Forest Of Zombies, not a lot of fear.
on 14 March 2015
When the government spray an experimental herbicide over a forest meanwhile a group of people who are growing dope in the forest get covered in the stuff and turn into flesh hungry zombies.
Toxic Zombies, aka- Forest Of Fear the title used here in the UK when it was banned as a video nasty- is a fairly average zombie film. The gore being a zombie picture you would think was going to be strong with blood, guts and severed limbs everywhere, but it has to be said it isn't an overly gory movie, yes there is violence but not I would say worthy of being banned. The biggest problem with the film is boredom, you just can't shake the feeling of I seen this done before (and better), there isn't anything to set this apart from any of a dozen similar films. Acting wise this is very poor, first & last time director/actor/producer/writer Charles McCrann is OK in the lead but no more, John Amplas (Martin) is badly underused and the others aren't great. The writing and plot is standard horror fare, sane people chased by zombies & corrupt government officials , the climax is the best part of it but like the rest of the movie it is not scary and sadly forgettable.
A watchable 90 minutes just don't expect a classic.
