Movie Review: The Lazarus Effect

WOW! I managed to write reviews two weeks in a row. Unfortunately I’ve got another boring one for ya, The Lazarus Effect. Here’s what it’s about: “THE LAZARUS EFFECT follows a group of researchers led by Frank and his fiancé Zoe who’ve achieved the unimaginable – bringing the dead back to life. After a successful, yet unsanctioned, trial on a newly deceased animal, the team is ready to unveil their breakthrough to the world. When … Read more

Movie Review: Kill Zombie (a.k.a Zombibi)

*SQUEAL* I found another zombie movie I loved! Here’s what Kill Zombie is about: “The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. Although much blood is flowing and many limbs chopped off, there is a lot to laugh at in this bizarre horror comedy.” Kill Zombie is a horror comedy movie, so of course it was a perfect choice to watch one afternoon I was feeling particularly low. … Read more

Movie Review: He Never Died

This week’s movie is He Never Died, and I enjoyed this one. Here’s what it’s about: “Jack’s in a rut. Depression and severe anti-social behavior has whittled down his existence to sleeping and watching television. Seeing the human race as little more than meat with a pulse, Jack has no interest to bond with anyone. There’s little purpose for him to make friends with someone he’d eventually eat or outlive by more than a millennia. … Read more

Movie Review: Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead

Another zombie movie this week. Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead has been sitting in my Netflix queue for nearly a year and I’m sorry I didn’t watch it sooner. Here’s what it’s about: “Barry is a talented mechanic and family man whose life is torn apart on the eve of a zombie apocalypse. His sister, Brooke, is kidnapped by a sinister team of gas-mask wearing soldiers & experimented on by a psychotic doctor. While Brooke … Read more

Movie Review: Stalled

FINALLY, another zombie movie for my ‘best of’ list. Stalled was awesome! Here’s what it’s about: “A janitor gets trapped in a women’s restroom and encounters an all-out attack by a horde of zombies.” This movie is getting trashed by people for poor acting and cinematography, and all around bad taste. Plus it’s choppy in spots with no real explanation for why everyone turned into zombies. So why did I love it so much? Dan … Read more

Movie Review: State of Emergency

I’m back on low-rated, zombie movies for a few weeks starting with State of Emergency. Here’s what it’s about: “Chaos consumes a small town when a chemical facility explodes releasing a deadly toxin. Moments after the leak, the town’s residents show signs of mutation, causing the military to quarantine the area leaving any survivors helpless and trapped inside. The story follows Jim, a young man isolated within the red zone, as he eludes flesh eating … Read more

TV Show Review: Ash vs. Evil Dead

I’ve been VERY antsy to review the new Starz series, Ash vs. Evil Dead, and this is the week it hit my schedule. YAY! Whether you’re familiar with the Evil Dead movies or not–and how could you not know about Bruce Campbell and his evil book–watch the trailer below to find out where this TV series starts 30 years later. I have to say I nearly wet my pants when I saw the advertisement for … Read more

Movie Review: Summer of Blood

This week’s review is Summer of Blood, and this review won’t be pretty. Here’s what it’s about: “Erik Sparrow is one of the lucky ones. He’s got a good job. He’s in a stable relationship. He lives in one of the greatest cities in the world. Does he deserve it? Probably not. He’s not too bright. He’s not very attractive. He’s not at all ambitious. He’s chubby and he’s always complaining. And when his girlfriend … Read more

Movie Review: Zombeavers

Last week I laughed my ass off watching Zombeavers. Here’s what it’s about: “A fun weekend turns into madness and horror for a bunch of groupies looking for fun in a beaver infested swamp.” Yeah, short description that about says it all. Same old tired plot, but when you watch this one, you won’t fall asleep. Trust me. You’ll be laughing to hard to nod off. Anyway, the zombie beavers steal the show at first. … Read more

Movie Review: Battle of the Damned

This week I watched another zombie movie with a decent budget. Battle of the Damned stars Dolph Lundgren and it was awesome! I’m thinking he and Danny Trejo should consider doing a zombie movie together. Anyway, here’s what it’s about: “When a deadly virus is accidentally released into a major city, its population is quarantined by military blockade. Desperate to rescue his daughter from inside, a wealthy industrialist hires a private military soldier Max Gatling … Read more

Movie Review: Dead Snow 2 – Red vs Dead

This week I have to give credit to a zombie movie with a decent budget. I saw Dead Snow 2, Red vs. Dead at the Mile High Horror Film Festival a couple weeks ago and am incredibly glad I was able to see this one on the big screen. If it weren’t for them adding a midnight viewing, we would have missed it. Anyway, here’s what it’s about: “If the worst day of your life … Read more

Movie Review: Germ

Last week I bashed a zombie film everyone loves; this week I defend one everyone seems to hate. I enjoyed Germ (aka Germ Z) so much that it’s been added to my ‘best of list’ to the right. Anyway, here’s what it’s about: “The military’s attempt to shoot down an orbiting satellite unleashes a space-borne epidemic on a remote, small town.” Pretty lame description for the movie, huh? And not a very original plot. What … Read more

Movie Review: Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead

HOLY CRAP! Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead is one of the craziest zombie movies out there…and I LOVED IT! Here’s what it’s about: “Wracked with guilt over the suicide of her sister Ai, who was tormented by high school bullies, pretty yong karate student Megumi accompanies a group of older friends on a trip into the woods: smart girl Aya, her druggie boyfriend Tak, big-boobed model Maki, and nerdy Naoi. Things start to go … Read more

Movie Review: Nazis at the Center of the Earth

Hurray! Hurray! I’m adding another ‘bad’ zombie movie to my favorites list. Nazis at the Center of the Earth was low budget, poorly acted and all around cheezy, but it was awesome! Here’s what it was about: When a team of scientists in Antarctica is abducted by masked men, they find themselves in a vast underground cavern populated by Nazis. Worse still, the escaped fanatics are developing ways to regenerate dead flesh, including that of … Read more

Movie Review: Osombie

Back to zombie movie reviews with Osombie. Here’s what it’s about: Dusty is on a mission to rescue her brother, a conspiracy theorist who’s convinced Osama bin Laden is still alive. But while in Afghanistan, she discovers that the terrorist has risen — and is building a zombie army to carry out his evil bidding. While I liked the idea of this movie, the first word that comes to mind is ‘boring’. I lost interest … Read more

Movie Review: Day of Darkness

C’mon people, Day of Darkness was awesome! It’s so memorable, it’s one of my all time favorite zombie movies. When a comet strikes Earth and kicks up a cloud of toxic dust, hundreds of humans join the ranks of the living dead. But there’s bad news for the survivors: The newly minted zombies are hell-bent on eradicating every last person from the planet. For the few human beings who remain, going head to head with … Read more

Movie Review: Day of the Dead

I’ve heard a lot of people complain about the 2008 version of Day of the Dead, so I went into the viewing with low expectations. Maybe that’s why I thought it wasn’t spectacular, but I enjoyed it. I think this film stands on it’s own though, and any reference to it being a remake is ridiculous. Maybe that’s one thing turning people off. I suppose my favorite part of the film is that it takes … Read more

Movie Review: Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill

Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill mixed together a western, a ghost story, revenge and zombies, and at least tried at a decent storyline. Here’s what it’s about: While traveling to a competition, a college debate team is abducted by a drug dealer who takes them to an abandoned town, which they quickly discover is the grave site of Bloody Bill Andersen, a Confederate soldier from the Civil War. What this movie mostly delivered … Read more

Movie Review: Raiders of the Damned

In Raiders of the Damned, yet another biological weapon has been unleashed on mankind and results in a zombie apocalypse. Only difference, the zombies don’t lose their intelligence and ability to organize. Here’s more on what it’s about. In the wake of a cataclysmic global war that saw widespread use of biochemical weaponry, flesh-eating zombies are overrunning the planet — and a helicopter transporting scientists who are working on an anti-zombie serum is humankind’s only … Read more

Movie Review: The Veil

Three words describe this film: HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE. Here’s what they say it’s about: Sent to investigate a small town infected by a manmade plague that’s turned the residents into ravenous flesh-eating zombies, an elite team of British commandos is forced to seek refuge in an empty house. As the ghouls try to find a way into the home, the soldiers must decide what to with one of their members who may be infected in … Read more
