Zombie Brigade is a 1988 Australian film shot in Toodyay, Western Australia.[1]

Plot[edit]

In a small country town, Mayor Ransom buys up land to develop a theme park. Council officials blast a Vietnam War memorial, unleashing monsters.

Production[edit]

The script was written originally by Barrie Pattison who brought it to Carmelo Musca, who liked the idea of doing a genre piece with some Social commentary. The state funding body Screen West refused to invest in the movie.[2]

Reception[edit]

According to the filmmakers, "the film made back money four or five times over for the investors".[2]
