Midnight Horror Review - Dead Don't Die In Dallas

As you already know by the title of this post, I'm reviewing the dark horror comedy Dead Don't Die In Dallas, which was released to DVD by Mill Creek Entertainment back in September.

Written and directed by Isreal Luna, the film stars Richard D. Curtain, Krystal Summers, Angel Martinez, Dillon Vineyard, Kenny Ochoa, and William Belli.

Originally titled "Kicking Zombie Ass for Jesus," the movie was shot in only seventeen days in 2013 with the help of a IndieGoGo campaign that raised $7,200. Later, the director got the additional funding of $150,000 from ITN and CalTex Films, LLC, which was used for the post-production special effects. 

The movie takes place in a world where the government invented a "miracle pill" that's supposed to cure all viral infectious diseases. However, there's a little side effect - you turn into a brain hungry zombie!! The protagonist involve mixture of die-hard Christians and transsexuals in a small Texas town. Despite their many differences, they attempt to work together during the outbreak. This is a horror flick, so things don't as planned.

Final Thoughts

Overall, Dead Don't Die in Dallas is decent watch if you can past the extremely low-budget, the intentional bad acting, dumb dialogue, and the political overtones. The film itself has a grindhouse feel to it, which I'm guessing the director added in post-production to cover up the low-budget effects. The plot is heavily influenced by George Romero's Night of the Living Dead but with added satire humor. If you can lower your standards, then you might enjoy watching Dead Don't Die in Dallas but if you're wanting something amazing, then you're going to be disappointed.
