Unwatchable Movie Challenge #4

Photo from IMDB.com
Firstly, this is not a return. I just watched this last night and I had to feature this movie. No words can describe it, and I will be giving spoilers. If you don't want to hear about how this movie ends and want to see it for yourself, I'm so sorry, and you should leave now.

This movie is bad. Dance of the Dead takes place in a smaller town and the big buzz is about the prom. You follow around a mixed up group of a backyard wrestler, the sci-fi club, a cheerleader, the vice president of the student council, and the "main" character who doesn't really fit into a group.

The night of the prom the dead rise from the grave, or in some instances, pop from the grave. There is a scene where the sci fi club took a trip out to the cemetery. The encounter a zombie and run for there life. All around them, the dead are rising. You get a shot of running along side them, and zombies are getting launched out of the graves and hit the ground running alongside the members. I can't find a word for how laughable it was.

The other highlight in this film was the backyard wrestler and the main character fight a little mob of zombies. This main character is godlike, because he can stab zombies with a BASEBALL BAT! Not only stab them, but slice them in half with it. I'll spare you the details of the zombie make-out scene (and yes, two zombies were making out).

The splinter groups all find each other, one group discovers that the zombies like music. The zombies will not attack as long as music is playing, which is very new to me. Because of this, all the zombies have found their way to the prom. They decide to destroy the school with all the zombies inside with the help of a crazy gym teacher.

Dance of the Dead ends with the possibility of a sequel as well. They determined that it was the power plant that had started all of this. The remaining members of the group decide to drive off into the night to destroy it. So keep your eyes open for Power Plant of the Dead.

So that is all. Unfortunately this movie is not available streaming on Netflix. The station I saw it on was called Chiller and this week is zombie week. But now that you know, there is no need. The scariest thing about this movie is that it was made.

Choices and Effects

Everyday we are presented with choices. Most of the time, the choice is clear. Yes, I'll go to work or school today. No, I don't need to get gas today. Sure I'll donate a dollar at the checkout. I often wonder about the decisions we make that alters our life though.

When I was in middle school, I wanted to learn an instrument. I was personally dead set on violin. It ended up that we had a trumpet from when my dad and uncle were in band. I gave up my cause pretty early and took up the trumpet. From what I remember of that time, I hated it. I quit without even giving it a year.

What if I had pursued my interest and held out for a violin though? Would my life had been changed that drastically? Being so early in life, I think so. The friends I had would of changed to band and orchestra friends. I might of tried harder to keep up with friends in grades. This would of most likely led to college right after high school. Maybe my love of music would of come earlier in life and I would be following my dreams of performing or being a part of a major orchestra.

The choices you make shape your life. I don't feel you are stuck on a path that you don't want to walk. The only force that keeps you on that path is yourself. Make yourself wander into the forest of uncertainty every once in awhile. Break your routine to see how it feels and what comes of it. Introduce yourself to that stranger because they might be that secret millionaire.

And this is what happens when I think to myself "I wonder how different my life would of been if I played the violin?" Do you ever think "what if" and what is that moment you feel would of completely changed your life?

You've caught him

   The robber makes it out the door and is pursued by land and air. He makes it to edge of the forest before the Golden Eagle makes him stumble and drop a few items. He can't speed up fast enough to get away and is shortly caught.
   "Okay, okay. I surrender." He takes out a pouch and begins to take out item after pouch after item out, placing them on the ground. You reclaim your stuff as he begins to complain aloud. "I wouldn't of needed to steal from you if I wasn't stolen from in the first place by that scoundrel." The townsfolk walk back to town ignoring him. You brave adventurers know a hook when you hear one, so you stay.
   "King Felix is nothing but a fiend. This isn't the first town he has 'saved.' I come from a town a few days travel south from here, Westerdale. Felix saw that we were given no attention and proclaimed himself savior and king of that town as well. The first year was great, and he influenced a festival same as this one. When everyone in Westerdale was at the statue unveiling, he robbed us all blind."
   But that doesn't explain why he was stealing from all of you. "I was trying to stop the ceremony. If people were worried their belongings were stolen, maybe they wouldn't attend the unveiling here." That seems kind of shady still. "If that failed, I was going to catch him in the act. Look, help me catch him in the act so I can show you what a scoundrel he is. If I'm lying, you may do whatever you wish to me. Tomorrow is the ceremony, so we must act quickly."

Are you worried more about Felix or your new "friend" lying? How are you going to catch one or the other? Can't wait to hear the creative traps you come up with.
