Spike and Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation favorite Bill Plympton ("25 Ways to Quit Smoking," I Married a Strange Person!, Mutant Aliens) contributes this feature-length musical/horror/comedy about a nerdy 1950s teen named Spud, who steals Cherri the head cheerleader from the high school quarterback, only to perish in a freak accident (or was it?) on Lover's Lane. What's left for a couple of dead teens to do but return from the grave and wreak bloody vengeance on prom night? Top-notch voice cast includes Sarah Silverman, David Carradine, Keith Carradine, Beverly D'Angelo, Craig Bierko, Ed Begley Jr., Dermot Mulroney, Justin Long, Martha Plimpton and Matt Groening. As a bonus, the film is teamed up with Plympton's Academy Award-nominated short "Guard Dog." 77 minutes
