Grade B Zero Budget Cheap Effects..But Still Kinda Fun
Verified purchase
This movies flaws are myriad. That being said, you have to like a movie where it is clear that a bunch of the townfolk served as extras.There are also some nods and jokes (intentional or not) that I found amusing. For example (spoiler warning) if you hark back to Return of the Living Dead, the idea was a chemical called 2 4 5 Trioxin, originally intended to spray on marijuana, apparently caused the dead to return to life. In this movie, a chemical called "Quadoxin" is being used to spray on kudzu (ok, you know it is going to mutate the kudzu and turn people into zombies, right?). The project is headed by a German and Japanese scientist (how...WW2'ish) with the Japanese doctor's name "Fukushima" (again, nothing could go wrong, could it?). Let me reiterate, this movie has MAJOR issues, but for all that I rather enjoyed it and, sadly, it is one of the better "bad" zombie movies you might find.

Almost worth watching

Another low-budget zombie movie. What can I say? After seeing scores of them that’s really all that’s left for a zombie fan and the only question is, “How bad is it?” The sad truth is that “Pretty bad but not horrible” is a fairly good rating for this type of fare. That’s what this is, but let me warn you that I must have been in an easy-going mood because I’m sure some people will find this film terrible.

The basics: This is mostly a zombie comedy. There are a few moments where it gets serious but not enough to make it a true zombie movie. It’s never scary or tense and you couldn’t care less who’s being killed. Despite gore and lots of deaths, it’s really an excuse for jokes and set-ups. The zombies are fast more-or-less and are the kind who mysteriously vanish when the cast gets together to talk something over.

The humor is basic and much of it is dumb. It’s set in Mississippi, so a lot of it is humor about the South. It was actually filmed in Mississippi using local actors and extras but somehow this doesn’t add anything. The acting is average and there’s no real sense of terror. They just say their lines. Only Escalante Lundy as the “Meat Pie King” seems like an authentic character.

The production team has some movie experience, so this film looks like a low-budget film and not like something someone shot on their phone. The cinematography and camera work are okay but no more than that. The script is uneven in mood. It starts out like it will be a horror-based zombie film but zig-zags all over the place after that. The dialog is poor and no one acts like real people would. Some plot developments get dropped or else were cut.

The film was directed by a director who is usually a special effects supervisor. Even then the effects aren’t that good, though mostly that’s because of the small budget. The direction is uneven and the pacing is off. Scenes get held too long to fit in a joke that isn’t that funny anyway.

The film is just barely above the kind I stop and delete from my Watchlist. But some effort went into this and on a slow night it might be worth watching.

Give It A Chance

This is the kind of ultra-low budget movie that makes me wish the filmmakers had more money to work with because it would be interesting to see what they could do with it, since they did such an admirable job with what resources they did have. This cast and crew are clearly more talented than can be commonly found working in this genre and at this level of funding. The acting is solid for the most part and the visual effects were better overall than I expected. Yes, there's some cheap-looking CGI, but I could overlook that. I was entertained and would probably watch this again.

Not even close to campy
Verified purchase
I decided to watch this movie based on the name. I though it would be campy, it's just a mess. It's supposed to be a comedy, which, had it been, I would have been laughing and I was not. I made it to the 3/4 point and couldn't take it anymore. When the guy who starts the ball rolling, who should be the first to die, is still alive while some many are dead around him. I start to wonder why him? In campy movies, that's usually the first to go and you go "YES!" In case someone doesn't figure out I like crazy comedies about hillbillies.

First and foremost, never steal drugs from a zombie.
Verified purchase
This standard zombie flick works to be a comedy and sometimes it’s almost funny. As the genre goes, it isn’t very inventive, relying on the typical and the expected. One zombie bites someone and then there’s two, three, the whole town… It’s up to a few survivors to join forces and escape the carnage. Naturally, they don’t all make it. The kill sequences, while plentiful, are all CGI and look animated. There’s also a pie rivalry to contend with, two scientists working in a hanger instead of a lab, and a triangle romance, of a sort. Eh. I was not impressed. But I didn’t hate it either. Eh. Again I say, eh.

Hokey at best
Verified purchase
The only reason this is not a "1" star movie is that I laughed myself silly in a few scenes. Mind you, these scenes were not supposed to be funny. Actual attempts at humor failed completely. There were no memorable performances and the script was utterly forgettable. CGI blood splatter, wounds, gunfire, explosions, fires and what not ranged from hokey to whatever. The action sequences were ridiculous. The emotional scenes were flat. Zombie make up was bad.

By all that is holy in zombie movies bypass this one
Verified purchase
I went into this movie wanting to really like it. But after 4 mins I knew this was not to be. The writing was terrible. Acting terrible. The only saving grace was finding out Montel Williams's daughter was in it. Yeah, she is a bad actor. The other saving grace are the 2 woman in the jean shorts, oh yeah

Don't torture yourself in watching this
Verified purchase
If I could rate it a negative 5 stars I would! This was torturous to watch. I had to stop because I couldn't take it anymore. The dumbest zombie movie I have ever watched. Cheap costumes, horrible acting, and dumb plot. The first zombie after a few minutes had mushrooms growing out of his head ----SERIOUSLY??? So dumb!! Also, the CGI was the WORST I have ever seen. Soooo bad all around. Don't waste your time.
