A Cadaver Christmas - 4-out-of-5 Headshots

I didn't quite know what to expect going into A Cadaver Christmas (dir. Joe Zerull). On the podcast, I've reviewed movies like Silent Night, Zombie Night (dir. Sean Cain) and Santa Claus Versus the Zombies (dir. George Bonilla) back in Episode 151 of Mail Order Zombie (which you can find here - http://tinyurl.com/mozep151). Christmas-themed horror movies are a definite subgenre, and throwing zombies into the mix seems like a natural extension of that. But, let's be honest - and this isn't meant to sound overly disparaging - sometimes the zombie movies that ping my radar are . . . um . . . sometimes a little rough. I love giving them all a chance, to be sure, but with Mail Order Zombie being on hiatus, my guerilla-zombie-movie-watching tolerance may not be as high as it was earlier this year.

With The Cadaver Christmas, I needn't have worried.


It's Christmas time. The local university is closed for the holidays, but that doesn't mean there's no one on campus. A janitor (Daniel Rairdin-Hale) is cleaning the buildings while the students are away, and because I'm writing about this at mailorderzombie.com, you KNOW what he finds while he's cleaning up, right?

The story begins with the janitor finding his way to a local bar to unwind after having dealt with a number of zomb. . . er . . . cadavers. Of course, he's covered in blood and doesn't want much to do with the barkeep (Ben Hopkins) or the other customer in the bar (Hanlon Smith-Dorsey), but he's convinced to stay after an offer a festive holiday drink. The barkeep uses the delay to call his cop friend Sam (Yosh Hayashi) who reports to the bar with a prisoner in the back of his car (Andrew Harvey).

And then more zomb . . . um, cadavers show up.

It doesn't take long for the group to find their way back to the college campus, and once locked inside a building with the zomb . . . cadavers, the story is off-and-running.

A Cadaver Christmas is built as a horror comedy with grindhouse trappings. Director Joe Serull and company present their movie with the artificial lines and scratches one has come to expect of movies designed to tap into that forced nostalgia even though the movie's setting was implied to be modern day. In the case of A Cadaver Christmas, though, it wasn't distracting. It worked. It still had better sound than a film supposedly run through a movie projector thousands of times (as is typical of most modern movies designed as a pseudo-grindhouse flick), but this was a good thing because the score by William Campbell was fantastic, and quite frankly, I would have been disappointed if Campbell's music was distorted with pops and clicks.

The story is fairly straight-forward, but because the characters are fun to watch, A Cadaver Christmas has become my favorite Christmas-themed zombie movie. It's not just a movie that takes place during Christmas. The characters' actions are tied directly into the holiday season . . . and we get to see Christmas decorations used as weapons against the zomb . . . cadavers.

Performance-wise, Rairdin-Hale as the janitor is one of the stand outs, as is Ben Hopkins as functioning alcoholic Tom. Their scenes together generously gave me the most laughs, and while it took a little while to get these two together, once they stand back-to-back against the zomb . . . cadaver horde, the movie refused to let my attention drift . . . even when one of them was unconscious.


The other performances are just as solid, but that's not to say I wouldn't have minded seeing less of one and more of another. This isn't a criticism aimed at Harvey as "the perp," but what he does when he wanders off alone in the college building seemed a bit extraneous. I understand wanting to maintain that grindhouse feel by including a nude scene/sex scene, but it really tipped A Cadaver Christmas over the edge for me, especially since the only other female character in the movie - a campus security officer/student played by Jessica Denney - doesn't have very much screen time either. I do wonder how having a more equal female character thrown into the mix would have added to the chemistry between the group, but as it is, A Cadaver Christmas is a fairly testosterone-heavy movie. Outside of some of the activities of "the perp"/"the perv," however, the movie doesn't get too exploitive and allows us to spend more time laughing along during the Christmas zomb . . . cadaver action than anything else.

There are some solid zombie kills, the stakes are always high and the script was tight. The storytelling was smart - situations were set up casually and paid off when appropriate. I'm not going to spoil the moment, but this movie showed me something (non-nude) I've never seen a zombie movie, and it MADE SENSE in terms of how it was set up and played off of later. After watching the movie by myself, I bought a copy to give to someone as a Christmas gift - I enjoyed A Cadaver Christmas enough to share the zomb . . . cadaver love with someone else this holiday season.

A Cadaver Christmas can be purchased online at http://cadaverchristmas.com/. The score is also available for sale.

Helldriver - 4-out-of-5 Headshots

I have to be completely honest - I'm hot-and-cold with a lot of the Japanese splatter horror films. Sometimes, they just make me giggle and rock back and forth with a stupid grin on my face, and sometimes I find their sledgehammering of blood fountains and dismemberment to be dull and boring after a few minutes. I also find that my mood also plays a lot on whether or not I have the patience for something like Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl or Machine Girl.

I didn't know what to expect as I slipped Helldriver (dir. Yoshihiro Nishimura) into my Blu-ray player. I made sure I was in my favorite seat in my living room, the HD TV was angled just right, and my mood was neutral. I hit PLAY, and . . .

. . . my mood quickly changed.

For the better.

Helldriver tells the story of a Japan dealing with a zombie problem. In this case, the zombies aren't just undead - they're infected with something that came about when a meteor hit the earth and dusted the countryside with some sort of stellar dust. Or something like that. Honestly, it doesn't matter. The zombies now have these sprouts growing from their forehead that instantly identify them as the antagonists in the film, and apparently, harvesting these Y-shaped sprouts from the zombies' foreheads has turned into some sort of illicit drug trade since these zombie sprouts can be consumed as drugs by . . . okay, this is getting complicated. Let's try again.

Kika (Yumiko Hara) is a young woman whose father is dominated by her mother Rikka (Eihi Shiina). Oh, and her mother is not a stable woman. She and her brother - Kika's uncle - are described as "homicidal" in other reviews of this movie, and once the movie really picks up. At the beginning of the film, though, they're just bullies . . . who steal Kika's pudding and kill her father. Then this meteor comes crashing down in Japan, hitting Rikka and Kika, ripping one of their hearts and transposing it to . . . okay, let's try this again.

Helldriver deals with the very real concern of overpopulation. Japan has a zombie problem, but their are many Japanese citizens and government officials who view the zombies as important members of society . . . at least, important enough to keep around. They're not destroyed. They're not killed. They're rounded up and basically housed behind a HUGE wall in Japan. This causes problems in terms of available land space for those who don't have these alien sprouts bursting out of their foreheads, and there's a conflict in the streets and within the government when it comes to determining how to best handle this crisis.

Helldriver takes all this, gives Kika a chainsaw samurai sword, shakes it all up in a can of carbonated fake blood and lets it explode all over the screen.

The film can be broken up into two halves, mostly because the opening credits take place fifty minutes into Helldriver. The first half sets up Kika as our hero, Rikka as a zombie queen, a group of drug dealers and zombie-sprout collectors all coming together just as there's a violent change-up in Japanese government policy regarding how the zombies are to be treated. We learn about this new zombified world, get splashed with a load of blood and watch a lot of zombie violence. The effects are solid, Kô Nakagawa's score is perfectly suited to the imagery on screen, and the overall mix of editing, cinematography (courtesy of Shu G. Momose) created a great origin story.

That the opening credits take place halfway through seemed odd, but it also set up the second half in which there's a new government in place, Kika and company are on their way to stop the zombie queen, and we eventually meet Kaito (Kazuki Namioka), whose clearly based on the Tallahassee-from-Zombieland mode (right down to wearing a distinct hat).

More chainsaw-lined weapons and armor, a sword fight between a zombie and a car, and a final sequence that seemed to pull some inspiration from Clive Barker's short story "In the Hills, the Cities" . . . with missiles, and Helldriver really became a smiling mess for me.

The movie's over-the-top, and I do think it could have been cut down a LITTLE bit in terms of running-time, I had a good time watching the film. It's not something I would have chosen to watch on purpose (see above re: my previous experience with Yoshihiro Nishimura's previous films), and while this isn't something that will drive me back to Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl, I will find myself watching Helldriver again.

Preferably with a group. This is a PERFECT group film, especially if that group knows what to expect. In my case, the only person to join me while I was watching Helldriver was Bren, who only walked into the room when I started giggling because the film's heroes were being attacked by a raining barrage of angry zombie heads. (She left the room when the screen literally filled with explosions . . . for almost no reason . . . the explosions that, is. She had no reason to actually leave the room. I mean, the explosions were AWESOME, especially on Blu-ray.)

Is it fair to give this movie a rating of 4-out-of-5 Headshots? I think so . . . especially if you know what you're in for when you start it up. Chances are you're not going to pick up the movie unless you're a fan of this sub-genre of horror-comedy film, but just in case, the director himself introduces the movie and invites you to kick back and enjoy Helldriver for what it is.

Helldriver hits DVD and BLu-ray November 22. The official English-language website for the film can be found http://www.sushi-typhoon.com/films/helldriver.

Brother D on The B-Movie Cast

Download The B-Movie Cast #170 here!

Brother D appears on Episode 170 of The B-Movie Cast:

On today’s show we are just back from our vacation to London and Paris and we are exhausted. So our good friend Brother D from The Mail Order Zombie podcast was nice enough to create a great music show for us. We will all be back next week with a new show.
We're living in a grand era of horror and genre documentaries. Three of the big horror franchises from the 80s and 90s have been given the documentary treatment (Halloween: 25 Years of Terror, His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th and Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy). There are documentaries covering horror authors (Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown), horror sub-genres (Zombiemania and Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film) and horror conventions (Monster Bash - Origins). We even have multiple documentaries covering horror hosts (Every Other Day Is Halloween, American Scary and Virginia Creepers: The Horror Host Tradition of the Old Dominion).

Image Entertainment and Something Weird Video dip their toes into the genre documentary pool with Godfather of Gore: The Herschell Gordon Lewis Documentary on September 27, 2011. However, horror fans may want to brace themselves. While H. G. Lewis is perhaps most well-known for his, for better or worse, groundbreaking horror films, nearly the first third of the documentary spends its screen time exploring the pre-bloody history of Lewis-the-filmmaker. We're given his background, how it intersects with the history of the exploitation film and the "nudie cuties" and what ultimately led him to break the bloody ground of Blood Feast. While I certainly find the non-Hollywood-side of filmmaking history fascinating, it does get a bit drawn out in this documentary. I didn't need to see as many clips from the nudie cuties; I didn't need the sound effects whenever someone's genitalia accidentally appeared in any of those film clips; I didn't need to hear everyone bragging about producer David Friedman's ability to talk women out of their clothes for his collaborations with Lewis.

Having Joe Bob Briggs and Frank Henenlotter pop up to express how awful the nudie cuties were (not just Lewis' contributions but the entire subgenre) certainly helped. I laughed out loud when Henenlotter appeared on screen to tell us how "stupid" these films were.

When the documentary gets to the gore-portion of Lewis' career, it doesn't hold back (not that it held back when referencing all the nudie cuties!). The footage is bloody, exploitive, graphic and gruesome. Surviving and available cast and crew reflect on their time working with Lewis and company, and we get a near film-by-film chronology of the films Lewis and Friedman worked on together. There's a short mention made of a falling out between the two, and then we're back to the filmography, sans Friedman. Friedman and Lewis definitely have current chemistry on screen, however; if there was any serious bad blood between the two, it must have long mellowed by now.

The documentary is interesting, and takes us to the sticky floors of film history. It moves along at a quick pace, sometimes to a fault. For a documentary called Godfather of Gore, I was surprised to come away from it feeling as if we rushed through some of the gore films. Perhaps this is indicative of my own film interests, but I didn't need as much time spent on Lewis' nudie cutie filmography.

Perhaps it was because of this quick pace that some elements of Lewis' career were glossed over or skipped all together. There's no reference made to the film Monster A-Go-Go, which Lewis kinda-sorta co-directed with Bill Rebane. The movie Something Weird is covered, but, despite this documentary being released by Something Weird Video, no connection is drawn between the film and its influence on the founder of SWV. Mention is made of Lewis' adversarial relationship with Connie Mason which apparently began when she first appeared in Blood Feast, but this is never discussed further (it's implied that Mason had a very diva-like attitude, and since Lewis is portrayed as a efficient quick-and-dirty movie maker, I would have liked to have learned how he dealt with this "diva" and why he decided to cast her again in his next film Two Thousand Maniacs!).

Mason doesn't appear in the documentary (except for an end credits sequence in which she appears on stage with Lewis and company at a horror convention singing the Two Tousand Maniacs! title song). There is a distinct lack of women overall, and most of the horror film clips showcase women getting killed (granted, most of Lewis' film victims were women, but there were some men killed in ...Maniacs!), which does give Godfather of Gore: The Herschell Gordon Lewis Documentary an odd, albeit slight, sexist edge. Of course, considering what kinds of films Lewis made, what the market was, etc., this may have been the intent of director Henenlotter.

There is a nice spotlight shone on regular Lewis performer actor William Kerwin. It quickly became obvious that everyone who ever worked with Kerwin remembers the late actor fondly, and it was nice to hear stories about how he not only performed in front of the camera, but helped whenever and wherever he could behind the camera. Additionally, footage from an unfinished H. G. Lewis film called An Eye for an Eye has been restored and cobbeled together for this DVD release, and I think it's a real shame this particular film was never completed. It definitely has a broader feel than most of Lewis' genre output at the time, and would have perhaps made an interesting eventual double-feature pic to play against X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes at some point.

John Waters appears in the documentary and makes an interesting point: there's no such thing as exploitation cinema anymore. Everything that was shocking - nudity, gore, etc. - has all been co-opted by Hollywood and appears in mainstream films now. Perhaps this is why Lewis got out of film industry when he did, but, again, this documentary doesn't explore this stage of Lewis' career too deeply either. He just kind of . . . stopped making movies. He went on to have a successful career in marketing, and that's that. The DVD ends. No mention of the Blood Feast sequel or the Two Thousand Maniacs! remake. We see some footage of Lewis at a business conference, Waters, Briggs and company reflect on Lewis' place in film history, and the end credits role.

While I certainly wish the documentary had been less love letter and more historical document, I still enjoyed the Godfather of Gore: The Herschell Gordon Lewis Documentary. Briggs doesn't say much more than he's already written in his book Profoundly Disturbing: The Shocking Movies that Changed History and Waters certainly doesn't dive into anything new from him, either. I don't think it's something I'll go back to again, but it did give me some ideas of some movies to add to my To-Watch list.

Mail Order Zombie: Episode 167.5 - Zombies! panel from Crypticon Seattle

Download Mail Order Zombie #167.5 here!

We're dipping back into the Crypticon well with Episode 167.5 of Mail Order Zombie. This week, Brother D presents a recording from the Zombies! panel. It was a sort of free-for-all panel that took place Saturday night across the hall from the Saturday night loud-music-and-booze-filled party, so it sounds like there's a LOT more excitement happening in the room than they might have really been. Or not. Listen, and you decide. On the panel were Brother D, Eric Pope, Reverend en Fugue, Steven J. Holetz, Timothy W. Long and Mark Rahner.

New album from Midnight Syndicate - 'Carnival Arcane' coming in August!

Dead-Letter Award-nominated gothic horror soundtrack musicians Midnight Syndicate will be releasing their fourteenth studio album, entitled Carnival Arcane, on August 2nd. "The theme of the new disc surrounds the Lancaster-Rigby Carnival, a shadowy, turn-of-the-century traveling circus with more than a few skeletons in its closet," said Edward Douglas. "The Victorian and Edwardian eras are a big source of inspiration for us. They also marked the beginning of the heyday for traveling carnivals, so that's the time period we chose to set the disc in. We spent a lot of time researching early-20th century circuses and carnivals to ensure that the sounds and music work together to really immerse you in this world and the time period. There's also a big tip of the top hat to Mr. Bradbury whose work inspired many of the more horrific elements that appear in the latter half of the disc." Carnival Arcane also features the vocal talents of Jason Carter (Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth, Babylon 5 and The Dead Matter) and fellow The Dead Matter cast members Brian Van Camp, and Dennis Carter, Jr.

The CD will be available through the Midnight Syndicate website, Amazon, iTunes, as well as at Halloween retailers nationwide. It will also be available at select Hot Topic stores starting August 8th. Preview tracks will be made available on the band's Facebook page and website shortly.

From the CD insert: The train smoke drifting through the pale moon light signals the arrival of the Lancaster-Rigby Carnival. In a forest clearing, these mesonoxian visitors await your arrival. Stroll along the midway and behold wonders both fantastic and macabre from every corner of the globe. And be sure to ride their one of a kind carousel for an experience you'll never, ever forget.

Yes, it IS possible to have a post-apocalypse without zombies, and this is the first monthly episode of MOZ's Post-Apocalyptic Summer. Brother D reviews the movie Steel Dawn (dir. Lance Hool) and he's joined by Miss Bren to talk about the movies The War Game (dir. Peter Watkins) and Panic in Year Zero! (dir. Ray Milland). We have a question for the PAQ, or Post-Apocalyptic Quiz, post-apocalyptic news, post-apocalyptic movie trailers . . . and the Feedback Discussion (and even the briefest of mentions of post-apocalyptic porn).

The Argentine apocalyptic horror film Phase 7 will hit theaters on July 13th for a special engagement! PHASE 7 premiered at SXSW and will now join the “Night Terrors” film series where The Collective, AMC Theatres and Bloody-Disgusting.com have teamed up to distribute the best new horror and thriller titles from the festival and international markets to AMC theatres across America.



In Phase 7, Coco (Daniel Hendler, Lost Embrace) has just moved to a new apartment with his wife Pipi (Jazmin Stuart, The Paranoids), who’s seven months pregnant. At first, they don’t seem to notice the growing chaos around them, but when authorities quarantine their building after a deadly pandemic breaks out, Coco joins forces with his off-kilter, but well-prepared and stocked next-door neighbor Horacio to defend his refrigerator and keep Pipi safe. Meanwhile, outside the building, Buenos Aires—and the world as the apartment denizens know it, is disappearing. The world is ending; got ammo? Phase 7 is written and directed by Nicolás Goldbart, produced by Sebastian Aloi and executive produced by Steven Schneider (Insidious, Paranormal Activity)

Can you count the number of times Brother D drops the "needle-scratching-across-a-record" sound effect into Episode 165 of Mail Order Zombie, your weekly zombie movie and media podcast since 2008? Someone needs to go into his hard drive and delete that .mp3 . . . maybe while they're listening to the two reviews this week? Brother D takes at look at Garden of the Dead (dir. John Hayes) and Super Zombies: Long Live the Dead II (dir. Keith Samland). Some contest winners are announced, and a new contest - courtesy of Top Trumps - is launched, and the rest of the show features what you've come to expect from MOZ - Professor Chad and the Zombie Aptitude Test, Need-a-Nickname Scott and the Zombie Beat and Miss Bren joining Brother D for the Feedback Discussion.
