The army loses a barrel of nuclear waste in backwoods, USA, and somehow
it ends in the hands of a family of hillbillies (P.Floyd Piranha, William
Decker, Pericles Lewnes, William E.Benson), who promptly use it as secret
ingredients for their moonshine, which they then deliver all over town -
at least all that they don't drink themselves - with the result that all
the locals turn into flesh-eating zombies.
The army soon notices one of
their barrels of nuclear bombs is missing, and slightly miscalculating the
risks this may carry, they send a total of three soldiers into the area to
correct the mistake. The soldiers are town to bits and devoured by the
zombies all too soon.
Wilbur (James H.Housely), who was born in the
region, takes his college friends on a camping trip to where he was born,
promising them nothing but the paradise ... but he proves to be a pretty
bad guide, and if it wasn't for the stash of marihuana he carries (and
shares freely), the others would have torn him to shreds long ago. On day
two of the camping trip though the zombies attack, and it's pure luck that
most of the group survive the first zombie wave, even purer luck that they
find out the zombies are allergic to a certain kind of deodorant, and the
purest luck one of them carries cans over cans of the deodorant.
with deodorant, the campers face the zombies - but are killed one after
the other. Only one of them (Lisa M.DeHaven) is saved by a mystery
stranger - but only after she has been inpregnated by one of the zombies
Redneck Zombies is a movie made on the dirt cheap, and it's
silly as hell - which might turn a lot of people off the film to begin
with. However, far from being a masterrpiece, the movie has its charm,
mainly due to the fact that it on the one hand doesn't overstrain its
budget, on the other it's aware of its own silliness and makes fun of it.
The comedy is of course of the hit-or-miss variety and could have done
with a little less gross-out jokes, but there are a few laugh-out-loud
good jokes in there, and especially Anthony Burlington-Smith has a handful
of great scenes, like when he trips out during an impromptu surgery or
tries to pretend to be a zombie.
Again, no masterpiece, but quite a
decent party flick - and if I'm not very mstaken, that's exactly what it
was meant to be.
