Check out the funky work of Director Chad Hendricks, starting with his combo Blaxploitation Zombie Flick, Insane in the Brain, and his slasher comedy, Kracker Jack'd! Weigh in on the characters, plot, filiming and series in the comments below!
From the Director:
"Kracker Jack'd" is the 2nd movie I wrote & directed. It was distributed by Maverick Entertainment & in Blockbusters nationwide. Originally it was an idea I had in a dream called "Sickle Cell Psycho", where a whiteboy thinks he's black & gets dissed by a bunch of homies throwing a house party. Of course bloodshed ensues! When it was all thru, I tried for a "Friday meets Friday the 13th" vibe that plays like an old Dolemite comedy. Roll a blunt, sip a 40 & break out the raw cookie dough & enjoy:) The link below if you wanna buy it on dvd with all the bloopers & bts:)
Insane In The Brain!
"HEAD-HUNTIN ZOMBIES RUN THE PLACE...AS A SUPERFLY DUO GIVES CHASE!"
Funky pheromones from a nearby whorehouse awakes the living dead, who rise from the grave seeking oral gratifying heaaa...uhhh, BRAINZZZ!!! Enter Goldie & Sloan, two undercover, black caddy ridin', collar poppin', polyester rockin' pigs who are pissed...with mood rings, afros, and a pic with a fist!
Can the dynamic duo stop the powerful eau de' ho? Or will the zombies keep poppin' up at the drive-in show?!
And with Pimp'n and his working girls acting as bait, Can the cops and bobbers keep the zombies straight?!
Well it won't be easy, And it won't be cake...Not even Easy Bake!

Director Chad Lancaster Hendricks says: "Insane in the Brain", imagine Afro-Zombies creepin to hoe houses & drive-ins in search of head---err, BRAINZZZ! MORE BRAINZZZ!! & you'll be on the same page with me when I wrote this gem! Too much fun!! For the record, it's not a spoof, you doof, it's my appreciation for Superfly, Shaft, Return of the Living Dead, etc. If you get the jokes & the 70s references to Clark patties, Teddy P & Rudy Ray Moore, then enjoy this campy, B-flick that I happily call my 3rd child:)
