DVD review: Flesh of the Living (Video 2012)
The end of the world is here as the dead are returning to life with a craving for human skin. All hell breaks loose as the living try to survive with their flesh intact. Flesh of the Living is written and directed by Robert Elkin.The acting is pretty bad, it´s amateurish and I think the cast consits of firends and happy amateurs. The camerawork and editing isn´t very good and many scenes seems almost been shot guerilla style late at evenings in the filmmakers hometown Petersburg, Virginia, USA. The audio is pretty bad now and then which makes it hard or even impossible to hear what people are saying. There is a lot of intentional and unintentional comedy in this. There is gore, practical make-up fx which looks pretty cheap for the most part. The highlight is when a man has had his face eaten off. The design of the zombies varies greatly, some look decent but most of them look pretty bad compared to zombies from independent flicks. No T & A in this.
This review is based upon the region 1 DVD release from American Eyesore Films.
Rating: 0½ out of 7. Yeah it´s pretty bad but there are a few good scenes and some funny moments. It´s made on a micro-budget by fans for fans and I´m pretty sure they had fun making it. If you´re a fan of micro-budget and have a lot of leniency you might wanna check it out...
