Trust me ... you've seen this before
17 May 2013 | by (Winnipeg, Canada) – See all my reviews

You know the drill. It's a small town somewhere in the U.S. One day, folks start acting crazy. People who look … dead perhaps … start attacking people. All attempts to fight them off fail. It's almost as if they were zombies or something.

That's right … it's another zombie film. All your standard bases are covered here. There's a government agency quarantining the town. They, of course, cannot successfully fight off the zombies, mostly because they keep forgetting to shoot them in the head. We have a group of survivors, some of whom know each other, some who are strangers, who lock themselves in an enclosed space (a movie theatre) to get away from the zombies. One of them has already been bitten by a zombie … I wonder what will happen to him? As you've probably surmised, this film is a by-the-numbers zombie flick. It's so by-the-numbers that it hits all the broad plot points without bothering to fill in the details. We see an unspecified government agency performing experiments that cause the zombie outbreak, but we never find out what this experiment is or how it might cause people to become zombies. We get no details about how this outbreak occurs. We see nobody become zombies. We don't know how people become zombies. Zombies just appear out of nowhere as needed in whatever size crowd the movie requires.

Essentially, it's impossible to have much of a stake in what happens in this movie. With the exception of one creative plot twist during a climactic action sequence, you've seen all of this before and you've seen it done much better. At best, it's a mildly inoffensive time waster.
