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>

Wholesome Family Entertainment Part 6: Hope I don't Go Blind
14 February 2009 | by TromafreakSee all my reviews

Just in case anyone was wondering, this is what true awsomeness looks like. Redneck Zombies is by far, my favorite shot-on-video, Return of the Living Dead/Texas Chainsaw Massacre ripoff-gore-fest in the entire Troma catalog. If anyone ever had fun making a movie, these guys did, which makes me wonder why Pericles didn't direct anything else for so long. I could sit here and type all day about the bottomless toilet of flaws that this film actually is, like most would, but, for the most part, all that was intentional, so now, all we have left is entertainment value, and if that was all that counted in the film industry, then Mr. Lewnes would have an Oscar to his credit. By far the greatest shot-on-video in existence, and I'll even go so far as to say that Redneck Zombies is by far the best non-Kaufman Troma epic available.

This steaming pile of Hixploitation magnificence begins with a soldier, in the middle of "God knows where", hauling a barrel of toxic waste, of course it falls off the vehicle while he's getting high. The barrel is, of course, intercepted by a 4,000 pound yokel, with a gun, no brain, and a whole lot of curiosity (played by the legendary Bucky Santini). With the soldier scared off, and the toxic waste now freshly stolen, from the portly yokel, by the Clemson clan, the town of thirteen rednecks can all now be let in on this curious lookin' liquid. For what? To drink? I doubt it, well, maybe...

With everyone now dead, and soon to be un-dead, these so-called rednecks (they're actually backwoods hicks) are going to be awfully hungry, after unwittingly poisoning themselves, going completely insane, and being dead, and all. Fortunately , there are seven campers, near by, who aren't all that bright, and that's a lot of dim-witted flesh to be had. What follows, definitely puts this in the top five goriest films of the 1980's. And just think, Redneck Zombies is actually funnier than it is gory. That is, If you're into ridiculous, backwards humor like someone I know.

You can't really call Redneck Zombies a failure, because this is exactly what they were going for, well, not a failure, exactly, more like "bad horror", then again, any damn fool can see that). These guys really take the cheesiness to legendary heights. I guess we could always do without the fact that it was shot on video, but if anything belongs on video, believe me, it's this. As ambitious of a production as it is, Redneck Zombies most definitely knows its place in the Exploitation world. Be sure to get the not rated version, otherwise, you'll be one unhappy camper. For the complete Redneck Zombies experience, check out the new Tromasterpiece Edition, it's swell!! If you don't hate over-the-top gore, sleazy, juvenile humor, bad acting, continuity issues, or movies made for less than $100 million, then you might not hate Redneck Zombies... oh, you probably will, what the hell do I know? 10/10
