An idyllic island town is under attack by that most invasive of
pests: zombies! Port Gamble is being overrun with braineaters, and the
people seem powerless to stave them off. But wait, a rag tag band of
rebels is trying to turn the tide and push the invading hoards of undead
back. It sounds familiar, sure, but this time stereotypes are on parade
(and parody) in a retake on the zombie thriller. We have the full
compliment of cinematic shorthand, including the closeted small town boy
who has gone to the city and returns with his pushy boyfriend in tow;
the angry, hard-working, heavy-accented, immigrant from a Muslim country
who is overprotective of his beautiful daughter; the hippie peacenik
environmentalist; the fire and brimstone reverend who hates everything
you'd expect him to, and many more.
Enter the zombies. Gore
abounds and the current events-based hits keep coming in this send-up of
zombie movie clichés here no subculture escapes unscathed.
Zombies of Mass Destruction is released on DVD and blu-ray 18th October
