Indigo Motion Pictures
Starring:
 Robert Lee Oliver, Donatella Hecht
Directed by: James Aviles Martin

Synopsis: A strange sexually transmitted virus turns mothers in a small community into flesh-eating zombies in this extremely low budget horror flick.

Purr Blur: At one point two of the zombie mothers are rooting through a dumpster for something to sate their appetites in between snacking on their own kids. It’s hard to see in the badly lighted footage but one of the mothers pulls a tabby cat out of the bin. The two hold each end of the cat.

Kitty Carnage Warning!  After this the cat is thankfully replaced by a fake cat and cat screeches are dubbed in as they pull the cat apart and the one mother starts to eat it.

Final Mewsings: Cats would rather people not have them for dinner.

Many thanks to Nick Wale for letting us know about the cat in this movie . . . we think!

As Harriet talks to the banker, Albert walks over and picks up the cat, which is quite big. He walks a few steps with the cat before spotting an old dilapidated soda fountain bar. The cat is forgotten and does not show up again for the rest of the film.

This particular moment in the film is based on van Gogh’s painting of Daubigny’s Garden and there is some question as to why the black cat was painted out of later versions. More on this subject can be found on the Johnny Times website.
