“A Zombie Exorcism” or “Opstandelsen” (which I think is a much better and less campy title, no?) was a blast of a zombie film. It doesn’t quite break new ground but it’s got a lot of spirit that is usually found in low-budget film. With gore aplenty and a lean runtime, I could not ask for more.
The idea was good…
This is the second Danish zombie movie that I have watched, and I can’t claim that either were overly impressive. I happened to come across “Opstandelsen” (aka “A Zombie Exorcism”), which is Danish for “The Rising”, by sheer random luck, and being a zombie aficionado of course I just had to buy it.
I will say that the idea, despite its simplicity, was actually adequate. And as the director Casper Haugegaard said in the extras, that there is just something about having zombies in a church. Good concept idea, but the movie as a whole wasn’t memorable.
The dialogue was almost not present, and what was there didn’t really help to improve the movie much in any manner.
Now, what the movie had working for it was the gore. And while some of it wasn’t great, gore is always good to have in a zombie movie. And there were also some gore parts which were really great.
The movie doesn’t follow traditional zombie lore, as the zombies in the movie apparently could die by being stabbed through the Heart and the zombies were also fast, agile runners. Whether or not you like that is, of course, a matter of preference. I didn’t though. No, I prefer the typical zombie lore; that zombies are slow shamblers that require brain trauma to be effectively put down.
The movie had moments of really questionable camera-work when the people (and zombies) were running in the basement passages underneath the church.
In overall, then “Opstandelsen” was a good-hearted attempt at a zombie movie that was ultimately a less than mediocre result.
