Quotes

[first lines]
Michelle: [narration] Six Months, that's how long it took for the world as we knew it to come to an end. The bible preached the world would end in fire and war. It ended in plauges and hunger. All brought on by the technology built to protect us. Conventional Weapons weren't enough, we built more powerful weapons. Weapons capable of spreading disease, plagues or hunger, weapons designed to do the un-imaginable... and in the end, it took one man with one weapon.

A brief, fair review...
5 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At a bare minimum, Gary Ugarak's film stands out as an example of innovation trumping limitation. It's brisk (a little over an hour), and the production deficiencies are more than obvious (note the different video quality from shot to shot during some of the large scale scenes). But the fundamental story of a zombie apocalypse is so nicely rendered that one can't help but smile. The performances aren't particularly natural, but the film doesn't waste a moment of screen time.

There's not a whole lot of original content, but Ugarak's execution makes up for it. Deadlands is a worthy addition to the genre of the undead.

Flamers need to lighten up and give credit where due.
