Sex, violence, and horror combine in a ridiculously entertaining novella of lesbians and zombies, which kicks off Lethe’s new Brazenhead imprint. Devin’s a wage slave for a furniture outlet store in an small Ohio town until her daily routine is thoroughly disrupted by an outbreak of zombies. As the dead shamble and bite their way through the town, Devin fights for her life while trying to reach her girlfriend, ex-stripper Carmelle. Her unlikely ally is badass B-movie actress Renni Ramirez, who just happens to be passing through when all hell breaks loose. What follows is a no-holds-barred action-packed romp, filled with rich descriptions, detailed sensory input, sexy flirting, and zombie fighting in the best cult tradition. Ingram has a keen ear for dialogue and believable characters, and this punchy, raunchy story would make a great grindhouse film. (Dec.)
