Ungood: FleshEater

Posted by Cory Casciato On March - 12 - 2009

flesheaterWhen zombies make zombie movies, bad things happen. The sole claim to fame offered by FleshEater is that it is the pet project of Bill Hinzman, who was the graveyard ghoul in the original Night of the Living Dead. He wrote, directed and starred in this turkey, which mashes up NotLD with any generic Friday the 13th inspired slasher film and ends up as a mess. A dumbass farmer unearths a zombie, who breeds more zombies in the usual, bitey way. This troupe of flesh-loving undead systematically kill a bunch of completely unappealing teens during a camp out. In a departure from completely generic zombiedom (but well in line with generic slasherdom), the zombies all use weapons — pitchforks, a hatchet, etc. — which gives a little bit of variety to the killings. Things are set to get all apocalyptic up in this bitch when the local townsfolk pull out the guns and wipe them all out — or do they? Then the end rips off NotLD‘s ending — what a surprise. Apart from being slow, dull and dumb, it wasn’t bad. Just kidding, it was bad.

As an aside, I am pretty certain this was filmed in rural Pennsylvania. Something about the scenery, the mullets and the ready availability of firearms and Iron City beer just reminds me of my time there.

    Mullets? Here we call it hockey hair. Could have been filmed right here in my lil burg.
    I think that I’ll skip this one, too.
    Do you have one that I SHOULD watch?

    I know, I know: reading most of these reviews you’d think I hate zombie movies. I just haven’t got as many positive reviews up, partially because they are a little harder to write and partially because most of these movies are, in fact, crap. The best I’ve seen in recent time is REC. If you haven’t seen it, I’d highly recommend it. Also, Burial Ground: Nights of Terror, which I reviewed earlier on the site, is absolutely worth seeing. I’ll try to post some more positive reviews in the next week or so.

    I actually own REC. I tossed it aside after I brought it home..I still haven’t seen it! I will pop it in this weekend. :)

    You Canadians have it good, since REC released up there on DVD. Make sure you let me know what you thought. I am hoping to watch it again to refresh my memory and get a review up here shortly.

    I love how you phrased the zombies getting killed off as “getting all apocalyptic in this bitch”
