Colorful Black and White Zombies

Aaah! Zombies!!

A military-made batch of experiment goo designed to make a super soldier ends up in some ice cream goo being served at a bowling alley. Once mixed with beer (it’s plausible – go with it), those who ingest the contaminated ice cream beer cones are turned into fully functional zombies with improved strength, glassy white eyes and severed body parts that continue to fully function.

Aaah! Zombies!!

Two hot chicks and their boyfriends become zombified. A military guy  shows up to explain their situation and is a zombie himself. Problem is, they don’t see themselves as the undead – but everybody else does. This makes them think everyone else is infected and not them. That’s bowling alley logic for you.

Aaah! Zombies!!

In their perspective everything’s in color, from glistening red cat blood all over one girl’s blouse), to the black shotgun hole in her boyfriend’s chest. To those not infected, everything’s in black and white and the kids are shambling zombies coming to eat skin hors d’oeuvres. And that’s just one of 27 clever and funny things about Aaah! Zombies!! (2007)

Aaah! Zombies!!

While the punchline sight gags keep the blood flowing, it’s the zombie bowling team that’ll split your gut. That, and the talking undead head in a bowling bag. Nice to finally see a zombie movie from the undead’s point of view, even if they put brains in a blender and drink it like a meal replacement shake.

Aaah! Zombies!!

Japanese Rat Monster

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

In Japan, a U.S. co-funded attempt to create a super soldier accidentally creates the Bacillus Virus, which gives people hundreds of black sores on their faces. That these sores look like someone took a laundry marker and just made dots is not really the point.

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

Their experiments mutates a lab rat into a seven-foot tall lab rat monster with baby walrus-sized fangs and a red rubber face frozen in a roller coaster expression of “Aiyeeeeee!” Other distinguishing features include red eyes (to convey aggressive behavior), sharp claws (a way to open cans of rat food in case there’s no rat food opener handy), and a head that looks like sunburnt meatloaf (though it really does go with the whole fangs/claws ensemble). What looks to be a giant brain stuck on its back could indeed be plastic. My research is inconclusive at this time.

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

The scientists wanted to make a soldier who would be impervious to chemical warfare and germs, but they couldn’t make themselves impervious to Nezulla, the rat monster, who wants to chew the fat with each and every one of them locked in the containment facility.

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

A double agent is sent in to blow up the place, thereby eliminating any evidence that could link them back to the virus that’s gooning people out. Soldiers, speaking both Japanese and money-in-the-bank English, are systematically made null and void by Sunburnt Meatloaf Head. But Nez ain’t got time to mess around – when confronted with one soldier, he pushes him down! (That’ll teach ’em.)

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

Another soldier triggers an explosive device and shoves it deep Nezulla’s mouth, but forgets to extract his arm. Nezulla, doing what mutated rats do, bites the arm off. No time to savor it’s deliciousness as the bomb goes off and Nezulla, alas, is no more.

Nezulla - The Rat Monster

But this train wreck of a horror/sci-fi movie keeps going even after its star power has been finely minced. So face-scrunchingly bad is Nezulla – The Rat Monster (2002), it train wrecked my evening. OK, not really. But close.
