|Alexis Texas in Bloodlust Zombies|
Bloodlust Zombies is another of those horror films that feature a porn star in the vein of Smash Cut and Evil Breed. Bloodlust Zombies features porn star Alexis Texas as the zombie killing personal assistant Andrea. Unlike Sasha Grey in Smash Cut and to some degree Jenna Jameson in Evil Breed, Alexis has not retired from porn. Bloodlust Zombies thus seems to be more of a side project than a launching pad to a new career.
The story basically revolves around an outbreak at a biological weapons lab. An escaped cat that has been infected with a “rage” type virus infects the workers and the building goes on lockdown. The trapped employees including porn star Alexis Texas must fight the zombies, and each other to survive and escape
Bloodlust Zombies has the lowest budget of the three, or at least that’s the way it looks. However for a movie it is a very clean film. No graininess, blur, shoddy sound or obvious fake props. The people in charge of making this film look good did a good job. Special effects are mostly of the practical variety. CGI, if used was few and far between, so much that a day after watching it, I can’t recall any obvious computer effects. The practical effects aren’t that awesome, but the effects crew seems to realize their limitations and we don’t have any attempts at those spectacular effects that either look good or like shit. No rotting corpses, decapitations, but mostly just small wounds and blood covered victims and “zombies.”
There aren’t any Oscar worthy acting performances but most of the cast do a decent enough job Of the cast of course Alexis Texas will receive the most attention. She’s mostly in the film for eye candy, which she is effective as. Her acting is kind of scatter shot. At times she seems to really have some acting potential beyond the adult world, at others you really hope someone is directing her to overact.

That’s probably the biggest problem with Bloodlust Zombies, inconsistency. It doesn’t seem to know if it wants to make fun of itself or be a serious film. There are some great funny scenes, and then there are some absolutely horrible preachy scenes. For the most part it seems to be not taking it self seriously, to know it’s just a cheap vehicle for Alexis Texas, a dollar rental if you will. That’s usually a good thing, but honestly it’s getting a bit overplayed, especially when so many low budget film makers are managing to pull off a serious film of decent quality.

Fans are beginning to expect more, regardless of the budget. Even tongue in cheek, we are expecting quality. Compare this to Smash Cut, which purposely made a bad film as homage to H.G. Lewis. There’s no homage here, just a cheap film with a few laughs and some nudity.

So Bloodlust Zombies isn’t a movie to avoid, but it’s not a movie to rush out and grab either. Zombie completest and fans of Alexis Texas might find it a must have, but these are closer to the Resident Evil infected than Romero and you can see much more of Alexis on a Google search than in the film. Still she has a couple of very nice topless scenes, and if you want to check her out without going to the bad side of the internet this is a good chance. Everyone else put it in your Netflix queue for a slow night.
