The Bloody Zombie Western: A Zany High-Powered Puppet Zombie Western

The Bloody Zombie Western: A Zany High-Powered Puppet Zombie Western

Zombie Western is an amazing stop-motion puppet zombie Western short film directed by the Danish filmmaker Tor Fruergaard.  The story line is fairly simple.  In an old-timey little saloon in the middle of nowhere, a young boy is picked on by the cowboys, even by his own father, for being weak and useless.  But when the first customer of the day ambles strangely into the saloon, the boy thinks that maybe this will be his chance to shine.

With the puppets in place at the saloon, what you end up getting when the Zombies attack is a load more gore and violence than you probably would see in a real live action film.  There are swinging cleavers, belts loaded with dynamite and a steam-powered chainsaw that is both ridiculous and inspired.  As the film hurtles toward its gruesome climax, it becomes a kind of insane Howdy Doody meets up with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Freddy Krueger.  This turns out to be one of the funniest short horror films you’ll ever see.
