B-movie fun
7 June 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

If you like so-bad-they're-good movies, I particularly recommend this flick. In the now familiar way that movies like Evil Dead 2 or Shawn of the Dead rip apart and yet stay lovingly true to the Horror tradition, this low budget film simultaneously embraces and laughs at its kitschy B-film incarnation. What does the B-movie have to offer us that the big production film doesn't? Unpredictability and edginess? Maybe. Complete lack of pretense or artistic value? Possibly closer. Remember when John Waters was more Pink Flamingos and less Cecil B. Demented? Initially it seems to be a rip off of Dawn of the Dead in its apocalyptic, stuck in a building together setting, but stick with it. It is full of more strange twists and surprises than it seems like one B-movie could hold, verging at times on the surreal. Even the lame special effects are so right for the film, that it's irrelevant to ask if they are a result of the low budget or just genius.
