Storyline

After killing four persons in his home with a shotgun, Dee Travis claims that he had accidentally ingested an experimental biotoxin that the company Blackthorn where he worked was researching. Travis is sent visibly ill to the Harwood Maximum Security Prison and the Security Officer Sweeny sends the inmate to the infirmary. Meanwhile the CDC Agent Samantha Beckett comes to the prison to interview Travis and is received by Warden Mahler. While they are having a conversation, they are informed that Travis has been transferred to the solitary confinement and his infected blood has caused an outbreak among the prisoners and guards. Samantha calls the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the responsible advises the warden that the prison is in quarantine. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Not one of those sissy zombie movies
28 October 2005 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The DVD cover art somewhat suggests a Dawn of the Dead type story.

So if you look at the cover art and are somewhat interested in checking it out... go ahead. I'm not a fan of over the top, low budget gore, but this is one of those films that makes fans of horror wish they could get some kind of budget to make a movie with their friends.

Surprisingly creepy.

The plot is the standard infection loosed in a maximum security prison.

In a bare bones prison environment Dark, frenetic, fast motion scenes when zombies attack, and (I have to admit) pretty gruesome dismemberment scenes.

The Romero movies seem kind of sanitized compared to this.

So in a nutshell, if you like zombie horror movies and you pick this up and have to think "Should I take a chance"?, go ahead.

Sissy.
