look out Hollywood these zombies are better
15 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in blockbuster in the UK and was a bit intrigued by the cartooned cover. I knew that this film was about zombies and I LOVE ZOMBIE FILMS. Although i wasn't sure how good it was (i didn't want to see another cheap and very nasty (and not in a good way) crappy zombie horror so it was at least a couple of weeks after i saw the trailer and read the user reviews on here that i finally took a proper look at it. Although the film is from Greece, it did put me off a tiny bit but then i realised that i have other horrors in my collection that are Japanese and other foreign languages that were pretty damn good, so what the hell i rented it. I'm glad i did, yeah i'm very glad i did. I was very happy with what i saw. Plenty of zombie deaths in gory fashion. Tons of blood and guts. This was better than Dawn of the dead remake. I also loved the humour in it too. The characters were funny and also great at kicking zombie ass. The scene in the diner was well worth getting the DVD for. You'll see if you watch it. I also loved the imaginative ways that they butchered the undead. Lots of zombies die in this movie in very gruesome fashion.

Another good thing about this film was the shock ending, it's refreshing to see a proper horror ending than the hero walks off into the sunset, makes it more believable unlike Hollywood.

If they do make a sequel. i'll definitely watch it as this one was great. A good laugh and a good gore-fest too. It's good to see that zombie films are making a comeback like this. balls to the wall action gore-fest. Word of advice if you do want to watch this film and you get the DVD, DON'T LOOK AT THE CHAPTER LIST cause it gives away the ending. Just sit back, crack open a beer and enjoy the fun movie of EVIL. Look out Hollywood they coming to get you!!!!
