The title of this shoestring Colorado-made weirdness refers to the strange phenomena which appear above the local "passion pit" just prior to the discovery of the "Muldoon Man" -- a horrific stone monster who, according to legend, once presided over Earth before the dawn of humanity. Shortly after local teens uncover the creature, his still-living legions of subterranean ghouls set to the task of bringing their god back to life, emerging from beneath the town cemetery and turning everyone in sight into puddles of goo. The zombies' efforts are stymied, however, by some intrepid (or less stupid) kids and a heavily armed police unit, though not before the Muldoon Man rumbles to life. This is essentially a string of gory set pieces involving rotting zombies and slimy flesh-melting effects linked together by dull stretches of hideous acting which bring the fun to a screeching halt.
