Did You Know?


Almost every time someone has blood on their clothes, the amount changes from scene to scene. In addition to the co-pilot, one of the more noticeable ones is Cara, the girl who throws up in the bathroom. When she comes in she has a tiny amount of blood on her forehead, but after throwing up, she has a large amount of blood on her face. Also, the guy sitting next to her has splashes on his jacket, but right after he has way more. See more »


Long Shot: [before opening the plane's door] Is that you Bennett? Shit. Come on mothefucker. I wanna make sure you keep that shitty little grin on your face. All the way to hell!

VERY fine Zombie movie!!
12 April 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I didn't know ANYTHING about this movie until last night. Expected a crappy low budget ripoff of "Snakes on a Plane". But since this was made BEFORE "Snake" I guess it's the other way around ;) Well as I said I expected a crappy movie in the Sci-Fi Channel mold. But what I got was an EXTREMELY entertaining action/horror that puts this Zombie flick on the same top 10 list as Rodrigues "Planet Terror".

Sure it's a low budget movie but I doesn't feel like it. I would gladly have paid for a ticket to seen it on the big screen.

Now THIS is how you make use of a limited budget.

We got HUGE amounts of Zombies and gore (okey not like Planet Terror but plenty enough) and lot's of action and explosions, especially in the last half hour.

What I also liked was the characters. Usually in low budget movies we get the most crappiest and annoying actors on the planet, but in this one they can ACTUALLY act, and most of them are likable as well.

Not unlike Snakes on a Plane where you HATED them all ;)

The Zombie make-up FX were brilliant and they were the crazy brutal type of zombies as in the remake of Dawn of the Dead. They actually made me jump a few times as well. Now THAT doesn't happen to often ;)

Except for a few CGI shots this have the look and feel of a real theater movie. Shame it went the Direct to Video route with a crappy cover.

This is a movie that deserves an following.

So look it up folks. It's a classic :)
