The Laughing Dead (1989) What's So Funny About (Priest's Love And Aztec Resurrection)
Things start out hilarious as we meet Father O'Sullivan (Tim Sullivan), a Catholic priest who has lost his faith in the aftermath of an affair with a nun ten years prior which caused her removal from the order and the birth of a son. These days, the priest keeps himself busy gearing up to lead an archeological field trip to Mexico, but one of his young charges Laurie (Premika Eaton) has thoughts of getting busy with him. Embarking on the trip, O'Sullivan is surprised to see Tessie (Wendy Webb), the defrocked nun, and their son Ivan booked as passengers. As the trip gets underway, it's fraught with bad omens from the start. Though running over a zombie is a bit more than bad omens. The group runs afoul of Dr. Um-tzek (S.P. Somtow), a crazed doctor of divinity who seeks to bring back the Aztec god of death and with it the prominence of the tribe. To do that, he exploits O'Sullivan's lack of faith, and the middling priest is soon overwhelmed by an ancient and angry Aztec spirit. In order to stop the Aztec apocalypse, Laurie and the rest of the group are forced to play Aztec basketball against zombies, but when that fails, only their own pleading to a forgotten Aztec god can save them.
City of the Living Dead. Somehow, despite the odds, it works.
