The Quick and the Undead (2006)


So far as I’m aware, this is one of two movies that combine the themes of zombies and cowboys — the other one being Undead or Alive (2007).

A viral outbreak has turned three quarters of the world population into the walking dead. In the old west, bounty hunters are humanity’s only salvation.

Once finished with this film in an hour, I predict I’m going to say two things:

1) It’s impressive what a person can do with their friends as actors, a $20 digital video camera from a liquidator store, a used Macintosh, and a few spare weekends.  But who knows, maybe there’s someone in this before they got famous — Marisa Tomei had a nothing part in The Toxic Avenger (who’s part wasn’t seen until the release of the director’s cut 20-odd years later).

 . . . AND . . .

2) I’m glad I watched this before Undead or Alive, as it’s probably a better film, and Quick and the Undead would be a bigger roach to watch following Undead or Alive.

Sneakers, t-shirt, arm band tattoo, a town that’s not old …. REALLY …. did ya guys even try?!?

Written, directed, and acted by people you’ve never heard of with a movie poster that looks like an angry cowboy monkey.  The main character is based on (read “ripped-off”) Clint Eastwood and the characters he played in westerns.  Yep, it’s a turd — I rate “The Quick and the Undead” Red Blood.

Probably THE MOST IMPORTANT link I can give you for The Quick and the Undead is Rotten Tomatoes, but there is also IMDB and Wikipedia
