From the director of 1983's Strange Invaders comes this slightly offbeat New Zealand-lensed horror that manages several genuine moments of success.

Normal teenagers in a sleepy little Illinois town are being turned into zombie-like murderers as part of a bizarre experiment by deranged scientist Dr. Parkinson (Lewis).

The local sheriff John Brady (Murphy) begins an investigation into the recent slayings.

A 'strange' little film, with a few nice touches of humor and a bodycount that's understated.

Hands down, the weirdest scene has to be the choreographed party dance to the classic 1965 Lou Christie song Lightnin' Strikes!

With a score by the German electronica band Tangerine Dream.

Also known as both Dead Kids as well as Small Town Massacre.
