Decent and unconventional shot on video zombie entertainment
10 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I has a pretty decent time watching this one, which I saw under the name Zombies Anonymous. I don't watch too many of these low budget, shot on video affairs because I don't take too kindly to the look of them and usually even when the gore works, the picture itself just looks too bright and home movie style for me to appreciate. However, I dug Marc Fratto's last outing, Strange Things Happen At Sundown, and liked the look of this one since I read the first review to appear on this site so I was happy to catch it last night. It did not disappoint, I am glad to say, offering up fun plotting, a cool twist on the zombie genre and plenty of good ideas. The central concept here is that the dead are returning, but they aren't brainless cannibalistic monsters, just normal folk who happen to be dead and only able to stomach meat, but retain their personalities, ability to speak and whatnot. Unfortunately the idea of living dead is grossly unpalatable to most people so the dead become a hated underclass. Into this whole situation comes Angela, recently killed and having to deal with it. Now, I really liked the idea of this film, as well as the way the plot played out, there were moments of inspired humour, interesting characters and a well constructed and developed plot. The execution was good in some ways and flawed in others. The acting was very variable for a start. I thought Gina Ramsden was decent as Angela and that Joshua Nelson did a good job as her ex, Josh, but on the other hand I never found Christa McNamee convincing in her role as the Commandant. She put in a good effort but just didn't work for the role. Most of the performances were on either of these two ends, and it wasn't helped by the overdose of shouting and profanity in the dialogue. I accept that this kind of situation isn't conducive to quietude and politeness, but hearing people shouting expletives a lot at each other gets wearing pretty quickly. Its a shame because with better dialogue this film would have been top flight for a production of its calibre. The direction is solid for the most part, not too slick but making the most of the resources and acting talent. The gore was pretty cool for a film like this, sure it wasn't exactly realistic but there was muchos spilling and spraying of the red stuff as well as a happy dose of icky flesh munching and other mutilation, building to a pretty spectacular finale. Altogether, whilst this certainly isn't going to impress people who can't stand the shot on video style of cinema, and I don't think it worked quite as well as Strange Things Happen At Sundown (though I may be wrong as I haven't seen that one in a while), this is certainly a fine and entertaining achievement, well worth checking out for fans of this sort of thing.
