Not an average clinker
5 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

One of those low-budget cheapies that seem to be so popular in the States and the kind of title that you may just pass by now matter how grisly the sleeve is. However, Flesh Freaks is not an average clinker and is an entertaining exercise in well-executed splatter. For blood-hounds we have skull impalements , scalpel slashings, ripped out organs, scissor stabbings, crowbars, machetes, eyes pushed out, etc., a hefty mix I'm sure you will agree. The zombies themselves are a mixture of make-up and rather cool puppetry which is quite effectively blended but a little too hidden for my eyes by overly dark videography. However, there is a cracking shot of zombies staggering down a corridor that is very reminiscent of Fulci's The Beyond and gives new meaning to the term "lights out"! I was also impressed by the closing shots of parasites bursting from zombiefied heads which was very atmospheric. Conall Pendergast not only directs but is also credited as the writer, editor, co-spfx artist and co-producer - a definite talent to watch as they say.
