A barrel of radioactive waste is lost out in the woods. Some demented rednecks find it and use it as part of their still. Everybody who drinks the liquor they produced turns into zombies.

In the backwoods of America live a very special kind of people: Friendly, decent, hard-working dirt farmers. When they accidentally drink a barrel of nuclear waste, they turn into tobacco-chewing, flesh eating, cannibal kinfolk from hell. Meanwhile, seven sophisticated city slickers on vacation get lost in the woods and encounter a nightmare world of these illiterate and extremely insensitive undead. While the tourists hikers use all their wits and courage to stay alive, more and more 'down-home' types imbibe the nasty brew until Redneck Zombies are everywhere. What started as a scenic nature hike turns into a bloodbath of dismemberment and cannibalism. Written by Wouter Nederlof <toksie@dds.nl>

Reminds me of A NASCAR race I once went to.......
16 January 2003 | by marleymom-2See all my reviews

Filmed in what looks like a cornfield in glorious Smyrna Delaware, Redneck Zombies delivers traditional Troma-fare. Somehow a vat of toxic waste makes it's connection with one rednecked family's moonshine. Before you know it......Zombie/Cannibal festival. While this is going down we have a subplot, i.e. potential victims/survivors added to the mix. A group of mismatched folks who look more like the local Smyrna drama club, than a bunch of hearty campers, start hiking through the danger zone. You can probably figure out what happens next. Being that this is Troma there will be lots of blood and guts. The movie, despite being extremely low budget, is generous with the gore. There are some faults to this movie though. A major one being the cheesy 80's computer graphics added in on occasion to create that "bad acid trip" effect. The creators also had a Texas Chainsaw fetish, as seen in the last few moments of the film. If you are into zombies, rednecks, hiking in cornfields, community theater, or moonshine. This may be the movie for you. It delivers what it promises plain and simple.
