Zombie films are everywhere. In time, it is likely to be one of the genres that will see the popularity die down. Unfortunately, there are many low budget indie flicks that populate the shelves, excessively many to watch, so finding the right one is often a challenge. Fortunately, there is always time to try. Next, up for review (also from Brain Damage Films) Blood Rush from 2012.
Plot/ When a small town is overcome with a blood lust, the local Witch Doctor is thought to be the source. What they don't know is that he has a different agenda.
As everyone who have read my blog realize, I absolutely love incoherent no-budget indie flicks and this one is definitely right up that alley. While it is a strange mixture of well-known zombie films and does have some cliché moments, there is definitely a subtle world of its own that lives inside. While the acting is sound, the storyline decent, and the execution solid, it does have some flaws. The pacing is a touch slow, the effects are uneven, and there are definitely some head scratching moments. In the end, this film is one of the better no-budget indie flicks out there. While it is not perfect, it is a film that takes on some serious aspects within the confines of the zombie genre. Not for everyone, but it can be worth a watch.
