Stacy: Attack of the Schoolgirl Zombies. Schoolgirl zombies, fantastic!
The plot (and I use the term loosely) is, as ever for these films, completely bonkers. Zombies by nature, are bizarre, but those wacky Japanese have to go and toss in a ‘white powder’ (make of that what you will) and NDH, Near Death Happiness. Oh, and the fact that the ‘zombification process’ (TM, Ronnie) only affects schoolgirls. To combat the threat of ‘Stacies’ (the films codeword for zombies) the Government has created the Romero Repeat Kill Squad (homage? You betcha) who ‘dispose’ of the Stacies.
The story starts nicely enough:
Then starts to drag a bit. It seems like they tried to inject some romance and back story, but in a film like this, it’s pointless.
The gore is quite good though:
… which is always a bonus, and well done for a low budget afair.
There are several nods towards other movies, the obvious Romero mention and a nice nod to Evil Dead:
Truth be told though… it’s not too great a film. Schoolgirl zombies is enough to make Japanese zombie fans cream their pants, but here, it just aint working.
Now, for the love of God, someone release Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl on DVD! PLEEEEAASE!!! I’m begging!
