I just saw this in an all night movie marathon together with one of the most rowdy crowds you'll find on movie festivals.
People cheer, boo and scream out for more nudity and gore. It must be very tough for a director watching the immense response of the viewers which can go either way.
So what about Zombie TV? It's not really a feature movie but a collection of sketches and short stories all themed around the zombie phenomenon.
Some parts are outrageous like the virgin guy who wants to touch the mega-boobs of a zombie, another series is about zombie gymnastics and a pink lady zombie who stretches the skin of wanna-be zombies (without special effects). There is song and dance by the Zombie God, encouraging people to give up human existence for a less stressing and care free existence as a zombie.
This all adds up to a highly surreal mix of zombie fun.
The problem is: there is simply not enough material and ideas in the sketches and short stories to make the whole movie appealing. Good ideas are repeated so towards the end it gets boring.
The very best part was actually shown before the movie (and I don't know if this will be part of the official release): about a man crucified by a non who tortures him for making sleazy movies. A daring, short movie mingling sex with religion and sin.
Never the less it seamed the audience had a good time with it, but watching this alone would be a whole less lot of fun.
