Elmer Winslow is a soldier on the run from the Union Army, and Luke Budd is a cowboy with a broken heart. When the two misfits rob the corrupt sheriff of an old west town, they have no idea that a plague of zombies is sweeping the country, or that Geronimo's sexy niece may be their only hope of survival.

Another in a Recent String of Zombie Comedies
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two men, forced to be partners due to an unusual set of circumstances (involving a sheriff and a prostitute), get captured by the niece of Geronimo, but end up on her side when the sheriff and his men acquire Geronimo's curse (making them a zombie-like creature). The men are now on the run, hoping to find either an escape or a cure.

One cannot comment on this film without comparing it to other zombie comedies. The closest is probably "The Quick and the Undead", which I haven't seen. The modern classic is "Shaun of the Dead", which may never be surpassed -- it certainly wasn't by this film. Another entry is "Dead and Deader", which doesn't seem to be popular amongst fans but I have to say is on par with this one -- DAD is heavier on the references (which I like) and UOA is heavier on the slapstick comedy. So, that might help you make your choice if you are going to watch one or the other.

The other deciding factor has to be Chris Kattan. He's less flamboyant here than usual ("Night at the Roxbury") but is still Kattan. If you have some sort of aversion to him, you may want to avoid this film. The other actors are all quite good, although I found it very difficult to believe that Geronimo's niece had any Native American blood in her. But I won't fault her for that.

The gore is decent. Early on the effects are cheesy, but they seem to get better as they go, or I just notice the poor quality less. Not sure which, but you'll get a good share of blood. The nudity, unfortunately, is limited almost entirely to the male bottom. I may be a regular subscriber to "Buns and Ammo" but sometimes I like to see women, too, which this film can't offer.

This film was an impulse rent (it was this or "Day Watch") and I don't regret it. Sure, the plot and acting and everything else is cheesy. But, this film served it's purpose: a light-hearted gore-splattered zombie comedy to watch with friends while drinking the cheapest beer known to man (Mountain Creek). Good times. I highly recommend you repeat the experience.
