A bunch of teens...that's the way these movies always start, teens in bunches. Anyway, a bunch of teens get sidetracked on their way to a debate. They end up in a ghost town filled with zombies. Or maybe it's a zombie town. Bloody Bill is the king zombie. He wants revenge for something that happened during the civil war. So the teens will pay for being teens in Bill town. Bloody bill will bang his zombie head to harsh metal while dealing out death. Kill Bill Kill.
This was a decent straight to video zombie flick. There was enough gore here to let me overlook any other B-movie deficiencies. Somehow zombies are becoming associated with metal music. After "Dawn of the Dead" blasting eardrums with "Down with the Sickness", "Bloody Bill" continues the zombie/metal love affair. Every time Bill and friends were chasing teens, it was metal time. From beyond the grave, Bill rocks on.
SCORE: 2.5 out of 4 hard rocking monsters
