Zombie Bloodbath (1993)

An accident at the nuclear power plant unleashes a horde of bloodthirsty zombies on an unsuspecting town, leaving a small group of survivors to fend for themselves. BLOODBATH can best be described as a zero-budget fan film in the vein of J.R. Bookwalter's THE DEAD NEXT DOOR, and it comes as no surprise when director Todd Sheets references Bookwalter among each of his other genre favorites in the character credits. Where Bookwalter made every attempt at creating something unique through his Zombie Squad and ambitious FX, Sheets only manages to muster a growing tedium that is broken up by moments of uninspired gore consisting of nothing more than store-bought pig intestines. The weak characterizations lack any amount of depth or development, while the leads are left to run around in circles for a little over an hour as their undead adversaries stalk them at every turn. Hardcore gore and low-budget Horror fans aside, few will be able to sit through this tiresome zombie effort.

Rating: 3/10.
Gore: 7/10.
Number of views: 1.

  2. It is a real test of patience TS, I can appreciate the attempt to ramp up the gore, but anyone can slop pig guts on someone and call it art
