The best part about Media Blasters release of the "Zombie Pack part 2" is the price.
I bought this at a best buy for under fifteen bucks,and can't complain,as the company delivers good,quality prints to even the worst films.
And boy are these bad.
If your a gorehound and/or a zombie enthusiast,than by all means,check this set out.
Most others should run away.
Three films are packaged within this set,and are as follows:
Burial Ground(1980)-One of the most notorious Italian gore films ever made,features some terrific looking zombies and nice atmosphere,but almost no character development or much of a story.
It is,however,unintentionally funny.
The "child" in the film is actually a young man in his early 20s with bad make-up on(!),whose sole purpose is to have an incestous relationship with his stacked mother!
The most famous scene is the one where the child turned zombie sucks on one of his mom's big breasts and decides to bite!
Not a good film.
Zombie Holocaust(1980)-With a title like that....how can you go wrong!?
Actually it's a pretty uninvolving gore piece,originally titled the much cooler,"Dr Butcher M.D" and is a grindhouse favorite.
The idea was to combine the Italian zombie film with the Italian Cannibal film,except with less than stellar results.
There's some nice nudity,Ian Mcculloch from Lucio Fulci's "Zombie" is in it,and it's pretty gory,too.
Ain't much of a plot:Cannibal cult loose in New York City.
Doctors trace cult to island,encounter zombies and mad doctor,become experiments.
Mediocre at best.
Flesh Eater(1987)-The third film in the set,and the only American made one,is also the worst.
Bill Hinzman,who portrayed the "graveyeard zombie" in Night of the Living Dead(1968),directs and stars in his own zombie epic!
He portrays,basically the same ghoul from Romero's film,except he's found buried in an ancient metal coffin(?) and wearing his best sunday clothes!
(Now considering,that the people in the movie believe this to be hundreds of years old,how does that account for his modern dress?).
The typical group of stupid kids decide to party in the woods(!) and get attacked by the ravenous zombie unleashed!
The gore is TERRIBLE and the acting is not much better.
There are no characters at all,just people waiting to get killed.
In fact,these kids make the "Friday the 13th" kids look like Brain Surgeons!
To add insult to injury,Hinzman steals entire scenes from Romero's film,including the siege in a farmhouse,the demise of the last surviving character and so on.
It also seems that Hinzman has transparently cast himself,as the groper of many a young babe's boobs!
Hmmmmmmmmmm.....sound like a great film to you?
Nothing to go crazy about here,but this set is fun viewing for a lost Saturday night,coupled with good friends,alcohol and junk food.
