A mishmash of stuff from better movies, resulting in a real hoot
14 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A downside to being a film buff is that sometimes you have to wallow through crap to get to the good stuff. There is certainly no shortage of amazing films, but the same can also be said for the bad ones. The especially bad ones were obviously made by people who have no idea what it takes to make a good quality film. But every dark cloud does have a silver lining right? Some bad movies are so bad that they're kind of fun. The late director Bruno Mattei was someone bad movie lovers could usually count on to deliver a great piece of trash. The one he's probably most known for is his 1980 'Dawn of the Dead' wannabe 'Hell of the Living Dead,' a film that lacks what makes a film competent, but excels in being good fun. Until the year of his passing he continued to make films that imitated and sometimes blatantly ripped off other much better films. This hard to find effort is no different, and is one of the most hilariously bad guilty pleasure kind of movies to come from him.

Pros: Unintentionally comical. Moves at a quick pace from start to end. Some beautiful, lush scenery. Mattei does get some good shots. Has camp value a plenty. A real piece of eye candy due to the colored lighting and atmosphere of some scenes. Pretty ambitious for such a low budget production.

Cons: Messy writing. Terrible acting. Painfully bad dialogue. Some huge plot holes. Looks like it was shot with a home video camera. Bad, often over the top score. Rips off ideas from other, better movies like 'The Mummy,' the first two 'Indiana Jones' films, and even 'The Exorcist.' Also steal footage from the first two 'Indiana Jones' films and 'Army of Darkness.' Shoddy make-up effects. Cheap sets that look like they're from a carnival ride. Some choppy editing.

Final thoughts: Whoa nelly do we have a turkey here! This film proves that Mattei never got better after all his experience and you know what, who cares? Sure his films will never and should never be analyzed or looked at as misunderstood gems, but like some of his other works this one is a must see for people in the mood for around 90 minutes of unintentionally hilarious cinema.

My rating: 2.5/5 (So-bad-it's-good rating) 1/5 (Serious rating)
