Undead or Alive: A Zombedy (2007)

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.

Storyline

Army deserter Elmer Winslow and local cowboy Luke Budd are on the run after robbing the evil Sheriff Claypool, stealing his money and fleeing the town, they find themselves with an angry posse on their trail. Joining Elmer and Luke is an Apache warrior, who's out to wreak vengeance on behalf of her decimated people; her plan is to attack the U.S. Army wherever she can find it, and she takes Elmer up on his offer to go with her to the nearest Army outpost he knows. Their plans become complicated when they discover that, as a result of the great Apache Geronimo's curse on the white man, all the people of the surrounding areas have turned into zombies.

Silly & mindless, but watchable

Synopsis: Army deserter Elmer Winslow (James Denton) and loser cowboy Luke Budd (Chris Kattan) flee town after robbing the evil Sheriff Claypool (Matt Besser). With the Sheriff's posse hot on their trail, Elmer and Luke (oddly) join up with Sue (Navi Rawat), the hot niece of Geronimo with the promise that they'll show her the way to the nearest Army Outpost. Sue wants to take vengeance upon those (the entire Army, apparently) who wronged her people and killed her uncle. Unfortunately for our small band of misfits. . . everyone in the area has turned into ravenous zombies.

Review: Since I went in thinking this was a real zombie western, I was surprised (and annoyed) to find a cheesy comedy. Or, 'Western Zombedy' as the director called it. Breaking down the 'horror-comedy' of the film. . . there's very little horror. Sure, there's a bit of gore and zombie violence, but most of it is done out of humour and, even still, not funny. The attempted comedy does get a couple laughs, mostly from Chris Kattan and his usual idiot behaviour and Brian Posehn as the first zombie. On the positive side, the soundtrack is pretty good. Not good, just pretty good. There were a couple tunes in there I'll actually seek out. . . but, the music doesn't make up for a badly acted, written, and directed film with a strange habit of forgetting exactly what time period they're in (which is one of the worst things a film can do for me). Overall, if you're willing to waste an hour and a half on some mindless crap and you have nothing at all else to watch, give it a look. . . but it's not worth much.

Final Rating: 4/10
