A group of freaky acid-dropping, Satan-worshipping hippies led by “Indian” Horace Bones descends upon a small town. They find an abandoned house to seek refuge in to practice their rituals. The gang wreaks havoc on the townsfolk, leaving them frightened. After an older gent’s granddaughter was roughed up by the gang, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He confronts the gang and is nearly beaten to a pulp and forced to take LSD. His grandson exacts revenge by shooting a rabid dog and injecting the infected blood into meat pies he sells to the hippies. Once the gang gets a taste of those pies…all “hell” breaks loose. No more spoilers from me y’all!
This has got to be one of the funniest, over-the-top, horror movies I’ve ever seen in my life. I truly laughed until I hurt. The rabid “hippies” were a multicultural motley crew of nonsense….there were a few White ones, the “Indian” leader, a Black dude, an Asian chick, a pregnant chick, a deaf mute HOLY SHIT! The racial stereotypes were so in-your-face that I couldn’t help but to cackle with evil glee. This is supposed to be a “zombie” movie but they moved entirely too fast and no flesh was eaten in the film which is typical zombie behavior. The infected folks just became very violent and lashed out with axes, tree branches, electric knives, and anything else they could get their hands on. You can tell who was infected by the froth coming from their mouths….it looked like either shaving cream or Alka Seltzer tablets, tres cheesy. For a *B* grade film, the acting was pretty good. The grandson did a great job for such a young actor and the old Asian chick was truly the scariest thing in the film, she gave me the creeps! It was apparent that the actors, especially the zombies, were either stage actors or dancers, their moves were so precise. There were some scenes that really made no sense, for example one of the hippies flee after her group members begin to transform, she encounters a group of construction workers and instead of asking for help….she BOINKS them all! WTF? The construction workers are also a part of one of the most hilarious episodes in the film….the scene looks like a Village People revival. The Black man looked more like a crack fiend than a zombie, oh wait….they are one in the same lol. Overall this was a great discovery and I enjoyed it so much, I plan to purchase it. This one ain’t suitable for all audiences; there are some animal killings (damn rats ugh!) and plenty of nudity and gore, although the gore is Film School 101 lame-o.
VERDICT: 3 Soul Claps
