No brain, no pain, 24 November 2007
Author: unbrokenmetal from Hamburg, Germany

A flying saucer crashes on our planet and the radiation turns dead people into hungry zombies. Which is quite a problem for the gangsters who have to get rid of a corpse that just won't die again, or the hotel owner who wants to kill his former lover, since she blackmails him. "Zombie Self-Defense Force" is a gory, very gory comedy with a couple of good jokes, but in the end not professional enough especially in the camera and lights department to deserve the comparison with "Shaun of the Dead" in the tag-line. It never looks better than straight-to-video. I liked some characters, such as the killer baby with "Ghoulies" teeth (and the same anarchic attitude!), the hairdresser zombie who still has vague memories of her former job (similar to "Land of the Dead"), even the totally over-the-top "protect me, please" silly schoolgirl. "Zombie Self-Defense Force" demonstrates the Japanese zombie fighting style touch: when you have no more bullets, continue with the samurai sword! So, this is a cheap no-brainer, but if you don't expect more than that, fun to watch.
