Range 15

★☆☆☆ – (2016) – A group of soldiers take on the zombie armageddon with much glee and cursing. This is one of those occasions where if you don’t laugh within the first five minutes, you won’t laugh at all (unless you’re high). Constantly attempts jokes amid a common horror backdrop, but aside from a chuckle or two, nothing is funny and the bro jargon gets old fast.

The Battery

★★☆☆ – (2012) – Two baseball players try to survive a living dead outbreak in rural America. Not the worst thing to happen to the zombie genre, but far from the best since it never does anything particularly new. The few characters are engaging at first, but like the story around them, they don’t take long to not do anything special.

Stealthhunters

★½☆☆ – (1991) – After taking on military personnel, zombie soldiers infiltrate a group of campers. A total bore that promises action but only delivers one sleepy groan after another. There’s no humor, no excitement, and no character who stands out as anything but a stiff with a pulse.

Raw Force

★★½☆ – (1982) – Nazis lure the women of a martial arts crew to an island where the dead consume females to survive. A strange and bombastic blend of fighting among humans and zombies that tosses in a ton of nudity along the way. Gets tiring after a while, and the low-level humor tends to kill the fun, but it’s nearly impossible to look away from.

Breakdown Lane

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A woman with car issues becomes stranded in a vacant area where the living dead outnumber the living. While this does attempt a variety of action and horror scenes, they’re so badly constructed it’s often hard to tell what the overall point is. Whitney Moore is easy on the eyes, but the rest of this is rather repugnant.

Peelers

★★½☆ – (2016) – Strip club patrons infected by a black ooze make serious trouble for strippers and their companions. Though nothing entirely unique occurs, this does provide ample nudity, ample violence, and ample fun. Colorful characters and some genuine humor render this an imperfectly good time.
