The My Uncle John is a Zombie Trailer is a bit crap and I suspect the movie is a bit crap too. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
John Russo played the legendary Tire Iron Ghoul in Night of the Living Dead. Now in this scary but hilarious new horror comedy, he plays a flesh-hungry zombie who’s been kept hidden — and well fed — by his beautiful niece, Cy-Fi, and his bumbling security guard nephew, Oscar. When he “comes out,” he becomes a worldwide celebrity! But zombie hunters are after him, and it all builds to a fun-filled, flesh-hungry finish!!
Saying it’s a bit crap is rough but it really does look like it was edited by a teenager showing clips of friends pretending to be zombies. It started off well with Cy-Fi telling her zombie uncle John to duck down behind a gravestone, that she won’t let anyone hurt him. And he does so obediently. The rest of the trailer is basically just scenes from the movie that show us that there will be some gore and unexciting zombie makeup. There are also too many random characters introduced and we have no real idea of what kind of story to expect. It’s billed as a comedy but the trailer for My Uncle John is a Zombie didn’t bring the chuckles.
