What's it about
The substance that turns everyone to zombies, Trioxin, has now been made into a drug called 'Z', and is being passed around all over the place, culminating in a rave. Oh, and did I mention that this drug turns you into a brain-eating zombie?
Is it good movie?
Obviously a cash grabbing attempt, it makes me sad to have to spend time reviewing a movie like this. Let it be known that I really do enjoy the first and second ROTLD films, I think they're quite funny, their tongue in cheek humor works well.

This, on the other hand, is a TV movie that just sucks. I mean, I could spend time trying to explain the plot, but what plot is there? Why in the HELL, after one person takes this new drug and turns into a zombie, would anyone EVER take it again? I mean, people see what happens when you take this? I guess you could argue that its a sort of social commentary on the drug culture, but I don't give the filmmakers that much credit.

And talk about your stupid characters! Every stereotype in the book is reflected, and they make my head hurt. The dialogue, oh, the dialogue is so painful too. And the other thing that sucks is that this is a TV movie, so even though there are a few decaps and other assorted nastiness, its all edited and TV-safe! And HOW do you wreck a character like TARMAN? He was so awesome!

Folks, ROTLD 5 should not exist. and really isn't worth your time. I wanted to be able to eat my own brain out. Seriously, that's impossible, but I was trying to figure out a way to eat my own brain.

Last Call
This is the kind of flick, that if you saw it on TV at 4am with a buddy, you'd laugh your ass off. However, if you paid money for this, I can't imagine how you could really enjoy it. It doesn't have the real 'meat' of a ROTLD movie, how can one of these flicks just be a 'Sci-fi original'? That being said, this party was over quicker than I thought and I'd never go back.
