Storyline

The Sprawl, a seedy underworld of exploitation, violence, and zombies. In this maze of alleyways and speakeasies life is cheap, drugs are cheaper, and surviving to a ripe old age is an urban myth. At the center of it all is Johnny Sunshine, a porn star and killer for hire. She stalks the night like a tempest of sex and violence, much to the pleasure and profit of her producer, Max, and his entertainment empire. As the body count rises, Johnny becomes a victim of her own success. In secret a plot is hatched to orchestrate her downfall, and capture it all on camera to create the greatest snuff film ever made.

Even if you actually like torture porn, avoid this...
16 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't go into this quite knowing what to expect. I was told more or less that it was a zombie movie. There are zombies in it....well parts of it. The parts that aren't soft-core porn mixed with bizarre torture scenes.

The story focuses on its nihilistic protagonist, Johnny Sunshine. A porn star/zombie slayer. Performed at times adequately and other times so poorly you cringe by a relatively unknown actress, who, like her performance, varies from easy on the eyes to high school goth looking from scene to scene. It really is quite a mystery but I'm certain at this point it was all the same actress. The action sequences are just too horrible to be credited to any professional stunt person or martial artist. In this world zombies roam the streets, attacking people and such. You know the drill....and a new craze called "zombie porn" is gaining momentum. This story is bizarre and convoluted and if you actually take the time to look past the bad acting, horrible direction and god awful camera shots towards the story, you'll want to punish yourself by putting your face through a plate glass window for having been so utterly foolish. This is, with a hundred percent honesty, at least in the top five of the worst movies I have ever seen in my life. It could have actually been somewhat interesting, small budget and all had they abandoned the porn angle and maybe gone with just the main character being a zombie slayer. The torture/sex scenes are painful to watch, and not because of the torture.

Even hardcore zombie fans should avoid this one.
