Nothing like zombie mayhem to put a country town on the map.
22 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Jake and his brother Denton have taken over their father's garage business, and they called upon a job to pick up an abandon vehicle out near the woods. It belongs to some locals camping in the woods, so before taking it, they check if they are still in the area, but they come across a cabin with dead corpses and one feral occupant with a craving for flesh. This starts some sort of strange infection, where his brother was bitten and suddenly it's effecting the whole tight-knit community. With no noway out of the town, because of a massive accident blocking there only way out. It's up to Jake, his ex-girlfriend Alex who has just arrived in town and cynically gun-proud Randy to stop what seems to be mysterious parasites turning the local citizens into blood-thirsty zombies, before they escape into the wider population.

Nice! I'm glad I took the chance with this quite recent low-budget zombie splatter treat. Before getting it, I had it in and out of my hands, but I thought what the hell and it turned out rather enjoyable. All the prominent staples (and influences) are there; nauseating gore, flash of nudity, shots to head, zombie munching and icky zombie make-up effects. Romero's legacy definitely shines through, but the use of parasites brought up the 80's horror film "Night of the Creeps". Which I think this one owes a lot to. On that point, I see it playing out more like a homage, then a plain rip-off. Sure the senselessly blunt and token story is derivative with it's same old plot devices and developments (nothing like zombie slug-fest to ignite two old flames), but a thick dose of telegraphed morbid humour and smart-laced one liners were a welcoming inclusion. The plot doesn't matter too much. Comic cheese basically fills the amusing script, always timing itself for its next snappy one-liner and unbelievably ridiculous reactions. The origin and intentions of the parasites are cloudy drawn up, which might be a downer for some.

Damon Lemay keeps the action pretty lively with many grisly details and few suspenseful jolts that do work, even with the surprisingly workable mock attitude to proceedings. Make-up effects are well captured, and while the computer generated effects look dodgy (truck accident), but they don't do any harm and are truly forgotten when the unpleasant zombie action breaks out. Camera-work sometimes can get trapped on zoom, but its frenetic style has control. Some interesting colour filtering strikes up some atmospheric visuals, and the adjustable soundtrack mixes it's country twang with heavy metal aching to the suitability of the scene. The performances might be amateurishly overacting, but they brought the right feel to their characters. The leads weren't bad. Dennis Lemoine gives the film it's punch with his dry remarks and gung-ho approach as Randy. Adam Hose in a blithely restraint turn is agreeable as Jake and Brynn Lucas is plays the gorgeously brainy chick Alex with decent amount of aplomb.

Not bad, not bad at all. "Zombie Town" might not be original and one to ponder on, but this fodder is enthusiastically made by genre fans who have seen too many zombie films and there's nothing wrong with that. This Indie film is well worth a look.
