Maverick L.A.P.D. officer Roger Mortis (Treat Williams) is a good cop who will do anything to nail the bad guys. Even if he's got to die for it in this off-beat comedy thriller. Investigating some frightening goings-on, Mortis and his partner, Doug Bigelow (Joe Piscopo), pay a visit to Dante Laboratories. It is here that they discover the high-tech Resurrection Room churning out a weird band of recycled and indestructible criminals. And it is here that Mortis meets his untimely death. But, hey, if you can't beat them, join them! Police work is tough enough without having to tangle day after day with the same dead criminals; two can play this zombie game.
