Trivia

(at around 55 mins) After devouring a security guard's brain, a zombie picks up a phone the guard had been speaking into and says "Send more security guards!" This pays direct homage to the original The Return of the Living Dead (1985), in which a zombie who had been devouring a paramedic picks up the radio in the ambulance and says "Send more paramedics."

Goofs

(at around 43 mins) When they are in the air ducts asking for directions over the radio, we see the map a girl is looking at and the compass is wrong. Instead of being North at the top, East on the right, South at the bottom and West on the left, it shows North on the top, West on the right, South on the bottom and East on the left. See more »

high-schoolers v zombies
19 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow. Where should I start. I've seen quite a few zombie movies in my lifetime, and there is always a never ending supply of worthless garbage in the genre. Not to say worthless garbage cant be fun, i happened to enjoy much of the stupidity and plot holes of "Hard-Rock Zombies" (a movie where an 80's hard rock band goes up against Hitler and his horde of zombies). They can be good for a laugh, no doubt. But THIS particular movie, this just wasn't funny, scary, or entertaining at all.

ROTLD4 plays like one of the movies i've seen actual high-schoolers tape without knowing or caring how to edit.

The makeup, granted passed as acceptable, but the super-soldiers were like a cross between a nemesis (from Resident Evil) and what happens to a squirrel while you clean it, (it gets turned inside out for all of you city-dwellers.)

If i start to talk about the ridiculous and unbelievable plot, its very possible i could rant for far longer than i'm willing to devote to this movie. It was atrocious. 'Nuff said.

Listening to this movie is about as bad as watching it. The crappy generic rock music every time the local kids hop on their dirt-bikes gets old. And when you repeat that same music for every scene a zombie bursts out of a ventilation shaft, you're only making it harder for anyone wanting to find something worthwhile about this film.

As to the dialog, wha' happened? The kid cant shoot his friend because "I lost my virginity to her man!" is not only the most ridiculous and strange thing ever to appear in a film, but its not the worst. The guy from E.T. (Peter Coyote), when asked why hes creating these zombies replies with, "For world domination! What else?" How can you explain a gigantic facility and a "nursery" for zombies as a bout for world domination? Whats more interesting is, he DOESN'T EVEN EXPLAIN how he's supposed to dominate the world with zombies.

The main character was a total wuss, and one of the supporting characters was featured using numbchuks, rappelling from a skyscraper, fighting karate style, shooting high-powered smgs with perfect aim, and hacking computers.

Please, waste your time on this movie. It'll make you appreciate competent actors.
