"..what this movie is all about? While stylish and often times very funny, LEGION OF THE DEAD doesn't know whether it wants to be a tribute to EVIL DEAD or just an excuse for some bloody goings on. Two friends drifting through the California desert are picked up by a deranged hitchhiker. Meanwhile two grey-suited hitmen are going around killing people to enlist them in a legion of the dead. The hitmen are funny, especially the inept drunken one who is always getting himself killed over and over again. They answer to a tall blonde who purportedly may be the Devil. We also have a buxom barmaid named Geena who is the one person the Devil is seeking. how does this all come together? It really doesn't and that's what keeps this movie from being a good one...it does have some funny moments, but the acting is histrionic and since we don't know what in the world is going on, its ending only manages to confirm the lack of coherency."

"This is easily one of the most confusing, meaningless low budget horror movies out there. The writer has several characters, some connected, some not, all thrown together with no plot and little meaning. The dialogue between the characters is interesting in places, but that can't save this movie.
It seems like it was meant to be a re-telling of From Dusk to Dawn, but then characters are included that are building a Legion of the Dead, yet this doesn't seem to tie into the rest of the film other than to provide a catchy title for the movie.
I have no clue what the creative vision was that was spinning in the writer/director's head, just that whoever put this together needs to have an editor take a much firmer hand next time. The ending is even terrible.
Look, if you want funny horror, watch Evil Dead- again. If you want Tarantino does vampires and demons, watch From Dusk Till Dawn (ok, he's just an actor in it, but humor me here). Just do yourself a favor and don't waste an hour and half of your time like I did.
Not Recommended at all.
Horrible, Terrible, Horrible... Atrociously Horrible

"Why is there no ZERO stars rating option? Because this movie needs it. This movie is absolutely terrible. I can't even begin to explain how rediculously and absurdly bad-bad-bad this movie is. Wow. Bad. No plot, no reasoning, just a cavalcade of bad actors attempting to act like something other than bad actors in bizarre, randomly spliced-together scenes leading nowhere.
Story setup: none.
Horror: weak attempts.
I rented this movie because it looked awesome, and the title reminded me of one of my favorite Testament songs ("Legions of the Dead"). When I returned it I asked for my money back."
