Movie Review: Automation Transfusion

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469683/

Stayed up late last night to catch this one. 

A little while ago I talked about why I’m tougher on A movies than B movies.  And I’ll give  a pass to B movies that try hard, even if they suck.

Well, here’s an example as to why.  Automation Transfusion cost $30,000 to make.  The director and the producer are young and inexperienced.  The actors are a bunch of high school kids. 

And it still ROCKS. 

Is it perfect?  No.  There are some dumb things, and when they stop to explain the plot, I laughed out loud.  Some of the jerky camera is a touch much. 

But this movie is an example of why B Movies are great.  It’s got soul.  It is a hard core, balls to the wall, blood and guts, zombie flick.  It’s visceral.  It’s gross.  It’s violent.  And it has chainsaws. 

The reviews over on IMDB make fun of the acting.  I don’t know what they’re smoking, but I thought (relatively speaking of course) that these kids did an excellent job.  It isn’t masterpiece theater you dumbasses.  It is people getting eaten by zombies.  How much ‘emoting’ do you want.

The plot?  Well, people get eaten by zombies.  That’s pretty much it.  Don’t overthink it. 

Overall, fellow B movie nerds, catch this flick.

  1. I had the opportunity to watch this movie, and feel that this move was not bad. As stated above this was a wild concept with young actors. So when I picked this movie up I was not really expecting a movie with GREAT production value, but over all the movie not bad. My main concerns or complaints are that this film just ends with TO BE CONTINUED… Ok I understand that movie trilogies is what we are hoping for but this hopeful will not hapen with this one. After being burned with this one I’m gonna be a bit more picky about my B rentals. I generally go to stores that have the largest amount of B movies, and must say that many cult classics have started as a B movies. Blair Witch, Nightmare On Elm St (original) , Terminator. I’m just gonna lay back dont want to say “Dont Rent” just understand that this is a real problem with this.

  2. This movie was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo retarded!! You knew what was coming and you were never even scared. You people probably put more money on the cover of the dvd case than actually filming it and making the story line! I hate the fact that at the end of the movie the two people were getting chased by zombies and then they fricken stop the movie and say to be continued!! How retarded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I emphasize retarded!!!!!!!!!! I am telling everyone to not go and rent this movie or buy it! It was a waste of 5 bucks at the BLOCKBUSTER!!! It was retarded and I guess if your retarded you might buy it! The only reason we got the movie was because the cover looked sweet! SO YEAH IT WAS RETARDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am angry!!

  3. that has to be one of the worst zombie movies ever,especially the ending. like someone would actually care what happens….i was just glad it was over. most zombie movies are a let down anyway…im waiting for world war z to be made.

  4. Why on earth would anyone watch a Zombie movie and be looking for a plot? You are all out of your minds. This was classic!(except for the ‘to be cont.) Agood zombie movie is all about the gore, and this one had it in spades!! So if your looking fo a plot or depth or something, go watch “Brokeback Mountain” or maybe Titanic! Leave our gore flicks alone!!!!!!

  5. Ok first of all this movie was actually good. I mean the acting wasnt fantastic or anything but i liekd it. Id probably give this movie a C+ or B. It was a good plot but i wasnt expecting it to be made with bad quality. But overall i kinda liked this movie.
