This DVD release improves immensely over Troma's original release. For one thing, this is a new master seemingly created by Ed Bishop (with some slight "improvements" here and there). This means that the "Where's a nice place to take a s---" line isn't truncated like on the original DVD. The psychedelic sequences also have some additional effects added to them. Aside from this, the disc comes with a bonus soundtrack CD, 45 minutes of interviews from 12 cast and crew members, a fun commentary track, original promo trailers, outtakes and deleted scenes from the R-rated video version of the film. Basically, if you're a fan of REDNECK ZOMBIES, you absolutely must own this release. And if you've never seen the film before, note that this is probably the best example of a 1980s shot-on-video film. It's hilarious, gory and an all-around good time.
know what the other viewers were expecting when they watched this fantastically horrible piece of garbage but if you go in watching with incredibly low expectations, like I did, you will be very happy. This movie is best viewed with a like minded friend so that someone is there to laugh when you make a third rate MST3K comment. If you like anything from Troma you must buy this movie.
Yes, the acting is bad, but the key is that it's not boring. Yes, the script isn't going to win any awards, but it's not boring. Yes, the gags... well, I think you see the pattern. This isn't a sophisticated movie--it never pretends or tries to be. It's just a *fun* movie. What I really don't understand are the bad reviews here by people who say they like campy horror movies. I don't doubt their sincerity or honesty, I just don't understand how they couldn't at least give this movie a pass.
So, what is so good about this movie in my opinion? Let me count the ways! (a cheesy movie deserves a somewhat cheesy review) First, I loved the sound effects and music. I don't like country music, but the theme for this movie is just awesome, and much of the other sounds in the movie emphasise the campiness of the movie, but in a good way. Second, this movie has a lot of funny and memorable jokes. One of my favorites is when an illiterate farmer is looking at a barrel of nuclear waste, and in trying to read what is on the side of the container, points at it and says "Do not... open till... Christmas," with the last word being represented by a nuclear symbol. This movie is full of such silly jokes and campy dialogue.Read more ›
