This is NOT a zombie movie! Not by any definition!
1 April 2006 | by (The Great NorthEast) – See all my reviews

I was told by another poster here that this was a zombie movie, so I found a cheap VHS copy on eBay and plopped down some PayPal to check it out. Sad to say, this is NOT a zombie movie. It's even MORE NOT of a zombie movie than "28 Days Later..." was. "28 Days Later..." and "Warning Sign" depict LIVE people, who become infected with a virus/germ that turns them into raging lunatics. "28 Days" was more extreme than "WS", in that the infection was instantaneous upon contact with contaminated fluid, whereas in "WS", the germ was airborne, and first you get really sick, then you PASS OUT (they didn't die--they showed the one guy was still breathing), and when you wake up, you are COHERENT, you RECOGNIZE others, you're just REALLY ANGRY and want to hurt people. In "28 Days", they were BLINDED by the rage, they screamed and grunted rather than talked, they bit and clawed--they were reduced to animals, while in "WS", they had conversations with the people before attacking them, if you can call those attacks. The "infected" in "28 Days" make those in "WS" look like PMSing Girl Scouts. I was kinda disappointed in "WS", even though it had a pretty good cast for 1985--but it was kinda sappy towards the end, too "they all lived happily ever after" for me. I'm sorry, but the "infected" in "WS" were NOT even close to resembling zombies!
