Did You Know?


On any given filming weekend the cast and crew could number as low as 10, to as high as 175. Because the cast and crew worked for free they were allowed to miss filming to take care of personal business, or prior commitments. On many occasions, Director Gary Ugarek and Producers Chris Kiros and Elias Dancey would be the only film crew the production had. See more »

Chris: I know, I just think we need a back-up plan is all.
Sean: What do you suggest?
Chris: The Marquee.
Sean: The Marquee?
Chris: Yeah the Marquee, you know the big fucking sign in the parking lot. Its 8 or 9 feet off the ground, we could climb up and be out of reach.
Sean: Well you better pray they can't jump or fly because otherwise we're screwed.

See...filmmakers can learn from mistakes
10 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I'm writing this solely because one of the very first reviews I ever did on IMDb was for this film's predecessor "Deadlands: The Rising" and it was an awful review. Seriously...it was terrible and I still stand by it. But redemption can be sweet (even if the person getting it doesn't care at all about the person giving it, as is surely the case here). Deadlands 2 is by no means a great movie, but it's certainly watchable and a HUGE step forward for the director. Yes, it's still a low budget zombie movie, but it's better in pretty much every aspect.

The plot is pretty straight forward for a zombie movie. Throw a few strangers into an enclosed space and watch them battle wits with the undead. A bit derivative, but it's leaps and bounds better than the last film. One pitfall avoided that many directors fall into that is avoided here is the desire to use tons of blood/gore. Don't get me wrong, I love gore. It's just that it can make a low budget film look cheap and cheesy. Hell, even the zombies looked 10 times better. In the last movie they were just regular folks with white grease paint on their faces and black around the eyes. Looking like rejects from a Misfits album cover is no way to make zombies.

All in all the movie is flawed and if you don't know it's a low budget flick you might be disappointed. I, however, was pleasantly surprised, knowing full well the horrors of the previous film (sorry guys, I still think it was just terrible).
