The effects were cool, but that's the only thing this movie has going for it. The acting is horrendous, and the story is pretty much non-existant, and doesn't make sense. It's incredibly corny, and some of the kills are over the top...which would work in a parody film, but doesn't work in this film because they're trying to present themselves as serious.
If you like to sit around and make fun of movies with your friends, then this is the prime candidate right here.
These are the notations on the DVD cover. Excuse me if I think "Night of the Living Dead" or "Evil Dead" still stand on the altar of independent horror icons. In fact, "Automaton Transfusion" has none of the endearing qualities that make independent horror so compelling; original story, new twist, a surprise or two and perhaps a little hint of "off-beat". I'm actually challenged to think of anything NOT derivative about this film. That said; if you've never seen a zombie horror film then perhaps some of this film's qualities might work for you. For the zombie veterans, you'll know where I'm coming from. Let me dismember this film so that I'm clear.
-SHAMEFUL LACK OF AN ORIGINAL THOUGHT
How's that for hacking into the jugular? See if any of this sounds familiar to you;
-Government experiment to keep dead soldiers fighting goes awry.
-Kill by head shots and infection by bites and scratches.
-Dead eat the living.
-The zombies can run fast.
-Use of a chainsaw to fight zombies.
I would bet you're familiar with about a dozen films that contain these ideas. I'm actually ok with that. George Romero's Zombie rules have been used pretty much as standard guidelines for decades. Fast zombies have been a trend for about the last 10 years or so. Chainsaws have become a standard horror convention. All of these ideas appear in plenty of good to excellent horror films. The problem here is that those films added some sort of new twist to the genre or were wildly entertaining. "So what's the big deal" you might say.
