Plot

The movie centers on three high school students whose world is turned upside down by tainted moonshine which turns everyone who drinks it into a flesh eating zombie. It does not take long for the whole town to be overrun.

Release

Broken Springs had its world premier on June 4, 2010 in Hollywood at the Dances With Films festival on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California. The second showing was September 24, 2010 at the Chicago Horror Film Festival. Broken Springs also screened at the inaugural Anaheim International Film Festival, the Southern Appalachian International Film Festival, The Spooky Movie Film Festival (aka Washington D.C. International Horror Festival), and the Telluride Horror Show Film Festival. A teaser trailer was released on YouTube on October 26, 2009.

In 2012, the film was distributed under the title 101 Zombies and became available for rent on YouTube, Charter Cable On-Demand and Amazon.

Soundtrack

The Soundtrack featured songs from The Flow of Opinion and Jake McMurray.

Critical reception

Variety wrote that the film borrowed "equally from George A. Romero and Joe Dante for its wit and politics", and that "fans exhausted with big-budget zombie movies will be refreshed" by the film.

OC Weekly reviewer Matt Coker remarked, "How can one not love a film with 'undead', 'zombieā€' and 'bastards' in the same title?", "barely" recommended the film, writing that as it acts as an "homage of sorts" to other low/no budget zombie films, and has "just enough humor and ironic stereotypes to make up for the poor acting, bad lighting and looooooong build up to the inevitable conclusion".
