A barrel of toxic waste goes a-missin' on redneck land. Local bootleggers use the toxic waste barrel as a still, creating an alcoholic beverage that turns the whole community into bloodthirsty zombies. An odd collection of hikers find themselves in the zombies' neck of the woods. Will anyone survive? And are we supposed to care, really?
My first Troma film! And maybe my last, or maybe Mr. AC and I will do a whole Troma-thon some year. So Troma afficionados, correct me if I'm wrong: the worst acting, seriously, ever. I'm pretty sure the actors in my high school were better than any of these folks. Characters exclusively stereotypes. Lots of shocky-gory-violent scenes. Ultra low budget. Plenty of cheap jokes and otherwise juvenile humor, some of which connects. Lame but straightforward plot. Not scary at all. I gave this particular Troma gem one and a half stars because of the humor and the gore, and because (after reading JPX's review of The Climax) it wasn't a musical.
