This may be the greatest movie ever made. Unearthed! Unstoppable! Undead! I could easily fit Unwatchable in there but then you’d be missing out on a lot of fun.
The Poster: (Or in this case the DVD cover)
This is a hot wet mess of bad design. It’s kind of like a lot of the local band flyers and cd covers and zines I used to see before everyone but me became a Photoshop wizard. The fonts are crappy, the photos are awful and the images are fake as hell. I love everything about it.
This is basically the Troll 2 of zombie movies. I DARE you to watch the first minute of this movie and not laugh, cry, roll your eyes or sneer in disgust. That’s all. Just the first minute. Here. Go ahead and watch it. Click here. I’ll wait till you get back.
So keep in mind what we are talking about here. This is a goofy, cheesy, homemade disaster and that’s bound to be a hell of a lot of fun. In University my friends and I made a bunch of movies like this, though at the time we were much more into vampires and vampire hunters. Most importantly we had a fun time making some movies.
EVERYTHING IN THE MOVIE! But a few to mention are . . .
– The acting is maybe the worst part. You’ve got a lot of what appear to be the filmmakers’ friends and family running around pretending they know how to act, (as apposed to acting.)
– Terrible special effects like mayonnaise and ketchup or something like that being poured over a guys head to make it look like his flesh is melting off.
– Bad video quality. (This is the early 90’s after all.)
– The plot: An underground nuclear power plant built over an Indian burial ground that causes the dead to rise up and start attacking people. With the proliferation of “built on an Indian burial ground” movies I’ve seen it’s hard to imagine this movie or that plot device ever being use. Although I don’t usually like to talk politics, with the way the U.S. seems to be going these days you would think the whole country was built on an Indian burial ground or something.
Oh. . . wait. . .
The awesome hangover your going to have after a night of drinking and laughing your ass off at this horrible movie with your friends.
