The makeup looks like peanut butter, the blood looks like nail polish, and an undead creature gets beaten to death with a blanket . . . but nothing can stand in the way of the most ill-conceived Italian trash-vampire-zomboid wreck-bomb in the goddamn galaxy! A radioactive airplane lands and immediately spews forth a seemingly endless fountain of drippy man-scabs and scumbos, each on a feral cannibalistic rampage. To call them "zombies" is to overlook the fact that these shit-caked spazznuts can operate machinery, fire automatic weapons, and run faster than a fat kid behind an ice cream truck. Director Umberto Lenzi may have made his name with jungle cannibal epics like CANNIBAL FEROX, but his go-for-broke dedication to flesh-ripping offensiveness hit a crescendo in this holocaust of anti-human bloodrage. (Zack Carlson)
