Hoodoo trouble
22 November 2006 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

During the first minutes you think that this movie is terrible, and Gould must have gotten himself into something really bad- but from the moment on he becomes a zombie it's certainly one of the funniest flicks in history, IMHO. I would give him a 7 to 8 out of 10, but it's impossible to rate such a film with anything else than "awful" or "excellent". You will hate it, if you expect blood and gore. You will hate it, if you expect realism or a reasonable storyline. You will hate it, if you hate Voodoo/hoodoo-clichés or Eliott Gould stumbling around and uttering silly sounds.

But if you don't hate it, you'll love it. Just as I do.
