The second movie watched on Tuesday was Calamity of a Zombie Girl and from the jump, I had some high expectations for the movie. But what was supposed to be a movie that featured some good horror didn’t really disappoint, despite the horrible and sometimes bad transitions as well as an obvious blooper in animation early in the movie, it was a fun little ride.
Horror is a genre you can’t take too lightly but it was obvious there was an attempt at comedy that didn’t match up well and at all the wrong times too. There is also a lot of issues with the movie swapping over to what appeared like incomplete storylines throughout the beginning.
Once you get through the beginning, strap yourself in because the movie goes left fast. Now I’m not saying that it wasn’t good, and I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t but the direction of the movie was far unlike what I expected. Watching through once wasn’t even enough to take in what the movie had in the gore and storyline department.
For once, this was a movie that wasn’t about a school girl running around lopping off heads during school time, it was a true to term horror movie.
From the first death to the last it was as close to perfect as you could get from a gore viewpoint. Expect there to be quite a few low points and a number of those “what are you doing” moments because there were a lot of those throughout the movie.
I won’t lie, one point of the movie feels like it should have ended right there and not drag on but that’s not the case as some moments really dialed in the “please end it now” feeling. I must warn you now that fan service seemed to also be on the writer’s mind because it was prevalent throughout the second half of the movie.
In the end, there was a situation where the movie ends and the viewer may be upset with the outcome of the movie, I was because it ended rather badly but still managed to feature the gore that one would expect at the end of the show.
For the gore, I’d rate the movie an 8/10 but due to the ending, I’ve rated the movie down to a 6/10.
