Going into this movie, I had high hopes, and all in all it filled them. I ended up watching the first half with some friends, who are not ones who usually would pick this type of movie. As you would have guessed, they didn't take to the film to well and we ended up stopping it after the white army dude stabbed a zombie in the ear and the bright pink blood poured out. They said it was to fake. We did get a share of laughs out of it though. For example when they are raiding the apartment building and the fat guy busts down a door and shoots one of the occupants causing his head to explode. Good stuff!
I myself believe the introduction that uses the television station could have been cut a little shorter, but hey I can't change it so Ill just fast forward.
The gore effects in this movie are extreme for its time. The biting and the shooting is all the gore you get until you get into the meat of the film. The best gore through out the film has got to be the part where the zombies tear the stomachs open of a couple of the bikers, intense. They actually show the intestines spilling out and the bikers faces as they scream in agony.
By not stating what I thought was funny, I'll just allow the viewer to pick out his or her own comedic parts with in the movie. Believe me, you will find at the very least one part in this film funny. If not a laugh out loud then a slight chuckle.
If I may I would like to say to J. from Montclair that did the review that is one star and long, dude you are reading way to into this man. This is not totally a serious horror movie. Your dissecting it from every angle possible, you can't do that with this movie or it will suck. Once again, it's not totally serious.
Well this DVD has some nice extras like posters, radio and TV spots, trailers, different sound settings, and more. It's worth it if you are a horror/gore movie fan.
