During last year's Hot Zombie Nights, I took my first tentative steps into reviewing zombie porn with the atrocious Dawna the Dead. I could have stopped there, but if I've learned anything it's that I never learn. I wasn't about to let soul-crushing, stomach-churning depictions of emotionless sex stop me from taking a look at the zombie sexploitation movie Re-Penetrator.
Re-Penetrator, a loose spoof of Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator, was my first pick for this month's exploration of zombie porn because it stars a familiar face, at least to me: Joanna Angel. Earlier this year, I met and interviewed Joanna Angel in person at Shock Stock 2012 where she proved to be a very sweet and thoughtful woman. You can hear my interview with Joanna Angel on episode #45 of the Screamwave podcast. At Shock Stock, we were treated to Fuckenstein, her latest Halloween sex flick. Sex aside, it was a funny and tongue-in-cheek spoof of classic Universal horror. After that show, I asked myself, "Why not take a look back in Joanna's film history and screen Re-Penetrator?"

If the promise of gory zombie sex and bloody-soaked blow jobs don't make you faint of heart, meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Re-Penetrator.

Honestly, the sex is pretty boring if you strip away all the gore, but since the gore is there, the sex is both boring and repulsive. If not for Pistol's periodic mugging and the filmmakers' commitment to making things as outrageous and disgusting as possible, Re-Penetrator would be as soul-crushing as the wretched Dawna the Dead. However, Re-Penetrator is worth a few laughs even though Pistol and Joanna Angel never manage to make the whole repellent set-up erotic in the slightest.
Still, how often do you get to see a Re-Animator porn parody? That has to count for something, right?
