Bad, but not as bad as I originally thought

"When I first watched Dead and Rotting, I thought it was one of the worst movies I'd ever seen. As I saw more of these horrible B Movies though(such as KillJoy 1 AND 2, Prison of the Dead, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, etc), I realized that strangely enough Dead and Rotting is one of the better ones. Let me just repeat: this movie is really bad. I would not suggest buying it unless you are in some way related to anyone who was involved with it and simply don't want to hurt their feelings. It IS, however, perfectly good for renting if you plan to watch it with a group of people. The reason for this is that it is just so bad that it is hilarious. The basic plot focuses on what happens to three guys when they upset a local witch by trespassing and then later messing with her cat. The dialog is unrealistic, and there are plot elements that just don't make ANY sense at all, but that is exactly why it is still a very enjoyable movie to watch with friends if you keep in mind that it is not being watched for its cinematic value. The bottom line is that this is the kind of movie that is fun to make fun of."
If you like B movies you'll love this.

"Ok I really had a good time with this movie, who are you folks that think this would be high art? The name, the box art and everything about this flick say's grade B movie, why in the hell would you think it would be a block buster?
This is a blast with a very original story and a cool cast of bone headed guys.
My only real complaint is the minimal amount of T.& A.
If you like B movies like I do this is the top of the pile and you can buy it used for less then you can rent it."

"Full Moon used to produce some top quality films from great director's such as Stewart Gordon and the like. Unfortunatly from about Puppet Master 4 onward, things have been looking VERY grim. The quality in there films have taken a drastic turn, apparently due to lack of funds...
...or cut backs in order to increase profits, who knows. What evert he reason, they can't seem to find a decent actors, directors, FX crews, Costume Managers, etc. For ANY of there films. I swear you can buy half there props and costumes at about any arts and craft store.
This movie sux, and not in a good way like Bad Taste, it's not so dumb and crappy it is funny, NOTHING!!!
Well except for the naked old lady, that in itself is worth the rental, infact if they would cut out the rest of the film save for that one scene, I'd say it would be worth buying."
Huh...what a pleasant surprise.

"I have a theory that the majority of horror fans want only two things. The first is lots and lots of blood, violence and gore. Some people have a real bloodlust. The other thing they are looking for is plenty of hot naked chicks.In my humble opinion, this film rises above most entries in the horror genre. The budget limitations of "Dead & Rotting" have virtually no effect on its final appearance. Even with more money, I think that whatever David Barton came up with would have appeared quite similar to what this one looked like.The pleasant surprise was the high level of acting. I always thought there was some unwritten law that you had to cast wooden and completely untalented college kids in low budget horror movies. That's not the case here. Barbara Katz-Norrod did a stunning job as the witch and I don't think that Debbie Rochon has ever been better in her whole career. All three male leads also appeared to be quite at ease in front of the camera.That's not to say there aren't problems. I don't want to give anything away, but "Dead & Rotting" went into a freefall for the last fifteen minutes or so. I was tremendously disappointed at how conventional and predictable the ending was. The movie had seemed a lot fresher before it fell back on horror movie cliches to resolve the main conflict.As an overall movie, "Dead & Rotting" is rather entertaining and I would go so far as to call it a hidden gem as far as low budget horror goes."
