Rusty Nails, the maker of B-movie flicks Blood Maker and Animated Corpse, brings the story of two teen zit zombies to the screen. Franny (Tracey Hayes) and Zooey (Rusty Nails) drink some bad water and turn into giant, oozing pimples. They try to figure out what's happening to them, but along the way, they start infecting other teens and becoming strangely addicted to chocolate. Soon, the Army is looking for them as they fight to stay alive.
While sharing thematic … mehrelements with classic horror films such as TEENAGERS FROM OUTER SPACE and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the stylistic origins of ACNE are steeped in the French Nouvelle Vague. Apart from its literary nods (most notably to J. D. Salinger), ACNE has a terrific sense of cinema (listen for violin strains reminiscent of the theme from FRANKENSTEIN when Zooey meets an old gypsy woman traveling the countryside). weniger
