More short films, kiddies! Today we have PSYCHOPATHS, written by Mick Franklin and directed by Craig Burrows.
It was made in the UK, possibly Scotland. There is a wide range of accents going on and I couldn’t place it precisely.
I should note that the film was sent to me with the title ZOMBIES VS MAFIA. Not sure why the difference in title, but that’s pretty much what the film is about. We follow a group of thugs and roughians going about their crime lord-esque business but with one major caveat –
They appear to be using zombies as their heavys. That’s right, the strong arm tactics are being employed by using the undead to coerce cooperation. Imagine a film like SCARFACE or BOONDOCK SAINTS with zombies.
The film is pretty low budget, but that’s never kept me away from anything. And to be honest, maybe not the best acting overall that I’ve ever seen. Still, it’s a fun film. There’s a lot of good stuff going on and the zombie designs are unusual, which is pretty keen.
The score is notable, though. The music for the film is provided by a band called FLESH RESONANCE, a “futuristic darkwave” act from the UK that has provided music for several other productions.
If you find yourself in a position to watch this film, do it. It’s a good time.
So using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film 3 zombies.
