Storyline

In the back-woods 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>

It's supposed to be bad people!!
17 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

For some of the people that posted about how bad and stupid this movie was: actually, i'm stumped. I don't know what to tell you. The intention of the producers of Redneck Zombies was to make a really bad movie. In fact, if anyone has the Troma DVD, they should watch the short interview with director, Pericles Lewnes. He basically says they wanted to make a really awful gory horror movie. Knowing that movies shot on video automatically come off as being cheesy, they went all the way with the bad acting, bad jokes, bad special effects, etc. And that is why this movie has become one of the gems of modern day b-movie gore flicks. If this was shot on film, it wouldn't be the same.

I wouldn't laugh in the same way. If the cast included well trained actors- once again, I wouldn't laugh in the way that I do. This movie is the epitemy of being "so bad that it is good",

So for all of you wannabe Siskel and Eberts out there, keep on renting Scream 1-100, I know What You Did Last Spring (or was it Summer?), and any other modern day over produced horror flick with a soundtrack by Creed. I'll keep watching (and loving) all the trash that goes straight to DVD. Of course you can't rent any of the wonderful sleazy trash flicks at Blockbuster or Hollywood, so I am forced to purchase these fine films at conventions and off the internet. Thank God for the internet.

I will say I was happily impressed with the big budget Dawn of the Dead for the most part.
