Bath Salt Zombies might be one of my newest, favorite movies. It has the most absolutely perfect balance of comedy and faces being torn THE FUCK off. It’s a completely different type of zombie movie, because only when you’re tripping balls do you actually become a zombie. Smoke some bath salts, eat someones face. Wake up, smoke some bath salts, chow down on someones intenstines. Wash, rinse, repeat motherfuckers… Round of applause for the lamest line I’ve ever written.

The movie opens with a hilariously animated explanation of what bath salts chemically are, how they work, and what happens when you’re high as a kite one them. The movie basically follows around a crusty punk all through his addiction to bath salts. I know, totally lame and not really possible, but that’s the fucking point! You have this DEA officer chasing after the source of these bath salts, and whenever he comes around a straight up action movie style fight sequence breaks out. As I was watching, I hated this pig but then towards the end I guess I started to feel sorry for him, since he is on the side of good, justice, and doughnuts (not to mention he’s pretty fucking hilarious). During this movie you’re going to laugh then watch someone get ripped apart, all while listening to sweet, sweet, glorious music. And it’s going to keep happening throughout the entire movie, and you’re going to be pissed when it’s all over. This is the first movie in a long time where I can say I appreciated the different, not exactly typical, camera angles and filters used because it just added to the hysteria.

I have no other words except: go get the effin’ movie! If you love comedy, blood, and guts, with loving, tender touches of insanity than you won’t be disappointed. I don’t usually do this and I’m sorry to commit to this so quickly but… I love you Bath Salt Zombies.

Review by Siobhan

After finally getting power back I e-mailed my buddies at Erebus Horror to send me something ASAP to review and jumped for a trilogy of short films by Jeremiah Kipp. Now, if you don’t know who Jeremiah Kipp is here is a little caption from my inbox of some of his work:

“Jeremiah Kipp’s directing credits include THE SADIST starring Tom Savini, THE POD starring Larry Fessenden, CONTACT (commissioned by Sinister Six annual screening series), THE DAYS GOD SLEPT, CRESTFALLEN, THE CHRISTMAS PARTY (Cannes and Clermont-Ferrand), EASY PREY (commissioned by NYC’s annual VisionFest), DROOL (commissioned by Mandragoras Art Space), SNAPSHOT and THE APARTMENT (commissioned by Canon to premiere their XL2 at DV Expo 2004). Producing credits include the feature films SATAN HATES YOU (created by Glass Eye Pix, starring Angus Scrimm, Michael Berryman and Reggie Bannister), GOD’S LAND, LET’S PLAY, IN MONTAUK, THE JONESTOWN DEFENSE and THE BED-THING (directed by Pulitzer Prize-nominated Matt Zoller Seitz). Assistant director credits include I SELL THE DEAD starring Dominic Monaghan, SOMEWHERE TONIGHT starring John Turturro, ONE NIGHT starring Melissa Leo, and the Sundance Award- winning MAN (dir: Myna Joseph).”

Now, down to fuckin’ business, I received 3 links to 3 short films: Crestfallen, Contact, and Drool. I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited to see what was in store for me. Crestfallen and Drool were okay but Contact I felt he could have gone further.

Contact was basically about a girl who freaks out from drugs with her boyfriend, and then reunites with her parents in the end all clean and pretty. I felt that the “junkies”, and especially the drug dealer, were lame. There was a stereotypical guy in a leather jacket who looked like a jerk off (I’m allowed to say that because my boyfriend has that jacket with a huge Ramones patch on the back and he manages to not look like a fool in it), and some kid with his eyes closed looking stupid, who should have been left out of the shot completely, or should have been on the floor pretending to sleep. The drug dealer was a unique character who I appreciated, but not as an actual drug dealer. I’ve never met a drug dealer who wore eye liner and had a penis (I’m assuming that guy was a guy, I could be really fucking off on that one). You don’t know what kind of drug they’re doing, but they’re freebasing it completely naked. With any drug trip there were highs and lows, and I was left wishing the low went way fucking low, like down to the core of the earth low. But all in all I felt like it was shot well and the setting/backdrop for each scene was done well. I really liked the way it went back and forth from the parents waiting at the dinner table and back to their daughter getting fucked up.

Crestfallen was a series of flash backs in the mind of a girl who just slit her wrists in a bathtub (more boobies fellas). I thought it was a really cool concept and there was an aerial shot from above the bathtub tinting the water with her blood — it looked totally disturbing and dark, I loved it.

Drool was an experimental film where you’re left not sure what the fuck went on. It’s just a naked man and woman in a room covered in what I’m assuming is supposed to be drool, but all I kept thinking was it was definitely some kind of lube, so I kept picturing a scene from the movie Old School (“We can only get KY in the 24 oz tubes, industrial size can take up to 3-4 weeks”). The whole time you’re not sure if they’re fuckin’ or fightin’ and it’s weird, but something about it I liked and wanted to see more — how did they get there? what’s happening? where did he go? I kind of liked it, in a weird way and wouldn’t mind seeing it turned into a totally over the top gory, horror flick filled with insanity.

As you can see, not all horror is monsters and cannibals, it can be taken any way. Check out some of Jeremiah Kipp’s work for yourself, I’d love to see what all the other horror fanatics think of his work, so leave a comment below or on my blog. Who knows, he can be the next big thing and you’ll get to tell all your hipster friends you saw him way back when all because of some girl — that girl — Siobhan.
