Nights Of The Odd Zombie Schoolgirls
5 September 2007 | by Witchfinder-General-666See all my reviews

Naoyuki Tomomatsu's "Stacy" of 2001 is a messy and confusing, but highly entertaining and amusing humorous gore flick like it will only be made in the Land Of The Rising Sun.

In the near future (beginning of the 21st century), girls between 15 and 17 suddenly fall victims to a mysterious epidemic plague. After a period of gratuitous "Near Death Happiness" ("NDH") , the cheerful girls die, only to rise from the dead as flesh eating zombie-schoolgirls, commonly referred to as Stacies. These Stacies infest the streets with their desire for flesh, until they are "repeat-killed". In order to repeat-kill a Stacy, she must be cut in 165 pieces, a task which is performed mainly by the "Romero Repeat-Kill Troops", Swat teams in trucks specialized on Stacy-disposal...

When watching "Stacy", I couldn't help but laugh my ass off almost throughout the entire film. The plot es absolute nonsense, and there is no suspense at all, but it is (besides the excessive gore) exactly the absurd story that makes this movie such a joy to watch. "Stacy" is furthermore a tribute to Zombie-Classics, as the whole movie is full of references to movies like "The Evil Dead" or George A. Romero's 'Dead' films ("Romero Repeat-Kill Troops", a popular chainsaw called "Bruce Campbell's Right Hand, etc.).

The performances range from bearable to awful, but since this is a movie with a twinkle in the eye, that has to be seen with a certain sense of humor, the terrible acting is not really bothersome. As mentioned above, the gore is extreme, which is the movie's main purpose, and which should serve as a recommendation to my fellow gore-fans. "Stacy" may be pure nonsense, the plot is unbelievably odd and confusing at times and the acting is terrible, but the movie is certainly quite amusing for a fan of splatter flicks. Recommended for a good, gory laugh.
