This was, surprisingly, oddly enjoyable...
7 July 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well with a title as "Fat Ass Zombies" (aka "American Zombieland"), I must admit that I didn't really have much of any expectations for this 2020 movie from writers George Bennett, Christopher De Maria and Brave Matthews. But still, with it being a zombie movie, of course I had to sit down and watch it.

I saw that Thomas Calabro was in the movie, although I don't really understand why he was listed that high on the cast list, because he was in the movie for not even five minutes.

Now, "Fat Ass Zombies" is a low-budget zombie movie, no doubt about it. But the movie was actually surprisingly entertaining and enjoyable, given the storyline and the fact that the movie was made with love by people that clearly had an interest in the zombie genre.

Was the movie generic? You bet it was. But it is one of those type of low-budget movies that are actually good and wholeheartedly fun to watch.

The zombie make-up was a mixed bag of nuts, however. Some of the zombies had definitely adequate zombie make-up and prosthetics, while others were just horrible to look at with pale-painted facial make-up and very little else. But it actually works out well enough for the movie. And I guess it was because the movie wasn't taking itself serious enough for it to be an issue.

The acting in "Fat Ass Zombies" - that title still doesn't really lay well with me - was adequate, and it was clear that people were enjoying themselves and having fun making and participating in the movie.

"Fat Ass Zombies" was a surprise and actually a fun addition to the zombie genre. While it is no contender for "Shaun of the Dead", this was still enjoyable enough for what it turned out to be. I am rating "Fat Ass Zombies" a six out of ten stars.
