SYNOPSIS

Dionne Talbott and her husband, Joe Bryant, own and operate a family vineyard. After yet another failed crop, Joe wants to give up on their dream and sell the vineyard. Dionne solicits the help of her mother Audra, a practicing witch, who casts a spell on the farm. The following year they have such a bountiful harvest that they hire an old friend, Professor Frank, to help them pick the grapes. Professor Frank arrives with four college students to join him over the weekend. While working, they begin to notice phenomenal growth rates for the vines. Professor Frank ventures into the woods to investigate the water supply after their neighbor disappears. Dionne becomes suspicious and confronts her mother about the exact nature of the spell. Audra finally admits to her and Joe the potential threat it brings: the vegetation may attack people and turn them into zombies! They immediately summon the four students inside the house for their own safety. After Joe finds Professor Frank's bag in the woods, they reach the conclusion that he may be a zombie. Their fears are compounded when their missing neighbor emerges as a zombie and attacks Joe and Dionne. They retreat to the house only to realize that it has become a prison. Unable to flee or call for help, they must stand and fight the vegan zombies the only way they can: by concocting a counter spell and face the zombies in their own fields.

This movie was strange. There were witches, zombies and lesbian coeds and even they werent enough to save it. I watched from the beginning to the end and it really didnt do much for me. Vegan Zombies were more along the line of grape zombies. One fun thing about the movie was the grapes of wrath. The grapes were just very angry. Regardless, if you have nothing better to do and have some time to waste between other movies you can watch this. Otherwise it is a pass. Unfortunate too because it had a decent premise.

A more suitable title would have been ATTACK OF THE ALCOHOLIC ZOMBIES, since the film takes a much more critical look at the effects of alcoholism than it does on meat-eating. After years of failed crops, a desperate wife turns to witchcraft to revive the grape harvest for her struggling husband. The vines return, but the juice from their fruit transforms all who drink it in to winethirsty zombies who attack anyone that has had a drink! VEGAN ZOMBIES' goofy B-movie plot compliments the title, but is derailed by the seriousness of the acting and filming. It has trouble deciding if it is a silly spoof or a socially conscious metaphor, especially when it shares just as many thematic links with NIGHT OF THE LIVING as it does with TROLL 2. Townsend makes the most of his inexperienced actors, colorful settings, and ambitious camera work, which borrows generously from genre classics like THE EVIL DEAD. A lighter tone and increased vegan zombie action would have benefited this small film, but for the budget, it makes a valid effort at creating something unique and significant that Indie Horror fans are sure to enjoy.

This movie is a poorly written, poorly directed, poorly acted,
micro-budget horror film. The attempts at comedy fall incredibly flat.
The plot, such as it is, takes forever to pick up, and when it finally
does things just get worse.

With a name like "Attack of the Vegan Zombies!" it's obvious that the
film does not take itself too seriously. However, even with that in
mind this movie fails on every level.

The special effects are laughable, character motivation jumps randomly
from one scene to the next, the comic relief is forced and unfunny, the
horror elements are clichéd and not even remotely frightening.

The positive reviews posted here that suckered me into believing that
this was potentially a clever horror spoof must be written by people
involved with the film. You have been warned.

Great idea, great acting, great production value and crap directing. Unless you get excited by people sitting and talking, noting happens that's even interesting till almost 55 min. into the movie, seriously? Man I really wish this lived up to its potential, not even close. Watch something like "Dead Snow", or "The Horde" is you want a decent spin on a zombie movie. Don't bother with this mess.

"Attack of the Vegan Zombies!" is a slowly paced tale of witchcraft, zombies ("Zero trans fats has never been so deadly!"), and bad horticultural practices. The film is set on a family vineyard where the harvest is failing again. The acting is sometimes painful to watch, and the interpersonal conflicts often make little sense, but you probably could have guessed that when you picked up an independent movie with the words "vegan" and "zombies" right there in the title. In essence the couple who owns the place does much emoting about the repeated crop failures, at which point the wife reveals that both she and her mother are witches and before you know it they are conjuring up a spell for bountiful grapes. Hint: you may think the references to alcohol consumption are gratuitous padding, but fans of foreshadowing should take note.

Meanwhile as part of a university program (?) a couple of nerdy guys and a couple of hot cheerleader-types show up to help out at the vineyard. While the girls are making commentary that makes it clear they think a weekend without cellphone signal is worse than the holocaust, the boys are blathering on about the pH being abnormal in the grape crop. ("Not grapes on steroids!") It will come as no shock that this presages the arrival of the zombie grape monster and the only thing able to stop it is those meddling kids. I get the use of horror movie stereotypes in these B-movies, but the nerds are particularly annoying here (there is a great argument about which women are less attractive, Klingon or Ferengi), not that the girls are any more interesting. There are a lot of blown lines (Think they'll reshoot?

Attack of the Vegan Zombies seemingly ignores the very nature of the zombie as a flesh-feaster, yet somehow pulls off a fine Indie horror film.

Synopsis:
Joe (Jim Townsend) is a struggling vineyard owner who can't catch a break. Bad weather, dry soil and other hindrances, both explainable and unexplainable, prevent him from having a good grape harvest and realizing his dream of a good life in the country. His loving and supportive wife Dionne (Christine Egan) does her best to be supportive and encourage her husband, but it's no use... Joe is ready to give it all up and takes solace in liquor, though he gave it up years ago.

Dionne, not one to whither away like a raisin on the vine, decides to take matters into her own hand and consults her mother (H. Lynn Smith), a witch from way back. Dionne too, complains mother, also has "the gift" and foolishly decided to turn her back on the old ways and go for the life of a vineyard owner's wife - but that doesn't stop her from helping her daughter cast a powerful spell to encourage the grapes to flourish and save the vineyard. Just a bit of blood from the now passed-out Joe and the spell is complete.

The next year the vines are lush, packed with grapes bursting with juice, and it appears that a happy ending is in store... but the vines seem to have a mind of their own and will stop at nothing to quench their unearthly thirst.

Thoughts:
Everything about Attack of the Vegan Zombies is all wrong, right from the start. Just the concept of a vegan zombie is just stupid, and zombie aficionados wouldn't be criticized for turning their back from the beginning... but wait.
