Curse of the Cannibal Confederates (also known as The Curse of the Screaming Dead) is a 1982 horror film directed by Tony Malanowski and distributed by Troma Entertainment. The film follows six young friends who unwillingly raise the undead corpses of Confederate soldiers, resulting in what the video box promises as a "a finger-licking good fright film".
The film is a remake of sorts. It is based on a film that director Tony Malanowski had collaborated with "star" Steve "The Sandman" Sankuhler, known as Night of Horror. The former was also about dead Confederate soldiers tormenting a bunch of dirty hippies in a Winnebago.
In his book, All I Need to Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger, Troma president Lloyd Kaufman lists this among the five worst films in Troma's library. Amongst the films more notable flaws is the lack of a single Confederate uniform.
Mark Redfield, who played a minor role in the film, was one of the few crew members whose career actually continued after the film: he directed and starred in the critically successful 2006 film The Death of Poe. Ironically, in Redfield's first collaboration with Malanowski, Night of Horror, one of the characters constantly quotes Poe's poem, The Raven.
