yet another italian zombie-cannibal film that seems to have been made on some kind of assembly line, all the films are practically the same, still they are classics to me
Why would anyone like this movie?
It's wonderful late night cheese.
It does feature the worst commando unit, ever!
These guys can't kill shit!
Bad in every sense of the word. It recycles Goblin score from Dawn of the Dead, the zombies are half oatmeal face and half ripped off from Tom Savini's DOTD look, the writing is awful, there's documentary footage spliced in because there's obviously no money, and you just don't care what happens.
A 1980 Italian movie similar to Zombi 2 or Zombie Holocaust, a zombie outbreak occurs on an island full of native "savages" with primitive rituals. The outbreak, however, is caused by Western chemical companies and secret agents in blue jump suits are sent to New Genie where they run into a couple of journalists reporting on the scene.
Lots of really cool gore effects, tons of zombies and a soundtrack made of Goblin tracks (although I think they are from other films).
The gore is great, but everything else is thoroughly awful. The acting is (mostly) bland, the plot is all over the place, and the dialogue is atrocious. It's a campy mess that's worth the occasional ironic viewing.
Bad zombie movie. It does have it's moments but what really makes this movie shitty is the ending. The bad acting, weird stock-footage use and shit screenplay with the fuck ass camera are all tried to be hiding by the filmmakers with, to compensate, buckets of gore. This movie could've have been very good but it ain't. Not recommended.
Bizarre film due to the amount of jarring stock footage used (reminds me of a gag from Father Ted). The storyline is ridiculous but some of the zombies are cool. Acting in the so bad it's good category. Still a strange, bad yet entertaining flick.
Offering exploding heads, incoherent dubbing and shoddy synths galore, Bruno Mattei's Romero ripoff is allegedly a spaghetti horror classic.
The film stars the sort of shock-happy characters who've never seen a zombie movie before, as they navigate their way through offensive tribal stereotypes, closeups of people being sick, and random bits of wildlife footage spliced straight from old nature documentaries.
Occasionally the odd zombie pops up and nibbles a rubber hand or chews on a steak strapped to an actor's leg but, for the most part, this clueless film is the utter pits of an already pitiful sub-genre. Even the unintentional comedy is limited, and that's disappointing, considering Claudio Fragasso was involved in writing and direction.
Trash you came for and trash you'll get with this Mondo/Cannibal/Zombie anti-classic that's just lovely all round. The equivalent of eating a packful of half baked cookie dough which i make a note of doing each time i revisit this absurd to the point of self-parody Italio exploitation gem.
Featuring bland zombies, an awesomely pointless and silly nude scene, boring story that doesn't go anywhere, lush locations and beautiful cinematography, awkward acting and an all over the place message, Hell Of The Living Dead is another sleazy italian zombie flick that's entertaining enough for it's bad bits, which run aplenty. Add some outrageous deaths at the end and this is a "success".
