This movie isn't bad but it's not very good either. It's just coasting off the original like so many remakes do in recent years. The original had an amazing cast and a lot of charm. It wasn't brilliant by any means but it was much more original and easier to buy into than this one.
The credits are hilarious... after that you get into the actual movie which is complete garbage, and not even in the funny way that you can at least keep laughing at, it is just two tedious hours of bad acting in a poorly written and directed piece of cinematic cow flop that feels more like 4-6 hours.
The best way to enjoy this movie is to watch and laugh your way through the credits, skip to the end credits and laugh some more, then come here to IMDb and read all the glowing reviews. Also count the votes, I find it funny how something like exactly 650-700 people up vote every positive review and down vote every negative one ahaha... also curious how this awful movie this guy made by himself has way more reviews than so many real professionally produced movies, and how all of them are also raves... gee I wonder what happened there.
Anyway if you want a good gangster movie skip this, it's terribly made in every way. Watch The Sopranos instead, that's basically what D'Angelo is trying to do here anyway.
Frank D'Angelo is a master of making terrible, terrible movies while actually trying to make good movies (and somehow convincing himself that he is succeeding)... but this really is his Citizen Kane of ego fueled bullpucky.
Added to the usual roundup of Hollywood has been actors he somehow convinces to be in his awful movies d'Angelo has somehow convinced James Caan to be in this. Yes, the James Caan from The Godfather. If you Google James Caan and Sicilian Vampire (and you definitely should) you'll find a fantastic interview, the title is something like "why on earth was James Caan in this awful movie???" Anyway, read that and you'll find out how Caan fell on such hard times he was forced to make this garbage movie to pay his alimony, and the movie is so bad he skipped out on the premiere and actually used this movie in court to convince the judge to cut his alimony payments because being forced to do this movie caused great harm to him and his career.
Anyway, this mob boss (obviously D'Angelo casts himself in this starring role) opens a crate of bananas, gets bit by a bat and becomes a mafia vampire. Keep in mind that this is not I repeat NOT a comedy!
Watch for the scene where all the other mob guys force him to get up on stage and sing a song for no apparent reason other than Frank D'Angelo loves to get up on stage and sing songs to show off how talented he is.
It would be hilarious if this all wasn't so sad in real life. The guy needs some kind of help or maybe just some real friends to tell him to stop flushing his money down the toilet like this.
As always be sure to read all the positive reviews here that are for sure by real people who saw and loved this movie, hahaha.
Is this show awful? Yes. Worst ever? I don't know but it belongs in the running for that title. Am I saying not to watch it? No way! Definitely check it out. Watching it once or twice is enough to have as much fun as you're gonna have, but it is for sure worth checking out just to see that this is a real actual person that really exists.
Many of the commercials are also for his "movies" that he famously shoots in one weekend (because he rents all his stuff over a weekend because that's how to save money on film equipment rentals I guess). Unlike the show those movies are just bad, not funny bad, and not worth watching. The posters are funny though if you can get hold of one. He directs, stars, does all the songs (did I mention he's a "famous" singer?), writes, etc, etc.
Oh also the show is taped in the basement of his restaurant and the audience has like five people in it who I would bet good money are there because they're getting paid or employees who are threatened with being fired, or family members of this clown d'Angelo, or all three.
You should also read all of the reviews here. Hundreds of positive votes and reviews all popped up for this show and his movies and they are a very funny read. Check them out and you'll see why.
Definitely check out this show if you enjoy a good train wreck!
Both of them have movies only a handful of people have ever seen yet somehow tons of high scores and reviews pop up from users who have only registered to say how much they love his movie. Like, a ridiculous number of reviewers. It's painfully obvious what's going on here.
Anyway, this zombie movie isn't a movie because of the poor quality and length and isn't a zombie movie because the makeup is not very good, the effects are worse/non-existent and there's a total of four or five zombies who pop up in the film for almost no screen time. Nothing interesting, funny or entertaining at all in this. It's not even bad in a funny way, it's just bad.
Give it up, Mukesh Asopa, your short movies stink and the reviews and ratings are fake, fake, fake.
