A new low for Ted. V Mikels and that's saying something.
15 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dead Country is about a alien that lands on earth and spreads a deadly virus that turns the town of Romero (get it).

The only thing of note about this film is the genre names associated to this. William Malone, Ted V. Mikels, Lloyd Kaufman and Lisa Wilcox.

There really is no plot to speak of, just a lot of unrelated scenes. So that people can say that they have had some screen time.

One thing that was really irritating was the fact that there were vast swathes of this film with no dialogue. Now I do not mean that this was silent film. In a lot of sections there is background music and incidental sounds coming from the speakers. The characters are actually talking, but not sound can be heard. It was like the film makers did not have time to post sync the dubbing onto the completed film. This is not a problem throughout all of the film, so why just a large portion?

There is some gore, but really not enough to warrant a view.
