Storyline

While illegally selling one canister of Trioxyin-5, Charlie Garrison is murdered by a zombie. His nephew Julian Garrison finds two canisters hidden in the attic of his house with his girlfriend Jenny and they ask their friend Cody to analyze and research the chemical product. Cody finds that the composition of the product is very similar to ecstasy and he processes the chemical, making a large quantity of a drug that he called "Z" to make money. Using the services of the local drug dealer, they sell "Z" in the college campus. In the Halloween, the DJ and Jenny's brother Jeremy organizes a rave party. Meanwhile, Julian, Jenny and Cody disclose that the drug transform the users in zombies, and with the support of two weird agents, they try to stop the distribution of "Z".

Trivia

One of the characters is named "Coach Savini". This is a "tip of the hat" to horror effects artist Tom Savini, who perfected the classic zombie look in most of the George Romero films. See more »

Goofs

Becky, Julian, and Cody are the three main characters in the previous film. They seem to no recollection of zombies or anything that has happened. Also Julian is upset when he gets the news about his uncles death, yet he tried to kill him in the previous movie and as well the cause of his younger brother's and his parents and his friends deaths. Julian also remarks he didn't know what his uncle work on yet he told him and his friends in the previous film what he did. See more »

Quotes

Cody: Based on what we've seen, if anybody were to drop some Z, they'd become a zombie no matter what!

Director and writers: What did I ever do to you?
18 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why..........why............why..........were these two movies made? Why did you get Fangoria to write an article that made these movies seem worth watching? The article was better than the movies. What were you thinking being somewhat reputable as B-movie writers, directors, and actors claiming in Fangoria that "Bill (Butler) wrote the Rave script dealing with the fans directly." What fans? We zombie fans aren't such a hard-to-please bunch, but I think that "the fans" would be offended to be in any way linked with this piece of crap and that other Necropolis disaster. These two movies made me saddened in general, but fortunately, Land of the Dead was being re-released in an unrated director's cut a couple of days later and the interview with Mr.Romero reaffirmed my love for good directors committed to bringing us, the fans, quality zombie film entertainment. Thank-you for listening.
