The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!?

April 7, 2008

Although it is generally agreed upon that either Plan 9 From Outer Space or Manos: The Hands of Fate is the worst movie ever made, every once in a while – this piece of shit is mentioned. In the future, one of the people mentioning it may be me.

The problem with this film isn’t that it’s bad – although it IS bad – it’s that it’s boring. It’s a film about a zombie that kills strippers…strippers that don’t ever get naked, so technically I guess they’re burlesque dancers. The zombies aren’t even the dead kind – they’re the mind controlled kind. Again, BORING!

The cinematography is horrible as well. Not only is the film stock quality wretched, but the guy holding the camera (I hesitate to use the term ‘cinematographer’) is completely incapable of framing a scene. Every shot is off center and/or crooked. It was distracting to the point of irritation. I’d rather watch that Blair Witch shaky cam shit than total incompetence.

If I had known that MST3K had done an episode with this film, I definitely would have preferred to watch it that way. I spent an hour and a half bored off my ass that I will never get back!
