Storyline

Independent Zombie Film makers, Producer Mike Masters and Director David J. Francis, the team behind the commercially unsuccessful Zombie Night 1 and 2, have found the climate for Zombie movies has changed significantly after the "real" zombie invasion begins. Hedging on the fact that the Zombie mayhem that has taken a grip on the nation is only a temporary problem, the film makers realize that once normalcy has returned, demand for Zombie product (now outlawed) will be at an all time high. The filmmakers seize an opportunity to do something they were never able to before on their meager budgets, make a memorable zombie film. This time, however, through using real zombies, the film will have an authenticity and production value previously unattainable. They set about "bringing the gang back together" and assemble several key cast and crew members from their past productions (the ones that aren't already dead). With a full crew and a documentarian following them all the way, Masters ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The scene where Basil and Rebecca run away from a car and gasoline drums on fire, took 7 hours with more than 9 vehicle specialists and 5 special effects technicians to prepare for the explosion. The second and largest explosion in the sequence, although delayed by 2 seconds due to wind shift on location and cast not being beyond the "safe zone" created a fireball more than 300 feet high and was seen and heard more than 3 km from the film set.

Quotes

Sam Hall: This trilogy of movies, even for the years when we weren't working on it, somehow was sitting in the back of my brain like some kind of parasitic egg it was just slowly sucking out my ability to do anything. I blame this movie series for everything that's wrong with my life.
Stephen Papadimitriou: Well, what about the time you got laid?

Great zombie fun.
5 May 2010 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

What do you do when a zombie apocalypse destroys society and your way of life? If you're a self-centered shallow git like wannabe schlock filmmaker David J. Francis, (The director, playing himself) you get your self centered egomaniac friends to help you conclude the third part of your zombie franchise "Zombie Night", which were shot before the outbreak. Francis and co figure that they can get that gritty real life feel to their film, by utilizing real undead zombies. And if they happen to be temperamental, well the show must go on. The only problem is, what constitutes talent among the bunch could be written on the back of a postage stamp, with room to spare...

Reel Zombies is awesome fun, with funny naturalistic performances and some laugh out loud scenes as things go from bad to worse for the crew of incompetents.

One of the most original zombie films I've seen lately, it's proof positive that having next to nothing for a budget is no excuse to make a bad film.

A very entertaining hoot from start to finish it's well recommended for any zombie fan. 8/10
