Synopsis by Cavett Binion
Completed in 1988 as The Dead Come Home and released years later in various video and cable-TV incarnations, this simplistic spin on the Evil Dead series (which was already pretty basic to begin with) places the standard cast of good-looking young fools in the eerie Leatherby estate, where they are systematically hunted down and cut to pieces by a hideously gnarled witch (played by a male actor in drag). The evil forces within the house soon revive the victims as unstoppable zombies, who then turn on the dwindling survivors. More of a situation than a plot, this premise doesn't get in the way of the film's reason for being: plentiful and creative gore effects from Ed French. Released to cable TV as Dead Dudes in the House.
