"Jolly Roger: Massacre at Cutter's Cove" review

Jolly Roger: Massacre at Cutter's Cove (2005)

Rhett Giles.... Jolly Roger

Kristina Korn.... Jessie

A bunch of teens bring a pirate back to life. He's the Jolly Roger. The one thing that makes him very jolly is cutting off people's heads. He stalks his way through the town and kills any scurvy dog that was related to his mutinous crew. Heads fly off in all directions. Only the two star crossed lovers care enough to do some research on Jolly Roger to try to figure out a way to end his head chopping ways.

I was pleased with "Jolly Roger". It may be the best undead pirate flick I've ever seen. They were not shy with the blood and guts. Heads rolled here. Heads rolled there. Sometimes, heads just popped straight up. Lots of heads in a dead man's chest. Jolly Roger even had time to check out a strip club. He was there to do some head chopping and some breast watching. Of course, Jolly Roger couldn't leave without getting a lap dance. A lap dance for the zombie pirate. That was a great B-movie moment. I applauded. It made me jolly too.

SCORE: 2 out of 4 zombie pirate lap dances
