‘Zero trans fats has never been so deadly!’
Attack of the Vegan Zombies! is a 2010 American horror film written, directed by and co-starring Jim Townsend. The film also stars Christine Egan, H. Lynn Smith and Kerry Kearns.
Joe (Jim Townsend) and his wife Dionne (Christine Egan) have had yet another bad crop for their winery. Faced with the prospect of losing the family farm, Dionne convinces her mother (a witch) to cast a spell upon next year’s crop.
The crop is such a success that Joe hires some college students to help them harvest. However, when a nosy neighbor begins poking around in the fields, he finds out more than he bargained for. Now the question isn’t how to best harvest the crop, it’s how to keep from being harvested!…
“Since there wasn’t a lot of zombie action we were kind of stuck watching our cast talk about zombies and killer plants which wasn’t terrible because the actors and the script were competent, but if I’m watching a movie with the word ‘zombie’ in the title then I want to see zombies eating people. Or rather extracting the wine from the blood of those who drank the wine which seems terribly inefficient.” Film Critics United
“On a technical level, this film stands heads-and-shoulders above the vast majority of is low-budget, direct-to-DVD kin. But as much as I want to like it, the weaknesses present here are so strong that they really get in the way of my overall enjoyment of the film.” Terror Titans
“Townsend’s disastrous decision to shoehorn a couple of stereotypical nerds into the narrative, as the eye-rollingly hackneyed nature of the characters […] casts a pall of amateurishness over Attack of the Vegan Zombies! that it can’t quite recover from. The end result is nevertheless a better-than-average micro-budget horror flick…” David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
“The Evil Dead styled plants are classic, the lesbian scene is sadly not long enough, and most importantly there is a scene with what reminds me of a meat grinder […] A fun film that could have used a bit more production money to really polish it up to be a great B-Movie.” Stuart Conover, Buy Zombie
