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>

Wow. Just Wow.
13 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're thinking about watching "Redneck Zombies", let me first tell you that it's a very, very strange film. The acting is almost mind-bendingly bad, the gore meter is high, and it, of course, has a lot of redneck zombies. I recommend it, but wow. The main word I will use to describe this film is "Wow." So, the film starts out with a black soldier in a Jeep, bringing toxic waste to a different location. While he tries to give his dog a joint, the toxic waste falls off of his jeep. The soldier tries to retrieve it, but a redneck, Ferd Mertz (AKA Fatty, because he is one of the fattest people I have ever seen), holds a gun to the soldier's head, takes the waste and gives it to a bunch of rednecks, who think it is moonshine and start to sell it. The breakout redneck performance is Billy-Bob, who thinks he's stuck in a girl's body, and likes to be called Ellie May. Yeah. It's an odd film.

Miraculously, at the same time, there are a bunch of campers camping out very close to the rednecks. They include a fat chick, a black guy (who is probably the worst actor I have ever seen, more on that later), a gay guy who carries around hundreds of bottles of deodorant, and a guy who has absolutely NO lines, and just drinks liquor the entire time.

Soon, it is evident that the moonshine turns everyone who drinks it into flesh-eating REDNECK ZOMBIES!!! What follows is an over-the-top gorefest which is a bunch of fun, but it's probably not for everyone.

If you don't like Troma, you're not gonna like this. If you want Hollywood production values, you're NOT gonna like this. If you want Oscar-worthy performances, you're DEFINITELY not gonna like this. If you want some of the worst acting you've ever seen, if you like Troma, and if you want to watch a film that looks like it was made for $36.45, this is exactly what you're wanting.

It's supposed to be bad, and if you're wanting a good horror film, you'll be sorely disappointed. First off, the acting. This acting actually makes you sad. I don't know how, but it actually is SO bad, it makes you depressed. The black camper is most likely the WORST actor I have ever seen in my entire life, but then again, basically every performance in this movie are some of the worst I've ever seen. I don't know if they were trying to be the worst they can be, but if they did, they succeeded with flying colors.

The gore is actually pretty good for such a low-budget trash movie. There's some impressive kills, and it's obvious that the only thing they spent any money on was the gore. It's probably the high point of the movie.

I don't know what else to say about this. It's the definition of "so bad it's good". I was gonna give it an average 6 out of 10, but upon seeing how low the average score for the movie was, I decided I'll bump the score up 1 point, and give it an above average 7.

Watch out for the best parts; the gay soldier that comes to the rescue and happily runs into a mob of zombies ("Haven't you ever seen Deliverance?"), the black soldier (the only line he says to the gay soldier is "F%$# you.") and the death scene where the actor suddenly changes shirts halfway through his bloody death. It's just great.

7 out of 10 Go see it!
