What can you expect from a movie entitled "Hot Wax Zombies on Wheels"? Not an Oscar winning performance, script or directing, that's for sure. This 1999 movie, lasting 90 minutes, has no famous actors/actresses, and most of them that did "star" in this movie, never went out and made a career out of acting. And when you see the movie, you'll understand that acting was not their strength.
The B-movie (more a C-movie) is a combination of comedy, horror and biker type movie. The comedy is not what you would call "C"omedy, but just light entertainment. The acting is way over the top, and the villains have the famous, almost nonstop, villain laugh (aughhhha hhhaaaah haaaaaaa), watch the trailer below, you'll hear...
There are a lot of motorcycles in the movie, but not enough riding. Couple of funny "gotchas"; in one scene two people are riding their off road motorcycles, talking to each other in a normal voice while not only riding loud crossers, but also quite far apart. Since the movie was made in 1999, there weren't any Bluetooth headsets.... In another scene, there's a "chase" scene, and the villain is riding a motorcycle leading a biker gang. When you look closely, you'll notice that her front wheels aren't turning.... you can actually see it in the screen-snap below:
This is a movie that the script writer did not need a reason to have the girls in the movie loose their tops. Any reasons is a good reason to go topless. Lots of silicone in this movie, not exactly a ecology-friendly movie...
Quotes: "I didn't recognize him, he looked like a waxed apple after a bad hair day" "God, I need a man" "Hand me my cigarette, I might as well have something in my mouth" "The whole town is dead, walking dead, zombies, you know, like Republicans" "The wax will set you free" "Thank you for calling 911. We are out of the office right now..." "Since when do you need help getting horny?" "Didn't you hear me? No I have wax in my ears"
Plot: A sleepy fishing village is terrorized by a band of hairless zombies on motorcycles.
Verdict: This movie has a novel idea, that's for sure. But it's so badly done, with over-acting and bad script writing, that the movie becomes watchable. It's like watching two trains barreling towards each other on the same track; you know what's going to happen, but you can't take your eyes on the upcoming wreck. Have a look at the trailer below.
