Awful. There is only so much bad acting you can take, I mean come on. I've seen old movies and I've seen cheap B-movies, but this... this is in a class all its own. I have seen better performances at a elementary school play. I checked out as soon as a zombie used an AT4 to shoot down a helicopter containing a "rescue party" of three people wearing their father's clothes (honestly the costume were 10 sizes too big).Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of intelligent zombies, Land of the Dead did it best, in my opinion, with the zombies experiencing a gradual evolution in intelligence, but a zombie shooting a helicopter down is just ridiculous. To top it off, when they land they all say "I'm alive" in the most apathetic way possible, with no injuries might I add! I honestly believe that all of the 4 and 5 star reviews are members of the cast or people involved with the movie, that or I just don't know a good movie when I see one (quite possible).
Bottom line, this movie is a disgrace to every zombie movie ever made. Don't buy it, don't rent it, if somebody offers you money to watch it then walk away.
This joke of a movie got all 4 and 5 star reviews. Come on give me a break!!! They got my $1.99 don't let them get yours. I knew from the fact that this "movie" didn't have a trailer that it is low budget. I didn't hold it against them because two of my favorite horror movies are the original Evil Dead and the first Paranormal Activity. Those are great horror movies made on the cheap. This had CRAPPY acting, plot, special effects,you name it! It had no redeeming value . Save your time and your two bucks!!!!!!!!
So it's not "Night of the Dead." It's not even "Armies of Darkness." But it could be a weird kind of cult classic in its own way. Favorite character: the disembodied living zombie head. Least favorite part: the weird zombie voices and psychedelic visuals. What makes it worth the price of admission: the Oregon location, especially the creepy, abandoned Oregon State Hospital. Fun!
You've...you've got to be kidding me. I want my two dollars back. The only reason I rated this two stars is because there are very VERY few choice moments but the lack of style or acting talent completely subtracts from it. Do not be swayed. Or, if your going to waste your money, get really REALLY drunk first.
I was always told not to trust a person that wears a belt with suspenders. Of course one of the leads here is doing just that. Ok, now that we have this out of the way, let me give you an authentic point of view of this film. I am someone who enjoys the horror genre and more specifically the ‘zombie’ sub-category. While I have seen many reviews that appear to be penned from the perspective of some first year NYU student speaking about how this style is a departure from the director oeuvre. Let me be honest, the acting was wet cardboard, the character development was nil, the cinematography was, hell there wasn’t any and the effects were out of the meat counter at Costco and relied upon camera filters and rancid colors to somehow add to what they believe made some sort of grotesque enhancement.
This film, for all its ostensible hype here in ‘reviewland’ was not at all what it was built up to be. I can go for a low budget flick from time to time but what I cannot abide is being taken for two bucks by a film that truly had no redeeming qualities and even less energy. Please, do not waste your time.
Flesh of My Flesh is a truly unique and interesting zombie film. The premise revolves around a group of researchers (played by Heather Rose Walters, Gil Luna, and Tara Walker) who are entrapped at a research facility as a zombie apocalypse ensues and closes in on them. While there is a lot of blood and guts, there is also an intellectual interplay among the characters at the facility as well as a unique and powerful social commentary between the social differences of the humans and the flesh-eating zombies. This is all potently revealed by a shocking and disturbing ending you will not soon forget. Flesh of My Flesh makes the most of a low-budget by the high-quality performances of the cast as well as utilizing fear-inducing footage within the facility, and eventually, the beauty of Oregon in the outdoor scenes. This is not your typical zombie film, and that is exactly why I liked it. This is truly a entertaining, unique and innovative spin on the genre. It is well-worth watching!
