In Leadville, Colorado, Captain Rhodes and his army seals off the town to contain an influenza-type epidemic. The locals are not allowed to leave the town and the Pine Valley Medical Center is crowded with sick people. Corporal Sarah Bowman was born and raised in Leadville and goes to her home with Private Bud Crain to visit her mother. Sarah finds that her mother is ill and takes her to the local hospital. However, the sick people suddenly transform in flesh eating, fast moving zombies which attack the non-infected humans. Sarah, Bud and Private Salazar get a jeep and head to the town exit to escape from the dead. But Sarah hears the voice of her brother, Trevor, on the radio and is compelled to go to the radio station where Trevor is hidden with his girlfriend Nina. The group of survivors drives to the isolated Nike missile site seeking shelter, where they discover an underground army base. Written by

Although the film's plot shares little with the original, many of the scenes and situations from the original are duplicated, such as debating on whether or not a fellow member should be killed even though there's a chance he won't become a zombie, a zombie firing a gun, and the heroes having to make their way through an abandoned missile silo.

Captain Rhodes wears matching Captain's bars on the lapels of his uniform. Army officers only wear rank insignia on their right lapel. The left lapel is reserved for that officer's branch insignia, i.e. crossed rifles for Infantry, crossed sabers for Cavalry, crossed pistols for Military Police, etc. See more »
This shit is ridiculous. I mean, why Thriller over here ain't trying to eat us?
He's a vegetarian.
That's the best explanation you can come up with?
You got a better one?
All I'm saying, as long he don't try to mistake me for a soy bean burger, we're gonna be all right.

What's with the running? And now with the jumping and wall crawling? Okay so everyone says it's bad, but it's not that bad. It's just a zombie movie. I laughed a couple of times, and rolled my eyes a couple of times. Wasn't really scared though. There's no real looming claustrophobic terror there. It's more like the shock violence of 28 days later and 28 weeks later, that mixed some Aliens knock off, and strangely enough Scary Movie. The zombie effects are OK, bit like an episode of Buffy, and then there's the film effects like the beginning of Dawn of the Dead. It's no way as good as the new Dawn of the Dead, and is a bit of a let down, but it's just a zombie movie. It's strait to DVD, but I'd wait for the sales.
