15 Second Review: Zombies, Zombies, Zombies

When a film opens by mocking the ludicrous conventions of zombie films (experiments into creating super-soldiers "gone wrong", say), it better be either funny or clever. Zombies Zombie Zombies is neither.  The acting is weak, the story goes nowhere. The strip club is mainly used as an incidental location (and to display some T&A) rather than being integrated into the story. Its only other use is to enable the makers to provide some fairly offensive commentary on sex-work. Hurrah. It might sound like I'm asking a lot, but when a film like Zombie Strippers can provide both better comedy, and a wittier commentary on stripping as consumption, Zombies Zombie Zombies comes across as notably weak, even by its admittedly low standards.
