Night of the Living Dead shocked audiences with scenes of ghouls devouring human bodies — actually fried chicken — but I can’t even imagine what would have happened if those audiences sat through Andreas Schnaas’ Zombie 90: Extreme Pestilence.
A military transport carrying untested lethal chemicals crashes into the forest, leading to a dead patient returning from the dead in an operation room. Before long, decimated human beings are turning up and the Extreme Pestilence pandemic has broken out. That’s a nice way of saying zombies and we all know that the only way to kill them is to take out the brain.
The English dub was done as a joke and honestly, it makes the movie. It’s also deeply offensive, but so is this movie, in which no people in wheelchairs, breasts, babies or penises are safe.
It’s not the best zombie movie ever — or even the best gore movie, as it promises — but for those that find its wavelength, it’s pretty entertaining. I mean, it cost $2,000 or less to make, so they definitely got their money’s worth of H.G. Lewis’ looking blood.
