The acting is atrocious. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about B-movie, indie level acting; but this was as if they simply pulled in random people off the street and gave them lines. The parts that were supposed to be serious were humorous, and the parts that were supposed to be humorous were embarrassingly awful.
That brings us to the filming itself. Like I said before, I am all about B-movie, indie level acting, and that is also so of the filming look and techniques. In the case of "Fistful of Brains," however, it looked as if they went out and purchased some beat-up camcorder from a pawn shop downtown and proceeded to film a horror movie with it. It's bad. Really bad. It makes the late '80s/early '90s Troma release "Redneck Zombies" look like a multi-million dollar Hollywood blockbuster of all things. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of "Redneck Zombies." Just seemed like a good example to make my point.
In truth, the only thing this travesty of a zombie film had going for it was the plot, which was horribly done by them but would definitely have potential in another filmmaker's hands.
Don't buy this film unless you're a glutton for disappointment. Personally, I can't even in good conscience add it to my upwards of two-hundred zombie film collection.
A sad day in the zombie genre, indeed.
A new preacher comes to town, who has strong sexual urges (males, females, horses). The sheriff had killed the old one, Harry Barry. The sheriff also keeps his step-son in jail. The twins create zombies by giving the people an elixir that makes them the living dead. Some zombies can run, others do a foot drag. Some can talk and reason, other are silent. If you note, there is a rebel flag behind the bar. There is also an America flag. Looks like it is the 50 star variety.
No nudity unless you count a fake rubber breast covered with blood.
