I admit it…I’m a sucker for Zombie flicks! Ever since its release two years ago I’ve been wanting for the price to come down to the El Cheapo bin at Walmart. Well it did…but it’s over at Amazon.com of course!
The movie I’m referring to is the Indie film Osombie. Yes that’s right, Osama bin Laden is a Zombie. Here’s the rundown.
Dusty is a yoga instructor whose brother, Derek, disappeared somewhere in Afghanistan. She goes there to try and find him, and in so doing, joins up with a NATO Special Forces unit which hunts down Zombie Insurgents right from the get-go.
In the opening six-minute segment shown last October, Osama had the stuff to make them, and had been doing so when he was killed by the Navy SEALS. He emerged from the Arabian Sea and found his way back to his favorite hell-hole, and began to make more and more Zombies…many of them willing to die and come back to torment the living…all in the name of Jihad, you understand.
As in other Zombie Apocalypse films, The US Government is to blame for distributing a once-”harmless” chemical compound to other, much more nefarious characters, who then proceed to mix other chemicals into the “Godsmack”, turning it into a Zombie-making substance. References are made to “Bill Bonaparte,” “both George Bonapartes” and “Barack Bonaparte,” (which has a nice ring to it!) so you get the idea.
Lots of Head Shots, lots of biting uninfected characters, and in one fun scene, the kitana-wielding Tomboy slices, dices and chops in two one Zombie head in a great mid-air maneuver! It kinda made the ending somewhat anti-climatic. But no matter. Osombie is a fun, popcorn-munching weekend matinee. NOT RATED. I give it 3 stars out of 5.
Finally, this movie inspired me to tweet the following meme:
And with all that said…yes, it’s another edition of The Overnight Open Thread!
