HOOD OF THE LIVING DEAD (2005) **

The blaxploitation horror craze of the 70’s gave us African American themed twists on Dracula, Frankenstein and even Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Since they didn’t get around to doing a black themed zombie movie 30 years ago, I guess a gangsta themed zombie movie wasn’t a bad idea. Too bad it’s just another mindless shot on video zombie movie with sub par effects. After a black scientist’s kid brother is murdered in a drive by shooting, he resurrects him using a top secret regenerative formula. Predictably it turns him into a zombie that bites other people which also turns them into zombies. Since the formula gets pumped through the blood stream, zombies must be shot through the heart instead of the head. The amateur acting is good enough to make this more effective as a slice of hood life than a zombie flick. There’s also a merc who shows up named Romero.
