An alien spaceship lands on earth, and sends out a legion of zombies with machetes to slaughter us earthlings. Only those worthy are spared and abducted - or those trying to find a way to fight the zombies ... which of course doesn't make all that much sense.

Enter Malvira (Tura Satana), who thinks the zombies are the making of her old foe, Dr De Marco (see the first Astro Zombies), whose head is kept alive by his former assistant Dr Mikacevich (Ted V.Mikels) - so she kills them both to get her hands on the Astro-Zombie-formula ... and when she finds out they didn't have it either, that doesn't slow her down one bit, she starts trying to sell the formula to evil foreign powers anyways, and plans to try to obtain the formula en route. To that end, she abducts Cindy (Brinke Stevens), a journalist reporting on the Astro-Zombies, and her FBI-agent boyfriend Jeff (Sean Morelli), who's working on the Astro-Zombie-case, and when she finds out they don't have the formula either (and why would they), she plans to kill them in one of her little Astro-Zombie presentations, with her assistant Zokar (Scott Blacksher) playing the role of the zombie - but Jeff and Cindy's friend Mac, another FBI-agent, saves them just in time, shoots Zokar, and Zokar falls into Malvira, slashing her with his machete in the process.

But what about the real Astro-Zombies ?

Good question. Apparently, some alien police force stops by earth to hunt down the alien invaders, kills them, and with the invaders dead, the Astro-Zombies just disintegrate.

 

The original Astro Zombies from 1968 was a trash masterpiece, a film so cheap, silly and over-the-top one can't help but loving it. Mark of the Astro-Zombies, the long-awaited (?) sequel made 34 years later, is unfortunately less so. Sure, it's stillcheap and silly, but somehow, the enthusiasm of the original film has gone missing, replaced by a rather impersonal shot-on-video-style, the script is so crammed with subplots it repeatedly loses direction, and the aliens look too intentionally camp to really work in the context of the film.

That all said, Mark of the Astro-Zombies isn't an all bad film, writer/director Mikels at least seems to be aware of the film's camp value, at least in part the film is played tongue-in-cheek, and the scenes with the Astro-Zombies running through the streets slashing people with machetes have instant cult value.
