A pinnacle of cult cinema
22 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is even bashed by fans of cheesy old "B" horror films. This I don't understand. I loved every second of this movie. It took me a while to find a copy of Astro Zombies, but I found the DVD for $7.99, when it arrived, I immediately popped it in. I was not disappointed in the slightest. Its title may suggest that this film contains an onslaught of Romero-esque zombies from space, of course, that would've been a whole lot cooler than the few Astro-Zombies we see in this film, but they still delighted me. I found this film to have a preety cool premise (zombie like quasi-men who can be controlled and programmed), even though it contained all the stereotypical characters a film like this needs. Of course, that didn't bother me in the slightest. Neither did the pacing, I didn't find this film to bore me at all. Teenage Zombies would be a film with incredibly bad pacing. That is a boring movie. You need to keep in mind that Astro Zombies is a cheesy zombie movie from 1969, its not Oscar material. So, you all need to quit your whining and just accept that there is much worse out there. LONG LIVE TED MIKELS!
