Death won’t stop a bullied teen from getting revenge in Johnny Gruesome (review) out today On Demand.
High school students Eric Carter and Johnny Grissom are best friends. Johnny is a heavy metal rebel nicknamed “Johnny Gruesome” by his classmates. When Johnny is murdered while on a drunken joyride, his killer persuades Eric and Johnny’s girlfriend to help him make the murder look like an accidental death but Johnny returns from the grave as a murderous, wisecracking zombie hell-bent on revenge.
