After Death (Film Review)

“Zombie 4: After Death”? Again I’m not sure why they call it zombie 4 but overall it wasn’t horrible as what people say on the internet or in reviews. Claudio Fragasso does work great with low budget when he tries, So sit back and relax throw this hour and a half of none stop Zombie Violence!!!  None stop yes and low budget you can tell and stars a porn actor and an mature American and Italian cast…
But is still one of the last Zombie films made in Italy near the end of the cycle in 1989.

A simple story of a woman goes back to the island where her parents were killed. They had been working on a cure for cancer and accidentally raised the dead by angering a voodoo priest. With the woman is a group of mercenaries and they meet up with some other researchers. They raise the dead again and all hell breaks loose.

The story is never boring but full of errors and is rushed and cheap…But never lacks. The start might be a bit confusing for many (Their is also samrt Zombies in this lol)… I heard there is a longer version of this film in Germany. BTW I think they only called this Zombi 4 for American markets to get in the films but it still says After Death.

The acting is pretty good and an all English cast and a porn actor named Jeff Stryker (One of his few none porn roles). The direction is just shoot and run but the special effects are pretty good for its low budget and I think they filmed this on the same set as Zombi 3 (an official sequel) because he failed at the Italian box-office and that was to cut costs (Oh and same location).
Some okay music and some cool looking zombies… And some faced paced and good editing.

Overall I will give it a 70% only based on it’s fun factor and there is nothing to wrong with it (Minus the ending). My final verdict is go for it…

Jesse's "After Death" score 70-100%
