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 »

Quotes

Julian Garrison: [Zeke has become a zombie] I'm gonna kill you, Zeke.

I thought this one held true to the "Return..." franchise.
22 June 2009 | by (michigan,USA) – See all my reviews

I expected the worst when I heard this movie was premiering on the Sci-Fi channel. I am a huge fan of campy horror films and this one was really good. Initially, I thought this was a made-for-TV movie. After I noticed it was released on DVD I figured, I liked the other ones, "Why not at least give this one a shot?" It was definitely not shot with TV in mind. It met my expectations for a film like this, yeah, it's bad, but in a good way. Yeah, it has bad acting, but who are we kidding? We aren't looking for Oscar-winning performances in a film like this. While it doesn't have the same charm as Return Of The Living Dead or the sequel. It still made me chuckle more than a couple times and had enough gore to please gore fans.

I give it 5 out of 10.
