A watchable slice of warped low budget zombie fun., 29 June 2008
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

Low-budget zombie films: almost anyone can make one, and the majority of them are crap. Technically, The Stink of Flesh ain't much better than your average amateur walking dead dreck, but thanks to its very unpredictable script, which steers well clear of Romero rip-off territory, it manages to be entertaining stuff for those who like their movies more than a little twisted.

Kurly Tlapoyawa plays a hard-nut survivor of a zombie holocaust named Matool, who likes to deal with the undead up-close-'n'-personal by bashing huge nails into their skulls with a lump hammer (obviously, he thinks that guns are for wimps!).

After narrowly escaping an attack by the undead, Matool is kidnapped by a couple of swingers, Nathan and Dexy, who have found that finding healthy (ie., living) participants for their sex games more difficult since the zombie outbreak. Fortunately, Matool has no problems with their alternative lifestyle, and is all too happy to service Dexy (as Nate watches on), and is only slightly put off his stroke when Sassy, Dexy's sister (who has a parasitic twin named Dorothy living in her stomach), wanders in and slaps his ass with a big stick!

A now satisfied Dexy is even more delighted when a trio of soldiers (one of whom has been wounded by a zombie) pitch up at the house: the two uninjured grunts join in the fun with the insatiable gal, which results in a slightly miffed Nathan making trips to an outbuilding, where he keeps a hot nekkid dead chick (who we later discover was killed by Nathan) chained up for his pleasure. Even Sassy gets a bit of loving when one of the soldiers also takes a shine to her (the guy's not fussy—he even even gives some attention to Dorothy).

However, when Sepulveda, the injured member of the group, eventually 'turns', Sassy is accidentally shot, and Nathan is attacked by his sex-zombie (who has been deliberately released by a mute boy who also lives with the swingers), the fun ends and the killing starts.

Whilst The Stink of Flesh admittedly features some truly awful acting, grade-Z effects and gore (a large proportion of the zombies are made-up with face-paint), and dreadful production values, its deliciously warped sense of fun easily helps one to overlook these drawbacks. Let's face it—any film with a zombie shagging scene and an abdominal mutant can't be all bad.

My only real gripes are that the film would've benefited greatly from a much sexier actress playing the role of Dexy, rather than chunky 'Kathy Bates-alike' Diva (the girl who dies early on in the film would've been a much better choice), and a slightly less abrupt ending.

I rate this unusual little horror flick 6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
