MST3K Rewatch Week 59 - Zombie Nightmare

"I think I'll just walk down Certain Doom Lane..."

Ohh, this is a fun one.  A batshit insane movie with Adam West in a silly mustache, and about a kid with WAY TOO HUGE muscles who gets killed in a hit and run accident.  But that's okay!  His mom is owed a debt by the local voodoo shaman!  So he comes back as a zombie to get revenge on those what done murdered him.

So yes, it is a really terrible version of The Crow.

And Holy shit, the fight choreography in this movie was terrible.  What were they thinking?

"Bow down to my nipples!"

One of the best things about this movie is the 80s kinda metal soundtrack, with bands like Motorhead, Fist, etc.  The guys have a blast making fun of the overly angry music, and the score gives them a ton of chances to break into random songs that kiiinda sound like it.  A frequent gag they do, but they go all out with Zombie Nightmare.

Adam West is a little bit awesome in this movie.  Nowhere near Family Guy levels, but something about this role just...amuses me, for some reason.  Maybe it's the jokes, maybe it's just plain Adam.  Who knows?

The host segments felt weirdly short, possibly to accomodate the movie, I'd imagine.  But we do get to see Mike dressed up as Robin.  WHICH IS AWESOME.

A mixed bag, but they have a lot to work with.  Silly premise, lots of music cues, a couple stars...classic MST3K that turns out well.  Most of the down stuff is the fault of the movie, not them.
