Movie Reviews: Housebound

What took me so long to watch Housebound. Here’s what it’s about: “Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam’s superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from … Read more

Movie Review: Navy Seals vs. Zombies

Try not to fall asleep during this week’s review of Navy Seals vs. Zombies Here’s what it’s about: “A team of highly skilled Navy SEALS find themselves embarking on the battle of their lives when they come face-to-face with the undead. After a deadly outbreak occurs in New Orleans, the SEALS must fight for their lives, and the city, against an army of zombies.” This movie is appropriately rated lower than 1 star out of … Read more

Movie Review: Mimesis

YAY! A zombie movie review this week. Well, Mimesis is kind of a zombie movie. Here’s what it’s about: “A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.” The ‘classic horror film’ is Night of the Living Dead. What’s hilarious is that the description for the movie is a spoiler. It’s better to go into this movie having not read that … Read more

Movie Review: Stitches

I’ve got a good one for you this week, although it’s not a zombie movie. Stitches had me laughing out loud, and here’s what it’s about: “The clumsy and unfunny clown Richard “Stitches” Grindle goes to the birthday party of little Tom and the boy and his friends play a prank with Stitches, tying his shoelaces. Stitches slips, falls and dies. Six years later, Tom gives a birthday party for his friends at home and … Read more

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: 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
