I like bad film… but not this bad.
I picked up this film a handful of years back while in a liquidation store for maybe $5. It was on a DVD that had 3 zombie films — Night of the Living Dead, HRZ, and another title I can’t remember right now. Out of the three films, this one is such a POS that I think the other two films each cost half of the total price and HRZ was thrown in for free — because this is the only way the folks who produced this film could get anyone to take a copy home.
Watching this film I get the impression that the producers and crew and the whole lot behind the film normally produce and shoot 1980s porn films. In this case they got together outside of their usual work to do something different, or maybe they were trying to get a foothold in another part of the film industry other than porn.
The audio is bad, the songs are bad, the love affair between the lead-singer of the band and the local girl who seems underage clearly verges on having a pedophile element … maybe the only good thing about this is the outrageousness that someone thought to have a zombie film that included Hitler and Nazis.
Do Not Waste Your Time With This Film
I like bad film but this was so much of a train-wreck that I could only stand to watch it in 10-15 minute intervals. It’s not one of those “It’s so bad it’s good” things, it’s just outright BAD.
