A killer party you won't forget! "Night of the Living Dead" meets "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (with a stop-over for "Rock 'n' Roll High School") in this spoof of teenage monster movies, delinquency dramas, sports movies... more », and a brace of other film genres. When a group of high school underachievers get some bad weed from a dealer named Mussolini (Steve McCoy), the dealer dies and gets dumped in a river contaminated by nuclear waste. Quicker than you can say Three Mile Island, Mussolini is back, green-skinned and super-strong, killing the kids who did him in, ripping them apart one by one. "I Was a Teenage Zombie" is a genre-twister of a movie--one part teen exploitation flick, one part monster movie, and one part lunkhead comedy--the midnight movie to end them all!« less
A great low-budget horror-comedy. Starts out as a teen-flick where the group gets ripped off on a marijuana deal. They try to get their money back, but end up killing the dealer. He returns as a zombie to seek vengeance and starts to pick off the kids. They realize they need someone of equal super zombie strength. Hilarity ensues.

"This movie empitomizes cheezy horror! Mooselini's character was hilarious. Nothing beats the heads flying! 2 points for this movie!! It's right up there next to Return to Horror High. Anyone who was a teenager should buy this movie NOW!"
FUNNY AS HELL!

"This movie looks like it was filmed with a camcorder! I didn't realize, when I purchased this DVD, that it was going to be a total amateurish delight! I mean the editing is even horrible, the sound doesn't match up! The acting is atrocious! The storyline is pathetic! I LOVE IT! There's a scene where the Hispanic, zombie, drug-dealer rapes a hapless teenage girl to death! He breaks her body in half and all she says is "You can't do thaaaaaaaaaat!" In another hilarious scene a cop, who is hot on the trial of the zombie drug peddler, gets punched in the forehead and sort of has a 2 second delayed reaction to the pain. Then he falls backward and screams like a dying duck! Oh, I'm telling you buy this movie! If you love watching horrible actors not totally devoted to their parts, this one is for you!"
Funny spoof of zombie movies ruined by poor video quality

"I Was a Teenage Zombie is a really funny spoof of those 1950s monster films and zombie films. A drug dealer is accidentally killed by teens and then the teens throw him in the river where a nuclear liquid brings him back as a zombie and then he starts revenge. The video release is poor because the movie skips a lot even if you clean the VCR. Please release this one on a new DVD with special features(Commentaries,deleted scenes) because the VHS/DVD versions are horrendous. This one deserves a Special Edition DVD for fans of this spoof."
Campy take off on high school horror films of 50's and 60's.

"I was young reckless and in love, then I was dead, young reckless and in love-I was a teenage Zombie. The film has a killer new wave soundtrack but it wasn't filmed that well or recorded that well but actually is pretty funny if you let it. As hard as it is to believe the film was distributed by Janus Films who have the Criterion Collection. Unfortunately the soundtrack album is out of print."
HALARIOUS! ONE OF MY NEW HORROR FAVES!!!

"I was a teenage zombie...when i purchased this movie i didn't know what to expect...I was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED, the movie is funny and it has mild gore (due to image entertainment's editing crew). I would highly recommend buying this movie if you have some extra cash, if u like movies like Evil Dead 2, Bad Taste, or Evil Ed this is definatly one to put in your collection. Anyways to let you know all horror films i've bought that image entertainment has released has cut out a lot of the gore scenes. I probably would next expect to see this movie re-released by a different company due to lack of popularity and peoples lack of humor."
