Redneck Zombies is a 1987 American horror comedy trash film directed by Pericles Lewnes and released by Troma Entertainment.

Production[edit]

The movie is notable for being one of the first films shot entirely on videotape and then released to the home-video market (making it a straight-to-video film). The title of the film was once used as an answer to a question in a 1980s edition of Trivial Pursuit, the question being "What film has the tagline 'They're Tobacco Chewin', Gut Chompin', Cannibal Kinfolk from Hell!'". Director Pericles Lewnes went on to work as a special effects supervisor on several other Troma productions, including The Toxic Avenger Part II, The Toxic Avenger Part III, and Troma's War, as well as Shatter Dead.

Release[edit]

The film was released on VHS and DVD by Troma Entertainment. A new 20th anniversary edition of the film was released on DVD January 27, 2009. It includes the never before released soundtrack on CD.[1]
