Zombie 90

Dir: Andreas Schnaas
Star: Matthias Kerl, Ralf Hess, Mathias Abbes, Marc Trinkhaus

[8] Subtitled "Extreme Pestilence", this is no Nekromantik - it's not even Rabid Grannies - yet as an exercise in Euro-excess it has some cheap & cheerful charm and thankfully lacks the misogynistic feel of their earlier Violent Shit. Undead on the rampage is a full plot description, and the movie is very nearly sunk early on by the worst dubbed soundtrack I've ever seen, which tries to be funny and fails miserably. Fortunately, after about 30 minutes, nearly all the dialogue stops and the rest of the film is a series of set pieces of effects work, of varying effectiveness from laughable to impressive, all of which use a lot, and I mean a lot, of arterial spurting. The camerawork is shaky, with things and people getting in the way too often, but hell, it's heart's in the right place - right out in the open being waved at the camera and chewed on by zombies. Don't expect Total Recall and you'll quite possibly enjoy it.
