Zombies Of Mass Destruction (Blu-Ray)
The Blu-Ray says:
An idyllic island town is under attack by that most invasive of pests: zombies! Port Gamble is being overrun with braineaters, and the people seem powerless to stave them off. But wait, a rag tag band of rebels is trying to turn the tide and push the invading hoards of undead back. It sounds familiar, sure, but this time stereotypes are on parade (and parody) in a retake on the zombie thriller. We have the full compliment of cinematic shorthand, including the closeted small town boy who has gone to the city and returns with his pushy boyfriend in tow; the angry, hard-working, heavy-accented, immigrant from a Muslim country who is overprotective of his beautiful daughter; the hippie peacenik environmentalist; the fire and brimstone reverend who hates everything you’d expect him to, and many more. Enter the zombies. Gore abounds and the current events-based hits keep coming in this send-up of zombie movie clichés where no subculture escapes unscathed.
Running Time: 89 mins
Sound: Dolby Digital 5.1 & 2.0
Special Features: Trailer, Making of Feature.
Very fun take on the Zombie genre. It's usually good when a horror film doesn't take itself too seriously and this is no exception. The third feature film from director Kevin Hamedani is certainly a good picture. The whole production looks fairly polished and delivers a picture to rival the biggest film studios. The cast really do the script justice and raise the resulting story above the large influx of zombie flixs hitting the DVD/Blu-Ray market. It's a shame that the title of the film doesn't really reflect the film contents which results in it sounding like a 50p bargain bin title. Don't be fooled, this is certainly worth watching. This Blu-Ray release provides a great picture and sound transfer and just goes to prove the quality of the makeup and effects under high definition scrutiny. The extras are limited to a trailer and making of featurette. I would have liked to see more, but it's much better than nothing!
