Zombie Bloodbath 2

Zombie Bloodbath 2 – 1995 – United States

Topeka, Kansas. 1945: Satanic cultists crucify a man and then make him into a human scarecrow.

Topeka, Kansas. Present day: Escaped convicts take a jacket from the cursed scarecrow and awaken an army of zombies as heavy metal music plays. The convicts struggle to survive along with some college students, some little girls, and a member of the U.S. Special Forces. The motley survivors flee from an isolated farmhouse to a deli where they are assaulted by redneck serial killers. Eventually, the survivors find vials of flesh-eating bacteria improbably left in an old pick up truck. They splash these on the zombie horde, killing most of the zombies and themselves. The last woman is killed by a face-devouring kiss from her newly undead boyfriend.

Zombie Bloodbath 2: Rage of the Undead is part of the Zombie Bloodbath trilogy directed by Todd Sheets. Todd seems like a cool dude, but his movies are amateurish, derivative, and pretty gross. In an interview, he aptly describes Zombie Bloodbath 2 as a combination of Night of the Living Dead (1963) and Natural Born Killers (1994). When they are not being eviscerated by zombies, the characters are tortured and molested by demented criminals. A dude is forced to eat broken glass. A teenage girl is shot in the genitals. Necrophilia happens. There is a lot of abusive foul-mouth dialogue, and way too much yelling. In Zombie Bloodbath 2’s behind-the-scenes featurette, some old ladies are seen in the crowd at the movie’s premier. Did it feel good to gross out those old ladies, Todd?

Following the movie is a message that reads: “This feature is produced with the hope that we have left you with a thought or two about the human race. In many ways, we are already ZOMBIES and the characters and situations depicted in this feature are based on real people and incidents that have happened in Missouri. The message is clear: As a race, we humans always try to blame something else for our problems, when in reality, it is a fact that WE are killing OURSELVES. We, as a race, are killing our forests and natural resources, but far worse, we are destroying US. Think about it.”

I guess I never thought about it like that before.

Rating: 3/10 Shrunken Heads. I have trashed the movies of Todd Sheets several times on this blog. I really do think he is a nice guy though. I hope the best for him.
