Little Bit Zombie (2012)


Sit back and get ready for a fun little bit of zombie silliness. This film pays pretty good homage to the late 80’s B-Movie class of horror films and not the Dawn of the Dead kind. Sadly, our world is unable to make movies like Invisible Maniac (1990) and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers (1988)anymore. You’re even pretty hard-pressed to see any nudity in horror anymore. Poor us. But A Little Bit Zombie does a pretty good job telling a silly story in a convincing way with the same kind of acting once served up by Linnea Quigley and Brinke Stevens. Following in a long-line of great Canadian horror films, this $2 million movie was by crowd-funded through and they did a really stand-up or should I say a slow foot-drag job.

Two guys and two girls go to the cottage where Steve (Kristopher Turner) gets bitten by by a mosquito that had previously bitten a zombie. He manages to keep it together with the help and support of his fiance Tina (Crystal Lowe), his sister Sarah (Kristen Hager) and party-animal Craig (Shawn Roberts). They work together to help Steve try to get some brains while over-looking his physical break-down. The group manages to keep it together even when they encounter Zombie-Hunter Max (Canadian great Stephen McHattie) and his foxy nerd-girl partner Penelope Pendleton (Emilie Ullerup).

The Story gets a +2 because it was fun with a bit of a twist. The Look was really crisp, maybe too crisp, but given the budget I’ll give it +1. The Overall Casting will score a +2 and the Commitment to Genre will definitely score a +2.

Subtotal: +7

The basic scoring sums up just about everything I need to score on A Little Bit Zombie but I will add a +1 for the tit-punch. I really liked the tit-punch scene.

Final Score +8
