Voodoo Black Exorcist - aka Vudú sangriento. Spanish horrorflick about an ancient mummy being transported to a museum in it's sarcophagus on a cruiseship. On it's way there, the mummy gets revived and starts killing people, running away after each (series of) kill(s) to return to it's sarcophagus and take the dead state agai. This leaves the passengers and the crew in the mist as to who the killer is. The kills are usually fast and have some serious fake effects like with the beheading in the beginning, where you see some flashback of the life of the guy who is now the mummy. The DVD I watched of this one is atrocious: the company had the guts to put "digitally remastered" on the cover, wel, in this case that means next to nothing. Colours are washed out, sound is muffled, there are lots of artifacts and to top it off they made it fullscreen by cutting off a large portion of both sides, to an extent where you have scenes with two people talking to each other and you see none of them. So if you are gonna buy this, don't pick the "American Pop Classics" / "The Archive Collection" version. This was a very bad movie which I could have enjoyed if only I would have seen the entire picture.

Zombie Apocalypse - this is not the film with Ving Rhames and Taryn Manning. This one is directed by Ryan Thompson and even though the title is very unoriginal and the cover looks like an omen warning you about a bad movie incoming, this film is actually pretty cool. Even though the main characters are not really explained (one trained the other but you don't know why or for what), the zombies are OK and the gore is nice. Also the acting is pretty well done for a low budget movie like this. I liked the story and how the plots got together, even though it looked like it ripped off The Walking Dead like so many other zombieflicks coming out in 201 or right after. It even said it was based on a comic too. But well, back to the film: entertaining enough, just don't expect ace production values etc, I have seen way worse though. Recommended if you like independent movies and/or zombiefilms.

My Boyfriend Is A Zombie Stoner - aka The Coed and the Zombie Stone. The cover of this Asylum movie mentions "from the guys who brought you Sharknado", so anyone expecting anything serious or good should get his head checked out. This ridiculous zombie comedy is about a nerdy girl who needs a boyfriend to stay in the sorority house she lives in, and via her professor at the lab she gets one. Tiny detail: he is a zombie, and the only way to suppress his urges to bite people is to give him lots of weed. OK. So puberty mode on in order to sustain this kind of brain damage, which goes along with lots of tits. And lots of tits. I mean really a lot of tits. You even see tits when they don't actually have any kind of function in the story. So having puberty mode on is useful in more than one way. The story is nothing worthwhile to write about, effects are OKish, some gore is cgi but some is nice. The main character is super annoying, the nerds and other social groups in highschool are cliche, but the zombies are kind of fun. I had more fun with Sharknado though. Only for the diehards, or when you are in puberty of course.

Pandemic - the world has succumbed to a widespread disease. Uninfected humans are hiding inside compounds from which search parties are sent out to find other survivors and supplies. On one such mission a doctor is on her way to find some people in a school, but she also has a side mission: to find her family who might or might not be still alive. Pretty OK premise and the execution is not too bad: acting is OK and it is all quite believable, as far as believable goes in zombies/infected movies. Again had some Walking Dead vibes but maybe that is just inevitable these days. Effects are nice, I liked the twist and the ending. It's not A quality but if you like zombies or infected you should give this a shot: it's better than most of those out there.

Yup, that's the one. What's Reek?

Autumn - another zombiemovie, titled "Dead Men Walking" so I thought it'd be the 2005 movie by Peter Mervis, but instead it's a different title for Autumn, a zombieflick I have been trying to avoid like the plague. Which was justified as it turns out. Boring, boring, boring movie, and a very long one at that. I was dead tired, so I could sort of stand it as there was so little happening in the film, my fried brain could handle exactly that. If it were not for my condition that evening, I might have destroyed my screen or my beamer. This is an insult to any movie freak. Avoid! Like the plague!

Reek, the character from Game of Thrones. Or rather the guy who played him.

Ah, OK. Only the missus watched GoT overhere :mrgreen:

Zombie Horde - aka Zombie Apocalypse 2. Another Ryan Thompson zombie movie with a bit more budget than Apocalypse part 1. Story is very different: after the nuclear holocaust mankind is outnumbered by zombies 1000 to 1 or something like that. To find any humans among the millions of undead is a challenge in itself, let alone finding humans who are willing to cooperate with you. So what you see in this movie is a Mad Max kind of setting where various groups are riuvballing each other over supplies and then you have zombies. Fun premise, and the attempt at making a decent movie is well done. The execution however, is riddled with cliches, like the woman not wanting to work with the hero and later the two of them falling in love (uuuggghhh), firefights being interrupted by zombie attacks and the villain being beaten by the hero in some sort of an endfight. The effects would have been better if they weren't cgi and some characters could have used some spicing up, but overall this wasn't a total waste of time and if you like either Mad Max or zombies you can have fun with this one.

State of Emergency - apocalyptic infected movie, but the apocalyptic event is happening only locally, so the people in the area are f00ked but not the entire world. Jim is having a car accident with his fiancee next to him, and while he is trying to save her she dies. Trying to find some shelter, he finds out about the disaster and meets some of the infected. After a short while he gets in contact with a guy who is in a different building, only a few hundred meters away. Now he must try to get there and see if they can get help from outside while warding off the infected. Low budget production, but the limited means are being used rather cleverly in my opinion. The infected aren't very numerous, but they are quite scary and you can really get into Jim's situation. Acting is OK and even though the storyline is pretty simple, it's still entertaining. Mildly recommended, there are better movies out there in this genre, but from the low budget ones this is one of the more interesting ones.

Happy Death Day - Tree, a college student, wakes up in a dorm room with a guy she doesn't know. After she has left, she rushes for college and then lives through her day, which is her birthday, until there is a party at night. On her way to the party, she gets murdered by a masked killer. Next moment she wakes up again in the same dorm room as last morning and she gets to live her birthday once again, only to get killed again at the end of it. Since she starts the day over and over again, she starts to try and find out who the killer is, in order to live through her birthday into the next morning. This movie is Groundhog Day, but with a slasher element. When I read this, I was not really looking forward to the repetition, but fortunately it's not that bad and you get to see some different stuff each "day", so it keeps being entertaining. It also said it was horrorcomedy, but the comedy part was not very big. Acting is good, I'd have liked more effects (almost no gore and Tree's killings are all offscreen) but overall this was quite a nice film, recommended. Now for part 2, which is in the same box.

Nazi Undead - horror with an appealing title and similar cover art, but it doesn't pay off, the movie itself is kind of lifeless. An American couple on holiday in Germany makes a drive to castle Neischwanstein (in a British car for unknown reasons - probably put the GB sticker on to make it look European, as the film is Australian) but they get lost. Of course they don't have reception (I wonder if there is much land in Germany not covered by a network but OK) and they start looking for help in a remote villa. Upon arribval they notice much nazi parafernalia and slowly but surely they find out what happened there during wartime. Weird film, with a Groundhog Day element in it which doesn't make sense at all, characters seeing themselves, sometimes dying this way, sometimes that way. It seems more like the director thought of three different endings and wanted them all to be in the film or something. Acting is not very convincing at times and overall this movie left me wanting. Not gonna watch this one again, pretty sure about that.
