Julie Walker (Mindy – now more often known as Melinda – Clarke) is killed in a motorbike accident. Her boyfriend brings her back with some zombie gas from his fathers military research base but the results are not quite as he desired. Julie has a ravenous appetite and only pain helps to keep it at bay: throughout the movie she keeps adding what can best be described as ‘body-jewellery’.
As Maltin says its ‘a tragic love story with imaginative effects’. Its also a laugh.
Steve Johnson, Tim Ralston, Kevin Brennan, Christopher Nelson and Wayne Toth were all credited for special effects makeup on this movie.
