Fun movie for a Saturday night!
16 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One thing I've always liked about Sci-Fi channel is their fun movies they like to produce themselves.

Army Lt. Bobby Quinn (Dean Cain) and his platoon are assigned to a special trip to Cambodia to find out why a secret scientific lab stopped sending communications to the United States, and upon arriving at the secret lab, they are confronted with dead soldiers and scientists who are zombies infected by a mysterious mutated species of insects that the lab was working on. The zombies attack and kill Cain and his platoon and are later discovered by another expedition sent in to investigate.

The second group transports Cain and his platoon back to the United States to another secret research compound where he is presumed dead and awaiting processing in the morgue, when he wakes up during autopsy. Although Lt. Cain was bitten and infected and died like his platoon, for some reason, he doesn't completely die and turn into a flesh eating monster like the other soldiers. Seems that he has something in his blood that limits his zombie traits although he does take on some of the characteristics of the zombies like needing to eat raw meat. He is told that he has to stay on the compound but Cain's platoon, now flesh eating zombies, start waking up and killing the military and scientific staff at the compound. During the confusion Lt. Cain escapes the military compound with the help of his new friend, army cook Hieronymous Judson (Guy Torry) who, by the way is very comedic. Judson, Cain's new sidekick, is very funny and provides plenty of comic relief throughout the movie. Keep your eye on Guy, I'm betting you see more of him in the future.

So, Caine and Judson go on a crusade to find the compound with the source of the infection in the other secret compound. In a bar where Cain and Judson stop for a bite to eat (ha ha) he meets a saucy bartender named Holly (Susan Ward), a beautiful but independent heroine that is typical modern American woman: she can beat you up while looking beautiful. When Cain is caught by local authorities to take him back to the military compound where he's accused of murder, Holly steps in and rescues him, and gets caught up in the crusade after she sees friends at the bar die at the hand of hungry munching zombies. As the movie progresses, it becomes obvious that Holly has a thing for Cain.

As these three go from location to location looking to destroy the source of the infections, and kill zombies, they encounter bad guys and plenty of hungry zombies who love a good fight. There's lots of humor and flirting going on between Cain and Holly, and lots of good fun and cheesy zombie effects. So people, when you watch a Sci-Fi movie like this, be glad that they choose to carry on the great tradition of weekend horror movies that provide light entertainment and enjoy them for what they are: fun times and some good scares and laughs. This movie is recommended for a good time with that good friend, some popcorn and your favorite beverage!
