#1706 Halloween 2022: Redneck Zombies (1989)

I’ve drawn the line to any movie to end up in my watching list to be shot in film as towards the end of the 80s the amount of VCR recorders skyrocketed and so did the bad movies made by amateur teams, especially in the horror genre.

But, although shot on video Redneck Zombies came with high recommendations from Troma Entertainment so there must be something they saw in the movie, right?

Redneck Zombies is funny, extremely gory and almost anarchistic in the same way that Bad Taste is, and the video treatment only adds to the atmosphere. It’s also shot and cut as a movie shot on a film would’ve, with some actual directing work done by Special Effects coordinator Pericles Lewnes. It’s odd, extremely poor in taste and utterly stupid, but for the people looking exactly for those things Redneck Zombies will provide in abudance.
