“A Cadaver Christmas” – plot Synopsis
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Lab, not a creature was stirring, except for the cadavers! When a biology professor’s Christmas Eve experiment goes horribly awry, it’s up to the university’s janitor to mop up the mess… But dealing with the undead may be a job even the best janitor can’t keep under control. After a quick beer at the local bar, the Janitor suddenly finds himself back at Mt. Peacemore University along with a bartender, a depressed drunk, a disgraced cop, his creepy perp and an overly ambitious student security guard.
Armed with nothing but oddly effective holiday decorations they must all work together to find the professor, re-kill the cadavers, and save the world… all by Christmas morning. And like every good Zombie Christmas movie, they also learn a little about friendship and the holiday spirit along the way.
This soon-to-be Christmas classic is a delightful blend of holiday gore and zombie cheer, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face when you’re not turning away in disgust- just like holidays with the family. A cross between “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Night of the Living Dead” – “A Cadaver Christmas” tells the story of an unlikely band of heroes given the task of saving the world from an army of living corpses that are quickly recruiting new members. The dead have been given the gift of life this Christmas, and it’s up to the janitor to take it back!
