If you enjoyed the previous novels of Bryan Smith you will certainly enjoy this one. The basic plot is this. The year is 1987. Teens, Wayne and Steve are on a mission to rescue Wayne's girl friend Melissa from the Southern Illinois Music Re-Education Center. SIMRC is a kind of de-programming center for teens into the Heavy Metal lifestyle. The SIMRC is ran by the cruel mistress Sybil Huffington and other twisted religious zealots. Wayne and Steve must break Melissa out before she endures further brutal humiliations...and then there are the zombies. This book at 118 pages is a very fun read. Smith cleverly titles each of his chapters after songs from the 70s and 80s Metal and Punk genres. Smith also inspires rock and roll nostalgia by referencing the 1980s pop culture landscape. He immerses the reader in the atmosphere of the B horror film and masterfully narrates his story with a sense of absurdity and poetic irony.

I've read a few Bryan Smith books and for me, he is hit or miss. I'm happy to say that Smith's latest book by Deadite Press is a full-fledged hit. If you grew up nearly worshipping Romero's zombie films along with Return of the Living Dead, then this book is for you. Lots of winks to the reader throughout the story made it even more enjoyable. It has your basic plot, sure, but it moves so fast and with such inspired energy, you can't help but get sucked in and root for the heroes. And while the first half is bit more fun than the second half, the wild frenzy of violence should keep you reading long into the night.

My only real disappointment was with Deadite Press's copy editing. If they can't take the time to clean up punctuation, perhaps they are releasing too many titles. It's a simple process, guys. READ the damn manuscript slowly one time and you will find the errors! With that out of the way, I wholeheartedly recommend "Rock And Roll Reform School Zombies". This book is a great introduction for new readers to experience Bryan Smith. You've got likable characters, ruthless villains, lots of gore, kinky sex, and zombies. What more could you ask for?

They just don't understand their own kids and the need to be able to express themselves. They want their kids to grow up to be clones of themselves. And as long as you have parents like that, you will have the need for schools like the Southern Illinois Music Re-Education Center, a private institution dedicated to brainwashing the young adults placed in their care by frustrated parents; however, if those parents only knew the atrocities that were being inflicted upon their children--psychological abuse, rape, and murder--they just might regret their decision to force their children to conform by any means necessary.

This is the setting for Bryan Smith's Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies, which in itself might seem bad enough, especially for those confined within its walls, but all hell is about to break loose.

Melissa Campbell doesn't think things could get any worse. Torn away from her boyfriend and enrolled by her parents in the Southern Illinois Music Re-Education Center, she never expected to be raped by one of her teachers. She's the lucky one because at least she didn't catch the eye of the headmistress. If she had, she might very well be six feet under, a journey one of her housemates has already made, and another who is in the process of making that journey. You see, not only does the headmistress have an eye for the young ladies, she has a taste for hookers and a taste for murder, the ultimate climax in her twisted sex games. Not wanting to face her attacker again, Melissa sneaks a phone call to her boyfriend, pleading with him to come get her and take her away, but afterward she doesn't think that he's going to come through for her, so she has to rely on her one friend in the house to help her get out of there.

Judge a book by its cover and you just might hit the jackpot. That's certainly the case with Bryan Smith's "Rock and Roll Reform School Zombies." The torso of a female zombie missing a chunk of her arm and playing an electric guitar? Bring it on!

After finishing the book, you'll realize that it was basically what you expected but much more fun and creative. As a bonus, the author will take you on a ride back to the 80s that includes the best heavy metal had to offer during that decade (think AC/DC), all the attitude from the blockbuster movies of the day (picture your favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger or Jean-Claude Van Damme one-liners) and even a cameo by an Atari gaming console. Sprinkle some classic George A. Romero on top of that and add a load of dark humor enveloped in social critique and what you get is a book worth reading just for fun.

The premise is simple: Melissa is stuck in the Southern Illinois Music Re-education Center, a reform school for heavy metal lovers and rebellious youth. After putting up with a lot of abuse from Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin-like characters, she calls her boyfriend, Wayne, and asks him to help her break out. Wayne and his friend Steve decide to pull the stunt with the right soundtrack and two unloaded guns. Simultaneously, a meteor falls near the Southern Illinois Music Reeducation Center and the victims of the school's headmistress, a uptight conservative nutcase with a penchant for strangling prostitutes after enjoying their company, turn into zombies, crawl out of their secret graves and invade the SIMRC.

Smith is a sharp writer that pulls no punches and his dark humor is all over this book. The real brilliance of the novel comes from the social critique that underlines the entire text.
