Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story takes place shortly after humanity has put down a recent zombie outbreak. The last two zombies left "undead" are looking for their place in the world, while one lonely zombie hunter's newfound fame and glory can't fill the hole in his heart left by the recent loss of his now undead love. The characters are forced to confront zombies, angry mobs, double-barreled shotguns, and an ever-dangerous thing called love, until fate brings them all face to face in an explosive finale. Can the zombies avoid a gruesome second death at the hands of chainsaw-wielding mob and find a place in which they can live in peace? Can the zombie hunter complete his quest and rid the world of zombies, or will his past relationship with his prey cause him to falter? Can any of them hit the high notes?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "R" is not about justice or redemption. You couldn't even call it a protest film about prison conditions, but it is very well made and persuasively acted.
Fresh: The helmers employ claustrophobic closeups to mirror the experience of an inmate arriving at the harsh institution and finding his options limited by more than just locked doors.
Fresh: Directors-screenwriters Lindholm and Noer are careful not to let the audience know more than their protagonist does, keeping them in the nerve-wrecking state of uncertainty and fear.
Fresh: Who knows better about prison life than someone who has experienced it firsthand?
Hysterically funny and witty non-stop action. Have to watch over and over to catch all the humorous lines. Absolute excellent music, production and acting.
Great Zombie Fun
Rigamortis: A Zombie Love Story is a movie musical about a zombie apocalypse yet it's also a love story. This film is a breath of fresh air in the zombie genre. The production values are very good and you can tell the actors are having a blast during filming. The music is funny, a little zany ("..flesh & chips and baby's feet..."), and also touching when it needs to be. It's mostly rock/pop style with some good horror stings. There are some memorable songs in it that are ringing in my head. The movie has already won two independent film awards. If you like funny, zany, and touching movies, then download it.
The music is amazing! Very cleaver lyrics and great vocals and acting. Each scene is a pleasure to watch. If you're looking for a musical with a twist, look no further. Rigamortis is a fun break from the norm.
