Per Ed Sutton; “In 1957, a zoologist traps a rare Sumatran rat-monkey on Skull Island and brings it back to New Zealand with the locals hot on his trail. Later, a young man falls in love and takes the young woman to the zoo. His overbearing and disapproving mother follows them and gets bitten by the rat-monkey. The monkey’s bite turns her into a zombie, and her doting son has to keep her and the others she’s bitten tranquilized in the basement while trying to preserve his love life.”
In this early, Peter Jackson horror comedy, we have one of the bloodiest, funniest, movies since the Evil Dead. In particular, the scene with the lawn mower was especially gross and bloody and all the scenes with the zombie baby were hilarious. This is a must see for every zombie fan!
