How Desperate for a New Horror Movie Do You Have to be to Watch "Zombie Massacre?" Insanely.

Zombie flicks are a tempting choice for first-time filmmakers; with a little bit of shaky cam action, some basic makeup effects, and actors who can do the bare minimum of looking scared and running, you can make a zombie horror with minimal effort and talent. Maybe that’s what attracted Marco Ristori and Luca Boni to write and direct Zombie Massacre (aka Apocalypse Z), the follow-up to their first and similarly poorly made film Eaters. All their effort wasn’t for naught though, as Zombie Massacre does earn a very noteworthy distinction: it will easily be one of the worst zombie movies you ever force yourself to watch. It’s not the so-bad-it’s-funny kind of film, it’s the painfully awful piece of garbage variety that filmmakers should only show to their closest friends and family and then destroy. There’s nothing of value here.

Eaters (2011)

Directed by: Marco Ristori and Luca Boni

Written by: Marco Ristori and Germano Tarricone

Starring: Guglielmo Favilla, Alex Lucchesi, Claudio Marmugi, Rosella Elmi

The cover art for Eaters proclaims that the film is “presented by Uwe Boll.” This information should be more than enough for potential viewers to make up their minds. Mr. Boll did not direct this latest take on the zombie apocalypse, nor did he have much direct involvement with the production. So if the best your Italian zombie film has to trumpet is a tenuous association with the reviled filmmaker of House of the Dead, then you’ve already set the expectation level rather low. It turns out the Boll mention was an adequate, and honest, admonition of the resulting 95 minutes.

A mutant virus that turns humans into flesh-eating zombies has destroyed the civilized world. In a filthy, dilapidated compound a scientist with the unfortunate name of

Indie Spotlight

We return with the latest edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes release details for A Resurrection, the first teaser trailer for Ten, a review of Smiley, and much more:

First Teaser Trailer for Ten: “Ten is a collectivist, post-exploitation psychological thriller devised as a possible explanation for the events of the 1972 Spektor Island Massacre. On a cold December afternoon, ten women arrive at a mansion on Spektor Island, famed for years of reported hauntings and strange activities. Will they live through the night?

The all-female cast film is a response to exploitation, slasher, and thriller films, with particular focus on the kind of storytelling prominent in b-movies and genre films from the 1950s to the 1980s. It explores the meaning and fluidity of identity and takes a number of surprising turns, paying homage to filmmakers and producers such as Alfred Hitchcock,

Angry, Undead Rats in Uwe Boll's 'Zombie Massacre' Trailer
Director Uwe Boll’s latest project is the video-game-turned-film, Zombie Massacre. Boll is producing the adaptation which is based on a 1998 first-person shooter game for the Amiga computer. It’s directed by Luca Boni and Marco Ristori who made Eaters. Here’s the story:

A bacteriological weapon – developed by the Us Government to create a super soldier – spreads an epidemic in a quiet little town in the middle od Eastern Europe. All citiziens have been turned into infected zombies. The plan is: to bring an atomic bomb into the nuclear plant of the city to pretend a terrible accident. No one has to know the truth. A commando of mercenaries is hired to do the mission. The battle is on. Hordes of monsters against a bunch of men. Who will survive?

The airport setting is faintly reminiscent of Quarantine 2: Terminal and maybe just a little of Nightmare City, but nowhere near as batshit crazy.

Uwe Boll’s Eaters Marches to American DVD

Uwe Boll didn’t actually direct Eaters but he does “present” it. Don’t let that scare you off because this Italian nod to Romero-esque zombie flicks has gotten some fairly decent reviews. We Americans will finally get our chance to get eaten this coming March.

Mark March 5th on your calendar because that’s the day the dead will be devouring DVD, the date when E1 Entertainment brings Eaters to American shores. If you want to know how long it has taken for North America to get Eaters, our own UK critic “Pestilence” penned a positive review of the UK DVD release all the way back in June 2011.

Marco Risori and Luca Boni co-directed; Guglielmo Favilla, Alex Lucchesi, Steve Sylvester, Rosella Elmi, and Richard Burton co-star; and, most importantly, Uwe Boll presents!

Synopsis:

After being devastated by a deadly epidemic, the world is now governed by hordes of living dead.

New Trailer for Uwe Boll's Zombie Massacre

About a year ago, we showed you a teaser for Uwe Boll's "Zombie Massacre" film, based on a little known 1998 video game, which was somewhat similar to "Doom." And today, we have a full trailer. Check it out below. Boll is just producing, leaving helming duties to Marco Ristori and Luca Boni, who made a low-budget zombie movie "Eaters" for him. Just like with most of his movies, Boll will make a cameo in "Zombie Massacre" as the President of United States. Plot: A bacteriological weapon - developed by the Us government to create a super soldier - turns all citizens of a quiet little Eastern European town into infected zombies. The town is in quarantine, but the government wants to destroy it to avoid the spread of the infection. To hide the truth, an atomic bomb will be brought into the city's nuclear plant to make it look like a terrible accident.

Behind-the-Scenes Photos from "Zombie Massacre" - A Film Based Off The Video Game

From the dangerous duo who brought us the surprisingly great "Eaters: Rise of the Dead", Luca Boni and Marco Ristori comes a new zombie film titled "Zombie Massacre". While the name leaves something a little more to be desired the latest batch of behind-the-scene stills have me excited to see what this film will turn out like.

Latest Batch of Behind-the-Scenes Photos from Zombie Massacre

There are a lot of zombie movies coming out this year, but only one of them is directed by “Eaters: Rise of the Dead” masterminds Luca Boni and Marco Ristori. “Zombie Massacre”, the duo’s latest undead-related endeavor, is being proudly presented to the world by Uwe Boll. However, don’t let the “House of the Dead” director’s involvement dissuade you from checking this one out. “Eaters” was a pretty badass movie, and from the looks of things, their latest effort seems to have been fashioned from the same mold. That’s a good thing, by the way. The film is loosely based on the video game by 1988 Games, which is about a group of police officers who are charged with delivering a nuclear bomb into a zombie-infested city. The adaptation stars Christian Boeving, Jon Campling, Mike Mitchell, Gerry Shanahan, Daniel Vivian, and the lovely Tara Cardinal. You can

Exclusive: Uwe Boll Caught Up in a 'Zombie Massacre'
German filmmaker Uwe Boll has made a career for himself by churning out quick flicks adapted from video games. But his next film isn't actually his.

Eaters and Your Ticket to a Zombie Road Show: A Movie Review

*here be some spoilers.

Directors: Luca Boni and Marco Ristori.

Writers: Germano Tarricone and Marco Ristori.

Eaters or Eaters: Rise of the Dead is an Italian film in Italian that puts two characters on the road in an apocalypse. Much of the world's population is dead and those remaining shamble the earth forever. This is a tense zombie film that focuses primarily on two characters, Igor (Alex Lucchesi) and Alen (Guglielmo Favilla). Everyone else in the film, including a midget Fascist, are just a small part of this travelling zombie road show.

Much like a circus, this new world is full of perverts, mad scientists, talking zombies and even a bloodsport arena. Igor and Alen encounter all of these situations, but they deal with them in two different ways. Alen, the introvert, would rather use his guile to deal with Carvaggio, a painter of corpses and with others. Igor, the extrovert,

Uwe Boll Producing Game Adap “Zombie Massacre”

  • HeyUGuys
Uwe Boll. Two words that conjure up an instant impression, like “Mahatma Gandhi”, or “Mother Theresa”, only a bit different. Uwe Boll has, as a director, foisted on the public some of the most excremental film products known to mankind. I’m delighted to confess that my evidence here is anecdotal rather than first-hand, but consider the following lines of dialogue from some of his offerings:-

Fear is what protects you from the things you don’t believe in.

Rudy: You did all this to become immortal. Why?

Castillo: To live forever!

We finally got to the boat but it wasn’t there.

Guys, check out this book. Looks pretty old, maybe it’ll help us!

Y’all feel me? Aaron Sorkin is rumoured to be not feeling especially threatened. Anyway, Boll’s latest project is as producer only and is yet another in a long line of exceedingly poor video-game adaptations,
