There is nothing better than a good zombie movie. The zombie genre is one that can be taken seriously or just as a goof. The cool thing is, is that neither is better than the other. You have your good and your bad in either style, but for the most part, you can usually find merit in both. To capitalize on the recent news, of bath salts turning people into maniacal zombies, MVD Visual has just released Bath Salt Zombies.
This is a unique film, because has an old school feel to it, especially with the cartoon intro. It is in the style of 50's propaganda film, which warns people about bath salts. It gets a little cheesy when the characters start cursing, but I'm sure that was just for an added laugh. After the propaganda film, the movie kicks into live action. The story focuses around two main characters: an addict named Ritchie and a vigilante cop hell bent, to stop the infestation. Apparently there is a zombie epidemic due to drugs laced with bath salts. When the junkies smoke the bath salts, they become homicidal maniacs, which turned out to be a fun plot line.
The movie was very entertaining, but is not for everyone. You must be a fan of B-horror flicks to get what these guys are throwin' down. The acting is subpar and the effects are laughable, for the most part, but that is what makes these films great. The visual effects are a mix of CGI and old school (70/80's) gore. It's fun, but you have to appreciate this movie for what it is. This is one to pop a cold one to.
Bottom Line: A fun, entertaining B-movie, which is soon to become a cult classic. Lots of gore and laughs, it doesn't get much better than that.
