This is one of the very few zombie movies where the word "zombie" is spoken. "Zombie" is said about 15 times. See more »
When Ellis shoots the original zombie in the head with the shot gun, the blood spatter hits him in the face. When he wipes it off he pulls the blood down across his face and mouth. When he speaks you can see the zombie's blood on his teeth. Earlier in the movie, Nightingale tells a character not to put something in his mouth cause it had infected blood on it. If this is the case, the blood that got in Ellis' mouth would have infected him. See more »
I'm a zombie-flick fan. =) I'll admit that readily, but it took me several months before I finally saw this movie because I was so utterly disappointed with the first one. In the first movie they had these incredibly annoying, flashing video game-sequences or something cut into the movie - probably to save money since that way they only had to make half a movie.
None of that crap here thank god! This was actually a pretty decent horror movie - with zombies! I say decent but for a zombie movie it was pretty darn good. The special effects were better than average for a zombie movie, so was actually everything about this movie. Even the zombies stagger better in this one than usual! The story has a good pace with plenty of "plot" and action through-out the movie, and the acting was surprisingly good. And with that I mean that some of the actors were actually really good and the others decent!
My verdict is that this movie is in no way a future classic by any means, but it is a decent horror movie and as far as zombie-movies are concerned - definitely a trend-breaker in the sense that it falls into the "decent"-category as a whole. Ususally zombie-flicks are either really good - or quite the opposite. So if you are looking for a decent horror movie or a good zombie-movie - see this one. But avoid the prequel at any cost...
