Storyline

Animals attacks, says the TV news. But two ex-security agents know the real cause - maybe the real culprits. Shahrokh and Argenta are former employees of a company they knew to be conducting bizarre medical experiments. What has resulted are not animals attacks, but attacks by humans turned into vicious, decomposing, cannibalistic zombies. Their efforts to stem the violence in vain, hunted by the authorities, Shahrokh and Argenta escape the city just as it is engulfed in chaos. Their only hope lies in finding and organizing the few remaining survivors. What they find - three women claiming to be vampires with high-tech weaponry, a deranged and washed-up Mexican wrestler, a wounded soldier, and a scientist who may know more than he lets on - offer more questions than answers. Can this tiny cadre hope to defeat an army of the undead? And if they succeed...will there be anyone left alive? Written by Anonymous

zombie fans should enjoy.
14 January 2004 | by (Norfolk, England) – See all my reviews

Two former employees of a company that did experiments with nano science or something of the like are out trying to take care of the things they have a small responsibility in making. The dead are killing the living and eating their flesh and soon there will be no more of the living. With the help of three vampires and a Mexican wrestler, can they stop the onslaught?

As soon as the film starts you should know what you are in for. It's a no budget zombie fest. The plot doesn't hold up to much but it's a zombie film what do you expect. The acting is defiantly the worst part of this film. It is dire. The writing doesn't help. These people talk like no one I have ever seen in my life. Questions are often answered with just a strange look of movement of the head. The effects are ok for the budget but at times the film gets a little boring and it seems your just waiting for some more gore to show up so a little more wouldn't have gone a miss. As I said, at times it gets a little slow and you wonder what the two main characters are actually trying to achieve. At first it seems like they are just going to barricade themselves in for a few years then they go out looking for more survivors.

The characters are pretty one dimensional and there isn't much development of them. The Mexican wrestler is hilarious thought, especially with his obviously dubbed on voice. That was a great little touch. There are also some nice sex scenes to keep us amused including a lovely lesbian scene for the guys. These seem put in just for the sake of it but then I'm not going to complain.

Even with all its bad points it is a very entertaining film and it was the directors first so it's a great first effort and I'm sure he learnt a lot form it. For all zombie film fans it should go down pretty well. For everyone else maybe not

7/10.
