What's it about
A small town full of every stereotype you can imagine gets attacked by zombies. Unfortunately for us, not everyone dies.
Is it good movie?
There are about 45 seconds total of this film that are worth watching. Beyond two fun kills though, this is one of the most infantile, immature, poorly realized attempts at a social satire that I've ever seen. I'd say it feels like it was written by a 10th grade drama nerd outcast, but that would give the end product way too much credit.

The sad thing here is that even the liberal choir this movie is trying to preach to is going to feel embarassed at the ridiculously broad strokes this flick paints. It's got hippies, stoners, gays, muslims, rednecks, and so on and so forth. All are caricatures with no weight behind their presence because they are poorly acted and badly drawn.

Want a sample of the dialogue? How 'bout this ill-conceived pun battle - "I really like your Iraq." "Well there's Norway you're getting into these panties tonight." It's even more painful watching it, although I will admit this scene did save itself a bit by having a zombie subsequently rip the boyfriends face off.

Basically the only thing that made this insufferably self-important waste of time watchable after the first 10 minutes was amusing myself by creating the simplest drinking game in the world to play along with it. Just drink everytime some overused liberal cliche is spouted out in a manner so ham-handed that supporters of the point are embarassed by it. I promise you'll be obliterated in no time.

Props to the f/x squad though. Those were tight, if generally unimaginative barring a few notable exceptions. Beyond that, save yourself the pain and skip this at all costs.

The Extras
The Making of Zombies Of Mass Destruction: This is just painful to watch, especially when the director talks about how good he is with his actors.
Last Call
MST3K I got a humdinger for ya here. All others should avoid this like the plague.
