Where to begin... Gore-Met Zombie Chef From Hell won me over from the start. When I first set my eyes upon this little oddity on the shelf of the nearest b-movie retailer I knew I had to own a copy. Come on, "Gore-Met?" It doesn't get much better than that in b-horror, folks. Now some skeptics might say that this purchase was $30 wasted. I say...but how many people own this movie, exactly? Ok so maybe the movie itself cost less than $30 to make...sue me. This puts the b...in b-movie. They're on a budget for a reason. And you know something, if this movie was given a budget of let's say...the latest Vin Diesel movie...I'd say they just threw movie ethics right out the window. Higher budget does not ensue higher quality, or higher means of entertainment.
So let's talk about this quality factor for a few lines... Gore-Met Zombie Chef From Hell, did not fare well on it's one and only review here on IMDB. And this is understandably so. The acting was poor, the script stiff, the music repetitive, the plot sketchy...cheesy gore. Well you say potato and I say...yam.
Some may see this as negative feedback. I see this as positive attributes. Witness the art of b-movie magic: -Piss-poor acting and little character development -Nearly non-existant plot if not far-fetched at the least -pointless nudity -Laughable kill scenes -Gore, lots of it. -Oh, and let's not forget lack of adequate funding.
B-movies are sort of dangerous territory. Upon viewing we have to tip-toe around, having to decipher what's safe-playing ground. Ultimately, b-movies are judged by the masses. Once a b-movie is out to an appreciative public...it's eventually raised to cult status and BAM it's a classic. But obviously the masses aren't always in attendance, ie: Gore-Met Zombie Chef From Hell. I somehow doubt that this movie would elevate to cult status, given the opportunity. But I can say that myself, among others were highly entertained. And while some cringe at the thought of having to swallow their pride long enough to enjoy a b-movie for what it's worth, I'd say that judging by the latest chart-toppers we've swallowed a lot worse.
