movie cover

In the back-woods of America lives a very special kind of people. When they accidentally drink a barrel of nuclear waste they turn into tobacco chewing, flesh eating, cannibal kinfolk from hell. Meanwhile, seven sophisticated city slickers on vacation get lost in the woods and encounter a nightmare world of these illiterate, and extremely insensitive, undead.

While the tourists hikers use all their wits and courage to stay alive, more and more 'down-home' types imbibe the nasty brew until Redneck Zombies are everywhere. What started as a scenic nature-hike turns into a bloodbath of dismemberment and cannibalism.

Qvamp says:

A completely pointless movie filled with gore, bathroom humor and gratuitous female nudity (in other words, a standard Troma movie).

One of the rednecks acts effeminate and insists that he be called Ellie Mae, and his dad describes him as 'kinda funny.' In spite of this, he is treated surprisingly sympathetically.

However, any non-homophobic intent is completely undone with the introduction of a soldier who encapsulates every single gay stereotype (such as not wanting to fight because he might break a nail and asking a group of zombies if they want to do water-sports).
