A blood and gore extravaganza

"Apparently, some people actually enjoy watching a senseless movie that exists for no other reason than throwing as much blood and gore in the viewer's face as possible. I know this because I am one of those people. If ever a company lived up to its name, it is Reel Gore Productions. I am in awe at the boldness and daring of director Andreas Schnaas; the man has taken his love of blood and gore to a height most of us sick, demented viewers have only dreamed about watching. The special effects are not great and are even rather sadly fake on several occasions, but give the man his due: Schnaas threw just about every type of horrible death imaginable into this movie. If you're squeamish, you might want to stop reading at this point. Countless men are decapitated in a number of ways; throats are sliced open; fingers are chopped off; several folks are literally cut in two both horizontally and vertically; hands and feet are pushed completely through victims' chests and stomachs; men fall in bunches to the hot lead of machine guns, shotguns, and revolvers; hooks literally rip the skin from men's stomachs and one guy has his face peeled right off his head. Oh, it's a beautiful thing. I can't even tell you how many bodies this film leaves in its evil wake, but it has to be at least a hundred. There's one scene that is so gruesome I can't even describe it in this review. In case you are wondering about the plot, I can tell you the movie does actually have one-not much of one, but it has one. These three loser guys arrive on a seemingly deserted island for no discernible reason and are quickly captured by an army of smelly, unbathed men wearing trash cans on their heads. They belong to the Infantry of Doom, some kind of disturbing paramilitary group led by the Meister (who looks like Rob Zombie will look in about two hundred years) and his son Karl (or Meister Junior). Andreas Schnaas plays the part of Karl, and he makes the movie come alive as the only character who really seems to care about what he is doing. Anyway, our three unlucky losers are forced to watch the Meister discipline his troops (and it ain't pretty), then two of them are sent off with a camp rebel to serve as the prey to be hunted by the evil undead minions of the Meister's personal mad scientist, Dr. Serius. Serius is creating zombified soldiers to be used for the extermination of mankind, and you can tell he's not playing for the good guys by the fake little Hitler mustache he wears. More people die, some ninjas show up, and you get the mother of all fight scenes at the end. Zombie Doom is actually the third movie in a trilogy whose name I can't name here (although the editorial reviewer can and does), but it doesn't matter if you've seen the first two movies or not. The only ticket you need for this gorefest is a love of extreme horror. Make sure this is what you really want to see before you watch it; this isn't the type of gore you will find at your local cinema, so be prepared for extreme acts of human evisceration. This movie drew a few oooh's out of me, and this ain't my first gory rodeo. I loved this movie. I don't care how stupid it is, nor do I care that it's a German film with the worst English dubbing known to man. Zombie Doom gets a very bloody five stars from this reviewer."
Gory action filled fun

"To prevent any confusion, this movie is part 3 of Andreas Schnaas' Violent ... trilogy, which goes under the name of Zombie Doom, VS 3, and Infantry of Doom. All the same movie. I recently got the dvd of "Zombie Doom" which also has a bonus film "Zombie 90" on the disc. Both movies are pretty bad as horror or action movies go, but as splatter movies they are pretty good. Some versions are in German with subtitles, the Shock-o-Rama dvd has english dubbing (done by the same group that dubbed the Premutos dvd). This dubbing is laughably bad, you will either hate it or won't mind cause it adds even more humour to an already humorous splatter comedy. Make no mistake, this movie is not to be taken seriously, it was intended that way. If you don't have an open mind going in you're likely to hate it. The plot really has little to do with the first two in the series, although the 10 minute gang fight introduction of VS 2 loosely fits with the story of part 3. Karl the Butcher jr. (played well by Schnaas himself as usual) has rounded up a group of metal masked maniacs to rule over a desolate island. Their weaponry mainly consists of spears, machetes, and guns for the higher ranking warriors. The meister wields a shotgun. They brutally kill and conduct sick, gruesome experiments on anyone who invades their territory. When 3 lost travelers happen to become ship wrecked on the island, the stage is set for mayhem and bloody violence, Schnaas style. The men are captured and released to be hunted by the infantry as sport. They meet up with some former members of the clan and some kung fu masters but stupidly go out on their own. Not long after, they meet a nasty demise at the hands of the infantry. The martial artists decide to form a resistance and attempt to take revenge on Karl and his father. The following battle scenes are chaotic and graphic as you would expect, but before they can get their hands on "the meister" they must destroy a group of zombies, a troop of ninjas and dozens of soldiers! You'll have to see what happens for yourself, expect a smorgas board of gory killing and butchery. Schnaas has clearly been inspired by zombie, kung fu, horror, and action films and he throws it all at you. There's a little bit of everything, but the real highlights are the gore scenes. People, I ain't joking when I say there are some of the coolest gore scenes ever put to film here. And there are many of them. Heads are split open, bodies cut in half, limbs hacked off, eyes gouged, spines ripped out, etc. All in blood spraying detail!!!The most decapitations I've ever seen in one movie! The effects are considerably better than his previous films, on many occasions my jaw dropped. If you like Olaf Ittenbach's films you're gonna like this. The few negative aspects of Zombie Doom such as poor dubbing, stupid storyline and low budget props (the infantry's shields are garbage can lids) are easily forgiven when there's this much carnage taking place. This gorehound was well satisfied. Zombie 90 is the only extra, but it's a decent gore flick on it's own. With even worse dubbing, acting and plot you get the feeling that everything is just an excuse to throw buckets of blood and guts at the camera. Works for me. Fast forward the slow parts and you will be treated to a frenzy of outragous gore effects and no holds barred zombie madness. This one's a real bloodbath folks, right up there with Premutos although some of the effects are a bit second rate."
Misleading title, plenty of gore, and hilarious dubbing.

"For starters, I don't know why this movie was called "Zombie Doom" as there were only three zombies in this movies who had a total screen time of 2 minutes... Whatever..Like most of these low budget romps, the movie makes little sense, which I am sure you could ascertain by the previous sentence. I would really like to give the plot away in this review but there is nothing to give away. The only thing I can do is tell you what I saw: three ninjas, a steel mask wearing cult, a disfigured leader(the Meister!), a Hitler wannabe mad scientist, three white guys that show up for no reason other than being killed in horrible ways, and some zombies.There is alot of gory kills in this movie but they look so cartoonish you have no choice but to laugh at it. The best thing about this movie, though is the hilarious dubbing. All characters sound like they are talking in a cave, as there is some heavy reverb whenever they speak. The dialogue itself is hilarious - I am willing to bet money that the words you hear being spoken in no way resembles the original dialog.Get this movie if you love gore and get a kick out of the dubbing in any of those Saturday morning Kung-Fu flicks, otherwise, stay clear."
A sick gore comedy

"This movie is great. Andy Schnaas is the man. It contains some of the sickest gore i've seen (and believe me, i'm a horror buff) Look out Tom Savini! It contains just enough humor to make the gore SICK AND FUNNY! I give it 3 thumbs up! Check out http://www.anthroproject.de for Andy's latest flicks!"
