She's not getting any fresher.
14 February 2014 | by (Leesburg, FL) – See all my reviews

Young Howard (Tommy Dean Musset) loses his sister (Bárbara Elorrieta) to a zombie (Ángel Plana) and becomes a doctor (Jason Barry) to gain access to the man (Jeffrey Combs) who can bring her back to life.

The special effects are outstanding, and the sexual tension with Laura (Elsa Pataky), an investigative reporter is a driving force in the movie. Of course, she only teases us with her voluptuousness. We have to rely on nurse Vanessa (Raquel Gribler) to give us the money shot before her tit is bitten off.

The slimy warden, played by Simón Andreu, is brilliant. There are plenty of other interesting characters in the prison where Dr. West (Combs) is incarcerated.

Things get downright gruesome, and wildly hilarious, after a prison riot and make sure you stay through the credits.
