Interesting concept...poor execution
20 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Zombie Cop" is an obscure shot on video action horror film directed by the infamous J.R. Bookwalter (The dead next door).

A cop gets turned into a zombie by a Jamaican baddie (who keeps his ancient voodoo transcripts next to his playboys) and returns from the dead to serve justice.

The film is Ed Wood Jr. esque bad in terms of production values and special effects. In the opening scene there are no squibs, no muzzle gunfire, and the zombie makeup consists of the leads face being painted brown. The zombie cop eventually ends up looking more like the invisible man due to the fact that he covers his face with bandages. The acting is atrocious and the special effects are laughable. It's a rare flick to find and a painful film to sit through. If you enjoy Bookwalter's other stuff you might enjoy this one. Other wise, go watch Maniac Cop 2 instead.

Until next time horror hounds and fright fanatics, beware the darkness...
