ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction (2009) - Kevin Hamedani


Zombie movies must be the easiest things to make, they are being pumped out nowadays much like vampire movies post-Twilight, and I am starting to get a little tired of them. I wish the people making these zombie flicks would take some time and pride in their craft, unfortunately they don't. This zombie movie is full of gay jokes and redneck humor; its comedy/horror that pokes fun at politics with useless discussions about how democrats are pussies or how America is Islamaphobic. This movie is a terrible excuse for a zombie film and I wish I hadn't seen it. 

The movie is about a zombie outbreak that occurs on the small island of Port Gamble. According to a news broadcast the outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack. Now the island has three Muslim people that live on it: our sort of main character Frida (Janette Armand), her father and some other guy mentioned in passing. Throughout a big chunk of this movie Frida is tortured by a deranged racist redneck for "obviously being a terrorist". The other main characters are Tom and Lance, a gay couple that have come to the island to "Come Out" to Tom's mother. All of these characters fend off the undead for the entire movie. 

The movie has plenty of blood and guts, it is really bloody, and the effects are pretty good. The usual effect is just blood spraying from zombies biting the necks of their victims, however there is a pretty cool scene where a guy gets his face ripped off. The acting leaves a lot to be desired and I found myself actually getting pissed off when Frida's father came onscreen; his acting bothered me to no end. I am going to have to give this movie a 2 of 10. The effects are cool but the movie is horrible.
