Deadly attack of the atrocious German accents...
26 July 2012 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

"Virus Undead" is a 200% retarded and incompetent horror flick, but then again, what else do you expect from a director who's named Wolf Wolff? If his cinematic skills are as inspirational as his choice in artist names, you just know we're in trouble. The film was cleverly released at the heights of the bird flu paranoia a few years ago. In Europe – and particularly in Germany, since there fell a handful of casualties if I remember correctly – this epidemic caused quite a lot of disturbance and chaos, so it's only logical that sly writers/directors would exploit it in gratuitous and low-budgeted horror movies. So actually, this could have been a cool movie, but sadly it's not. The one thing that immediately (and irreversibly) ruins the film straight from the beginning are the entire cast's atrocious German accents when they recite their lines in English. I don't blame native German speakers for having an accent, but why not simply allow them to talk in German? Were the producers really that worried that the film would lose potential viewers in case of subtitles? Of course, there are a lot more issues than that. The screenplay is as incoherent and derivative as can be and literally ALL the main characters are insupportable. Certain of them are even downright bizarre, like that guy named Eugene, for example … Why is he such a weirdo and how come he even has acquaintances to begin with? The story centers on Robert returning to his rural hometown, along with two of his college buddies, to arrange some formalities after the death of his grandfather. Supposedly he died of Alzheimer's disease, but granddaddy was really a retired scientist and still secretly experimented with possible cures for the bird flu epidemic. During one of these experiments, the birds carrying the virus attacked him and escaped into the countryside. Not long after Robert's arrival, more and more villagers become infected with a much harsher form of the virus; turning them into slowly rotting but nevertheless still hungry zombies. Robert and his friends are locked inside the isolated mansion, just when they're throwing a party with two sexy chicks they met in a gas station! Bummer!! "Virus Undead" is completely devoid of tension and atmosphere, and you literally don't care if any of the characters survives the ordeal not. The zombie make-up effects and splatter are definitely not the worst I've ever seen, but the film doesn't contain any truly memorable gory parts, neither. As said, the dialogs and acting performances are horrible. In fact, the only remotely acceptable reason to be interested in "Virus Undead" is the astounding rack of supportive actress Anna Breuer …
