Additional Info

This is a comedy thriller in a weird and sinister setting the Okefenokee Swamp in Florida where voodoo practices are accepted. In a decayed mansion dripping with cobwebs and mystery, a former carnival hypnotist calling himself Baron Samedi and a crooked sheriff have developed an "unusual" business. They turn illegal immigrants, petty criminals and intruders into zombies and lease them out as farm laborers. Profits and success aren't enough, however. The hypnotist wants revenge against those who have wronged him in the past. Soon the house is shaking with thrills, shivering shocks, and a startling climax. For the young television producer and his two girls friends who stumble onto the grim proceedings, it's a night to remember, especially when they encounter "The Walking Dead". Despite the goosebumps, this chiller is loaded with genuine comedy and keeps its audience in a state of taut excitement and laughter. The roles are fun and production needs are simple.
