After a chemical leak at the Hope Centre in Papua New Guinea (an organization devoted to feeding underdeveloped countries) turns its staff into flesh-eating zombies, a four-man commando squad led by Mike London are sent to investigate. They run into a TV news crew led by celebrity reporter Lia, who are after the same story, but when they discover that the entire country has been overrun by zombies, what are the chances of them getting the message across? Unlike most zombie films, this actually tries to make a serious point - that if we don't feed the Third World, they'll come and feed on us! Written by

In the beginning scenes of the film, Professor Barrett records himself saying, "Operation Sweet Death must be considered a complete failure. Some kind of degeneration process has occurred which may be catastrophic for everyone. And may god forgive us for what we have produced here and pardon us for this evil we have created."
Towards the end of the film, one of the commandos plays Barrett's recording, and the words and tone of voice have changed to the point where it doesn't even follow the same lines as before. The recording repeats the speech as, "Operation Sweet Death must be considered a complete failure. Some kind of degenerate process has begun which could be catastrophic for everyone. May god forgive us for what we have produced and pardon us for this evil we've created." It sounds generally the same but his tone of voice changes from serious at the beginning, to casual-sounding on the recorder's playback. He also uses contractions in the playback speech that weren't used when he recorded it in the first place. See more
