Goes to show that the Italians can make terrible shot-on-video zombie films like everyone else
It's sad that things have come to this. Italy was a country responsible for the gory glory days of Lucio Fulci films like ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS and THE BEYOND, where the living dead could be guaranteed to look terrifying and chew copious gouts of blood from their victims in the process. These days the country is reduced to making the likes of EATERS, a shot-on-video piece of zombie trash indistinguishable from a hundred others made in the UK and USA.
The proud declaration of "A Uwe Boll Production" at the film's opening is a warning that this will be terrible and it truly is: there's no real script, just various characters doing evil stuff in a post-apocalyptic zombie world. Yet again the film-making style is to bleach away the colour leaving things looking gloomy and dull. The dialogue consists of various unlikeable characters bickering and shooting zombies, while some evil guys are doing experiments and there are even Nazis thrown into the mix. None of it sticks.
Other than some mild gore effects and not-bad make-up, EATERS is an entire waste of time as a zombie film. You'd be much better off watching decent, recent movies in this genre, like THE HORDE, REC, or WORLD WAR Z; at least they're doing something different, unlike EATERS.
