A doctor (Billy Zane) and his family stop in a small town during a festival. This was a mistake. Underneath the charm of small-town living a strange horror is about to burst forth. Tainted meat is going to affect the locals and turn them into zombies (or are they zombies?). Whatever they are, the crazed killers very quickly outnumber the unaffected. Zane quickly becomes the leader of the survivors. As they are besieged by the mad killers they work up a plan of escape and how to stop the menace from spreading. Will they succeed? Who will survive?

This is a tongue-in-cheek movie that works well on the absurd and comedy levels but is not really scary. But then scary was not really the goal of this film. Billy Zane is excellent and at his deadpan best as a doctor trying to deal with family, vacation, zombies, and killer hamburgers. If you thought a killer dessert topping was wild (The Stuff) then you will get a real kick out of marauding cuts of meat. Creative cinematography really helps drive the movie while blood and guts take only a minor role. If you are looking for a horror spoof then check this one out.

Monsters of another sort, the result of bad beef that has been tampered with by a desperate farmer who does receive his just deserts later rather than sooner. The Mad isn't a zombie movie, however much it tries to take advantage of the confusion. "The Mad" are people who have eaten tainted beef and as a result, they automatically turn into blood thirsty killers and partakers of human flesh. The gore is substantial. It is, however, played entirely for laughs. This is less a horror film, more a messy comedy about a doctor (Billy Zane) who spends the bulk of the film muttering his lines and purposely adding uncertainty about whether he's a real doctor or a former musician in an 80's rock band. The joke wears thin immediately, yet is endlessly repeated in the hope that it may prove funny through sheer repetition alone. The plot takes its good natured time getting to the point as we're first forced to watch endless bickering between dad and daughter, daughter and faux stepmom, dad and daughter's dopey boyfriend. They stop for lunch in the middle of nowhere at a fair of some sort. They plan to spend the night at the "Backwoods Bed & Breakfast." The endless yapping between these four people concerns sex, music, and "don't call me cupcake." They try to deliver all their lines deadpan, as though mass murder happening around them was just an annoying inconvenience. They will not be deterred from their bickering. If you enjoy this type of humor, eureka, there's a lot of it. And this is before they meet "the quiet inbred farmer type."

...then "The Mad" should be it. After recently watching a string of zombie movies that cannot be easily squeezed into the standard zombie-movie mold ("Undead," "Last of the Living," "Days of Darkness," "Dead Meat"), I can now add to it a zombie/comedy that also sits outside the box. "The Mad" is surreal in its execution - from the infra-red look of the scenery to the consumerism of the zombies to the off-the-wall characters and on up to the exquisite absent-mindedness of Billy Zane's character. And, best of all, it works. Together, these elements produce a tapestry as funny, as scary and as creepy as any zombie movie I've ever seen. The only let-down is that the mad cows do not rampage; they merely push one another aside to get to the special feed the farmer has given them; but, to make up for it, the meat patties they produce do rampage. Truly, this movie acts out The Smiths' signature song "Meat Is Murder" (of course, that song is nowhere to be found in the film, but it's there in spirit).

I got this movie on a whim, loved every minute of it.. it is your basic incredibly corny, tongue in cheek undead movie. Billy Zane is hilarious in his role, the surrounding actors seem to really understand that the movie is supposed to come across as fun and some of the scenes featuring Zane and his "daughter" carrying on a calm father daughter conversation as they walk into and out of numerous attacking zombies is more than worth the price of admission. And popcorn!
This movie is fun, has no lessons to be learned, carries no useful message, probably won't change your life.... but aren't those all good reasons to watch it ????

This movie is about beef that turns people into zombies.

I Bought it for my vast Zombie DVD collection, I watched it and loved it.
It was funny as hell and had me rolling on the floor laughing.

It is one of those movies, I will watch time and time again.
If you get a chance to watch it & you do... You won't be disappointed.
It will remain in my collection and up there with the best of them,
Zombieland, Day of the dead 1980 & others.

Hot girl, Zombies, weed & munchies! What more do you need :)

Maybe I'm being about a half star too generous with the flick, but then again maybe I'm not because after all it does have Billy Zane in it and I do love me some Billy Zane. Here he's the absolute antithesis of the amped up character he played in DEMON KNIGHT but it still works. Zane plays a rather quite, restrained medical doctor who is vacationing with his daughter Amy (Maggie Castle), her boyfried, and his own prospective second wife Monica (Shauna MacDonald) who is very much at odds with teenage Amy. Against his better judgment they stop at a small town where some sort of country fair seems to be taking place, his girlfriend read an article about the town in which it was referred to as "hillbilly nouveau"--very chic apparently, so there's no getting out of it.

What none of them know however, is that the $16.95 hamburger special made from local "free range" cattle is not what it seems and before long everybody who has eaten one is foaming at the mouth and attacking all those who haven't. Naturally this brings up the discussion of whether or not they are really zombies or not--a subject they decide to leave for another time. Ultimately they learn that all the tainted meat came from one area farm and they decide that some course of action should be taken, and all sorts of bloody comic mayhem ensues. There is one especially funny scene involving father/daughter bonding as they casually fight for their lives in a field of zombies that can justifiably be called classic.

Written by Kevin Hennelly and directed by John Kalagis, THE MAD has a few new twists to offer the genre if only in the form of characterization. Haven't you always wanted to see at least ONE person keep their head on straight and think rationally during a zombie attack? Well Zane's your boy.
