Bonus Feature: Making of featurette
Top Customer Reviews
The movie starts at some period after the world's population has been decimated by the Great Epidemic. A small band of survivors (mad scientists, unhinged soldiers, and our bickering heroes) are encamped in a safety zone as the undead walk the earth and the other known survivors include a group of ruthless fascists and a deranged painter. Our heroes leave base to collect more specimens for the scientist to perform his experiments on. On the way, they meet these foes and discover a young girl who may be of some import.Read more ›
The plot is a little more involved, but that is basically it. I enjoyed the special zombie effects, the "living" body parts and large amounts of blood. The characters were not likeable, in fact you ended up hating the one guy. The film injects humor, at one point our he-man is singing to "Wham!" and feels he must explain that he is not gay. However the film has too many points that drag that could have been more effective with some decent dialouge.
This is another great zombie film to come out of Italy. How do those guys do it?
Parental Guide: F-bomb, nudity.
Like so many other hum drum, bad zombie movies, Eaters suffers from a poor script which makes for a lack of character development. Instead of a handful of hopeful survivors trying to survive, we are given a cast of characters, who for the most part, are just annoying stereotypes that pop up during the movie with no rhyme or reason, but to just add time and shock to a poorly written movie ... the mad scientist who really LOVES his work, the macho military "G. I. Joe" who likes to live dangerously, the weird artist (who should have went by the name Dali instead of Warhol), the inbreed hicks (who`s idea was it to allow these fine specimens of life into their safe haven?), the crazy religious cult leader and a group of ridiculous neo-Nazis led by a "Mini-Me" Hitler. Sure, there might be a lot lost on the fact that the movie is dubbed with heavy melodramatic voices, but the movie's dialog was super weak and for the most part unrealistic! ... It seems the writers of Eaters was more interested in making a movie full of weird characters and gore... It's got Uwe Boll's name on it so I should have known better!
Now, with all that said... this is a budget movie that doesn't really look like one. I though the story was interesting, just not written or thought out to have an even / realistic flow! The special effects and makeup was top notch and the actors were great actors... again, maybe it was the dubbing that really turned me off from this movie...Read more ›
This Italian zombie film presented by Uwe Boll is your average B zombie flick but it is worth a watch. Now Boll did not have anything to do with the making of this flick he is just doing his presenter thing here helping get it out there. Now for someone like me who enjoys Boll’s films [for the good or bad] I had to have this. Now admittedly I would have got this any way for the zombies but Boll’s name on it made it a must have.
This film follows two soldiers that work for a scientist who is working on zombies after the epidemic hit the world. So they are off one day to hunt some down for him as well as other things. Along the way they come across all kinds of characters including a girl who they help. This leads to some not s nice types going after them that may or may not have ties to Hitler, maybe. So they are off trying to survive a world not only of zombies but of neo Nazis as well.
This is your typical B movie fun filled flick with zombies and things going boom. The soldiers are fun and the back and forth between them made the movie for me, they reminded me of a few guys I know. The killing and zombie action is there but that kinda goes against what was supposed to happen. As other reviews have pointed out why do they destroy every zombie they come across if they needed to catch some. That is just one of the fun things about this flick.
Written by Germano Tarricone and Marco Ristori who also directed with Luca Boni “Eaters” is one of those movies that you will love or hate based on your appreciation of B flicks. I liked it as I am sure most who know me would know. The zombies look cool and the action and acting was what I expected it would be. Also it should be noted that these guys made another film together right after this called “Zombie Massacre” this time with Uwe Boll on as a producer, I am on my way to that now.

This is one movie that was so bad, and dis-coherent that it should never be viewed again. Your time would be wasted better by watching the sky for the impending alien invasion.Published on March 20, 2013 by USMBRENT
