I’ve had this one in my collection for at least a year now. Being a lover of zombie movies, I’m surprised it lasted that long without a single viewing. Also, being a strong supporter of low-budget, independent films, I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Although it’s very far off from 28 Days Later, Zombi 2, or Dawn of the Dead, it still delivers the gore, if not much else. Automaton Transfusion uses the setting of a typical high school and involves a group of cliched teenagers (clearly played by late 20-somethings). Three friends get out of school and head to a neighboring town to go see a show of some crappy band. Actually, most of the music in the movie is rather annoying, but it was a pleasant surprise when they played a track of of the first Escape the Fate EP. They’re new stuff isn’t all that great, but I’m getting off track. Anyway, they get to the venue only to be chased into the building by a swarm of zombies. After contemplating their situation, they head back to their hometown to a party in order to rescue some of their other friends / girlfriends. The script, acting, and plot seriously lacked but it had some very nice gore bits thrown into the mix as well. With quite a short length, I felt as though there were far worse ways I could’ve spent the time. (2 / 5)
