In the early 1970’s when everyone in America was worrying about what was going on in
Vietnam, the Unites States Army was secretly developing a way to reanimate the dead.
The hope was to have the dead fight instead of the living, but the experiments were shut
down when the reanimated corpses were unable to control their hunger for human flesh.
Thirty years later the army has decided to reopen the project. Grover City, because of its
remote location, would be the home of their main testing facilities. Without warning the
experiments go horribly wrong in Grover City and the DEAD are now on the rampage,
eating everyone in sight. With the town overtaken by Zombies, a group of High School
seniors take it upon themselves to fight back and find a cure for this deadly disease.
We posted up some info for Steven C. Miller's Automation Transfusion, which just so
happens to be a zombie picture! To the left are some pictures from the film. You can
