Horny male zombie, at your service!
25 February 2011 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

A very "different" zombie movie. I mean, this could have been a critically acclaimed one if not for the downpour of gay porn in every other scene!

The idea of a zombie with tender feelings & thoughts are all nice but all that eating of body parts and graphic gay sex almost made me puke. They could have been done more aesthetically. And too much talking! The female director(actor Katharina Klewinghaus) yaks, yaks & yaks to glory.

Nothing special to say about any of the cast. All are average.

Verdict: Soft-core gay porn movie. Dead or alive!
