Dance of the Dead is a 2008 American independent zombie comedy, directed by Gregg Bishop and written by Joe Ballarini. The film featured Jared Kusnitz, Greyson Chadwick, Chandler Darby, and Carissa Capobianco.
The plot revolves around the mysterious reanimation of the dead and the efforts of Jimmy, Lindsey, Stephen, Gwen and Kyle to save their local high school prom from attack.
A high school prom in Georgia is unexpectedly interrupted when a graveyard, next to a power plant, becomes the sudden source of resuscitated cadavers. As zombies march on the high school, a motley group of dateless teenage outcasts, among them Jimmy (Jared Kusnitz), Lindsey (Greyson Chadwick), Stephen (Chandler Darby) and Kyle (Justin Welborn), take on the zombies and save the day.
Although the premise of this movie is zombies attacking and killing teenagers on their prom, this is not your typical teen horror movie. This was just a well put together movie. I thought the direction, script, and acting were all very well executed…especially for a bunch of relative unknowns. Good humor, interesting dialogues and well put characters, Dance of the dead is a very good independent movie.
