The Sprawl, a seedy underworld of exploitation, violence, and zombies. In this maze of alleyways and speakeasies life is cheap, drugs are cheaper, and surviving to a ripe old age is an urban myth. At the center of it all is Johnny Sunshine, a porn star and killer for hire. She stalks the night like a tempest of sex and violence, much to the pleasure and profit of her producer, Max, and his entertainment empire. As the body count rises, Johnny becomes a victim of her own success. In secret a plot is hatched to orchestrate her downfall, and capture it all on camera to create the greatest snuff film ever made.Written by
This film reminded me a bit of Residential Evil (2002), but on a low budget level. This is because the main title character, Johhny Sunshine, goes around killing zombies in sexy outfits and fetish wear. However this was more in your face and tried to be more cutting edge and controversial.
In the distant future a zombie horde has taken over the planet and survivors are walled up in cities. There is a new entertainment for people that is a cross between torture porn and snuff films. Zombies are used for entertainment, killing them is the slowest way possible. Sounds sick huh? Well in principle is should have been. Some of the set ups and situations are indeed horrible, and there is a bit of gore. However it appears to have missed an opportunity to to be truly repulsive and this is probably to do with the low budget and amateur acting on display distracting from what is happening on screen.
Shey Bland is good in the title character and she looks the part. This films sets out to be a bit different and I feel that it has achieved it's goal. Not too bad for such a low budget film and I have seen a lot worse.
