Storyline

A group of six friends are out in the rural south on a deer hunt (even though one of the six is blind), when they start hearing strange noises coming from the woods. An investigation of the sounds leads them to an old Confederate graveyard, which suddenly begins sprouting Rebel zombies. Like the living dead in every other movie, these zombies are hungry for human flesh, and soon set to chowing down on the hapless hunters. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The sort of thing that gives crap movies a bad name.
23 December 2012 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I usually get very heated when my friends and colleagues question my taste in films: I passionately explain that unlike mainstream Hollywood movies, my preferred viewing—low-budget 'trash'—is unpredictable, unique, and challenging, and that even the most seemingly worthless of films can yield unexpected delights.

However, that is not the case with Curse of the Cannibal Confederates, a film so completely wretched that it is utterly indefensible.

Risible production values, acting so bad that it doesn't even qualify as amateurish, thoroughly obnoxious characters, atrocious sound, laughable effects, a terrible script: this one is a stinker on practically every level. Even some graphic scenes of gut-munching prove totally boring thanks to Tony Malanowski's lifeless direction.

Do yourself a favour: on this occasion, go for the big-budget blockbuster. Even the blandest of PG-13 CGI-fests has got to have more to offer than The Curse of the Cannibal Confederates.
