By Review by Marc Lourdes OH, how I lurrrrve B-grade films! Especially B-grade horror shows. And most especially, B-grade zombie horror flicks. And, let me tell you that Flight Of The Living Dead fits the bill on all three counts. It's cheesiness, bloodiness and unintentional hilarity all make it just one of those incredibly bad films that any self-respecting fan of bad flicks would just love to sink his teeth into.

By RUSH, Paul Paul Rush finds sustenance deep in the twilight zone. -------------------- I'M on a ghost train being blasted by compressed air, showered with sparks and shouted at by soulless, eyeless ghouls who clutch at my throat with skinless fingers. All I want to do is try a local licensed restaurant theatre that was recommended by a friend. This diabolical train is the only means of entering the restaurant, which is positively weird.
