A group of freaks head out to the countryside to give an interview. They are a traveling band of performers that have piqued the interest of a local cult. Once the group hits the sticks the zombie women come out of the woodwork. It seems that the resident mad scientist is attempting to turn women into drooling, snarling beasts. He made his daughter feed them champagne glasses of poison and now the women are raving lunatics intent on devouring people. The band must, um, band together if they hope to survive the zombie onslaught. Bats, guns, knives and chainsaws are used quite frequently upside many topless zombie women heads.
“Zombie Women of Satan” had all the indications of being a terrible movie. It has the kind of title that only a B-movie fan would love and would therefore be suckered into watching it. Filmmakers often pick over the top titles to compensate for the lack of quality in the movie. I was prepared to be dragged through the fires of B-movie hell again just so I could watch some zombie women go wild.
I’m pleasantly surprised to tell you that “Zombie Women of Satan” is not that bad. I was expecting the worst so perhaps that softened the blow. It is a strangely entertaining movie that fluctuates between moments of gore and lame comedy. Thankfully, the comedic moments segue into a gory scene with recurring frequency. Heads are crushed, throats are ripped out and zombie breasts shoot acid so the movie has some charming traits.
Now I’m not saying “Zombie Women of Satan” is good mind you. But I found myself reasonably entertained by a movie I was sure was going to destroy my soul with its awfulness. Pervo the clown and his merry band of circus geeks gawk at the zombie women before smashing their heads in. Most of the zombie, (actually poisoned), women like to run through the woods without any bras on. And this makes perfect sense as the undead have no need for modesty. Pervo takes advantage of his killing spree and soaks in all of the topless zombie wonders.
Come to think of it, not only were these women not zombies, they weren’t connected to Satan at all. So the title is quite meaningless unless the meaning was to get horror fans to rent the movie. If you are thinking of renting it, know that there are plenty of topless women and even more cheap gore to keep you content. You’ll have to suffer through some lame humor, (including a midget taking the longest bathroom break in history), but “Zombie Women of Satan” keeps moving and provides all of the B-movie mayhem it could afford.
SCORE: 2 out of 4 zombie women
