to come back as well, but Kramer had a serious gallbladder infection and could not appear. That meant that she was killed off and replaced by Jenny (Jenny Mollen). Shot in the home of 2000s direct to SyFy movies, Romania and the Ukraine, this movie concerns, yes, a rave and zombies. Also a drug made from Trioxin called Z that turns you onto a zombie when you smoke it and yeah, that's about the only clever part of this. I take that back. Tarman shows up and has to hitchhike to the rave, which has already been bombed by U.S. planes. I'm really happy that they stopped this series of movies after this film. The 2000s were not kind to horror and this is but one exhibit of the sheer garbage that we had to wade through. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review R P I shouldn't be surprised that Return of the Living Dead Rave to the Grave was made immediately after Necropolis. Same director, writers, and four returning actors/characters. This movie is still bad but slightly better than Necropolis. Having said that, the first time I watched this I thought I liked it. After a re-watch, I think I'm remembering a different zombie rave movie. This isn't it.(https://foreverfinalgirl.com/return-living-dead-rave-grave/) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/15/21 Full Review Audience Member This movie is just awful. The Return of the Living Dead was amazing, my favorite horror movie ever. This one just blows. Many things do not make sense. 1. So it has the same actor(s) playing the same characters as the 4th one, but no reference is made to that. So it is not even a sequel or a continuation. Like the 4th one never happened. 2. In the original shooting the zombies in the head does nothing, and yet in this one it kills them. WTF. They could at least had a 10 second scene explaing it was a weaker version of Trioxin 245, maybe Trioxin 244. 3. The acting is bad. Just skip it altogether. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Plain awful, enough said. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A total embarrassment to the ROTLD Siri's, managing to be neither scary nor funny. enough. This must've been made in Eastern Europe considering the number of i"-ivic" and "-ovitchs" in the credits. That includes the cast with the number of actors having their voices obviously poorly overdubbed. Stupid characters do stupid things for no reason, like a science student conducting an "experiment" by feeding lab brats zombie barrel juice. Most laughable moment: the introduction of Cory as the science guy wearing our white lab jacket and pouring the same liquid between two breakers at a dance party. Why? Who knows! A shade above half star hell because I like the two Russian agents who seem to have unlimited legal access because they work for interpole, the women are good looking, in the barrel zombie trying to hitch a ride. And by the way, where are the teachers??? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
