|The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)
Some movies are good, some are bad, and some are Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies, if you can even consider that a movie. I mean the title sums it up just perfectly, this is a film where no one had any idea what they were doing. I.S.C.W.S.L.B.M.U.Z is a film that’s one part monster movie, one part musical, and all parts incredibly discomforting acid trip. This is a film where I imagine they took a few different “ideas” put them in a blender, drank them, vomited them up and then put them back in the blender. The confines of logic do not exist in this nightmarish experience and one can only be left with regret after seeing an abomination like this.
The premise is that of an evil gypsy that hypnotizes and turns people into zombies at some kind of carnival… I think. Interspersed with all of this are long sequences of painfully boring song-and-dance numbers that probably dominate more of the film’s running time then anything else. If the makers of this film set out to disturb and confuse moviegoers than they most definitely succeeded. Hmm, now I’m drawing a blank, suppose I did a good job of erasing this from mind already.
If you must witness this diarrhea nightmare I highly recommend you take the Mystery Science Theater 3000 route it will make it at least mildly tolerable, but whether the running time of this film was 82 minutes or 10 minutes, it would still feel like an eternity.
I’d post a picture or video but they’re all of such poor quality, so why even bother?
