An embarrassment to Canadian film professionals
20 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Every once and awhile, you'll watch a film that will inspire you, entertain you, move you to tears, have you laughing out loud, and even raise from your seat and make you cheer. This is NOT one of those films. Aside from wishing/hoping that no one outside the people that were involved in the making of this film actually watched it, I'm ashamed this film so brazenly states it's Canadian roots.

Everything about this film was substandard; the poor writing, cinematography, editing, make-up, and especially the acting. I appreciate the fact that you can't overkill another release in the zombie genre....no I take that back. This film did. A very bad release from another Romero wanna-be. Perhaps this would have been successful as a senior year student theatre play, but not as a film...even with a questionable budget. A waste of money, and 80 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
