Crazy Credits

Dedicated to the brave men, women and children who died as heroes on that fateful sunny morning of September the 11th, 2001. I thought long and hard before ending this film with the last spoken line of, 'Let's Roll', and figured it was to honor those who have fallen. In a sense, terrorists are like the living dead, mindless drones who march off to complete their crazed tasks because they don't know any better. May god, any god, have mercy on their souls. 9/11 'A cry for help, a day to remember.' See more »

So bad it's brilliant
21 February 2007 | by zhadiSee all my reviews

I really didn't want to give this film a rating at all 'cause I wasn't sure whether to give it a 1 for its total lack of anything resembling talent or a 10 for the enjoyment I got from watching just the first 20 minutes. So I went for the middle ground with a 5.

The total lack of continuity in the shot set ups alone had me giggling uncontrollably. The wooden acting is priceless. This movie makes PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE look like fine art. And note to the make-up/FX crew: if the way to kill a zombie is to shoot it in the head, having a close-up of a 'live' zombie with a head-shot wound probably not the best idea.

That all being said, I will buy any movie or book this guy puts out there 'cause they are just so much bad fun. And bad or good, kudos for finishing a 120 minute movie with no budget.
