Promoted as France's first gore film, Revenge of the Living Dead Girls (La revanche des mortes-vivantes) is a consumate shocker of horror and sex that as grown into a legend as being one of the sickest and most perverse of zombie films.

Is it so terrible that it could be looked upon as great?
I contemplated on that.
But I would say no. It is just a terrible movie. Terrible directing, terrible script, terrible acting, terrible... well, terrible anything.
Trying to make an Austrian exploitation movie was a very good idea. And if I'm not wrong Eddy Saller's "Geissel des Fleisches" starring the unforgettable Herbert Fux was interesting. Or at least that's what my memory tells me.
But "Schamlos" is just bad. Meaning that the filmmakers were not able to produce anything that strikes you visually. So this movie is not about exploitation. It is about the lack of talent to create exploitation.
And that is why this movie is so disappointing. It seems as if complete amateurs tried to make a feature film. I like trash and exploitation movies.
But, please, go for Italian, French, British or German trash films. And don't bother yourself by wasting time on watching this example of irrelevant amateurism.
Because quite obviously the Austrian wannabee trash director didn't even try to produce an Austrian trash movie. Otherwise Vienna or any other Austrian city should have been the setting. No, what you see are Viennese streets, but the movie pretends to take place somewhere in Germany.
Ridiculous. At the best.
