Getting Low on High Zombies
I get that Gravestoned’s (2009) “stoner-centric horror” is intended to be funny. But unless you’re baked, not only is the low-budget “movie” NOT humorous, it’s just plain stoopid.
Two pot farmers cut off an arm of a cadaver to use a realistic prop in a low-budget horror movie. Life imitates art. The cadaver comes back to life and wants its arm back. (If the corpse was smart, it would’ve rented the arm to the filmmakers.)
The pot humor needed to be way more Cheech & Chong and a lot less “but my mom thinks I’m funny.” And the bubble-headed cheerleaders, all of whom were born in a shopping mall, don’t look as though they’re acting.
If I were the cadaver I wouldn’t find Gravestoned’s premise the least bit entertaining. If you want to become a zombie yourself, just watch this movie — it’ll make you brain dead in about 92 minutes.
