I grew up in a small farm town in Indiana. For those of you who don’t know, Indiana is a Midwestern state with a lot of cornfields and rednecks. Oh – and Larry Bird has a car dealership there somewhere too. So naturally since I’m from an area that’s known to have redneck or two, a young boy who loved horror movies like me would obviously gravitate towards a movie called Redneck Zombies at my local video store, right?
“They’re Tobacco Chewin’, Gut Chompin’, Cannibal Kinfolk From Hell!” With a tagline like that, how the hell did I never rent this?!? Not only that, but this rare gift was given to us by none other than Troma Entertainment. Now, I very much enjoyed The Toxic Avenger in 1984, so what made me pass up renting Redneck Zombies back when I was obsessed with renting horror movies? I wish I had a simple answer my friends. I guess I was too busy watching Chopping Mall for the tenth time.
I think it’s finally time though….finally time to raise above the skepticism that I hold and sit down and give Redneck Zombies the viewing it so deserves. I’ll take baby steps first and watch this clip up on Youtube where the word ‘bodacious’ is used to the best of it’s word ability:
