Storyline

Out of the darkness, the Grim Reaper appears in a graveyard among headstones and gargoyles. Elegantly cloaked, but masked by shadows, his eyes burn yellow as he tells us we all have a little evil inside us. Take Zach Kincaid... A lonely and intense 14-year-old horror movie junkie, Zach is a good kid but a little confused as a result of his parents' recent break-up. Perhaps for this reason, he often tends to stretch the truth. His friends, J.T. Heffernan, a computer geek, and Gabrielle "Gabe" Lattanzi, a lovely, intelligent athlete, humor Zach, but know just how much to believe. On the way home one weekend, Zach becomes lost on a deserted subway platform. When he stops for directions he is attacked, but rescued in the nick of time by Valentine, a self-styled vegetarian vampire from the turn of the century. Finding cold comfort in Valentine's assurance of protection, Zach runs for the first available train. Unfortunately, he steps onto the Undead Express, which is full of vampires who ...

Low-Paced Good Vampire Story
18 March 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New York, the teenager Zach (Chauncey Leopardi) is a compulsive liar since his parents divorced, and he has sessions with a psychologist. His best friends are the teenagers Gabe (Natanya Ross) and J.T. (Tony T. Johnson), and he is a fan of horror movies. When Zach gets lost in an old access to the subway, he meets the vampire Valentine (Ron Silver), who protects him against other vampires in a train, and they become friends. Gabe and J.T. do not believe on Zach, and he returns to the abandonment station to prove that the undead do exist.

"Shadow Zone: The Undead Express" is a low-paced good vampire story. The screenplay and characters are well developed. With more action and humor, this movie could be excellent, but anyway it does not disappoint. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Zona das Sombras: O Expresso dos Mortos-Vivos" ("Shadow Zone: The Undead Express")
