Not suitable for even the most die hard zombie aficionado
2 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

No Budget. No Plot. No gore. No suspense. No Comedy. No point.

This 'movie' is really nothing more than a 75 minute collection of the directors friends appearing on camera for no other reason than to have their name attached to a movie.

I watch many zombie movies, most of which have a budget of a high school party weekend (at best) and while those are bad.. this is worse.

There is no plot at all. The movie basically is a collection of scenes of actors/actresses that simply are thrown into the movie for no purpose other then to have a scene in the movie.

Basically take random scenes from random (extremely)low budget zombie flicks put them together and you have this movie.

If there is anything that can be said to be tolerable with this 'movie' it is that the director tried to keep it interesting with the occasional breast show or otherwise scantily clad woman scene. But it isn't even close to worth it.

If you are contemplating watching this, take a look at my watched movie list - http://www.imdb.com/mymovies/list?l=37512911 - and you will see 130+ zombie movies and this one is possibly the very worst of all the ones I've seen.

Save yourself the 75 minutes... seriously.
