Plot: In Louisiana, a soldier returning from Vietnam finds his wife in bed with her lover and he kills him, her and a couple of friends, but he is attacked by a bird and he loses his eyes. Years later, the bodies have not been found and the former soldier is the specialist in birds Dr. Fred Brown (Vaughn), living in a house nearby the swamp. When a group of college students is assigned for a research of a woodpecker near extinction, they head to Dr. Brown's house to get some tips of how to find the rare bird. Then they drive through the swamp where they find the house where the murders happen and they decide to stay there. During the night, weird things happen and they are attacked by the victims of Dr. Brown.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? AHHHHHHHHHH!

"Excuse me, Robert Vaughn, the distinguished actor with over 200 film and Television credits, how do you feel about your experience with ZOMBIE 5 and how do you live with yourself?"

I thought so. There's a reason why this man has so many credits - he's a showbiz whore and he'll be in anything for money. He sleepwalks throughout his entire performance, if you can call it a performance. This picture is bad. Most of this entire series is bad. And don't try to make sense of the numbering of the sequels. They're all out of order. ZOMBIE 4 was filmed after this one. It's dumb as hell, boring as all get out, there are barely any zombies, and the birds hardly do shit. The ONLY good thing about ZOMBIE 5? There is no ZOMBIE 6.
