Chainsaw Maid

Chainsaw Maid is a creepy, extremely gory, and well-made claymation zombie movie.

Big thanks to Jeff Schultz (Jeffos) for sending me the link.

Claymation gore is the best kind of of gore! Yummy!

For me, the creepiest thing was that nasty fat zombie chasing the girl. Zombies are bad enough, but a pederast-looking zombie? Double plus horrible.

There are so many great little touches here -- the bird chirping at the beginning and the happy maid and girl; the dad scooting away in horror from the table ... then picking up his coffee mug; the little hopeful smile he gives to the first zombie; the maid's bow at the end; the sound effects; on and on.

I was afraid the chainsaw would run out of gas just as the zombies came through the double doors. But then she wouldn't be chainsaw maid, would she? Give that woman a raise and a bonus!

Glad you liked it, Karswell.

Loved the homage to the gut-barfing scene from "City of the Living Dead." Whole thing was awesome!

Karswell said...

Everyone take a tip from Jeffos, if you find something cool like this online let me know about it... especially if it fits in here at THOIA.

Thanks again Schultz!

Awesome animation!!! The first female zombie it's very creepy! A strip with the Twin Peaks theme is funny!

Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for showing us Jeffos and Karswell!

Dang, we almost got some clay nudity.

I laughed and laughed when the mom-zombie landed face first in her guts (wow, I'm a horrible person) but that quickly gave way to horror, real actual horror, when the maid stabbed her in the eye. Yargh! Why is there always an eye thing?

It was awesome, though.

I saw this a few weeks ago, thought it was cool and posted it elsewhere, (possibly where jeffos saw it). There's some other gory stuff by the same guy on youtube.

I AGREE WITH DANE, FACE FIRST INTO A PILE OF GUTS BEATS ALL! THE CHAINSAW MASSACRE AT THE END IS REALLY WELL STAGED. STRANGE LACK OF SOUND THOUGH THROUGHOUT.....

Fred said...

Yeah, I wondered why there were strange stretches of silence where screams or effects were needed. Would have helped it overall to have more sound effects, like during the gut-barfing scene.

that was incredible. I only wish they made real zombie movies this good anymore.

I'm eagerly awaiting a sequel to this!
