Storyline

Cult horror director John Specht's low-budget feature, "Electric Zombies," neatly cobbles together two disparate genres: the conspiracy thriller and the horror/slasher movie. It also comments sardonically on the post-9/11 fear of the U.S. government-gone-haywire, as it recounts the tale of a misguided federal project to brainwash "enemies of the state" via cell-phone signals. The signals inadvertently grow in power and become redirected to the U.S., turning unsuspecting civilians into super-obedient zombies whenever their cell phones are answered. They receive self-destructive orders, which they follow will-lessly -- orders running the gamut from self-mutilation to suicide to homicide to riot. Those who manage to escape from falling prey to the menace must find a way to stop the threat -- before the U.S. erupts into unchecked anarchy. Written by Jonas Moses

Who Needs Sominex When You Can Rent This?
20 April 2007 | by EllenRipley112See all my reviews

The only reason I bothered to rent this is because I am on a personal quest to watch every zombie movie ever made. So since this has "zombies" in the title, someone recommended it to me. When I find that person, I will beat them senseless with their own DVD player. How bad can a movie get? I've seen college projects that came out better than this. The director seems to have forgotten how to cut away from one scene to the next, preferring to "FADE TO BLACK" every two minutes. There's at least one part where it appears they're trying to film a music video--an entire song plays while disconnected scenes come and go with no dialogue and make no sense to the plot or the song whatsoever. And it's apparent the Plot Summary here was written by someone involved with the pic--"neatly cobbled"? Try "completely hobbled" both genres. Most times I can't understand what most of the characters are saying--either the "background" music is too loud, or they're just plain mumbling. This film is only one step above the worst movie you've seen so far, because I'm not familiar with your viewing habits, dear Reader, and while it is NOT the WORST movie ever made, it's definitely near the bottom.
