Sometime ago some scientists on an island (in the freakin' rainforest again no less!) were trying to create a cure for cancer. Nope! Their results not only backfired, but cost the life of a young girl who happened to be the daughter of a Voodoo priest.To say the least, he was less than ecstatic. He sacrifices his wife and opens the "gates to Hell" to unleash the "living dead" Muwahahaha*cough*
Well wouldn't you?
Fast forward to the present. A group of "Soldiers of Fortune", one of which is the "soul survivor" from the afformentioned who just happens to hold the key to everything and, coincidentally, a group of hikers end up on the island. Give you three guesses what happens. Nope. Try again.

**"Jeff Stryker's" real name is Chuck Peyton. *snicker*
Few pieces missing to this puzzle fa-sho! The "zombies" played more like those of Demons. (i.e.- goo drooling, teeth, etc.) Either that or there are a whole bunch of cats are M.I.A. from the "Foot" clan and Shredder might be a bit shorthanded. "Zombies" they ain't!
Don't believe me? Hell, for one they talk, use guns, run, fight, you name it. On top of that they're some scrappy little bastards. What's even better is that they have their periods where their "Red Bull" wers off and they all just stand around waiting to get their wings. All the more reason to like this movie!
This movie is so badly constructed and edited that you never know what the freakdamnasshell is going on. You looking to paint your canvas with "all things red", worry not. You'll get your filling here, buddy! SFX were pretty kick ass, too.
C'mon people! Don Wilson + Jeff Stryker + Zombies?! If you don't want your seat then move, fool!

When I first read that this movie had "free-for-all" adult porn star Jeff Stryker (Chuck Peyton) in it, I was so sure that there was going to be a huge moustache waiting for me when I popped this one in. And there was!! But not on Stryker himself, unfortunately..but it was there dammit.
The actual title on the DVD doesn't even mention that it's a "Zombie" series movie, which I'm pretty sure means that it wasn't supposed to be in the line. Like the Captain said, the zombies in the movie are more like the "Demons" series...actually, they are more like leaping ninja monkey zombies that can shoot and talk randomly, but mostly stand and vomit green Jello (not the band.)
It's definitely an 80's movie, though. With the "Survivor-ish" soundtrack and the magic marker special effects, it still manages to be reminiscent of 70's campy zombie fests. Brain dead characters ("wait here so I can wander off there to get killed for no reason"), eye rips, bad dubbing, all in full effect. Speaking of dubbing, having some 40 year old smoker do the voice of a 5 year old kid is never a good idea.
I've learned a lot of things from movies like these. For instance, from this movie, I've learned if you are getting attacked, bitten, or your face slowly peeled off, the best thing to do is stand there and look frightened. Another thing is that Pac-Man came from hell (take a look at those candles). Yet another is that ancient books of the dead that have "Book of Death" printed on the cover can apparently be found on islands tucked away near the entrance to hell, which is the best place to have an entrance/exit/whatever to hell, because it's so convenient. Why were they trying to close the hole anyway? It'd been 20 years and nothing had gotten off the damn island, why worry about it? The ninja monkeys can't swim, I guess, so fuck it and go home!
On the interviews on the DVD, Chuck Peyton (who looks like he got ambushed for the interview, he has a "What is this for again?" look on his face the whole time) says that they shot the whole movie in a damn week! He also said that director Fragasso let him "wing it." No shit, Chuck. I'm pretty sure you weren't the only one "winging it." But what do you expect from the writer/director of Troll 2???

Voodoo Priest - "Aim here. But remember, I'll persecute you. After I'm dead, I'll come looking for you, to feed on your intestines. I'll be in your nightmares".
Jenny - "These graves are empty."
Rod - "They didn't pay their rent. They got evicted."
Mad - "Sure. Its only natural to feel frightened. It's fear that saves your life when you're fighting. Waiting for Charlie to drop out of the trees at night. Those are the times that really count for something in a man's life. When you discover if you've got balls or not."
Rod - "Shoot the motherfucker!"
