Dead End (1985); A hoax?

This one is on Thrower's "Nightmare USA" list. Directed by Emerson Bixby. An unstable filmmaker risks his crew to shoot a documentary in a town overrun with flesh-eating zombies. Apart from two highly enthusiastic and suspicious reviews on IMDb I can't find any information about this independent US zombie flick. No VHS cover, no screens, nothing. Emerson Bixby does exist and he is a satirist of some sort. There are other films connected to Bixby and his personel including animal attack movies "Savannah" (1989) and "Viper" (1996) plus "Dimension" (1984) and "Eve" (1989) etc and they are all impossible to find!

I don't know what to think. It may be a hoax of gigantic proportions. Anyone seen "Dead End" or the other movies mentioned here?

Just received the message from Emerson Bixby.

"Dead End" was never released. I shot it on video with a budget of maybe fifteen hundred dollars, made several copies to send to small-time distribution companies, and nothing ever happened. None of the distributers responded, and the ten or so copies kept by myself and some of the crew are -- to my knowledge -- all that remains of "Dead End." My copy was lost in '87, and I have lost contact with pretty much everyone involved.

Not a hoax, dude, just a tiny little movie that's pretty much vanished. I've personally only met three people who have actually seen it. I've tried contacting the people who reviewed it several times, never heard back. I'd sell my spleen for a copy; of all the films I've done, this is one of the few I'm really proud of.

Re: "Viper" and "Dimension", I never worked on those. "Eve" happily vanished into who-cares-ville; crummy movie, don't bother looking for it.

Still I am quite skeptical.
