Trivia

The shoot out at the beginning of the film is very reminiscent of Australian bush-ranger Ned Kelly and his gang's last stand at Glenrowan. The armor, and the scene's presentation, are very similar to other film representations of Ned Kelly's tragic final defense. See more »

Goofs

When Sheriff Wydell stops Charlie and his sidekick in the road after they buy the chickens, Charlie gets out of his car and you can see microphone equipment sticking out from underneath his vest. See more »

Zombie gets it right!
7 August 2005 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie having seen 1000 Corpses which I thought was a great retro B style horror in the Texas Chainsaw massacre genre.

This movie FAR exceeded any expectation I had. Zombie NAILED it in this one. Classic Freeze frames, awesome soundtrack(used with purpose)-Just enough gore with out going over the top.. the essential random nudity shots that we B fans have come to expect. Suspenseful through-out.

I realize that what makes all of these components work:

A- This movie (Unlike 99% of all B Horros) is not predictable. You do not know what is going to happen next.

B- Zombie builds characters. You learn history and connections, and see things from their view.

C- Slight comedic aspect added.

Summary: MUST SEE, MUST OWN

in the words of my horror loving awe-struck friend "This is hands down the best B horror I have ever seen!"
