Storyline

In the back-woods of America live a very special kind of people. Friendly, decent, hard-working dirt farmers. When they accidentally drink a barrel of nuclear waste they turn into tobacco chewing, flesh eating, cannibal kinfolk from hell. Meanwhile, seven sophisticated city slickers on vacation get lost in the woods and encounter a nightmare world of these illiterate, and extremely insensitive, undead. While the tourists hikers use all their wits and courage to stay alive, more and more "down-home" types imbibe the nasty brew until Redneck Zombies are everywhere. What started as a scenic nature-hike turns into a bloodbath of dismemberment and cannibalism. Written by Wouter Nederlof <toksie@dds.nl>

Laughed till my sides hurt!
2 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was so much fun! Somehow, I never got to see this little gem in the 80's and only recently found it. It was just tons of campy fun. The songs, the rednecks, the dialogue, it was all funny. And the makeup on the zombies was great and there was tons of gore. I loved the parody scene of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre hitchhiker. And the Tobacco Man was just so kewl! This is a must see for anyone who loves horror parodies. It's a real classic.
