The Dead Can't Dance

About the Film

This zombie comedy/drama follows three Comanche men who discover they are somehow immune to a virus that’s killing everyone else and turning them into zombies with a craving for Native brains! As the men fight off the newly undead, they must put aside their differences to survive the night — and hope that their bloodline protects them.
