I bought this movie off of the internet. It was one of those deals where it screams at you: "If you liked "BLANK", then you're sure to like "Zombie Cult Massacre"! Buy one today!" So I bought it. I don't think it's a stretch to say that the only ones who would like this movie are horror/gore fans. In fact, I can't see anyone else in the world even knowing it exists. It definitely fills it's niche. It promises you a Zombie and a Cult and a Massacre and you get all three.

OK,OK. The camera work is shoddy. That's being kind. The sound on the tape I had went in and out. It had problems. The acting was ehhh. It looked like a home movie shot in someone's back yard. Very, VERY cheap looking.

But it did have one strength. An unashamed love of gore, blood and more gore. Zombie effects out the ying yang. The "Fetus Feast" scene was my favorite. The last 20 minutes is a giant battle scene with more shotgun violence than you can handle. Everybody and their mother had a shotgun. If you want to see blood and guts and a ton of shotguns, this movie won't disappoint. Just don't expect much of anything else.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 shotgun blasts
