    "I LAUGHED. I CRIED. I SCREAMED BLOODY MURDER."

    -Anita Placetohide Amityville Herald

    Only Konami could bring something so demented and sick to your Super NES and your Sega Genesis. Action! Adventure! A real scream! A must see!

    "55 levels of sheer terror. Not a dry seat in the house."

    -Washington Post Mortum

    "MORE FRIGHTENING THAN YOUR MOM AT A THRASH CONCERT.."

    -Slash Meehup - Rolling Tombstone

    Thrilling performances by two teenage stars who must save cheerleaders, babies and BBQ-happy neighbors from every monster that ever stalked the cineplex.

    "Somebody help me! Help me please!"

    - B.A. Goner - New York Times Up

    Fifty-five B-horror movies rolled into one are now slaying in your neighborhood. Scream to the sounds of "Hedgemaze Chainsaw Mayhem," "Mars Needs Cheerleaders" and "Weird Kids on the Block." Find your way through a "chopping" mall, a grocery store, mysterious monster islands, a haunted house and your own Zombie infested backyard. Run, swim and trampoline over hedges to escape hordes of Zombies, Chainsaw Maniacs, Mummies, Evil Dolls, Lizard Men, Blobs, Vampires, Giant Ants, Martians and more. Or take them out with your uzi squirt gun, exploding soda pop, bazookas and weed wackers. In a pinch use one of your collectible power-ups like secret potions and bobo clown decoys. Go it alone or as a Zombie squad of two. The game goes on and on and on. Run for your life! It just won't die!!
