If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you'd have to assume that things couldn't get much worse. In Martin's case, that was only the beginning.Written by
The one legged zombie in the medic scene is an actual amputee and provided the effects team with one of his own prosthetic legs to be torn apart used as a base for the shredded stump since creating a prosthetic that allowed for the insertion of a plunger and could support the actors weight from scrap proved difficult.

In the hospital, the police say that Martin's fingerprints were found on the axe that killed his girlfriend.
But the doctors reattached the arm that belonged to Herzog, so the prints would not have matched. See more »
This is a blast from beginning to end. Yes it borrows from Evil Dead and all the other classics from that time but it doesn't pretend not to. It doesn't take itself too seriously and this is obvious throughout the film and is so enjoyable to watch. I was brought up on the early eighties triple 'XXX' horror movies on my parents VHS machine. The likes of 'Scanners', 'The Exterminator'. Heck, once word got around that I had a copy of 'Scanners' I had all my mates and a few gatecrashers from the village round for the Premiere one Saturday afternoon. This is so over the top and I loved it. If you are a fan of this genre you will enjoy it. 'American Werewolf in London' had a similar black humour, this is one to settle back with a few beers and really indulge yourself.
