Ok, so there's this reporter guy, Randall (Robert Deveau) who, when not watching Three Stooges movies (I'm serious here) is chased by zombies who are on his trail because he ... well, he found out something or other. Randall is helped by Shelly (Donna Asali), a local ex-cop who also finds the Stooges funny, but before she can really help him she is abducted by the zombies - rather surprisingly because usually the zombies just kill their victims.

Fortunately though, then Randall stumbles upon Dr Corstairs (Robert Allen), whose teen grandson who lives with him just has build himself a lasergun out of a laser disc player and a VCR, and after Randall has found out that the zombies might have something to do with an abandoned local prison he, Doc Corstairs, Jonathan and Jonathan's girlfriend Michelle (Corri Burt) all go there to kick some zombie ass, either with laserguns or with conventional bow and arrow, and after they have killed all the zombies they find out that local coroner Doc Kopek (Leonard Corman) was the driving force behind the zombie plague, and they make a citizen's arrest on the spot ...

 

I have to admit, Raiders of the Living Dead is a great title suggesting a great if silly zombie romp, and I also admit that I have always been a sucker for cheap and cheesy zombie fare ... but this film was a slap in the face, one of the most boring zombie films I have ever seen: The film totally lacks suspense, tension, atmosphere and horror, it's shot in a totally impersonal and uninventive matter-of-fact style, the actors are at best mediocre (but probably not even) ... and its screenplay sucks as well. And why Sam Sherman (a veteran schlock producer whose only film as a director this was) thought it a good idea to use Three Stooges-material to add extra-value to a zombie flick is just beyond me.

Now don't get me wrong, this one isn't even unintentionally funny, it's just a waste of time !
