The title alone was enough for me to at least want to take a chance and check out Zombie A-Hole, especially since it was produce by Dustin Mills! I really liked his film, The Puppet Monster Massacre, so I jumped right in. As you might expect this is a low budget B-movie; but I didn’t realize just how low of a budget. After a little bit of research I found out that the budget for this movie was a mere $1000 dollars. That alone should give you an idea of what to expect here.
Here is the set-up. The movie follows the murderous adventures of a well-dressed zombie who has a penchant for killing pairs of twins, and if the he murders enough of them, he’ll eventually gain the power to destroy the world as we know it. Our hero, the cowboy zombie hunter Frank Fulci, is hell-bent on preventing that from happening as he chases the zombie across the United States aided by a mysterious voodoo box containing a magical gremlin.
I’m a fan of low budget horror movies and this one definitely fits the bill. I can deal with the less-than-stellar special effects and even the picture quality; this is expected. Plot however is another story. I had a difficult time following this one and at times had absolutely no idea what was going on. I managed to muscle through and it eventually all came together. At the end of the day, if you like cheesy low budget horror movies this one might be right up your alley. Kudos to Mills for being able to do so much with so little.
