Storyline

Six high school buddies accidentally kill a drug pusher and dump his body in toxic waters. When the pusher returns as a zombie and goes on a killing spree, their only recourse is to dump the body of one of their own recently dead, and have him return as a "good" zombie to face off with the "bad" one. The producer's hook for the film was to feature music by groups the likes of The Fleshtones and Los Lobos. Written by M. Gumen

Gags & Gore to Go Around
13 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

"I Was a Teenage Zombie" is a classic low, low budget indie film. It has bad sound and cheesy film quality, but the characters are as good as any high school horror/comedy film I've ever seen, and the acting is better than some.

The screenplay could have been tighter. It dragged in places. They probably could have cut 15 or 20 minutes out of it without losing any of the fun. But it contains enough laugh-out-loud gags and gag-out-loud gore to make it well worth your while. It's a must-see for indie film buffs.

I happened on a audio cassette of the soundtrack long before I actually saw the movie.

It is the best movie soundtrack I've ever heard, bar none.

Anybody know where I can get a CD of it?
