Ratings Key

= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Chilling, The (1989)

...aka: Gamma 693

Directed by:
Deland Nuse
Jack A. Sunseri

A low-budget zombie movie featuring cult stars Linda (THE EXORCIST) Blair, Troy (used to be a teen idol) Donahue and Dan (Grizzly Adams) Haggerty might sound like surefire cult movie material, but this represents the worst in bargain basement entertainment; not even good for cheap, unintentional laughs. Linda plays a nurse who works at a cryogenics lab under Troy. Lightning causes the frozen cadavers (who look like they were dressed in sheets of Reynold's Wrap) to come to life, attack and do the usual cannibalistic zombie things. The performances, special effects and dialogue are all terrible. But hey! Cool box art, huh? It was filmed in Kansas City.
