Trivia

Sharon Farrell wrote in her book "Hollywood Princess from Sioux City, Iowa" that she was fired from this film after they discovered how "truly dangerous I could be on a motorcycle, especially when I had to wear an eye-patch and carry a whip. It was the eye-patch which really did me in. I started getting dizzy wearing the damn thing, and just thinking about leading my gang of chopper chicks, roaring up and down the road on our motorcycles made me queasy." See more »

If you see a sign that says "Zombietown"...
16 March 1999 | by Snap DadSee all my reviews

GET THE HELL OUTTA THERE!

IF you don't then you are either going to be killed by:

A. Lesbian bikers B. Flesh eating zombies C. A bus-load of blind orphans!

This movie says something that I've been saying for a long time, there simply aren't enough movies about a gang of gay bikers (bikettes?) who have to attack a load of Zombies who could possibly threaten a whole town, not to mention the busload of blind orphans.

If you liked TROMA'S other masterpieces such as TROMEO AND JULIET, or THE TOXIC AVENGER, this may be more to your tastes. Obviously, if you liked this movie then you should check out the other two that I just mentioned.

It's funny, if you can watch it in the right spirit.
