Did You Know?


The blank firing guns used in this movie were prone to malfunction and in some cases the "automatic" handguns had to be manually cycled in order to fire. The blank guns cost 25 cents every time they were fired. See more »


When "General Gibbs" is being hoisted back up from the elevator shaft covered in blood, there is a playing card stuck to his arm. This was due to the fact that this was a second take and the cards were all over the floor after "Lt. Colonel Baxter" flipped over the table. It should have been taken off before the second take.

Gen. Gibbs: It was awful. Try to imagine what a slaughterhouse would smell like in the summer sun when it went rancid

Its just plain awful.
14 October 2019 | by mindoxsulSee all my reviews

I purchased this movie back when it was released under the name MAPLEWOODS --- without knowing anything more than there were supposed to be zombies in the movie. Well, it was the most atrocious, plot-hole ridden, worst acted video I ever watched. It didn't even qualify as camp, avoid this at all costs - it was that poor. I actually found that drinking huge amounts of alcohol made watching it more bearable; but not by much. Even after three glasses of Scotch the movie did not look better.

Maplewoods takes the cliché of "the secret military zombie experiment gone wrong" to new levels of horribleness. Amazingly stupid. The army squad is escorted in by a CIA agent, which for some reason that is never explained or even hinted at, the military guys turn on him and just shoot the poor guy accusing him of being a turncoat. And it all falls off a cliff from there.

Watch as a strobe-effect-filled room full of poorly made-up zombies slapping each other with raw meat represents the shocking secret. Meanwhile, top side, the rest of the soldiers desperately try to run as slow as possible so the lumbering zombies can grab them.

Add in wooden actors who are from the "If I am not cursing every other word, than I better light up a smoke" school and you know your in for an unwatchable wreck. Every frame in this video is more useless than the next.

I can usually sit through a bad movie, and sometimes even watch it again with a friend to watch their reaction. With this movie (I shudder to call it that) I just couldn't. I wanted to give it away, but I don't dislike anyone that intensely enough to give it to them.

As a fan of both zombie movies & indie flicks from film makers on a shoe string budget, I would avoid anything to to with this ugliness. As for the wonderful first review up top, I wish I had been smoking what they were when I watched this.
