Because a bunch of hippie marihuana farmers have chosen some uninhabited strip of land as location for their marihuana plantation and the gouvernment doesn't like that much, agent Briggs (Paul Haskin) decides to take a shortcut and have the area sprayed with some untested toxine - with the result that not only the marihuana plants are killed but also the hippies ... but they return as flesh-eating zombies. When Briggs learns about this, he and his sidekick Phillips (John Amplas) mage a trip to the region to contain the situation ... which mainly means killing all witnesses.

Meanwhile, benign gouvernment agent Tom (Charles Austin) takes his wife (Beverly Shapiro) and brother (Phillip Garfinkel) to roughly the same spot of land for a fishing trip - which is first turned sour when they pick up two kids (Kevin Hanlon, Judith Brown) whose parents were killed by the hippie zombies. Soon enough, they find themselves on the run from the zombies, and when they bump into Briggs and Phillips, that really worsens the situation - which is only improved when the evil gouvernment agents and the hippie zombies start to kill one another off ... but unfortunately, they take out everyone but Tom and the little girl (Judith Brown) in the process.


Pot-growing hippie zombies - now that sounds like a fun idea, really! Unfortunately, the film based on that idea isn't half as original as it deserves to be, just a low budget thriller that lacks each and any ambition to be any more than a rather clumsy collection of your typical chase and zombie attack scenes, brought to screen with as little creativity as possible. And that the characters are all one-dimensional at best and the narrative build-up is off doesn't help one bit, either.

In all, a disappointment, even for bad movie lovers.
