Awakening is yet another zombie movie that makes me wonder what its
intention was supposed to be. You got the typical "people lost in
zombietown" story with 2 gangs trying to survive and building
themselves shelter from the zombies who strangely only come out at
night. To make it more ridiculous they don't join forces but kind of
fight each other which didn't make any sense to me like many other
parts of this movie didn't. Many things in this movie are just thrown
in the pot and stirred without any logical explanation... best example
of the trashy script are the ridiculous sex scenes thrown in with some
booby shots all in one passage. The zombies are standard, the gore is
minimal, the acting is substandard and the sound of the movie in
dialogs is bad. After all it could have been a typical trash-fest with
some humor (like the ghettoboy with his cool slangtalk) and zombiegore.
Unfortunately the staff couldn't decide which way to go and bored a
long way along the road to end up nowhere pretty much. The first ending
is as idiotic as in movies like "Stink of flesh" ... meaning it doesn't
have an ending. And the added rapture scene is pretty funny, yet thrown
into the movie like everything else. There's too many better or at
least entertaining in a trashy way movies than this one, so better
