Reduce your expectations—a title like Dead & Breakfast certainly
suggests you do so—and you might be pleasantly surprised. At first, the movie
seems to bear all the earmarks of inauspicious straight-to-video fare, as six
friends in a Winnebago pull up to the backwoods town of Lovelock and soon find
themselves pitted against carnivorous, zombielike hicks. But an anarchic, goofy
sense of humor quickly asserts itself, setting Matthew Leutwyler's flick in
higher company—not quite Shaun of the Dead, but up there.
