Review: Twins Fiona and Fenton capture a ball of light after a terrible storm on their farm, and discover that the ball has powers to bring things back to life. Trying it out on ever larger dead things, they finally go for their former dog Scruffy -- only he comes back as a zombie dog. Debate ensues as to whether they should use these powers any more, but temptation wins out and they call up their grandpa. Now they have two zombies on their hands. How they deal with their father, the neighbor, and two zombies is humorous, interjected with some rather gross descriptions which will delight younger zombie fans.
