A group of people barricade themselves into a farmhouse to seek refuge from the hordes of flesh-crazy undead, created by misfiring military experiments. Filmed on a shoestring in Pittsburgh, real gore was supplied by a local butcher. Though it now seems dated, the rough and grainy qualities of the film only serve to make it more horribly convincing.
