Has a movie ever straddled the line between being a 1 star and a 5 star movie before? It's insanely quotable and every scene was an integral memory of my childhood. That being said the entire schtick of his character and the concept of this movie is the most asinine shit I've ever seen.
Sometimes I wonder why I watch so many shit horror movies, and I've realized its because they make me appreciate the good ones so much more. This movie is fucking PERFECT. It's a perfect zombie movie, its self aware its has a great origin story and it manages to have interesting characters across the board. Clu Gulager acts his damn ass off, every emotion he conveys like he's going to win an Oscar. Top it off with a great ending, Linnea Quigley showing off her goods and a punk rock soundtrack and you have a masterpiece. One of the most fun movies in the genre.
