With his zombie army, will kidnap five recently deflowered girls, necessary to awaken the beast Jocántaro, half crab, half octopus. One of the girls, Danuta, is the girlfriend of a catholic surfer, Jess, who, with his gang composed by a priest, a nun, a karateka and a yuppie, will do the impossible to rescue her. For this, they will invoke the spirit of Mr. Miyagi who will teach them all karate's secrets. Written by Jorge Benavente Rico

Short on budget, long on humor
1 August 2004 | by liudragonSee all my reviews

What you lack in budget can often be made up for with big doses of humor and inspired direction. Newcomer Pedro Temboury makes a big splash with silly zombies, a portly villain, a rubber monster, stock footage and clever cameo appearances by cult director Jess Franco and actress Lina Romay. Big baddie Paul Lapidus plans to take over the world with karate trained zombies so of course he starts by attacking that vital town of Torremolinos. Call in martial arts champ Oliver Denis to the rescue and see him knocked off almost immediately. The jokes are smart the acting is way above what you'd expect from such a low budget film and Temboury's direction keeps things going at a pace that always keeps your interest. Don't let the subtitles scare you away. Maybe One Shot Productions, who Temboury's worked for in the past, will release this in on USA DVD in a dubbed version. In joke lovers will take note of the same green goblin that stalked the Spanish countryside in "Les Psycho-Lettes."
