Night of the Zombies Review

That’s right. This one SWAT team member stupidly sets his rifles down, dons a tutu and a top hat and cane, and starts dancing! And you can guess what happens next. Yep…He gets eaten alive by the zombies. Yikes! That is just one of the crazy and memorable scenes from this movie. I never heard of this movie before until recently. Being a fan of George A. Romero‘s zombie films, I just had to have it. Is it as bad as everyone says it is? Yes. But it is still also very entertaining, and creepy too, I might add. I really liked the actors that they picked to star in this movie. They’re all great. The dubbed voice actors are excellent too, and even though I have not heard the actor’s original voices, I think they did a really good job matching the dubbed voices to the characters. They just fit really well, in my opinion. The only downside was that a lot of the movie spent it’s time in the jungle. I think that if the movie had stuck with the more civilized areas throughout the entire film that it would have been better. Still, it was a fun zombie movie that was well worth the money spent.
