Shadow: Dead Riot (2006)

Dude. This crazed B-flick is about a tough black chick, incredibly skilled at hand-to-hand combat, who gets sent to an experimental woman's prison and, while dodging butch bitches and the overzealous staff, becomes instrumental in the resurrection of a former inmate (played by Tony Todd with pointy dental appliances) who was big into voodoo and as such has the power to create zombies. Right there, you've got lesbians, boobies, zombies and kung-fu-fighting, and I haven't even gotten past the basic elements of the plot. There's also a Zombie Baby. There's also a small part for Erin Brown, a.k.a. Misty Mundae (whom I've met -- she was pretty cool). There's also the unexpected sound of Jean Grae playing over the end credits. There's also no less than three scenes in which Tony Todd fucking explodes. By now, you should already know whether or not you want to see this energetic muck monster. I can't say it's transcendent or revelatory or anything like that, but then neither are pizza and beer after a hard day's work, and that doesn't make them any less enjoyable.

Grade: B
