What a great cult-horror film!!, 27 November 1999
Author: WritnGuy from New Jersey

I lowered all of my horror standards when I picked this up at Hollywood Video, knowing that it was a Troma production, though, for some reason, it said it was made by Full Moon Production, too. Even better, it was the new director's cut, so I knew I wasn't going to be spared.

And by the end, I must say, I was amazed.

The storyline is quite weird (but then again, this is Troma and/or Full Moon) but very cool. An army soldier is taking a bin of radioactive material through the redneck south, and loses it while driving. A redneck takes it, forcing the army guy to leave without it, and is then robbed of it by more hicks making a new alcohol still. Yet, the infamous Ellie May--if you've seen this, you know who it is--drops the barrel and the radioactive stuff goes into their still. They leave it, though, and are impressed with the new stuff they've made.

Meanwhile, a group of campers are out looking for their campsite ("And it has a pond to piss in!"), unaware of the carnage about to unfold.

I think we can all guess what happens next. The alcohol is distributed around town, turning everyone who drinks it into a flesheating zombie. No one's safe--especially not the campers, who find themselves attacked and killed off with no mercy, all leading up to the bloody climax.

This is truly a great movie. Especially for big fans of zombies and "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." (Like I am.) Fans of TCM are sure to notice the great spoofing, even in the end, with the gory showdown at the house between Lisa and the zombie family.

For anyone looking for a fun horror movie, this is it. It has plenty of gore, plenty of comedy, and plenty of fun for anyone. But if you're looking for the next "Silence of the Lambs," avoid this film at all costs. You will hate it. But anyone else, you'll love this like I do.
