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:
Being that I ingested my fair share of healthy portions from Troma Entertainment throughout my years, I’m always on the lookout for the next filmmaker or company that will follow in King Kaufman’s footsteps. And I believe I have drunkenly stumbled upon it with James Balsamo and his Acid Bath Productions. Sometimes, I love my horror films with extra cheese, and that’s what I got when I clicked play on Balsamo’s trailer for the upcoming Cool As Hell. Although the boobs are blurred (always a shame when that happens), it’s still somewhat NSFW, so click below with discretion advised:
Any movie that has Tim Ritter in it scores points with me. And it looks like besides the random cameo, we can expect: boobs, blood, zombies, demons, more boobs, and more blood! I’m sold. Look for Cool As Hell to hit stores on February 19th and follow James on Twitter HERE or Facebook HERE and support independent horror!
**EDIT** James Balsamo just emailed me and didn’t want my gore and boob deprived followers to go boob/gore hungry on this Thursday morning. So here’s the red band, definitely NSFW trailer for Cool As Hell:
