The locals are not allowed to leave the town and the Pine Valley Medical Center is crowded with sick people.

At the time of the film's release, the Army had already replaced its green camouflage Battle Dress Uniform with the pixel-gray Army Combat Uniform. Even if for some reason their unit hadn't gotten ACUs, the BDU is still worn improperly by every soldier in the film. They should have unit patches on the left shoulder, and an American flag on the right shoulder. See more »

The director surely mustn't of been a big fan of this genre when he signed up for it. I just don't understand how somebody who has achieved the status of becoming a film director could end up spoiling a movie that could of been so good!
OK, so i guess he wanted to take a different approach to the Zombie movie. Maybe add to Zach Schnyder's good effort with DAWN. But to make Zombies able to leap 20ft and walk on walls and ceilings. I mean really!!! What were you thinking?!?! You've well and truly messed up big time and done nothing for you career. I apologise for sounding a bit harsh but millions of fans of this DEAD franchise expected a lot better to say the least. I was gutted from the first twenty minutes. The casting was way bad too. Who in their right mind would have Mena Suvari as an Army Corporal?? Ving Rhames does his best. Make up and special effects were extremely mediocre as well.
My advice, wait for Diary of the Dead. And see how a zombie flick is supposed to be made.
