Mediocre horror comedy with a horde of hideous zombies stalking a couple of botcher filmmakers
17 May 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

A low budget horror comedy with splatter and slapdash elements . This is a slapstick terror/humor picture with blood and guts instead of custard pies . The screenplay concerns two "losers", two genial blokes : Aijón (co-scriptwriter Miguel Ángel Aijón who plays this geeky role) and Caspas (Miguel Angel Aparicio) , who decide to make a pustulant zombie film but slowly find their film coming to life around them . In itself, the movie does sort of follow that basic premise, but the filmmakers are much too convinced of their cleverness and as a result regurgitate one hell of a train wreck of a cinematic accident . They attempt to write a script starred by themselves in which they combat an army of zombies and then it appears a band of anti-Christ followers led by Entrecot (Santiago Segura) . Later on , they meet Carla (Mayte Navales) but she is willing to drop everything whenever she hears the script . She reveals her natural charms and falls in love for Caspas . As the starring have a confusing rumination on inspiration and their creative process is couched within the framework of a zombie film . They are besieged by a bunch of zombie mobsters with a craving for human flesh . At the end comes the exciting siege , at Santiago Segura's headquarter with the surviving couple getting into the swing of their desperate last stand . Sunken eyed Zombies are murderers , brain dead are armed and the grave bores them to death but ultimately the freak couple reduce the horde of flesh-eaters .

This slacker romp has thrills , chills , shambling , gormless , guts , gore and blood but such scenes are padded by so much extraneously and strenuously narrative confusion . There are some nice jokes in the film and the cast makes a cosy fit , but also contains a lot of flaws and gaps . The patter is still sitcom snappy adding a terror genre . ¨Una De Zombies¨ takes a simple conceit , think George A Romero blends early Kevin Smith and goofs off with something rotten ; however of the dramaturgical confusion is also almost headache inducing and the gore interludes , though creepy , are relatively sparse . But then , the flick is actually less a zombie movie than a long comedy about the realization a strange film . This has a Tarantinoesque narrative that interweaves and moves across time frames and realities . ¨Una De Zombies¨ is probably one of the least satisfying efforts to come out of Spain in a long time, light-years from being anywhere as good as 1993's ¨Acción Mutante¨ by Alex De La Iglesia which , by the way, had a substantially low budget but much better used . The yarn packs some cameos of famous people , familiar faces such as Pepe Navarro , Florentino Fernández and Gabino Diego . And , of course , special appearance by Santiago Segura in a triple role as Padre Pelayo / Entrecot / Himself , in fact , in the final scene, Aijón offers his script to the famous Spanish producer Santiago Segura played by himself ; in Segura's office there are posters of the saga of Torrente, even there are posters of non-filmed sequels . Actually, results to be patently unfunny , there are some "funny" stuff but even this stuff that works almost fails . Una De Zombies is not a film worth watching and, in turn, is not really amusing . The motion picture was regularly directed by Miguel Angel La Mata who subsequently shot : Tensión Sexual no Resuelta and Isi & Disi, Alto Voltaje . Neither the filmmaker nor his screen-writer have a solid grasp of either filmmaking nor scriptwriting , which are two fatal mangles to have if one wants to attempt a sympathetic low-budget . Rating : Average : 4.5/10 .
