Lame, Cheesy, Stupid…but also a Funny Trash, 13 November 2012
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The model Noemi (Bárbara Rey) questions her employer Lillian (Maria Perschy) about her roommate Kathy (Blanca Estrada) that is missing after receiving a call from Lillian, and she tells that she will go to the police. Lilian explains that Kathy is in an afloat boat in the Atlantic with another model participating of a publicity stunt, and she brings Noemi to meet Howard Tucker (Jack Taylor) and his henchman Sergio (Manuel de Blas) that have idealized the advertising campaign.

Kathy uses the radio to report that a ghost galleon without crew has arrived and Tucker sends a helicopter to bring the models back; however the pilot does not find them at the location. Tucker contacts Professor Grüber (Carlos Lemos) that studies the Sixteen Century galleon and they use a boat to reach the ghost vessel with Sergio, Lillian and Noemi. Soon Professor Gruber learns that the damned galleon is stranded in another dimension and the crew is composed of excommunicated Templar zombies. Now they try to leave the galleon and return to their own dimension. Will they succeed in their intent?

"El Buque Maldito", a.k.a "Horror of the Zombies", is a lame, cheesy, stupid…but also a funny trash movie. I have never seen the other movies of this (unknown) series but the terrible story has an awful screenplay. The miniature boats in the ocean and the models's motorboat stranded in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean are ridiculous. Noemi is an annoying character and I was glad when she was caught by the zombies. But the worst is certainly the dreadful dubbing in English. My vote is four.
