This film is a hilarious mixture of Queer film, Silent film, Zombie film and Gangster film. Even its clumsiness feels like it is intended. 4 of Drag Kings turn into the zombies. Shot in Venice while the director enjoyed traveling in Italy, this film enchants audiences with a spontaneous directing and acting style. This film parodies typical horror films which juxtapose the homosexual to the \'monster\'. It eventually becomes a monster itself and makes fun of traditional horror films with the essence of Camp.
