A Great Episode.
8 April 2006 | by (Essex) – See all my reviews

Zombie Nightmare can only be described as the most bland, boring and unsatisfying horror movie ever. It's lack of suspense, dialogue, acting talent and decent camera work makes it the perfect target for MST3K. Starring Adam West from the original Batman, and Tia Carrere from Wayne's World, you might have thought that this movie may have had a fighting chance. Yet, sadly, no, this movie is one of the worst zombie movies ever made. For a zombie movie, it has an awfully big lack of zombies on screen. The funny segments include Secret Service agents Crow and Tom Servo protect Mike, the Mads use voodoo to inflict inexpensive evil on the world. The crew does some good voodoo, Servo runs over Crow with a car, the crew chills in a hot tub, Mike and Servo are Robin and Batman and the 'bots write to Adam West. Frank turns Dr. Forrester into a zombie. There are plenty of witty and hilarious jokes, quotes, one-liners and prods at the movies - ("And son, cover the nipples! The neighbours are complaining!") - and especially the fact about Adam West betraying Batman, and that he should go back to being Batman, etc. There is a thorough jostle at everything through the movie; the opening credits, the soundtrack - ("What, is this Deathmask featuring Olivia Newton John!") the bad acting, the poor lighting, the crazy sets ("Wow, this really IS a big garage!") Now, this is not one of the BEST mystery science theatre 3000 episode, but it's certainly entertaining and silly. And watch out for the voodoo lady who talks like a sheep!
