“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Zombie! vs Mardi Gras (1999)
How bad is it? It looks like it took a whole weekend to shoot. Should you see it? Yes. It's so weird it kinda works.
A zombie is brought back to life during the Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans. He gets stalked by, among others, a fat ninja and Galileo (yes, the astronomer). There are Elvis impersonators and a lot of breasts - even for Mardi Gras. A guy on a date has to excuse himself due to farting and the camera follows him to the men's room, where you wonder just when they're going to stop shooting (they don't - it's actually funny). The best scene involves a random attack by a koala that has nothing to do with anything.
