Naked Zombie Girl review

A Zombie Flick Stripped to its Bare Essentials

by TS Alan

Plot:
It’s simple. Three people in a beat up 1971 Cadillac are fleeing a zombie uprising, one of whom has been bitten. The car breaks down, the bitten man blows his brains out, the passenger in the back seat gets eaten, and the female driver flees the undead and seeks refuge in a deserted shack, where the only weapon she can find to defend herself is a chainsaw. Oh, did I forget the part where our heroine gets her dress ripped off?

Summary:
Naked Zombie Girl is a simplistic tale of survival during a zombie uprising, excised of most exposition, character development and dialog. Our vixen Barbara, impressively played by the beautiful Meghan Chadeayne, delivers the story naked with barely a word spoken while wielding a chainsaw. Her nudity is never sexualized or gratuitous, many scenes are strategically shot to obscure or re-direct the nudity and focus on the acting.

There is definitely a homage to the Evil Dead in this film but that’s all right, it’s done well. You can see that director Rickey Bird Jr has a love for the genre of not only zombie flicks, but also the Grindhouse exploitation style — and he does it well.

The film is not without a few rough edges. The opening car scene could have used a slight trim and the Grindhouse style effects were a tad overused. However, this does not detract from Bird’s talent as a fledgling director or the talent of the cast and crew, who have made a good old fashion zombie horror flick filled with gratuitous gore and carnage. Considering the micro-budget this short film was produced on and the quality of the makeup effects, it is certainly a notable debut and makes you wonder what could have been accomplished with a larger budget. Hopefully, we’ll see.
