Since I was thirteen years old I have loved zombie movies. My first zombie experience was "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things." It horrified me and ever since I have been only moved by fear with this genre of film. Neeley Lawson's Broken Springs was a great semi new take on the whole aspect of how a Zombie Apocalypse would occur. I had never heard of this ideal of hillbilly's and moonshine causing the pandemic. I spoke with someone about this film after I saw it because it is so worth talking about, they said, back in the eighties, there was another hillbilly zombie movie similar to this but it wasn't moonshine that caused the problem. Since I haven't seen the other film I have to say this was an awesome take on the zombie film genre. It had that great cheesy comical taste to it of the seventies zombie genre, and, I am calling it now, this will become a zombie cult film. Filming on location in the south created a great backdrop for this story line. The scenery in the south is unmistakable and for good reason. All the actors were local people, so again, it made for a, more real, depiction of people in the south. It is a fun roller coaster ride of, humor, and, horror, definitely, a must see film. Way to go Neeley, you hit the nail on the head with this film.
