‘Sometimes evil just won’t stay dead’
The Mennonite of the Living Dead is a 2019 American comedy horror film about couples that go to a cabin for a fun weekend but encounter an Amish zombie.
Written and directed by Clayton Spinney, making his feature debut, the Barnyard Studios production stars Jeffrey S. Mueller, Mor Hall, Rick Jermain, Molly Moss, Rowan Titus and Marcus Lawrence.
Six thirty-somethings try to spice up their stale marriages with a weekend of drinking and swapping partners at a secluded cabin in the woods. Meanwhile, an Amish farmer’s corpse is resurrected when a satanic ritual goes awry, and his murderous rampage soon stops the couple’s fun and frolicking dead…
“A good deal of the humor falls flat or is just hard to watch, but some is actually funny or at least fun to watch. So even if the jokes fizzle, sometimes the cast or the situations can compensate. I might not have loved this one, but it is was fun most of the time and I was never bored. So if you don’t mind some lame humor with your zombie Mennonites, give this a shot.” Marc Fusion
The Mennonite of the Living Dead is available on Amazon Prime
This film was primarily shot in one weekend, in a rented cabin at a state park. The crew did not have permission to film there and had to hide their activities from neighbouring cabins.
