When a terrorist's body, infected with a stolen chemical, is recovered by the US military, the corpse is cremated, unintentionally releasing the virus/bacteria into the atmosphere over a small island. Soon the infected populace mutate into flesh-hungry zombies, and a trio of soldiers on leave must team up with a group of tourists and board themselves up in an abandoned hotel as they try to fend off the agile and aggressive living dead.

Absolutely Hilarious! No plot! No sense! Moronic beyond belief!!
19 January 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Probably the most spectacularly BAD Italian-Filipino co-production in recent memory, followed closely by Strike Commando and Cop Game. As usual for Bruno Mattei, the film made very little sense at all out of Claudio Fragasso's inanely lackluster and unimaginitive script. Obviously none of the filmmakers realized that the zombies should stay reasonably consistant. What's this with zombies still talking after they die? What's with the blueheart guy, why is he in the Phillipines, and why does he continue to go to work even after being zombified! Before watching this movie I actually had *some* respect for Mike Monty's and Robert Marius's acting abilities. Not anymore, though it was funny watching them wave their fists at each other in several scenes. The actual main characters were pathetic and their idiotic dialog and quirky non-existent personalities made them seem like anime characters. Take the part where Roger is blowing away a bunch of zombies (in cheesily pre-shredded clothing), he runs out of ammo and says loudly at the screen "uh-oh! Looks like I've had it! Hyuh!" He tosses the clip away and proceeds to fight the zombies hand-to-hand rather than catch the disembarking helicopter. What an idiot. The army guys weren't much better, throwing their guns down in favor of trying to fight the well-armed heroes hand-to-hand. The lame hooch-explosion seemed almost identical to those in Gianfranco Couyoumdjian's LAST FLIGHT TO HELL, which also starred Mike Monty.

This movie ineptly goes in so many directions at once and is so disjointed that it is nearly impossible to review. I suggest you see it for yourself if you enjoy unintentionally terrible films with fairly high budgets.

On a final note I don't see why a zombie could survive a stake through the neck, yet a fall from a 2nd floor window would kill one.
