    Boni and Ristori deliver the zombie goods

    WWII battle worn soldiers come across a Nazi complex where experiments
    are taking place to resurrect dead prisoners.

    Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead (2015) is dark, gloomy, more
    serious than their 2011 entertaining ride Eaters and more sombre and
    grounded than Zombie Massacre a.k.a Apocalypse Z.

    Again filmmaker talents Luca Boni and Marco Ristori deliver a grim
    competently constructed bleak zombie horror that is stylishly shot with
    some good blood and gore effects presented on a saturated colour
    palette. The practical effects come better off that some of the CGI
    explosions and splatter. The sets and location look outstanding for the
    budget.

    With actors Andrew Harwood Mills, Dan van Husen and Lucy Drive who is
    stunning as Erin the rest of the cast are on form and give performances
    as their picked off one by one that far surpass those in the first
    outing.

    Zombie Massacre 2 is slower and more dramatic than Boni and Ristori’s
    previous work, and while the story isn’t the most original there’s
    plenty of gore, creepy visuals, dead soldiers, vertical white stripes
    zombies, creepy faces and the like.

    Boni and Ristori are becoming somewhat cult directors and need a
    breakout mainstream film but for the moment we have to wait a little
    longer, nevertheless, it’s still agreeable zombie fodder.

    It’s as messy as mashed up zombie brain, and it’s not worth your time to piece it together.

    If you like watching poorly acted soldiers exchanging nonsensical
    banters about war while occasionally shooting Nazi zombies, you might
    last the first act. However, if you want actually plot or coherent
    dialogues, you’ll do better watching bloopers from any other war movie.
    This is as vague as narrative as it can be, even by standard of
    B-movie.

    There’s basically no structure to the story at all. People would tell
    war stories for half of the movie, engage in obscure overly dramatic
    military propaganda and suddenly the shooting starts to happen.
    Characters pop out of nowhere and disappear altogether from the story,
    no one knows what happen to that one guy who was there earlier nor do
    they seem to care.

    Zombie and Nazi are mixed into the narrative, yet the soldiers’
    reactions are inconsistent. It’s as though someone shuffles random
    screenplays and just tosses them together. Acting is wooden, not that
    the material offers anything conclusive. It’s marred with vague
    gibberish and at times dreamy near hallucinogenic scenes. Don’t expect
    any finesse to technical aspect either, cinematography and effect are
    low budget mediocrity.

    A lot of pretentious talk about war without war itself, it will
    painfully bores audience like zombie bites and by now capitalizing on
    zombie fevers feels like an old gimmick.

    Bad taste zombie outing

    Another zero-budget zombie film, from the Italian team who made the
    poor EATERS. The good news is that Reich of the Dead is a lot better
    than that film, although still not particularly good; the problem is
    that the story plays things out very predictably on a tight budget, so
    there’s no room for anything memorable or original. FRANKENSTEIN’S ARMY
    this isn’t!

    Instead, what we get are a couple of characters wandering around some
    gloomy locations and occasionally encountering some zombies that
    shuffle around. The zombie threat is zero as is the horror content,
    although this is definite a bad taste vibe going on in the way the
    zombies are all dressed in concentration camp uniforms – they were
    former prisoners experimented upon by a mad surgeon.

    The one thing Reich of the Dead has going for it is some surprisingly
    decent direction; no shaky-cam work here, just solid cinematography
    which makes the most of the dreary and drab setting. It’s probably the
    best direction I’ve seen in a low budget zombie flick, so it’s a shame
    it was wasted on such a non-starter of a story. Too much of the slender
    running time is padded out with boring conversations on the nature of
    war and B-movie veteran Dan van Husen barely gets a look in.

    Poor script and construction made view-able by acting and direction

    Low-budget movies are often met with a stupid viewer attitude that
    says, constantly, ”I’m better than this movie I’m watching.” I think
    it’s better to ask what one would want from the film and then to see if
    it delivers.

    In this case, like the first ZM film, we have cardboard characters,
    poor pacing/scripting, and an overuse of CG effects. The good news is
    that, like the first film, we also get some good make-up work and
    practical gore (although it’s odd that we only see two or three zombie
    types, the directors having gone to budget-friendly masks and a uniform
    clothing option that doesn’t do the movie any favors).

    But yet the thing’s still watchable, largely due to the fine lead
    performances by Andrew Mills and Aaron Stielstra (Van Husen’s cameo is
    a bit underwhelming, but I think that has more to do with scripting and
    a short production schedule than his work). A lot of the reviews here
    say the acting’s bad, but I’m not sure what they’re seeing. The acting
    amongst the squad is certainly a bit over-the- top, but that doesn’t
    mean it’s bad. It wouldn’t be in place in a film like Under the Skin,
    but for this genre stuff, stylized acting makes sense and gives the
    film what little tone and drive it has. although that’s maybe not being
    fair to the direction and production design which are mostly strong and
    good for a few great shots amidst all the CG splizz-ing of
    uniform-zombie-heads.

    Even more of a massacre than part 1

    Actually not really. But it sounded good. Like the title sort of. But
    then again, we’ve been there, seen that. Something that cannot be said
    about the characters in this, who are oblivious to what is going to
    happen. To distinguish itself, the movie tries to go meta or even
    philosophical if you will at times. There’s a muddled time-line or at
    least a ”flash”, which seems unnecessary, complicating things further,
    getting in the way of any fun this could’ve been.

    Still better than the first one, this hasn’t really put anything in its
    favor acting wise. Effects are decent for a low budget movie or if
    you’re willing to lower your own expectations. But the story will not
    keep you at the edge of your seat, the ending will rather confuse
    (until part 3 will be released? If it’s going to be released that is)
    than enlighten you …

    A mixed bag …

    You would think zombies and Nazis make for a good combo…

    Yes, I am a sucker for all things zombie, and more than often that
    fascination leads me to watch some very questionable movies.
    Questionable even though the DVD cover makes the movie seem a lot more
    interesting than it actually turned out to be. And ”Zombie Massacre 2:
    Reich of the Dead” was no exception.

    This movie was a drag to get through, especially because it was
    unfathomably slow paced. You are more than 30 minutes into the movie
    before the first zombie rears its ugly head. Ugly head indeed.
    Especially because all zombies were outfitted with what could best be
    described as latex masks bought at a local Halloween vendor. But hey,
    points for trying at least. And hand on heart, then a fake latex mask
    still is better than just some poor gray make-up on the face.

    But the movie is slow paced and very little of any interest happens
    throughout the entire movie, and there is not even enough action
    throughout the movie to make up for the lack of speed and progress. And
    a storyline so simple that even an actual dead person can keep up with
    it is insulting to the audience. There are no surprises, no twists, no
    turns, no nothing here to be had. I suffered through the movie so you
    don’t have to.

    The story is about a small group of American soldiers trapped behind
    enemy lines in Nazi Germany during World War II. Trapped and pinned
    down by enemy fire, they seek shelter in an abandoned Nazi compound.
    But some foul and sinister secret broods in the musky old Building.

    Right. Well, the storyline was straight forward, I will say that much.
    But way too simple to be entertaining. And the make-up and special
    effects were just downright bad. Not bad enough to actually be funny
    and entertaining because they are bad. Just plain bad.

    The acting in ”Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead” was adequate for a
    movie such as this. I have seen much worse acting in low budget zombie
    movies because, so at least the movie had that working in its favor.

    And the atmosphere of the movie was also working well in favor of the
    movie, because there was a good sense of the movie actually taking
    place during World War II. And it is always a plus in my book when
    Germans actually do speak German in war movies. So a rotten thumb up
    for that as well. Oh, and also the props and costume department should
    get some credit, because they added some authenticity to the movie as
    well with what they managed to put together.

    However, the overall movie was just a stinker. Pardon the pun. If you
    enjoy zombie movies, then ”Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead” is not
    a good choice for a night’s worth of entertainment, as there are far
    better movies available.
