DVD review: Bloodlust Zombies (Video 2011)
A military weapons manufacturer creates a chemical weapon that causes victims to become blood-lusting killers. A lab accident causes the building to go into lock-down and the employees are trapped inside with the crazed killers. Bloodlust Zombies is written and directed by Dan Lantz. He´s also director of photography and plays the role of one the of the security guards. It´s made on a limited budget which is apparent when watching the film.
On the techniqal side it´s better than average regarding the camera work and editing.
There are some gore but it´s mostly blood splatter, the special fx are mostly amateurish and bad. There is a fair amount of nudity, adult film star Alexis Texas as Andrea strips down several times during the film duration and hey I´m not complaining as she´s good looking...
The pacing is good, which can be expected as the film has a running time of 80 minutes including credits.
There is a large amount of comedy, both intentional and unintentional as the the acting is mostly bad but the cast do the best they can.
Rating: 2½ out of 7. Bloodlust Zombies is a quite enjoyable and charming but I would have prefered a straight up comedy or a straight up horror film.
