Tagline: You're Invited To Orville's "Coming-Out" Party...It'll Be A Scream...YOURS!!!

Plot: A movie director and his troupe of actor friends vacation on a remote island where they dig up a corpse and jokingly perform a ceremony to resurrect it. It works! Interesting, garishly-colored zombie makeups and an offbeat counter-cultural feel make this an interesting curiosity.

external linkAt times chaotically plotted and overly talky this low-budget production still manages to be campy and decently directed with some okay make-up effects. ... Schlocky drive-in fare with a great title. 2/4

external linkEverything in the film itself is boring, with the sole exception being one scene that is not boring but offensive instead. 0.5/5
--Jack Witzig (ColdSpot)

external linkDespite some bad attempts at black comedy, this low-budget effort has some good scary moments. Some hammy acting and hilarious seventies clothes styles may bring some chuckles.
