“Imagine watching your own funeral as a ghost and then the unthinkable happens, your undead body climbs out of your coffin and starts killing and eating your friends and family. Pharmaceutical Scientist, Donald Conlee faces this conundrum after he’s murdered and is administered his own “Awake”, super drug. His death was only the beginning of his problems. The Gatekeeper has given Donald a time limit to return his Zombie-self to the ground, or else his soul can never gain entrance into Heaven. To complicate matters, he finds out that his murderer is at the funeral and his girlfriend is in grave danger. How can a couple of disgruntle gravediggers and a hearse driver help Donald’s lost soul find the way? Or maybe the real question is how can the spirit world defeat the living dead?”
Also starring are David Gere (Almost Mercy, The Find), Andy Gates (The Blessed Ones, Garden Party Massacre), David Vescio (Hick, Wolf Mother), Mindy Robinson (King of the Nerds, Check Point), WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Diamond Dallas Page (Devil’s Rejects, Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror), and introducing Professional Wrestling Legend, The Universal Hearthrob, Austin Idol (current manager of National Wrestling Alliance World Heavyweight Champion, Nick Aldis).
