A mother (Shirley L. Jones) reads two stories to her ghost son:

  • A big redneck family never has enough food on the table to feed all family members. So eventually, one of the sons picks up a gun and downsizes the family so there's food for all.
  • A man has the dead body of his brother stolen from the morgue, to at least in his death have the revenge on him he never had a chance to have in life ... but then the brother, now in a clown outfit, comes cack to life - and he's not very happy.

Back in the here and now, mother's abusive boyfriend Daryl (John W. Jones) shows up, and when he catches her reading to their dead son, he brutally beats her up, but somehow she gets her hands on a knife and stabs Daryl to death - but with his dying breath, he manages to call the police. When the cops arrive on her doorstep, she can't bring herself going with them and leaving her son alone, so she kills herself, to return as a ghost to be with her son forever ...

Tales of the Quadead Zone is basically a very low budget shot-on-video movie that has gained cult status for one reason or another. Now I can't help but saying, this is by no means a good movie, it's not very well-written, acted or directed, and it shows it was shot on a rather cheap camera - but at the same time, there are waaay worse shot-on-video movies out there, so the badness per se is no criteria. Rather the film has a certain "anything goes"-attitude to it that you don't often get in films of that ilk which are more often just crass than giving a ratfart about narrative originality. Now I'm not saying any of the stories in this film are great they just have this "what the fuck"-feel to them that makes them a tad irresistible ...
