Synopsis

Hell of the Living Dead
In this woeful "zombie" film, an accident occurs in a scientific lab in Papua-New Guinea sending out a dangerous chemical in a cloud of green smoke and turning the technicians and locals into ghouls ravenous for human flesh. An Italian news reporter (Margit Evelyn Newton) and her crew land on the island in search of the story, quickly followed by a search-and-destroy mission of soldiers. From that point onward, highly unreal dialogue ("something eating you?") would classify the movie as a cult-camp favorite. When the mismatched or unmatched sequences in the film are combined with ugly color and moronic dialogue, it is difficult to tell whether the living-dead or brain-dead dominate the film. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Rats
A hybrid of the post-nuke action and gross-out gore film, this passably entertaining venture from splatter-maven Bruno Mattei (directing here as "Vincent Dawn"), aided by Claudio Fragasso (as "Clyde Anderson"), features killer rats attacking bikers in an apocalyptic wasteland. A nuclear bomb made the surface world unlivable, so most of humankind lived underground for many years. This drove rats to the surface, where they became super-intelligent flesh-hungry mutants. After about a hundred years, a group calling themselves the "new primitives" returned to the surface to try and revitalize society. The action picks up in 225 A.B. (that's After the Bomb), when a motley group of cycle-riding toughs led by flamethrower-toting stud Kurt (Richard Raymond) and his girlfriend, Diana (Cindy Leadbetter), bed down at an abandoned research lab for the night. They see lab equipment and a bunch of mangled corpses being gnawed on by vermin, but don't know what to make of it. Says one: "Computers and corpses make a bad mixture." After the usual nighttime sexual hijinks, the rats come out to play. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
