However, what was finally released was a massive disappointment. Zombie dropped the ball in two big ways: 1) He tried to cram too many villains into the film. With Spalding, with the family of weirdos and with the mysterious subterranean Dr. Satan, there were too many bad guys for the viewer to effectively loathe. I got the feeling that Zombie had three films in mind and yet pushed all of them together. 2) There was hardly any real gore effects. A major reason fear film fanatics were going to see… Read more
