or return of the evil dead for shame

Nightmare city is an atrocious movie.
Yes. My opinion is the only correct one.

The only film on that list I've seen is Cemetery Man, which is pretty weird. But good. The ending is very surreal, which I normally don't care for, but it worked really well for this movie.

List could have included Return of the Living Dead 3, a boy meets girl, boy accidentally kills girl, boy brings girl back to life as zombie, now zombie girl cuts herself to control her craving for BRAAAAAAAAAAINS. That movie is pretty twisted, but funny and Mindy Clarke makes for a very hot zombie.

No Dance of the Dead with its zombie makeout scene?

What, no Dead Snow? Zombie Nazis. What more could you ask for. I will repeat:

ZOMBIE NAZIS

A little sad that Idle Hands wasn't there. It was a little gem to offset precious movies like American Pie.

Dancis_Frake: CSB time
I met with Steve Johnson - who was one of the makeup artists on Dead Heat, among other really cool things on his resume - 2 years ago, during a movie festival.

I got him to sign my Blade 2 dvd but the look on his face when I pulled out my Dead Heat dvd was priceless.
These movies go back to a time where the guys really had fun doing art in their head and materializing it. Too bad most of them are reduced, nowadays, to making corpses for tv shows like CSI or Bones.


Very cool! Steve deserves a lot more credit than he seems to get. The guys work on Ghostbusters and The Abyss alone should put him up there with Baker and Winston.

Omahawg: when I was a kid I saw some movie, likely overdubbed from what I remember, about these nazi zombies that came out of the ocean and went all nom nom nom to some of the usual suspects you find running around stranded on an island.

creeped me out. has always creeped me out. never found out it's name and never really cared. 'cause creepy.


Sounds to me like it was
Jess (Jesus) Franco's Oasis of the Zombies (aka The Treasure of the Living Dead.)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0474531/

The only three films that immediately rush to my mind upon hearing/reading the phrase "Nazi zombies" are "Shock Waves" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076704/, the aformentioned "Død snø (Dead Snow)" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1278340/ and Oasis.

Pandora's Litterbox: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076704/

You're welcome.

Great days when such things could and often did happen. Loved the old Hammer and Man-In-Giant-Monster-Suit (with zippers plainly visible) flicks they'd show.

Hell, I still recall being wonderfully deeply unnerved by just this commercial for Suspiria http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwA_58KIEcs

Actually, it was THIS TV advertisement. As the one I posted above was actually the theatrical trailer.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJSI9PXj8js&feature=related.

And, just for kicks I'll post these cool 'tube vids I found while searching for it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=lbkwKOUHXYg (collection of tv ad spots for 1960s horror/sci-fi films)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23yIF7BNPjY (collection of tv ad spots for late 1970's-early 1980's horror films.)

(love the "in color" and "starts Friday at your local theaters and drive-ins" as some of the ads fade out.)

Yeah, I'm (chronologically) old.

I loved Night of the Comet and Dead Heat.

"You're hurt!"
"Lady, I'm farking dead."

Classic 80's cheese.

electronsexparty: I've seen 'Dead Heat,' 'Cemetery Man,' and 'Wild Zero.' All three are worth at least one viewing.

I know 'Dead Alive' is pretty awesome, but it's pretty strange. I would've put that on the list too.


Wow. You are, like, my zombie film twin.

I'd like them to make a movie from the novel "The Night Boat". Zombie Nazis... On a U-boat!

No Zombies Anonymous? The end fight scene is worth the painful film school dialogue/acting.

Also don't forget Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies, surprisingly okay for a direct to video "confuse people who think they're actually wathing the summer blockbuster" spoof.

Why not a bonus one, Mutant Chronicles, featuring the "always hungry for work" Ron Perlman.

Balance being key, the above mentioned Dead Snow, Rammbock, and Exit Humanity are surprisingly good worth watching.

I'm not sure that technically counts as a zombie movie.

Speaking of Perlman, what about I Sell the Dead?

Deadheads is another one (and it's on Instant Play).
