Product Description

Wandering a zombie wasteland, Matool survives by his wits and animal instinct, often employing his trusty hammer and gigantic nails to fend off the ravenous hordes of flesh-eating undead. But when he is kidnapped by a mysterious couple, Matool must rely on an entirely different weapon in his arsenal to survive... Written & directed by Scott Phillips (screenwriter of DRIVE), THE STINK OF FLESH is a no-holds-barred splatterfest featuring non-stop action and buckets of gore.

Most people don't like backyard movies. Movies you can't even call low budget, they're micro-budgeted. If you haven't seen one yet then you probably won't like your first. It's hard to get past low production values, and many times people buy or rent one expecting a 'real' movie.

That being said, I love backyard movies. Movies like Meat Market, I, Zombie, Enter Zombie King all entertain me vastly. I love seeing what people can do with the resources they have at hand, and how they don't let money restrictions hold back their creativity.

That being said, Stink of Flesh creates a very unusual situation and progresses it. The characters are pretty cookie cutter with the exception of the couple and the wife's sister(s). They are the source of all the tension and the fulcrum for the action. What really stands out is the action. There's tons of good gore: impressive blood fountains from stabbings and biting, great squib effects for head shots, and really well coreographed action sequences. The zombies themselves are a little lackluster. they're just make-up effects, no rubber masks or prostectics, a lot like the original Night or Dawn of the Dead zombies. Most of the acting is par for the course, but the actor playing Nathan the husband is really good, very beleivable and tragic. Too much of the film was shot in the day time though. All in all, this is close to as good as backyard films get, but if you don't like micro-budget flicks, steer clear.

This is a great little movie. If you're a zombie fan, it's definitely worth your time and money.

For the most part, these are Romero zombies: Shoot 'em in the head types.

It's the survivors who are different. Who expects swingers to also be survivors??? I never had before, but THE STINK OF FLESH changed my mind. Certainly it would take people willing to 'think outside the box' to survive the pending zombie apocalypse.

My wife agreed that this was the rarity: a movie where you CAN'T predict what is going to happen next. Wow!

The acting is mixed. Some of the co-stars seem lucky to have remembered their lines. That's okay. The main characters do a fine job and the gore is reasonably realistic.

And I think I'll have nightmares of Dottie before I'll have nightmares of zombies...!

This is a pretty decent flick. The acting is a little spotty in places, but is made up for by the leads. The special effects are suprisingly good given the budget. The story would've worked just as well without zombies, in my opinion, but being a zombie fan I won't argue at their inclusion.

Before you sit down to watch this, just be aware of what you are getting. This is not a big-budget Hollywood movie, so don't expect it to be.

PS: A note to reviewer J. Kramer - I'd say the acting and humor are more checkersy or backgammony than chessy. Or perhaps they're just a little cheesy. :)

Ok there is no major plot , in that sense.... how the zombies came to be, where they came from, or why these people are where they are etc......

Anyway thats not the main objective. Now I new what i was getting and what it was , a very low budget indie zombie film.

A heads up on a couple things

1- The acting while its a low budget its acting is a bit chessy but not bad, just basically your avg low budget acting. But not at all dissapointing.Out of 10 stars it gets 6.

2- The ZOMBIES- The make is very good, surprisingly good for the budget they worked with. Out of 10 stars 7.5.

3-GORE- Plenty of it and very pleasing and well done, was definitly what made the movie.Out of 10 stars its gets 9.

4-Action -there are alot of Zombie vs Human fights which is great.Out of 10 stars its gets 9.

5-Humor-Not chessy and not dry, very cool and funny very enjoyable.Out of 10 stars its gets 9.

Long story short amzons review is off the back cover and describes the movie as it is. This is a great movie to have. Me I love a good Zombie flick, and if you do also get it. You know you are getting a low budget indie flick so expect what you get, and what you will get is a very fun action packed bloody zombie flick that has plenty of laughs and plenty of gore. Being a fan of 70's and 80's flciks I would consider my self a solid judge of what is good and what is not, if you see my other reviews you will see the type of movies im into and probably get the idea of when I say get this flcik, that means no ?'s . Go out and get it you wont be dissapointed.

Jerry Springer with zombies!!

1) ACTING: As always with a lot of indie flicks, the acting is usually hit or miss. For the most part, the leads in this movie were really good in their parts and there really wasn't anyone that seemed out of place, or distracting to the viewer. And Matool needs his own movie series!

2) PRODUCTION: This was surprisingly good. Especially the zombies, which was nice. Normally, indie movie zombies consist of white face / dark eyes, with little to no facial applications, to almost regular looking skin tones with lots of fake blood, and no facial applicaiotns. Here, attention (and, obviously a good chunk of the budget) was spent on the zombies' make up and appearances. As far as low budget indies go, this one was pretty good. The script was tight (except for the "quick! Let's tie up all the loose ends!" at the movie's end), the subject matter--never seen before in a zombie movie, and the filming, editing, and soundtrack were okay as well.

3) ZOMBIES: Other than the appearance of "hyper-zombies," (think Snyder's DotD remake) nothing really new was brought to the zombie genre, and they did what most zombies usually do! (Except for some zombie-sex, but you'll have to see that for yourself!)

4) THE CAUSE: Not mentioned.

5) NUDITY: A movie about swingers with no nudity? C'mon!!

Not bad, not bad at all...this is how low budget indies should be done. This was a fun little romp into "alternative lifestyles" land, with zombies brought along for the ride. I think that the production team really got the most out of their minimal budget. Many homages to other movies fill this movie, and I feel, add to the fun of it all.
