Worst zombie movie ever? Aren't you a litlle kind?


Worst movie I've seen in my life for as long as I can recall. I am still happy to have seen it because I now have a new low and the illusion that it won't be beaten.

If you want to set the bar even lower, check out barely legal lesbian vampires.

yes... yes indeed... truly terrible, the barely legal lesbian vampires. i was suckered into buying it in one of those mill creek 50 movie packs. didn't notice at the time that it was a joint release, with pendulum pictures, fine distributors of absolutely nothing worthwhile. so now i own 50 godawful films, one of them being... barely legal lesbian vampires. possibly the worst of the lot. and that's saying something. joy indeed.

This film was not bad at all! It was PERFECT for its genre....a low-budget, B-movie zombie flick with lots of good female nudity. It's not to be taken seriously. It's a guilty pleasure; good late-night viewing and an excuse to show some nice female skin. I mean, c'mon, did you really expect Gone With The Wind?

I loved the underwater skinny-dipping scene with lots of leg-spreading shots. One of the few films to show some full female genitalia for a change. Unfortunately, the sexist MPAA wouldn't give them an R-rating so it had to be "Unrated". (I hate the MPAAA and their sexist double-standard. They will allow penises to be shown with an R-rating but not a vagina. What an unfair, discriminatory double-standard!) Anyways, this film wasn't bad. Good, clean, cheesy, B-movie fun!

It's far from perfect, buddy. I understand it's a fun film, but there were some SERIOUS flaws that made it rather unenjoyable. For example, the pacing on some of the scenes. My dear god, how some of those scenes dragged on and on with no purpose but to make the viewer claw his own eyes out.

Take the zombie vs. zombie scene; that was one of the most tedious fights I have ever seen, and I kept hitting the time button ever ten seconds to see how long I've been clawing at my eyes.

Don't get me wrong, the film's hilarious for all the wrong reasons, but some parts just made it so bad no good could come out of it.

All the characters just seemed... clueless.
