Trivia

Director Todd Sheets is not a fan of the film himself, he called it his "first but worst" but he had the heart to finish it. He went on record saying: "It took a year and a half because I was held hostage by an insane cameraman (who thought he was in charge and always wanted more money), a local Bar owner named Lonzo who was suppose to be funding the film but disappeared and a cast of well meaning local theater students who went away for the Holidays and some of them didn't come back!!! Some left because they were tired of being held up for 3 or 4 hours by the jerk cameraman every time we were suppose to shoot. I was left with 68% of a once good script and I finished it the only way I knew. It was my first film. It was NOT shot on VHS - but on 3/4 inch video and Betacam like the TV stations of the time used. It was a horrible experience and I almost never made another film." See more »

Zombie '89: Extreme Hostility
2 September 2009 | by TromafreakSee all my reviews

Here's one for the record books, A movie that'll make you wonder exactly how bad does this Z-grade Horror stuff get. A movie that makes Hell Of The Living Dead look big-budget, a movie that makes Redneck Zombies look... well, at least a little better. You have officially reached the bottom of the barrel of the Living-Dead sub-genre. It's not too late to turn back.

Yeah, Zombie Rampage was definitely shot on video by a fellow named Todd Sheets. If Mr. Sheets were actually known for something, it would be the worlds worst Zombie movie maker. This particular one, possibly being the worst of the worst. This disasterpiece starts out and ends up as incoherent as it could possibly be, which is fine considering the paper-thin plot. Two rival gangs and one's plot to raise its fallen members from the dead. The other gang, believing they'll control them if they raise them first, perform the ritual instead. The zombies, of course, are controlled by no one, and are somehow up and around long before any rituals take place, which is kinda weird, come to think of it. And a whole lotta sound issues, camera issues, continuity issues, screwed-up lines, and not to mention, a rather humorous amount of angry yelling and screaming. With all that said, Zombie Rampage actually turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for, which honestly makes me question my own state of mind.

Todd Sheets once said that he considers Zombie Bloodbath, a movie he made four years later, to be his first film, which is completely mind-boggling if you've seen them both, I'll just leave it at that. Sheets may not put it on his resume, but Zombie Rampage, at the very least, is a movie. While even most bad Horror movie lovers might despise this misunderstood garbage, there are redeeming qualities to be had. For example, it's not every day you get to see a baby ripped apart by zombies, as fake-looking as it may have been. And don't even get me started on the gore, there's more than enough to go around. Ultimately, Zombie Rampage is a heart-warming homage to anything from Lucio Fulci's Zombie to Romero's Night Of The Living Dead, Sheets even steals music from them, among others, which is just sad. I'd love to say it's not as bad as it sounds, or as it looks, but the truth is, it is so much worse. Reserved for the ones with zero standards, unlimited patience, and a blinding passion for Living-dead cinema. And remember, regardless of what Todd Sheet's tells you, Zombie Rampage is definitely a movie, and nobody can take that away from it. 7/10
