Zombiegeddon (2006)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This straight-to-video release from Troma boasts one of the finest B-movie casts ever assembled. We have scream queens Brinke Stevens (who gets naked) and Linnea Quigley (who doesn't). We have Conrad Brooks (Plan 9 from Outer Space). We have Tom Savini (an actor and makeup/effects guru on the original Dawn of the Dead). We have Edwin Neal (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). We have Robert Z'Dar (Maniac Cop and Maniac Cop 2). We have Troma president Lloyd Kaufman as a janitor. We have Joe Estevez (Martin Sheen's black sheep younger brother). And Ron Jeremy and Julie Strain lend their voice talent. Not to mention that the Worst Director Alive, Uwe Boll (Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne) appears in a prologue to warn viewers away. That said, Zombiegeddon is a mediocre piece of work, ranging from inspired lunacy to deadly dull stretches of space filler. The thin plot has zombies (who can appear as humans) attacking the earth, and only a Chosen One can stop them. Writer/director Chris Watson throws in a huge ensemble of needless side characters to puff things up and stretch the film to somewhere close to a feature running time (as it is he only makes it to 80 minutes). Still, its enthusiastic appreciation for B-movie subculture makes it a vague curiosity.

DVD Details: Extras include a filmmaker commentary track and a zombie commentary track, interviews, behind-the-scenes, outtakes, and promos for more Troma stuff.
