Run time - 90 minutes
So this is yet another movie that utilizes toxic waste to turns cadavers into the undead, but is Grave Mistake all that bad? Does it follow similar parameters of millions of other straight-to-DVD indie features that have somehow slipped into a mountainous forgotten realm, another dimension perhaps?
When Phil gets dragged into a dismemberment free-for-all feast (…this isn’t spos’ to happen, I wrote the fuckin book...) the group are at a loss for what to do until Mike manages to clamber over his own internal struggles and take control of the situation.
All these mind numbingly intriguing questions and a few more are answered as Grave Mistake plays out.
Chock full of plentiful green-screen antics and dodgy zombie FX is this really any different than what many before it (with a similar budget) have already offered? I’m pleased to announce it was well worthy of its ninety-minute running time as I quite liked it. Admittedly the acting was oftentimes not ‘perfect’ (my girlfriend refused to watch it on that basis alone which is quite alright as this merely meant more room for my snacks), several character interactions and the movies flow in several instances felt stilted but this merely added to loftier enjoyment if like me you are secure in your overall appreciation of the lower budget film arena.
