They are evil. They are dead. They are ravenous...
This was a super low-budget film, and the crew for the latter production phase included many current/recent film students from the NYC metro area. The crew mostly had a great time making it (in New Jersey) and may have gotten more enjoyment from the film than its audiences.
Before the film was completed, producers Samuel M. Sherman and Brett Piper sold the television rights to the film's re-edited rough cut. It was played on the USA Network's "Up All Night" series. The producers then used their sale money to complete the film.
