Plot – Missy is the prettiest girl in school and she has a boyfriend. This does not stop Johnny Dingle from loving her, dreaming about her and persecuting her. Johnny even organizes a robbery in the shop where she works just so he can save her life. However, things go wrong and he gets killed. Johnny does not give up and returns to Earth as a zombie in order to follow his beloved. All this happens more or less in the first half hour of the film. The rest is a series of macabre jokes with our hero losing body parts, but not his hope.
All actors – Andrew Lowery, Traci Lind, Danny Zorn, Edward Herrmann, Mary Beth Hurt, Jay O. Sanders, Libby Villari, Matthew Fox, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Dooley, Austin Pendleton, David Womack Galewsky
