| Well worth the price of a rental.
I tend to rent a lot of direct to video movies. I know I shouldn't, because most of these films are garbage, and renting them only puts money into the pockets of greedy hacks, but every once in a while you find a gem like Zombies Anonymous.

YES: The lighting sucks.

YES: Thespecial effects are lame.

YES: The videography is mediocre and the editing a rough in spots, but you know what? The writing is really good.

I was able to overlook all of the low budget flaws because there is actually an interesting story to be had in ZA. I won't go into it here because I want you to RENT THIS MOVIE! I almost didn't, it was stuck all the way down in the Z section and the cover art was horrible, but I took the plunge at brought it home. I am glad I did.

The only real drawback to this movie is that the two major action set pieces go on FOREVER, and only highlight the low budget. These are both in the final third of the video and they drag down the momentum. There also seems to be a scene missing toward the end, because I was lost for half a scene before I realized "oh that's who that is, and that's what's going on.". With all these technical problems I still give this movie a 9 out of 10. If more no budget film makers made movies like this (smart, funny, and entertaining) then maybe Hollywood would take notice and start making good movies as well. Not because it's a trend but because it's a matter of life and death.

Alternate Versions

A 108 minute cut that played in film festivals and theaters in 2007 differs from the 91 minute cut released on DVD by WellGo USA. The original 108 minute version featured the following scenes, not seen on the DVD:

  • Angela opens her eyes and screams, after being shot "dead" by Josh in the opening scene.
  • One of the ZA group members is beheaded by the Commandant outside the truck, shortly after they raid the Zombies Anonymous meeting.
  • Graphic decapitations of most of the zombies anonymous members in the woods are shown, including shots where their moving heads are placed on stakes.
  • In an extended sequence, Angela is held captive by the Good Mother Solstice and her cult after they save her from the massacre in the woods. Although she appears willing at first, Angela realizes that they are terrorists, and have been responsible for numerous terrorist attacks. In an attempt to brainwash her into joining them, they tie her up and inject her with a concentrated form of human blood and gristle, inserted into her brain with a hypodermic needle. Solstice explains that injecting entrails into the brain can lead to an intense high for zombies, but can also cause a messy overdose, which is later seen at the film's end.
  • After the slaughter in the woods, Commandant cuts off her hair with a hunting knife and dies it blonde, in an attempt to change her appearance.
  • Josh, after realizing he has been shot in the woods, and is now one of the undead, has a nervous breakdown. The Commandant shows up in the middle of his breakdown and kicks him in the head.
  • The Commandant strips down to her underwear at Josh's house, and prepares to 'zombify' herself by via gunshot to the head. Malcolm shows up in the middle, only to be killed by Josh with a shotgun blast to the head. Commandant ultimately shoots herself, becoming a zombie. The Good Mother Solstice and her cult show up minutes later. Not recognizing her from the woods, because of her altered appearance, they take her to their house. Josh, watching close by, follows them.
  • Angela, tied down to the floor, escapes by scraping the rope against a rusty nail sticking out of a beam. Before she can escape the house, the Good Mother Solstice and her cult return with the now-dead commandant.
