Surrounded by zombies - I love scary movies!!!
30 October 2014 | by (ukwitchcountry) – See all my reviews

This extremely fun short was a very simple and straightforward kind of romp that's all about two horror movie-looking nerds, one of whom happens to be a bit of a mad scientist type who has invented a rather miraculous machine that has the ability to conjure out of thin air real life versions of whatever monster happens to star in the tape or DVD put into the slot of the crazy contraption. Anyway the guys are fooling around with it, playing pot-shots with various kinds of zombies from very well know 'cult' horror movies for sport, and they download the Linea Quigly zombie from "Return of the Living Dead" but choose not to shoot her cos they find her hot, and then she's tied up and sitting on the couch with them, which was absurd and hilarious, and everything's going just swell until their bloodlust for zombie-slaying gets a little out of hand and the machine overloads and creates a whole mob of zombies at once, and right at the end when they think the dangerous game's finally over, some genuine horrors that they weren't expecting pick that moment to drop in! And who the hell needs a twenty minute story to go anywhere when you've got a plot-device as awesomely cool as that one? I thought it was a truly inspired idea for a short film, and they really do squeeze the maximum amount of retro coolness out of it. I loved the bit when the guys start debating what exactly it is that makes a zombie a zombie, pretty fun and interesting topic to me! I also loved all the makeup effects of the zombies and how each of them had the specific look and vibe of the movie or TV show they originated from. All the little musical nods to famous horror movies were also a lovely touch, if not a little obvious.. And the acting from the guys was kinda shaky, I found it pretty cheesy, but it certainly worked for the tone and they were the right kind of actors for this story. Another very minor annoyance was that there was a little too much emphasis on zombies, but that was thankfully remedied in the loony closing where I wasn't quite sure what the hell was going on, where none other than spider-head from "The Thing", the spider-gremlin from "Gremlins 2,, and Pumpkinhead all appear, and the way that was done I found quite clever and interesting as they were all somehow taken straight from scenes in their respective movies and incorporated into this. And the effect looked really good and convincing to me, it was like if you'd never seen any of those movies before you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference and that the weren't meant to be there. I found this short quite a unique blast to watch, and there was a lot of love for those scary movies that was put into it. And while there's no earthly reason why you should, trust me when I say "Monster Machine" is a little fantasy of horror movie buffs come to life, and one that deftly toggles between the heartfelt nostalgia and madcap splatter horror comedy, and both sides of the coin are equally enjoyable in my book. Loved it, it was a helluva lot of fun, and it made me wanna kick back and relive some of the old macabre classics... Bowser, ya pulled it off with great aplomb - bring on the next VHS!!!
