So the movie starts off by pissing me off. This nerdy dude is holding a seance to bring back his dead brother. Yes, the zombies are a result of magic. There's reference to Dungeons and Dragons, and numerous poorly acted movie references. Not only are the zombies a result of magic, but there's a king zombie that can talk, fight like a ninja, do magic, and control the zombies. So Captain King Fucking Zombie (Eric) goes around eating people's souls (not the people themselves......just the soul) in the most corny and overacted way possible. The movie drags for the first bit trying to do some character development. Each person is unique in the way that they're all sort of the same and someone you think you might know. The dialog is absolutely terrible. But....it's sort of growing on me......and I sort of like it. Things are starting to heat up and I'm warming up to this terrible movie.
So I pour the beer into the snifter and it's dark black. It's thick and viscous and browns out at the edges. It leaves a thick brown head that floats like melted marshmallows. The first sniff is intoxicating! I can't believe how much this smells like real Creme Brulee!!! There's sweet vanilla and burnt sugar dripping over chocolaty notes and rich cream. It's like your about to drink a gourmet milkshake.
So the more I watch this movie the more I love it! But, before I tell you why I love this movie let me tell you a little bit more about why I hate it. The dialog is horrible. Especially the guy who summons his brother. I think his name in the movie was Randal but I think we should just call him wizard boy. He's so terrible. But it's so terrible it's awesome. There's a lot of references to other movies; Army of darkness, Evil Dead, Star Wars, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just to name a few. I hate the fake CGI fireballs that wizard boy and his brother king fucking zombie hurl at each other in the final battle scene. I hate the way that king fucking zombie overacts every single line and every expression. He comes off so cocky and talentless that it's hard not to hate him. The fight scenes are terrible and soooo slow. All that being said this is probably the BEST B rate zombie movie I own. It's an all around instant favorite. Why? Because it's original, and it's funny. It feels like you made the movie with a group of your friends and as you watch it your reliving the good times. Unlike Living a Zombie Dream and I, Zombie which are so bad....they're terrible, this one is so bad......it's awesome!!!! I would go ahead and say this should go on your must see list. It's even got a squeal out "Ninjas Versus Vampires". I am not a fan of vampire movies but i might have to make an exception for this one.
Even if you don't like imperial stouts and b rate horror (which i find hard to believe) you should still buy this beer and rent this movie. Because even if you don't love it, in fact even if you hate it, i guarantee they will be unforgettable!
