    Plaga Zombie: Zona Mutante

    Directed by: Pablo Parés, Hernán Sáez
    Staring: Berta Muñiz, Pablo Parés, Hernán Sáez
    In Spanish with English subtitles.

    I consider myself something of a risk taker when it comes to buying DVDs of movies I have never heard of. My logic being I would pay about the same amount going to the theatre and that’s just for tickets to get in. So when I stumbled onto Plaga Zombie: Zona Mutante (PZ: ZM) I was intrigued to say the least.

    A production from Argentina, PZ: ZM is a mind-blowing exercise in creativity and inspired mayhem. This can easily fit a triple bill with Bad Taste, and Dead and Breakfast. Not as good as the former but much better than the latter PZ: ZM is, for lack of a more fitting word, INSANE. The movie wastes no time recapping events that take place in Plaga Zombie (the predecessor to this film which is included on the disc) and it’s really not necessary. All you need to know is the FBI fucked up, created zombies and dumps the survivors: A medical student, a professional wrestler (with his own theme music!) a computer geek and another in a body bag that can’t be opened, into the infected town full of nothing but zombies.

    Within minutes the chaos ensues and you know exactly what kind of move this is: ridiculous, over the top, kinetic and completely unpredictable. As with most movies of this type (the over the top, low budget zombie comedy) the humor comes fast and furious and not all of it works. But when it does, it’s laugh out loud hilarious. Thankfully this happens to be quite more often than not.

    The running time of 100 minutes is a bit long for a movie of it’s kind but just when I thought, “Ok let’s move o…” something new would happen spinning the action in a totally different direction.

    I highly recommend this for fans of the sub sub-genre, gore freaks, and fans of independent horror movies. It’s a blast from start to finish. This is the kind of movie that shows what a true love for the genre and of making movies is capable of.

    8/10

      I first heard about it yesterday when I saw it at Tower DVD...It's from Media Blasters so I imagine you should be able to get it anywhere...It's on Amazon.com for $12.99...

        I actually bought this used last month for $5...still haven't gotten around to watching it. Looks like it'll be the next flick I watch when I have some time...

        Thanks for the recommendation.

                Bah...I just was just looking for something to put it in with that wasn't Dead Alive because I didn't want Peter Jackson owning the Low Budget Zombie Comedy evening...

                          I watched this last night...
                          It was one of the most ridiculous spectacles I've ever witnessed. I definately understand where the Dead Alive comparison came from...It's as if the director was channeling a younger Peter Jackson while filming...it's uncanny.
                          I had a blast watchin' it, that's for sure...thanks for the recommendation, N2N!

                              I brought mine at bestbuy, but been reading about in Fangoria which was up to date with it b4 it was released. It was like $10 and has 2 discs Pt 1 and 2.

                              Great make up effects not at all the least bit scary, but has some great humor besides 2 or 3 parts being corny over all its funny and bloody. Good for a collection. the song and dance part with John West I found to be so funny it was stupid but in a good way.
