Plaga Zombie: Mutant Zone

Do you like intestines, stomach parts and/or limbs separated from their plug-ins? Then you’ll totally heart Plaga Zombie: Mutant Zone (2001), an extreme gore gooshfest.

Zombies here come in all the colors of the Dutch Boy™ rainbow: vein blue, bile green, ripped rectum red, even seagull egg white. A med student who can’t figure out how to do exams with his finger, a nerd-boy who doesn’t know what a female boob is, and a pro wrestler unite to do battle with this colorful zombie plague that has overtaken their Argentinian (!) urban village.

But these brain-hungry zombies aren’t brainless – they’re being controlled by someone. The city has been cordoned off by the FBI, so it’s either have lunch or be lunched on. Along the way the pro wrestler employs the use of a ridiculously long intestine (that keeps farting) to trip up the zombie rappers, ninjas and poker players. (I don’t care what you say – fart jokes NEVER get old).

Another excellent scene: where Max (the wrestler) rips an arm off a presumably dead body and uses it like a nunchuck.

Outstanding gore – and buckets of it: Heads go split, flesh goes rip, torsos go splat, eyes go burst. This ain’t drama, it’s art. Sure, it looks like it was made with a mid-range priced Best Buy™ digital video camera. But this isn’t the time nor place for Hollywood.
