SYNOPSIS: In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable, and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. News reports are scary, and scientists are concerned, but no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: the dead rise from their graves and feast on the living, and the citizens must battle to survive.

MY RATING: (★★★) This is not the best apple in the bunch, but I’m here to bring you the good, the bad, and “what was that.”  Good lineup of stars, and some really funny points, but the ending is, well …it just is. This director is known for his dry satire and deadpan humor.
