Starring: Daniel Hirsch, Kelli Maroney and Nicole Rio
As the last guy gets shot, everything is revealed to be no more than a game of paintball where it's every other paintball team versus The Zero Boys, a trio of close buddies on a winning streak. As their trophy, they claim one of the girls from the other teams (Kelli Maroney from that killer-robot slasher Chopping Mall (1986), promising her a good time with them as they head towards some hills for some well-deserved relaxation.
It was 1986 and Director Nico Mastorakis, along with co-writer Fred Perr, tried to create a unique entry to the (then) dried-up slasher subgenre and probably hoped it'll hit it right. The build-up is good to say the least, the direction has great tension and tone, but with very little of these characters properly developed and with an ending so rushed, The Zero Boys left us hanging as a slasher and a survivalist flick.
If you dig B-Action horrors, this film got lots of potential albeit unachieved. Perhaps a remake should be suggested for this.
