Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker

Low Budget Pictures Bombs Out
Posted Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Title: Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker

Year: 2000

Genre: Horror/Comedy

Format Reviewed: Netflix Streaming

Another one from the crew over at Low Budget Pictures, Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker was tagged as follows:

"Mr. Bonejack. Mulva. Lady McPouchsweat. These are the characters that inhabit the twisted mind of writer/director Chris Seaver. MULVA: ZOMBIE ASS KICKER! follows the misadventures of a chocolate-addicted young girl celebrating Halloween with a bizarre assortment of characters including the aforementioned Bonejack — a cross between Bill Cosby and Don King who saves the day by helping kick some zombie Taint When Tromaville becomes over run by the living dead.

FULL of cheap gore, Twisted Vulgar comedy and Cameos from Tromas own Lloyd Kaufman, Trent Haaga and Debbie Rochon. This flick has become a campy-cult-classic that is sure to make you bleed on your blood with Joy! "


Pretty much says it all, as far as I can tell, except for one small detail they forgot to mention about this film written and directed by Chris Seaver: It Sucks. A lot. Now, now, before everyone gets all butt hurt and indignant, I do usually like the zero budget craptacular films served up on a regular basis by Chris and the crew of Low Budget Pictures. I generally enjoy the vulgar humor and ridiculous violence, in conjunction with the flat out bottom of the barrel nature of the production. It has charm, generally speaking, and works as horror, comedy and parody all rolled into one.


Unfortunately, in the case of Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker, the system has failed and I know why. The main character, Mulva, is just fucking annoying. Period. Not in a good way, either. The is absolutely nothing about the character that makes one want to even put in the short forty-five minutes or so that the film requires. From the moment I realized that she was the character the film was going to focus on, and not just the first victim, it was all I could do not to turn the thing off.

You’ll find the usual cast of characters, from Teen Ape on, a bit with Debbie Rochon, and the usual level of acting and production that is expected from a Low Budget Pictures’ production, but all that is just destroyed by the terrible lead character. I hated this movie. I hate the Mulva character. I would advise anyone reading this to avoid Mulva: Zombie Ass Kicker like the black fucking plague. Chris Seaver and the crew at Low Budget Pictures are responsible for some of my favorite “No Budget” type films, such as Carnage for the Destroyer, but here it has just not worked out for them at all. This is how it all breaks down:

Gratuitous Nudity: A bit of the T&A.

Graphic Violence: Effects are neither here nor there, but are plentiful.

Story/Plot: The writing wasn’t up to LBP’s usual quality level.

Acting: Not good, but Debbie is a bonus for any film.
