Italian Production, British Locale
11 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When you've got a lead character in the person of an army captain named Kirk, this should give you some idea of how seriously to take this film. I don't recall in the film whether his first name was mentioned.

David Warbeck is Captain Kirk and he's on a mission for the British Army which is in Panic mode in Panic. It seems that a certain scientist got badly exposed to some of his bacterial experiments and turns into a flesh eating fiend. Fortunately for the human race his experiments were in a small English town. Not so fortunate for the residents of said town where the army is seriously considering just euthanizing the place lest the spread grow. As it is they've quarantined the joint.

Janet Agren plays the scientists assistant who would like to help her boss if possible. She's working on the antidote, but will Captain Kirk let her use it. He'd like to save the town, but he's not terribly concerned about the scientist.

Panic is a strange Italian made film that was shot in England concerning an English subject and locale. Getting a couple of British players to do the film in David Warbeck and Janet Agren gave it a British veneer of sorts. Still it really doesn't rise beyond most slasher flicks.
