Dixie is a thirteen-year-old girl, unhappy with her life: five years ago her mother divorced from her father, a coroner, and in her college, she is considered weird due to her gothic look. One night, Dixie suffers an accident when a tree crashes against her during a storm. Dixie wakes up later in the middle of a cemetery, turned into a zombie.

“…for all its faults, it has a certain naive charm. I just wish that it had had the courage of its convictions, because at some point in its gestation it had the potential to be a much better – and more enjoyable – film.” The Skull Illusion

It isn’t funny, it isn’t frightening and every set-piece action scene is a dismal failure. On the plus side, it is quite atmospheric; the music is pretty much bang-on and the sets and cinematography look great. The stylised animations would be rather good too if they didn’t all go wrong with the legs and make everyone walk funny.” Starburst
