Critic Review - FulvueDrive-in.com

A gore bore. "Barf bags" were handed out to people paying to see this in theaters. No-Doze would have been more appropriate.

To a guy surnamed O%u2019Learly a movie directed by a guy surnamed Fulci would be boring. A guy named O%u2019Malley walked into my dad%u2019s funeral home and said he%u2019d been in mortuaries but never a funeral home before. Another guy told he liked all kinds of music except reggae and rap, he said, %u201Creggae and rap we %u2018rent really musical forms anyway.%u201D Some people carry a view of things being either correct or incorrect. Could I ever trust O%u2019Leary to give Zombie a fair shot? No. If O%u2019Leary was given a choice between someone named John McCain and somebody else named Barak Hussein Obama, I would bet O%u2019Leary would choose the %u201Csomeone%u201D named John McCain and O%u2019Leary would find a plethora of excuses to say a guy named Barak Obama would not be a good choice. The movie Zombie, like the name Obama is %u201Cirregular%u201D to O%u2019Leary and therefore not worthy of as much critical attention as a %u201Cregular%u201D sounding movie like %u201CThe Princess Bride%u201D or John McCain. The magic of Zombie is lost upon O%u2019Leary because O%u2019Leary blinds himself to Zombie%u2019s more interesting details. O%u2019Leary would shoot-down anything I say to defend Zombie. Could an O%u2019Leary vote against a McCain? No. Yet everybody is entitled to his or her opinion.GFT

Don't even pretend like this movie is more than what it appears. "Dawn of the Dead" and "Night of the Living Dead" are the only zombie/social commentary movies you need to watch. This movie was boring. And way to throw in a nice red herring there. What do McCain and Obama have to do with this movie? Absolutely nothing!

Did you see the same movie I did. They had flamethrowers!

Really? Barf Bags? Some scenes are nasty, but I don't think anyone would barf over them.
