Trivia

For the shot where Tom rides through the brick wall on his motorcycle, a wall was built of Styrofoam and painted to look like brick. When the stunt was first performed with the fake wall, the motorcycle shot through the structure but the rider was knocked off the cycle. See more »

Goofs

Even if Tom was indestructible after coming back from the dead, that wouldn't make his motorcycle indestructible or weaken the wall so he could crash through it. See more »

Quotes

Tom Latham: You can only die once, after that nothing and nobody can harm you.
Jane Pettibone: [excited] Oh, man! What are we waiting for?

a delightful, kitschy film
1 January 2003 | by eileenmchenrySee all my reviews

This is a movie you cannot watch without smiling due to its many kitschy, laughable elements. The only son of a wealthy old English family of frog-worshippers heads a bike gang called the Living Dead that discovers how to come back from the Great Beyond by wishing really, really hard. Hijinks ensue as the bikers kill themselves one by one and come back, ready to commit better mayhem than they ever could when alive because now they are indestructible. The story features unbelievably short skirts on all the girls; a hippy folk song about the glory of living and dying as a biker; young moms being terrorized by the Living Dead as they push prams in their go-go boots and hot pants; interior decor that inspired the makers of 'Austin Powers;' and arcane frog-worship ceremonies that ultimately lead to the undoing of the gang. Never a dull moment.
