The Movie:

Zombie Hunter is set in a post-apocalyptic Zombie wasteland caused by the mysterious street drug “Natas”. We follow one man who has nothing left other than a beat up Camaro and a trunk full of guns and booze. He runs down Flesh Eaters, hunting for sport and redemption, while also running from his past. After crashing into a small group of survivors, who are running low on resources, he decides to lend a hand. But a surprise attack by the Flesh Eaters forces them on the run and puts the Hunter’s skills to the test.

Have you ever seen a movie that leaves you thinking “What was all that craziness that I laid eyes on?”. This definitely one of those movies. I’m a HUGE fan of the zombie genre and have seen plenty of them but this is in a league of its own. It’s not up to par as some of the “classics” but still very entertaining. You could say that this film is like a hardcore punk band of the music industry. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but it’s so much fun to experience. The “flesh eaters” looked interesting with some of them looking like their faces were melted instead of the usual wounds or facial damage. I really liked the town of Dahmer and its insane cannibals that began to feed off of zombie flesh. I thought that was a unique idea that (would (un)realistically change them in to zombies themselves but) has never been seen before. The real wildcard came from the creature that was featured in the film. It looked like something out of the Resident Evil games and moved really menacing when it stalked the characters. As soon as it started to run and jump everywhere you could start to see bigger flaws in the visual FX which, didn’t bother me too much but it was there. I did like the creative look of the creature though which was a plus. The script didn’t have the best dialogue but I don’t think they were really looking to win a screenwriting Oscar. What we did have was a humorous look at the usual dialogue in genre films and the ongoing gag that made me chuckle was what I like to call “The¬†Murtaugh”. Which is the “I’m getting too old for this shit” line. The style of the film reminded me a bit of Grindhouse meets retro video games with the type of editing it had. After seeing some of the action sequences I kept thinking that it reminded me of dubstep for some odd reason…..then I remembered why. It’s because of this video:

If you want to check out a fun, indie, stylized zombie flick then this is the one for you. Pick this one up if you dare!
