Critic Reviews for The Astro-Zombies
Commits the cardinal sin of being slow and boring on top of being heedlessly bad.
There's bad, there's very bad, and there's Astro-Zombie bad.
Audience Reviews for The Astro-Zombies
I bet the editors of this movie never worked again, they did a horrible job, and so did the director and writer. What in the world is an "astro zombie" anyway? We're never even told are we? This movie makes no sense, I hated it.
This is such a quality motion picture that it took me three viewings before I got all the way through it without falling asleep. Bad acting, abysmal special effects and a ridiculous monster -- the scene of him running through the streets holding a flashlight to his forehead to recharge his power cell is priceless. John Carradine's scenes seem to have been filmed completely separate from anyone else's in that he never appears with any of the other actors, but rather spends all his time in his laboratory. A load of crap that really needs weird friends and alcohol to be properly appreciated.
I'm not saying I have a medical degree or anything, but SOLAR-POWERED HEARTS??? I can see a few problems with this.
Note to all aspiring filmmakers: hire an editor! You don't have to use every single second of footage you record in your actual movie. It's bad enough watching a man collect "blood" in a plastic container, but we don't need to watch John Carradine watching him!
