A group of college students travels to a mysterious island to attend a rave, which is soon taken over by bloodthirsty zombies.
Five kinds of zombies are shown in the movie: undead crew members of the "San Christobal", other centuries-old zombies, people that were killed between 40 and a few years ago, and finally the ravers that were killed no more than 12 hours ago.
You created it all so you could become immortal. Why?
Castillo: To live forever!
(at around 52 mins) In the graveyard shoot-out, one girl shows up with 2 pistols in her hands. When she is about to fire her guns, she has a shotgun.
The opening credits play over video of the games, from both the arcade and Dreamcast versions, begining with the famous "You must stop Curien!" scene from the game!
In 2008, Lionsgate has released a Director's Cut version of the film on DVD. The film was made into a comedy with new music, alternative scenes, outtakes and several overlay-commentaries, which is the reason for the subtitle "Funny Version" on the DVD's front cover. This works remarkably well, thanks to self-ironic, exposing humor (continuity-issues, plot holes, sub-par acting performances etc. are mentioned; partly a little dumpy, e.g. when fart noises are faded in).
