and I thought I knew bad
2 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give this film a resounding 1 out of 10 because ZERO is not an option. I am a junkie for poorly-executed cinematic catastrophes, but this film made me cringe and shudder for 90 minutes. I thought that Open Water was the worst film I had ever spent money on to watch, but after I bought a copy of Night of the Zombies II from the Better Than a Pawnshop I quickly changed my tune. This movie doesn't make any sense. A painfully obvious example of its complete nonsensical nature is its title; Night of the Zombies TWO, which does NOT happen to be the sequel to Night of the Zombies ONE. "CIA Headquarters" in "Langley" looks more like a Best Western in Gary, Indiana. There are Nazi zombies, and some bonus nudity, two less-than-adequate consolation rewards for the poor saps like myself who had to suffer through this feature. But try understanding ANYTHING that's happening in this movie, and watch your head spin.

I see this film as an instrument for building character. You will never get bored driving through Iowa or sitting through Econ 101 as long as you live if you can manage to enjoy this movie sober.
