The Curse of the Screaming Dead (1982) (part 1 of 9)
The Cast of Characters:
Wyatt (Steve Sandkuhler). Hairy, unwashed redneck harmonica player. When he and his friends are attacked by zombies in the woods, he leads them into action, apparently being the only one of the group who’s seen Night of the Living Dead.
Mel (Christopher Gummer). Hairy, unwashed redneck kleptomaniac. He steals a diary from a graveyard that ticks off the zombies and prompts them to come after him and all of his friends in the first place. Eventually gets strangled by a zombie who’s totally showing off.
Bill (Jim Ball). Hairy, unwashed redneck teetotaler. Gives up drinking beer for his girlfriend Sarah, who doesn’t even put out for him afterwards. Luckily for Bill, zombies eventually put him out of his misery.
Sarah (Rebecca Bach). Unwashed redneck feminist. Bill’s girlfriend and a complete and utter killjoy. Always mouthing off about what “all you men” are like, until the zombies do the world a favor and eat her.
Lynn (Judy Dixon). Unwashed redneck Asian. Always PMSing. Hates Mel, hates Sarah, hates her sister Kiyomi, and hates life in general. And wouldn’t you know it, she’s one of the few characters to actually survive this movie. I think.
Blind Kiyomi (Mimi Ishikawa). From the name, I assumed this character is blind, because nothing in her performance really indicates this. Kiyomi’s Blind Girl powers allow her to hear and feel things others can’t, but thankfully, she just gets eaten anyway.
