Yay for new review, you and The Cinema Snob made me happier today =) a lot
“Zombie-Pyre?” Sounds like “Vampires VS. Zombies” to me. It’s a film made by Asylum Studios. A guy named “Wooden Spoon” said it was worse than Troll 2. Makes yah think doesn’t it?
What’s with the Star Wars jokes? I don’t get it.
You’re not a Jedi yet…
Do a review of suburban commando.
Wow, been a long time since you’ve done something from before the 90s. Between this and Night of the Lepus, I have to question why nobody knew how to actually act around crazy, nonsensical, idiotic killer whatevers. Everyone was ridiculously stoic or completely ridiculous in general. I’m glad we’ve fixed that nowadays! No more stoicism, all ridiculous.
Also damn you for reminding me of that jackass line Davies wrote. *sniff* He didn’t wanna go… damnit.
Awesome work my friend =) Is it bad that I love this movie? It’s got a special place in my heart, it was the first Italian Horror film I ever saw. I was in Junior High and rented it from out local video store, under the title of “City of the Walking Dead.” In a clamshell case too!
Haha thanks. Nah I agree this movie is an awesome bad one.
Especially Mr. Main Character’s I don’t care about anything. Oh look my wife is still alive… that’s cool I guess.
My favorite non-reaction is to the bloody guy/zombie whatever that suddenly appears in front of him at the tv studio: “Oh. Guess I’ll walk around.”

Hehe. One of the many reasons wht this one’s probably my favorite “bad movie”, among with Rats. Hugo Stiglitz is an incredible wooden actor. I’ve tracked down a lot of horror films with him in the lead after seeing this, and no matter if he’s throwing a magic exploding TV, taking down zombies with his bare hands, or sedusing fair ladies… he’s always got the face of a statue. I was really happy to see you review this one, and getting to hear that catchy theme song again.
Heh yeah I’ve gotta check more movies with him at some point, loved the constant stone face. Yeah this movie certainly made it clear what it’s theme music was.
Hehe. If you should succumb to cravings for his strange blend of over dramatic lines mixed with emotionless acting I have two of his funniest films to suggest:
He plays a not-Doctor-Loomis who runs around hitting zombies in the face with his bare hands through the terrible Halloween rippoff with zombies called “Cemetery of Terror” (1985).
He also plays a smaller role looking like a cowboy (with the least masculine choice for footwear in the world) in “La noche de la bestia” from 1988… which could be described as Predator; if the makers had been severly lobotomized and filmed it in their back yard. It also has the worst effect for for a huge explosion I’ve ever seen in a movie.
I don’t know why, but I got memories of Dawn of the Dead when I watched that. Same cinematography, same 70s tone, but no Tom Savini…or I hope. Either way, I would rather see the mutants from Beaneth the Planet of the Apes rather then make-up work of these muatant Toxic Avagner…zombie…rip off…whachamacallitbars….still, great review.
Oh, and the screen shrunk around 14:57, but once again the movie’s so duh duh dumb it fits perfectly.
In the movie’s defense with the runway men checking on the unmarked plane, well…. THEY’RE ITALIAN! XD
8:23, the Italians,..Planning a strategy?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA. We see how that turned out.
He he stupid surprised zombie…vampire…thing
((darth vader=awesomeeee. the old fasioned one not the prequal ones. Lol))
Stop being racist you ass.
You have titanium Starscream?! Sweet! Once again phenominal job Phelous! Combining all of my favorite elements that make you kick ass. By the way what other transformers do you have I see you have god ginrai. Oh and I’ve been meaning to ask why is he holding Rodimus’s sheild? Ah well keep up the amazing work!
Heh yes, Starscream is my favorite, if you couldn’t tell by certain things I’ve made heh. For a while I had every version of Prime I had standing over Rodimus holding a gun and his sheild. I kept it in Ginrai’s hand afterwards.
A hilarious review, love it.
Hahaha, awesome review Phelous! It really made my day to see you reviewing this movie. I had pretty much the same reaction as you did when I got to the “Oh, it was only a dream part” part when watching this film XD
Thanks man and thanks so much for sending it, was definitely a fun one. It’s like hey the plane think doesn’t make sense, oh wait it was a dream… oh wait it’s happening in “reality” too so it still doesn’t make sense!
Thanks again Phelous, once more you’ve managed to take a movie so bad it might have made me want to go on a blood drinking, nonsensicalness, melee weapon except one time a harpoon gun, killing spree!
Wish I could be at MagFest, but work won’t allow it. Have a great time though and represent the East Coast fellow Canuck! 😀
No comment on why the women were going aerobics in High-heels?! I can barely use the stairs in heels.
Anyways, great review as always, Phelous.
Is that “Stay Alive” cartridge still stuck in your NES I see? You’ll play it one day!
Is it just me, or is that an umbrella corporation patch being worn in the room military briefing room.
Might explain their general incompetence.
darth vador should have said i’ve gotta fuckin shotgun and another i do not wanna go doctor who referance is always funny 🙂
i remember renting this movie for free on VHS. its still one of my top 20 favorite zombie movies, #1 for now is “zombieland” narrowing edging out “shaun of the dead” but only because it has peter vehkman portraying bill murray. love that guy
Please do not say Nucular 😀
