Don't excpect anything great, just a lot of gore and fun

There are a bunch of low budget zombie movies out there right now that
are a lot of fun and I try to see them all. I saw Zombie Farm in May or
June of 2007 in San Francisco at the Hole in the Head film festival. It
played with Automaton Transfusion and Driller back to back to back.
Automoaton is a kick ass zombie movie, too. Driller was a goofy, but
entertaining slasher-monster movie.
If you're not expecting the budget and acting of studio movies, then
all of these are worth seeing. Zombie Farm is way over the top with
gore and comedy. Sit back and enjoy the ride, but don't look too deep
and you won't be disappointed. I just saw that it's out on DVD now, so
it's worth watching. The acting is so over done that I'm not sure if
it's really good or really bad, but it's entertaining.
Automaton is pretty relentless. Again, it's low budget, so don't go in
expecting multi million dollar precision, set that aside and you'll
like it a lot. It's coming out on DVD in March. The mood and gore
overcome a mediocre story to make this movie well worth buying.
Driller is pretty polished and looks to have a much higher budget than
either of the others. The story line is fun and the movie has good
gore, but the acting is awful. Get past that, and I really liked this
one too. No word on the DVD yet.
I rate movies like this for what they are. In the low budget zombie
genre Zombie Farm and Automaton Transfusion are nines. If you compare
them to Oscar Winners, then they're more like fours. I give Driller a
six on the entertainment scale and a three on the Oscar scale.
The low budget invasion has landed and in the midst of a bunch of crap
there are some gems. None of these are the next Night of the Living
Dead, but they are all very enjoyable (and, actually, better quality
