Product Description

Port Gamble, a quaint little coastal town known for its conservative residents and old fashioned, small town ways. An idyllic, scenic location, full of beautiful surroundings and tradition American values. All of which are about to be sent to hell with the arrival of a toxic, rotting corpse washed up upon one of its celebrated beaches. The community of Port Gamble is about to have its face ripped off, chewed up and spat out as the neighbourhood begins to transform into rabid, flesh eating zombies. Is it germ warfare? Is it something more sinister? Who can save Port Gamble from its bone crunching, gut spewing doom? Could it be Frida, the sultry, Iranian/American college drop out? Joe, the psycho basement dweller? Apocalypse obsessed Reverend Harris? Or the unhinged Mayor Burton? One thing is for sure, it’s taken a bunch cannibalistic corpses to bring any life to this town and if it’s brains they’re after, it’s going to be a long night for the living dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing with enough gore 30 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this one as a punt as I didn't know anything about it. I had low expectations but was pleasantly suprised.

The basic story is set in a small town in the States & then for some reason, there is a Zombie outbreak. Given that most of the heroes were from what would be considered minority groups, I'm sure that the film was trying to make a point. Unfortunately, I couldn't really work out what it was.

The good news is that it had some quite amusing moments (I might even go as far as to say funny) and there was enough gore to keep the interest of the more serious Zombie enthusiasts.

As with most of these films, it is best viewed late at night after a couple of drinks. Ignore the inconsistencies and you should find it quite enjoyable. If I was going to watch a Zombie film more than once (which I don't often do), this would probably be a contender.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad taste done good! 22 May 2011
By slydee
Format:DVD
It really isn't half as bad as some of these reviews make out, It is done in a bad taste way (that's the style!?), and its done well (if you know what I mean!). Your main characters are the Gay couple and the Iranian girl. They are the most normal people in the sleepy little town, and its filmed from their perspective. The reason the Iraian girl is refered to as Iraqi, is just a play on the townsfolks ignorance of her nationality, and the couple being subjected to hompobia is just showing up the townsfolks twisted backward view of gays. It's all a micky-take out of the crazy-but "normal" townsfolks. Yes it's a comedy horror, it doesn't take itself too seriously, but it makes some funny observations about stereotyped prejudices and their solutions for it, electric chair therapy anyone?. And it is very comedy gore, there are some really funny/sick moments,-don't help kids across the road. Watch it-you may like it!

2.0 out of 5 stars let down by very poor acting 7 Sep 2012
Format:DVD
I happen to like zombie films and my collection houses varied styles of zombie film from the original Night of the living Dead to Resident Evil, but this lets down the whole genres when you get awful acting which then makes it a struggle to watch the film all in one go, the films is lame in the plot, it's been done before only stacks better, we need something fresh, this lacks what it should have had and I found i only wanted one of the characters to live, and she did, the others well, they just weren't likeable characters that you care about

3.0 out of 5 stars Zombies of Mass Destruction fails to detonate 25 July 2012
Format:DVD
Another DVD that I was given over the festive period was Zombies of Mass Destruction, a horror comedy written and directed by Kevin Hamedani and starring Janette Armand, Doug Fahl and Cooper Hopkins.

Described as a "political zomedy" and with a cover that doesn't scream high production value, I was a little wary when I started watching this. To be fair, I was pleasantly surprised! Filmed on location in Port Gamble, Washington, USA, the town seems like a picture perfect little slice of Americana and is an ideal location for proceedings as set out by Hamedani, who introduces commentary throughout Zombies of Mass Destruction on the darker side of America's conservative views: homophobia, right-wing Christianity; and Islamophobia and fear of terrorism in the aftermath of 9/11.
Additionally, ZMD has what I would consider a cool retro soundtrack that very much put me in mind of themes from John Carpenter's movies.
Much to my delight, the special effects were largely of the non-CGI variety and well done for the most part. Even when used, CGI was employed sparingly.

Unfortunately, in the first quarter of the movie, ZMD goes for cheap scares with plenty of "boo!" moments which again, are reminiscent of 80's horror flicks. My disappointment didn't end there either... The performances from many of the actors was a little like the acting I'd expect to see on a US daytime soap. Janette Armand, Doug Fahl and Cooper Hopkins; and Bill Johns as the pious Reverend Haggis definitely propped up the whole affair.
My major issue with ZMD is the fact that it tries to encompass too many themes within its sub 90 minute running time; and for me, making this a comedy was a mistake.
