Before ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE, there was ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE! ADAM WEST (of TV's BATMAN) joins TIA CARRERE (WAYNE'S WORLD), FRANK DIETZ (BLACK ROSES) and The Legendary Rock Warrior JOHN MIKL "THOR" (ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE) in this macabre tale of voodoo and violence, terror and suspense, and revenge from beyond the grave!
Tony Washington (Thor) foils a robbery at a local grocery store only to be run over and killed by a group of savage suburban teens. But the horror has only just begun, for in the darkest recesses of Tony's backyard, a voodoo ceremony takes place which resurrects Tony into a superhuman zombie avenger. One by one, Tony's ruthless killers are graphically and brutally murdered as the undead Tony takes his gory revenge! The stage is set for a bone-chilling climax as the authorities (Adam West and Frank Dietz) finally come face to face with the dead rising from the grave.
Featuring ACE OF SPADES by LEMMY AND MOTORHEAD on the soundtrack, as well as PANTERA and GIRLSCHOOL, ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE is a heavy metal trip of zombie horror vengeance!

This is in spite of having a famous and talented cast. Adam West plays a police captain who is actually a murder. Lovely Tia Carrere is a high school girl. She was only 19 when she was talked into making this horrible movie. Shawn Levy, who later went on to become a big deal Hollywood director, is a nasty high school boy. And Canadian body builder, rock and roller and actor Jon Mikl Thor is the murder victim and revenge bent Zombie.
This might have been a good movie with better cinematography, or better writing or better acting or better…. Well you get it. Amateur night doesn’t begin to cover it. The script is nonsense. The makeup on the Voodoo practitioners looks like a Canadian film school idea of what Caribbean Voodoo priests might look like rather than what they actually look like. The director has long views of things like cars driving around or people walking around which use up film time without advancing the plot. The night scenes are so dark that you can’t see what if anything is happening. And the investigator wears shades at night.
The only reason to see this is to have a gander at Tia Carrere at age 19. Even the conjuring of the Zombies is horrible. I generally like the traditional Voodoo priestess sort of thing, all very old school, but the director (Jack Bravman) even made this usually appealing aspect of a Zombie flick unpalatable. This remarkable inept director entered the world in Asbestos, Quebec. His last directorial outing was “Night of the Dribbler”. This is apparently a horror flick and not one of the many cheep adult films Bravman produced or directed. It is hard to tell the difference from the title.
This miserable one brain movie lasts one and a half hours. It is un-rated but might be rated C for crap. It is not scary, it is not gross, it has no naked people so as far as that goes it might get a PG-13 and only that because of about 8 murders.
A stupendously awful 1987 Canadian zombie film that co-stars Adam West and Tia Carrea but not even those 2 actors could save this mess of a film. This movie has a simple story yet the acting with some stuff are terrible, the kills are lame and the pacing is slack. I rented this movie when i was 6 when it came out on video and thought it blew, yet it still does suck now but luckily i'm glad it was riffed on MST3K as it's one of my favorite episodes ever but the actual movie is a lifeless loser.
The DVD has a nice transfer but like they say you can't polish a turd and the extras are interviews with trailer.
Zombie Nightmare opens up with a voodoo priestess resurrecting a dead meat-head followed by the full playing of Ace of Spades by Motorhead. Yeah Yeah Fire Fire! From there we're introduced to a car packed with street toughs led by Joey Lawrence's cousin and Eddie Haskle's brother...yeah that sounds like one tough crew huh? Eddie's brothers main squeeze just happens to be a young poorly acted Tia Carrere long before Wayne Campbell met her in a little sweet shop at the edge of town. The crew winds up doing a little hit and run action giving us our main zombie of the evening. Once he's brought back to like he exacts revenge, very laughably, snapping 2 necks and racking up a body count of 5 including the mustached Adam West.
What a beauty the MST3K version of Zombie Nightmare was. They added so much charm to the already hilarious acting, awful fight scenes, zombie murders, and all around terribly written plot. For the true Zombie fans out there this would be a complete nightmare, which is probably why they titled it what they did, but for us it was absolutely perfect. In no way does the movie have any sense of direction or purpose but delivers on all B cylinders with more then a handful of laughs. It will leave you in tears and sheer disillusion which just happens to be a perfect combo platter. It even has to be closed out the only classic way we know...yeah Drive In Totals, you got that straight!
