Zombie 4

The best part of this movie is the poster, and it isn't even close.

 

Synopsis: On a remote tropical island, a secret team of doctors anger a local voodoo priest who opens the gates of hell, releasing zombie like creatures.

Thoughts: If Zombi 3 was a huge step back from Dawn of the Dead and Zombi 2, Zombi 4 drove the franchise right off a cliff. There really isn’t much to say about this in-name only sequel that is positive.

It’s a bit of a stretch to even call this a zombie movie, as the zombies appear to be dudes in burial shrouds with a little bit of latex thrown on them. The make-up is not so good. These “zombies” are also capable of running, talking, and using firearms. Take that George Romero!  The Voodoo Priestess in the beginning looks more like a poor impersonation from Lamberto Bava’s Demons than a zombie.

The acting is atrocious as is the script. The lead is played by a gay porn star making his lone attempt at acting in a real movie. This is one of those rare gems that truly earned its IMDb rating (currently 3.4).

Anyways, skip this pile unless you are a huge zombie fan or a glutton for punishment.
