While investigating the death of his twin brother, a special forces veteran, a sexy psychic, an evil succubus, her oafish boyfriend, two mysterious aliens and the Michigan Militia inadvertently join forces in a landfill of the living dead.
A two-part homage to (and sometimes parody of) European horror movies from 80s - especially Italian zombie movies. Made by fans of the genre, with most of the humor coming from the ridiculously sexist characters, this smart, funny and sometimes ridiculously gross horror-comedy has been a festival and convention favorite in the Midwest since it premiered in May 2009. Winner of "Best Sequel, Fan Film or Remake" from Horror Movie Central (2009 Birdie Award) and listed on Fangoria Magazine's DVD Chopping List for May 2010. Written by
When i take the time to write a review, I make it as honest as I can because that's what i look for when I'm reading reviews. Every film will have fans just like every film will have haters. The trick is to find the review from someone who enjoys the same type of films that you the reader does. Myself, I enjoy a vast variety of films. I think it's all a work of art. It's my church...my escape. if they taught school on television through movies...Id be a genius. I look at movies as a creative expression, especially in the independent market where big studio execs don't change every aspect of the script that made it good to begin with. Now, I like big popcorn movies as much as the next guy...but i also love low to no budget films as well. I like films that stand out from other films. Films that are not the same thing done over and over again. Now you know a little about my taste...let's get on with why your here...the review of IZM. What can I say about this film that hasn't already be said. It has everything. Action, Comedy, Drama, Gore, Horror, Spoofs, etc. Yes, it's made on a very low budget but don't let that stop you from checking this out. This film is, however, NOT for everybody. If your ONLY a fan of Big Budget Summer Blockbusters; Only like Major players in your movies; top of the line Million dollar f/x; No gore and just boring everyday Hollywood studio crap, then this film isn't for you. But, if you enjoy low budget independent films that are NOT boring; films that bring back memories of the youth; classic Italian spaghetti made zombie films; Then this movie is MOST definitely for you. I loved both parts I & II because I love seeing what a guy can do with no budget but nothing but love for the genre can come up with. Its the same reason why some people prefer college sports over professional, because it's more exciting because it's all about the love...same here. Part I sets up the story for part II which really takes off! I think what Thomas Berdinski and co. did here was utterly fantastic! I cant wait for Part III. Were taking the independent market back from the suits and it all starts here with IZM. I own the films and have watched them several times as each time I watch them, I notice something new. The films deserve a 10 but I'm saving that for IZM III and giving them something to strive for.
