Summary: On a quiet street, in a small town, pure evil has come to stay. An innocent young man forced to care for his domineering mother finds the task a whole lot more demanding after she's bitten by the cursed Sumatran rat monkey. Passing the point of death, Vera sucks friends and family into her gruesome existence among the living dead and Lionel is sent spiraling into a ghoulish nightmare. Now a crazed zombie, she soon infects enough people to make it difficult for Lionel, still the faithful son, to keep the neighbors from suspecting that something is terribly wrong. (Lion's Gate)
Hilarious and over the top in just about every way. It takes a little while to get going to the point where I was wondering if I had the right movie, it lulls you into a sense of complacency, that everything is normal and utterly bland in this guy's life before everything hits the fan. So many awesome innovations, this was everything a zombie spoof should almost be. Unfortunately it offers little else in the way of plot or character development, but who really cares when a movie is this fun?
Forget the Rings. This is Jackson's best movie. English farce thrown together with zombies. I'm not sure whether the high point is the zombie baby in the park or the horrifying ending. I've seen far too many horror films. This is the only one that makes me look away. Zingiya!
"I kick ass for the Lord!!" I saw this shit in 8th grade, way before Peter Jackson went on to do LOTR trilogy. This is his true work of genius. A sumarian rat monkey spreads a zombie disease and lawnmower zombie massacres... Can't be beat.
Just your typical troma-like movie that prides itself on being hard to watch cause it's so gross. I will say that compared to most of those kinds of movies this one was pretty funny. the baby and the rat monkey were hilarious, and hilariously creepy.
Cuts to the chase, literally, from the beginning. Does a great job of building more and more on top of what's already been done. You think it can't get any more ridiculous, and then it just gets a hell of a lot more ridiculous.
i don't know where to begin with this one! love the special fx and the comedy, but beneath the surface of this movie there are a lot of stuff goin on. A satire of the family values, religion and society.
