5.0 out of 5 stars Mini-review from The G.O.R.E. Score!, 22 Sep 2011
This review is from: Stag Night of the Dead [DVD] (DVD)
If you enjoy zombies, comedy, guns, and girls (and not necessarily in that order), you'll be genuinely glad that you checked out "Stag Night of the Dead."

The plot of "SNotD" is a fun one: set in the U.K., the story follows soon-to-be-wed Dean and his stag party (better known as a bachelor party to us Yankees across the pond), with a stripper in tow; they move from the ho-hum, routine stag party goings-on of strippers whipping the near-naked, upside-down groom to the more exciting, exhilarating, and dangerous activity of Zomball, a secretive and probably-not-totally-legal extreme sport where the participants shoot zombies for recreation. A couple of catches with Zomball, though: the guns used to shoot the undead are electric-pulse rifles (one of the characters even references the weapons as "Stargate rejects") that only stun the zombies for 5 minutes, even though the rifles take 10 minutes to reload; and there are three main rules of Zomball ("Stay together," "Look out for the Recharge Stations," and "Never humiliate a zombie"), all of which the stag party members manage to break pretty damn quickly. As you might guess, things start to go awry, and the party starts to lose members (in more cringe-inducing ways than one).

"Stag Night of the Dead" is a one-of-a-kind zombie viewing experience: a movie that dares to be different, and the result is infinitely enjoyable. It is easily a movie that could be ripe for a big-budget Hollywood remake, as Hollywood so loves to do with "foreign" movies it likes. If you like to watch zombies on film and feel conflicted because you're laughing as you're screaming, this one should be right up your alley.
