Zombie horror movies have always been a part of the low-budget independent filmmaking arena, and they’re often not very well made. They do, on occasion, find a small audience and grow into cult favorites in spite of their quality. Then there are those that go unseen and practically forgotten soon after been released, essentially escaping any kind of cult recognition. In which category will the next pair of movies fall into, I wonder?
I can’t really explain my enjoyment of low-rent, Z-grade garbage, but when done right, these types of flicks can be pretty damn funny. (Watch Uwe Boll’s idiotic ‘Blubberella’ for one done completely wrong.) ‘Zombie Hamlet’ has what seems like an amusing mash-up. Besides the Shakespeare-meets-zombies angle, it’s also a self-aware satire on low-rent, Z-grade garbage. I doubt it’ll be anything special, but it looks like an easy way to kill 90 minutes.
Speaking of Uwe Boll (as producer this time), here’s another low-rent zombie feature that probably won’t be very good. The teaser, on the other hand, is freaking awesome! The editing and stylized photography make the movie seem far better than it most likely is, and that’s the only reason I’m even bothering with it. The silence and ethereal background music add some mild creepiness, but the best part is definitely the woman’s slow transformation into a zombie horde.
