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.

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.Read more ›
And, in ZMD’s case, it’s actually not too bad. Yes, it’s a B-movie, but then 90% of zombie films are, therefore you’re probably not expecting a ‘mega-budget’ epic of a movie. So, this does manage to deliver – it’s pretty horrific and what little budget they have is used well on some nice/gruesome zombie and victim kills.
ZMD also has another unusually plus point for a B-movie – the central characters are actually pretty different (remember, we’re talking horror B-movies here). We have a girl of Middle Eastern descent and a gay couple. And this worked. Their originality made them quite likeable and easy to root for.
But it’s not all good. What starts out pretty excellent sort of stalls midway through the film. Even though the main characters are good, those who they meet aren’t. It’s like the writers wrote the characters into situations which separated from the main threat element, i.e. the zombies, so they had to introduce all sorts of nut-job characters to pose a new threat.
Plus the film isn’t that original. It seems to borrow elements from at least five different zombie films. I counted the basement lock-in from Night of the Living Dead, the boarding-up-the-church from Return of the Living Dead, the situations of Shaun of the Dead and the tone of Braindead.
It’s a pity the overall story isn’t a little more focus.Read more ›
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.
