Review: Zombie A-Hole (2011)
First I´d like to thank Dustin Mills for providing me with a screener of his movie.
Zombies exist, and a whole underworld of nasty beings is hinted at. Need a little magick (that"s magic with a k) to help you out? No problem... stop over at Voodoo Bob's trailer and pick yourself up something nice. Shrunken heads? Hell... he's got a whole shrunken man. This is the story of a religious cowboy, a lost soul, and a beautiful grease monkey fixing to exact bloody vengeance on the same son-of-a-bitch. He's a low-down, dirty, disgusting, depraved, sadistic, psychotic, hell bent, grade F, Zombie A-Hole and he ain't gonna know what hit him! Zombie A-Hole is written, produced and directed by Dustin Mills. The acting is uneven it isn´t too bad. The camerawork and editing is okay but keep in mind that this was made on a very tight budget. The soundtrack is very good. It´s gory, much of it it is computer gendered and some of it are quite simple practical make-up-fx and feels a bit cartoonish but I think this is a intentional choice as well as due to the evidently very limited budget. I do like the design and look of the zombiefied Pollux and while the the resurrected skeletons are in tone with the cartoonish style they look very plastic and that´s probably due to the fact they are made of plastic...There is plenty of female T & A including full frontal nudity.
This review based upon a online screener provided by the director.
Rating: 4 out of 7. I enjoyed it, sure it has some flaws but take for what it is, a ride in a cartoonish magic world next to our boring reality and you´ll probably enjoy it also.
