The world population has dropped in half since all of the teenage girls between the ages of 15-17 have begun dying off and returning as zombie schoolgirls! As the Romero Repeat Kill Troops set out to destroy the threat, a crazed scientist works to unlock the secret that is causing this deadly phenomenon. Any subtext about teen fetishism and innocence lost that STACY might present is marred by this awful mess of a production. Though billed as a Horror Comedy, STACY is mostly unfunny, and it suffers from terrible acting, ugly cinematography, and a painfully slow pace. There are only a few distanced moments of bloody mayhem that are worth watching for, along with the typical fanboy references to THE EVIL DEAD and George Romero. Naoyuki Tomomatsu is simply unable to translate the intelligence of Kenji Otsuki's original novel in a meaningful way, leaving most zombie fans either confused or uninterested. The over-the-top gore and camp ridiculousness that does make it into STACY would lead the way for better films like THE MACHINE GIRL, TOKYO GORE POLICE, and ROBOGEISHA later in the decade.
