Shadow Dead Riot (2006)
Shadow Dead Riot offers up all of the nudity and lesbian scenes that is necessary for a women in prison movie. With shower scenes and cat-fights. We even get the wicked lesbo guard named Elsa Throrne... Anybody see a Ilsa She Wolf Of The S.S. and Dyanne Thorne homage there? Well Elsa looks alright in her lesbian shower scenes but she is a damn awful actress.
Shadow also offers up a scene where a zombie is impaled on a stake in a scene that must have been influenced by Cannibal Holocaust. Some crazy flying kung fu action, lots of fucking gore, a graphic child birth (complete with baby abduction by zombies), a pervy doctor, multiple head explosions, full body explosions, dead cops, and zombie baby that is reminiscent of the baby in Combat Shock. This baby has a serious appetite for junkies faces. If this little guy and the zombie baby from Dead Alive got together, I don't think any force in the world could stop them.
There are a couple of flaws in the movie. The first being that its got to much shitty c.g.i. in it and the second being that its shot on video. Other then that Shadow Dead Riot is a modern kick back to the good ole exploitation days and genre clashing is not a problem here. Its pure madness and a shitload of fun at the same time.
