Gay Zombie is like fast food for the horror lover to devour…

There’s really only one thing wrong with Gay Zombie…it leaves you hungry for more. Running only 20 minutes, this gay horror short is funny, light-hearted, gross, campy, romantic, tragic, sexy, and even throws in a fashion show montage! It’s rare that I like horror films that follow the story of a zombie instead of making the undead the monsters, but there are a few horror comedy exceptions, and this is one of them.

The simple story of a zombie who is struggling with the fact that he’s gay, Gay Zombie is perfectly cast with cuties who can act and manage to portray likeable characters in such a short time. And the actor playing the zombie makes even the undead look good in a yellow speedo! The reactions when Gay Zombie hits the bar scene are fricking perfect. The makeup is awesome and the film even takes a dark—and gory—turn.

On top of all that, the punk rock theme song “Gay Zombie” totally rules!!! I wish I could get it on CD.

If you want more of Gay Zombie, it was adapted into a 100 page erotic ebook called Gay Zombie Erotix by Richard Wax. Expanding on the back story of how he became a gay zombie, it also takes you on Gay Zombie’s sexual journey. EEK! Now why didn’t they make THAT into a full-length sexy-sick gay horror film?
