At least there were piercings…

So last night I watched the incredibly cheap and not really very good zombie movie The Stink of Flesh. The plot is built around the question: what does a sex-addicted swinger couple do after a zombie apocalypse? In this case, the husband goes out looking for guys to screw his depraved wife… and the husband has a naked female zombie chained up in a shed as his plaything. It sounds more pornographic than it actually is. It's crazy cheap, shot on what looks like consumer camcorders, with minimal production and editing work, hardly any effort on makeup, and so on…

Unless you're a backyard zombie film fan, you should probably avoid it, but I mention it here because there were a decent number of pierced and tattooed folks in the movie (althogh somehow I highly doubt they're SAG members… more like friends and family of the director). Anyway, the first girl to get killed has stretched lobes and a variety of facial piercings, and the zombie girl has nipple rings, a rook, and more (as seen in an earlier flashback where she's seduced by the wife).

I'm probably being a little unfair in my review because I went into the movie unaware that it was a backyard project (I assumed it was at least a “B-movie”)… There are some better reviews up at Amazon and Rotten Tomatoes, and of course at the official site. Meh, complaining about production value in projects like this is lame. For what it is, it was fun, and made me want to go out and shoot a zombie movie myself. I don't know what it will be about, but it will also include naked zombies with nipple rings. Lots of them.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
