Yes, well, it’s the week of Halloween. So consider this a 32 Days of Halloween-themed mental sorbet: the Ray Dennis Steckler WTF classic, The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies.
I remember I first saw this years and years ago as part of some television horror special, maybe a history of horror cinema or something like that. And honestly, I thought this was a joke trailer: the sort of thing you’d find in Amazon Women on the Moon or something. But no, it’s quite real. And as you can see from this trailer, Joe Bob Briggs has taken a swipe at it, and the MST3K guys went after it at one point too. It just sort of begs for that kind of attention.
Watch this and you’ll see why:
A bonus bit of strangeness, and why you should be cautious of people wearing blue hoodies. What you’re about to watch would only make marginally more sense if you saw it in the context of the film as a whole…
Okay, that bit where he’s running about and the women keep turning and changing formation? They so totally ripped that off for Batman Begins.
Please tell me somewhere somebody’s adapted this for the stage.
