P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! follows a paranormal clean-up crew--the bureau of Post Mortem Animation Control (P.M.A.C.), headed by one Officer Frank Hadely (Frank Rydberg)--as they chase down and dispose of the corporally-challenged. This outrageous, award-winning independent short is a brilliant spoof of reality television, from special effects/make-up wizards Matt Rose and Chad Waters.
What They're Saying About P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!!
"More than a skillful satire of the reality-TV format, this is a bizarro world COPS, as if your cable service suddenly tapped into hell. P.M.A.C.: When Zombies Attack!! is a true event! Two-fisted entertainment for gore-hounds with an evil sense of humor." -- Guillermo del Toro, Director Hellboy
"WZA surpasses being skillful parody. It taps into the zombie zeitgeist of Romero and becomes legitimate horror in its own right. It's a surprising, inventive and muscular blend of genres that leaves the horror fan amused, appalled and wanting more." -- Frank Darabont, Director The Green Mile
"When Zombies Attack!! is the bastard spawn of bad reality television and every kick-ass zombie film ever made. George Romero would be proud. It's funny, clever and top-notch gross-out entertainment." -- Capone, Ain't It Cool News
"Just an all around, fun viewing experience with great make-up, a great tongue-in-cheek wit, and superb straight acting." -- Mark Wheaton, CHUD
"A really funny satire of zombie flicks and reality TV." -- Anthony Timpone, Fangoria
"One of the most original (and successful) parodies the genre has seen in quite some time." -- Nathan Tyler, Rue Morgue
"Awesome! In the ideal world this would be on TV with a 24 hour rotation. Zombie-tastic mate!" -- Calum Wadell, Shivers Magazine
