Well, I liked it.
29 July 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

If you're like me and can enjoy a drama that injects horror motifs, I think you might like this movie. Otherwise, it's probably going to be too talkative, with disappointing amounts of gore. To some extent, I might compare it to Dawn of the Dead (1978), my personal favorite of Romero's zombie saga (and one of my favorite movies ever). It's not nearly as good, but it has a lot of similarities: left-leaning political message, sparing use of zombies, more emphasis on human drama than gore, and a very raw, low budget look. Compare this to the Dawn remake, which streamlined away just about everything but the zombies and gore. If you're more a fan of the original than the remake, maybe you'll find something to like here. The big problem is that, despite how heavy-handed Romero's political and social commentary are, this movie is even more preachy and less subtle, with characters outright lecturing each other. Also, the gore is very low budget, looking a bit unimpressive. I've seen Troma movies that looked like they had a bigger budget than this movie. Still, if you can get past the faults, and you can withstand some preachy commentary, I think you might like this movie.

The plot revolves around a Voodoo priestess raising a zombie horde from poor (and probably illegal) immigrants -- people that nobody will ever miss. When a battered wife, who had consulted the Voodoo priestess, seeks help from a feminist reporter and a Marxist con man with a heart of gold, the zombies and the priestess seek to kill them all, to keep the operation quiet. If this sounds a bit confused, cluttered, preachy, and silly, then yeah, you'd be right... but it's still fun.

Admittedly, I'm being quite generous in giving it a 7/10, but the liberal political message resonated with me, and I liked the characters. The zombies were also somewhat creative, being an even mix of Haitian zombies and Romero ghouls, which might annoy some horror fans, who expect a movie to pick one style and stick with it. If you're looking for something higher budget, with good SFX and lots of gore, I'd suggest the Dawn of the Dead remake, instead of this. If you like this, you might also like Deadgirl, another rather talky, low budget drama that uses zombies and other horror motifs in order to deliver social criticism.
