THE PLOT THUS FAR
A conservative island community is under attack! Port Gamble, Washington is being overrun with brain-eaters, and the people seem powerless to stave them off. A ragtag band of rebels led by Frida (Janette Armand), an Iranian college student suspected of being an Iraqi terrorist, and Tom (Doug Fahl), a gay businessman who has returned to town with his partner to come out to his mother, tries to turn the tide and push the invading hordes of undead back.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
The film starts with a few different key characters, all set to be in opposition. An Iranian girl, the Republican, a gay guy and his boyfriend, and other such stereotyped conservatives and leftist people molds. Set in the town of Port Gamble with its picket fences and quaint Norman Rockwell charm, the people are subjected to a vague “terrorist attack”, a viral outbreak which turns the good townsfolk into zombies.
“Zombies of Mass Destruction” was a very good flick. It started out with some laugh out loud moments and quickly establishes its viewpoint on two topics, fear of people from foreign countries and fear of homosexuals. Janette Armand plays Frida who everyone in town continually comments on how shes from Iraq. Shes quick to point out that shes American, born and bred, and that her family is from Iran and not Iraq. Nobody seems to notice that though.
The Blu-Ray comes with a rather in-depth look at the production of the film. The A/V Quality is also surprisingly strong for an indie horror flick. The audio upgrade to DTS-HD 5.1 makes the film seem more impressive, even when the 1080p transfer reveals most of the indie horror movie mistakes. Still, the movie isn’t that amazing. I’d recommend giving it a rental. But, don’t surprised if you don’t want to turn this flick into a keeper.
