I do have to say that I rather enjoyed the idea of a heroic garbageman. I don't know why, just something greatly amuses me about the idea of a garbageman vigilante who travels from B-movie to B-movie, trying to set things right, hoping that the next leap will be to somewhere worth watching.

i bought this movie from a movie store because i collect zombie movies(i hope to one day own a copy of every one ever made.)i was a little surprised how much i really enjoyed it(i love B movies anyway.).i remember growing up watching the camp of the 80's and 90's slumber party massacres, pretty much anything from Troma,biker zombies from Detroit, i have a real fondness for low budget masterpieces.sometimes people get so wrapped up in who's in the film and what kind of special effects there are to stop and take the time to enjoy the simple works for what they are without expectations driven by high dollar it's kind of rare,at least not that easy to find for less than $15(i got lucky and only paid $1.50 for mine.).love it or hate it,someone liked it enough to fund it for release. Cheers

Dude this movie is so dope! They did a few things here. They tried to tell a story differently as well as film it well. You can tell bcuz the dialog was a balance between funny and campy. It was at it's core a statement on our real death by television, rotting minds. There were some people having fun here. Hence the swirling legs in the washer, and the putting on of the dead guys glasses. I was rolling!! It was so obviously meant to be funny. They accomplished what they set out to do--and thats make a cool, funny, subconsciously deep, horror romp.  Thumbup Thumbup

I just finished watching this via NetFlix.  It was a cheesy 80's movie, but I liked it and will probably watch again.  The movie was predictable.  I liked how it tried to play off of Fulci films with the baboon screams and the camera angles.  I would give two slimes for this one.  I would recommend to anyone who likes cheesy horror/zombie movies.

Was David Bowie paid for his cameo in this?  Wink

But, be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
