Storyline

Teenagers Reg, Skip, Julie and Pam go out for an afternoon of water skiing on a nice day. They come ashore on an island that is being used as a testing center for a scientist and agents from "an eastern power." They seek to turn the people of the United States into easily controlled zombie like creatures. The agents steal Reg's boat, stranding the teens on the island. The four friends are then held captive in cages able only to speculate on their fate. Though they have already been testing the formula on convicts and drunks, the enemy scientist and agents plan to conduct final tests on the teens before they use it on the rest of America. Meanwhile, two of their friends, whom the captives had planned to meet later, search for their missing friends. After a series of suspicious encounters, they urge the corrupt sheriff to search the island where their friends are trapped. Written by Jim Cobb <gymcobb@azstarnet.com>

Goofy but Fun
26 December 2001 | by phlflipSee all my reviews

"Teenage Zombies is a must see for the simple reason that Katherine Victor stars,the number 1 creep lady.The head zombie is hysterical and it,s fun to see victors cool calm demeanor in dealing with the frantic teens.The plot is typical and there are a few scary scenes but other than that it,s silly and fun.Lots of denim and bad acting but watch it anyway for its typically B movie style.
