Connections: Zombie Bloodbath

A bunch of zombies that are used by the government to fight in a major war in the near future get launched into space. The space shuttle gets caught in a time warp and returns to Earth in the present day. Naturally, the zombies get loose and terrorize a motley assortment of folks who are trapped inside a high school. --IMDb

Made five years after the previous film, the final entry in the Zombie Bloodbath trilogy turns out to be... well, to be honest, a lot more of the same. The storyline is just as weak, the acting is still laughable, the blaring heavy metal music is still there in full effect, and the gore looks about the same as it did in the previous film. With five years of experience under his belt, one would think that director Todd Sheets would have been able to spice this entry up a bit, but sadly, that wasn't the case.

The storyline begins with the revelation that we, the United States, have been using zombies to fight the enemy in a massive war. That's fine and dandy, but when the war is over, we don't quite know what to do with the leftover members of the undead. Some genius gets the brilliant idea of herding them all into a giant box and shipping it into outer space, it eventually hits a black hole of some sort, and we switch over to...

Present day: a group of teenagers are shacked up in detention hall for various reasons. This is our main cast for the evening, and they're soon joined by a pair of radio geeks and a Shaft-wannabe action star. The radio geeks soon discover that something is emitting a signal from a location extremely close to the school, and upon further investigation, they find out that there's a massive underground cave under the school which houses a space shuttle. Teenage curiosity being what it is, they decide to investigate and end up letting loose a massive horde of zombies upon the school and its students.

The how's and the why's of this unlikely scenario are eventually revealed as the storyline plods along, but to call them silly would be an understatement. I have to give the guy credit for trying something original in his movie, but just because it's original doesn't mean that it works: after all, there very well may be a reason why nobody else has attempted it in their movie. Suffice it to say that it involves time-warps and various ideas regarding time-travel, and you'll probably get an idea as to why it was so laughable.

Speaking of time-travel, let's take a trip back to a mere two days ago, where we find little old me sitting in my comfortable computer chair and typing up a review for Zombie Bloodbath 2. What was it that I said there? Something like... let's see:

In my review for the previous film, I also said: "If a good story and solid acting is what you're in the market for, you might as well pass right on over this one. If, however, you're looking for a zombie flick that will deliver about an hour's worth of violence, bloodshed, and general mayhem straight into your living room, you could do a lot worse than this one." The same thing can be said for this one. While it's true that director Todd Sheets attempted to put more emphasis on the story with this outing, it's readily apparent that scriptwriting was not his area of expertise. There's some interesting ideas here, mind you, but the sloppy execution of said ideas really dragged down the entertainment factor.

The same thing applies here. The storyline is even more of a factor this time around and the zombie action has once again been toned down, but at the end of the day, the gore is really the only selling point. The effects haven't been improved upon though, as it actually looks as though the two films were shot back-to-back when comparing the progression of the effects. On that subject, what else did I say in that previous review? Oh yes: I never thought I'd say this, but there's only so many gut-ripping scenes one can watch before it just starts to get tiresome. Once again, that statement applies here as well.

I thought it was particularly funny how the actors felt that they had to use some sort of profanity as every other word in almost every chunk of dialogue that was spoken. Fucking seriously, this fucking shit just fucking got really goddamned fucking old very fucking quick, you fucking understand what the fucking hell I'm trying to fucking say, you goddamned piece of cunt-lapping shit? That was an interesting touch, though it probably wasn't one of the selling points on paper. Other than that, it's more of the same: read my previous two reviews and figure out if those were something that you'd be interested in. On the positive side, Camp Motion Pictures is releasing all three movies in a two-disc set for just twelve bucks, so it's a damned good price if you're morbidly curious. 4/10.
