Fun zombie trash.
16 August 2003 | by DarkReflectionSee all my reviews

Very fun (because it's stupid) zombie flick which may not have the style of Fulci's other work (considering he only directed 15 minutes of the film), but it's a very mindlessly entertaining, suspenseful, and fun ride. Has great action scenes, a none-too-serious atmosphere, and a stable script. Most of the direction (by noted hack Bruno Mattei) is pretty uninspired and trashy, but the film is great entertainment material. The zombies seem to go from intelligent and fast to slow and dumb at the drop of the dime! (I guess it depended on who was in the director's chair). It may be poorly made, but it's still great fun with some silly gore scenes. Check it out!
