Zombie 4 (1989)

Director: Claudio Fragasso

Starring: Jeff Stryker, Candice Daly, Massimo Vanni, Jim Gaines, Don Wilson, Adrianne Joseph

More info: IMDb

Plot: 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.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? Noooooo.

This is one series that gets worse with every picture. The only thing they really got right is filming it in the jungle. It's ridiculous how many zombie movies there are and so few of them take place in the jungle. That's one great and creepy locale that opens up all kinds of great imagery. Anyway, this might be best watched with a group to help you get through the slow spots.

The makeup effects are dodgy, the cheesy synth score is poor, the acting is bad - everything you need for a few laughs as long as there is alcohol and someone to enjoy it with. If not, then you'll be bored and mildly amused. There's only one thing that could make this better and it's knowing that ZOMBIE 5 is even worse.
