    I voted for ZOMBIE LAKE too! When you can see the depth markers in the pool.. um I mean "Lake", you know this is a bad movie!

  3. I went with Demented. Wow! I actually enjoyed Zombie Lake. I also liked Cannibal Apocalypse, The Prey, and Erotic Nights.

    I loved the nazi zombie knife fight as much as the next guy, but the movie is just so boring. Nudity is great, but man is the rest of the flick boring.

    Green zombies have always been cool with me, so it gets points for that.

    Nothing can even come close to be as horrible as Zombie Lake. But the first few minutes are pretty good.
     
  6. I don't know... I kind of found the scenes to be very surreal. It was like a very weird dream, but at least to me entertaining. I just kind of rode with it and it worked for me for some odd reason. Not saying it's great(or even good), but cheesy fun? YES!

    I can't vote. I've seen some of the movies on the list but don't remember anything about them. They must've been pretty bad for me to forget them so completely but it means I can't say which of them is the worst.

    I tell ya though, I loved Zombie Lake for the same reasons that alot of you guys hated it. One of the most inept movies ever made, but also one of the funniest. Slow motion zombie knife fights, obvious pool liner in the middle of a "lake" (which looks more like a pond anyway), loads of nudity, a moving father-zombie/daughter storyline, bad make up, I could go on and on. Terrible movie but in the best possible way.

    I am proud to say I have not seen one film on this list.

    I'm right there with you... although I have to say I *am* curious about Zombie Lake now...

    I've seen only two of them, which I kind of liked. So I just couldn't vote.

    I own Cannibal Apocalypse on DVD, and I enjoyed it, The Island was not too bad, but it has been years since I have seen it, but I voted for Zombie Lake. What a load of crap. Hey, why don't we kill someone supposedly in the lake, but actually shoot several scenes of a supposedly lake in an actual swimming pool, but not cover up the Exit Sign, or the depth of the deep end of the pool. Zombie Lake should not even be classified as a Zombie film, it was just plain bad.

    Haven't seen them all, but ZOMBIE LAKE is just so mind-numbingly dull that it has to get my vote.

    I'm surprised by the inclusion of DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE. I always thought it was a sleazy classic.

    I'm surprised more people DIDN'T vote for that crapfest Don't Answer the Phone! I just got the uncut DVD for Father's Day -- it sucked, mmkay?!

    [​IMG]


    Does anybody who has seen it remember: "Dr. Gale... the drugs are more important than you! Mom, Dad... the drugs are more important than you!" or the upbeat police-working-hard-in-the-office montage? I wanted to run screaming!

    I loves me some Zombie Lake on the other hand. It was horrible... but the song while the girls play nude volleyball in the water was classic. I loved that line: "That's not fair! You have panties on!"

    Truer words were never spoken. Sigh.

    I'm saying Zombie Lake even though I love it! Explain to me how a soldier has a child, dies in WW2, and in the late seventies she's maybe fourteen. Then, has anyone heard the story about how their one camera that they were using (and only one!!) went on the fritz and everyone had to act in slow motion because the film was going too fast in the camera.
