Storyline

When a zombie plague infects Camp Special Dude, a dude ranch for the mentally handicapped, a ragtag band of campers and counselors struggles to survive the night. Led by the indifferent, nun-chuck-wielding head counselor, Mac, and his wheelchair-bound sister Dale, the unlikely heroes fight their way off the mountain as, one by one, they're picked off and join the ranks of the walking dead. It's a campy stampede of blood, boobs and gore as some "very special" people show that they can kick some serious undead ass. Written by Jared Tweedie

Nowhere near as bad as expected...
25 January 2012 | by AnusPresleySee all my reviews

... but that's not an endorsement.

Retards and zombies is a genre sorely lacking, but this effort did not hit home. There is squeamishness evident throughout at laughing at the intellectually handicapped - which kills the whole premise. C'mon, if you are going to make fun, you need to let go with both barrels or not at all. This squeamishness is what undid what could have been a true cult keeper.

I expected a _Police Academy_ brand of American idiocy. In this regard at least I was surprised. Nowhere near that level of dumbness. Zombies are good. Story not entirely predictable. Acting is passable. Still, opportunity squandered. I imagine what could have been in the absence of guilt and ethics. A _Bad Taste_ on steroids. Sadly, this blew it.

Worth seeing with pizza and a case of beer. But very easily forgotten.
