before we unveil our number one pick
people process grief in different ways
although most would probably avoid
resurrecting their loved ones as
deranged zombies Lewis is a doctor who
learns about a pet graveyard capable of
bringing animals back to life tragedy
strikes when gage Louis’s innocent young
son is run over by a truck unable to
accept what happened the doctor ignores
multiple warnings and revives gage by
burying his body in the cemetery the boy
returns as a malevolent zombie and with
the exception of his father butchers his
family at that point
Lewis has no choice but to kill gauge

for itself

concerned do you agree with our picks
