Zombie babies (2011)

Zombie babies is an überlow budget movie that seems to be born out of the fact that the filmmakers sat down and thought of the most repugnant storyidea ever - aborted fetuses that come back to life after being doused by a particular brand of rank moonshine, all set at Burts Casino and hotel (And budget abortion clinic) during a special sales event. The problem with the movie isnt that the subject is too much, i did get a chuckle or two during the movie (fave bit - when Burt decides on a name for the event - Aborathon *giggle*) and I loved the final babyzombie, a lovely rubbersuit that I would have loved to see more of. No, the main fault of the movie is that it is so technically inept that you get a headache from watching it. Firstly, it is shot on some kind of low grade video with the picture a blurry hell and a soundmix that feels like it was recorded with a cassettetapeplayer from a 20" tv-screen. The special effects (the word special has a new meaning here) are just bad with digital erasing of the puppets strings half done, see through blocks and half erased crew members all over the place.

The actors does seem to be in on the joke and are probably the best thing about the whole enterprise, even though the shoddy sound makes it pretty hard to follow the dialogue from time to time. There is a lot of blood and nudity for those of us who like that but in the end it is all a wasted opportunity. Bonus point for Zombie babies most likely being the only movie ever to show an aborted fetus crap in a mans mouth during what he thinks is a session of oral sex. Yes, you read that right.

No, this is not a good movie. I admire the filmmakers guts for actually making a movie about aborted zombie fetuses and actually getting distribution but it kinda feels half finished. The worst part about this whole endeavour though is the fact that for the rest of my life I will get this on Amazon.com: Recommended because you purhased Zombie babies. You know, stuff like Wrong turn 5. That is the true horror here.

  1. I'd hate to tell you what amazon recommends to me... I saw this at a store last week for OVER 20$! Seems ridiculously steep for something that promises to be this bad.

  2. I paid $12.99 for it from amazon, I dont really regret it. With that title it fits perfectly into my collection... :D
