For the vast majority of us, zombie films begin and end with George A Romero. There are some exceptions, such as Shaun of the Dead, which rears its undead head above a sea of dire imitators, but the vast majority of zombie flicks that are released have not been given the Romero stamp of approval and end up as normally weak, under-par efforts. Unfortunately, Zombies of Mass Destruction is not an exception to this rule.
Zombies of Mass Destruction is supposed to be a comedy zombie flick, but rather than being funny to watch, it relies far too much on over-the-top gross-out humour and jokes that make you wonder of the script was written by a teenager. Brainless in every sense of the word.The title of this film really does say it all – Zombies of Mass Destruction. It sounds crass and it is. It is so stupid it is offensive. The ‘jokes’ are just flat and make no sense in the majority of occasions.
The acting is awful, and there is an over-reliance on throwing as much blood as possible over the screen to disguise the fact that the film as a whole is so terrible. It attempts to deal with issues such as terrorism, religion, racism and violence, but each of these subjects is handled clumsily and it is obvious that whilst trying attempt a Romeo-esque take on society’s issues, it just doesn’t work.
If you loved the likes of Zombie Strippers (another lame film that attempted to blend comedy with the undead) you may well find some form of enjoyment here as well. But everyone else should give it the old heave ho… You have been waaaarned!
