A group of men head to a remote village to help one of their friends get over his divorce; when they get there, though, they discover that all the women have been infected with a virus that makes them man-hating cannibals.
A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
A boy declares his love for his girlfriend, only to die the same night. He is brought back to life by his mother as a flesh-craving zombie, who sires more teen undead while trying to control his, er, appetite for his beloved.
Behind this film's rather dumb sounding title lies a smart little post-9/11 zombie comedy in which outrageous splatter is combined with religious and political satire; it's a risky mix, but one that writer/director Kevin Hamedani successfully pulls off, his film effectively driving home such profound messages as being true to oneself and tolerance for all, as well as emphasising the importance of a clean head-shot!
Janette Armand plays US-born half-Iranian hottie Frida, who returns to her home town of Port Gamble just as a mysterious zombie plague takes hold of the small island community. As talk turns to the possibility of a terrorist attack, Frida becomes the subject of suspicion by small-minded islander Joe Miller (Russell Hodgkinson); meanwhile, gay couple Tom and Lance (Doug Fahl and Cooper Hopkins) seek sanctuary with a small group of churchgoers, only to find the fear and bigotry within almost as dangerous as the zombies outside.
In taking swipes at small-minded small-town Americans and knocking religion, this film will naturally have no shortage of critics, but with its traditional, slow-moving zombies, bickering survivors, wry sense of humour, and insightful social commentary rubbing shoulders with well executed graphic gore, I actually found Zombies of Mass Destruction to be rather reminiscent of George Romero's original ' ...of the Dead' zombie trilogywhich isn't a bad thing in my book.
