This little film was able to capture something that many, many horror films haven't been able to capture since the late 80s/early 90s - it's so bad, it's good.
Nowadays in the horror genre, many aspiring young filmmakers make a conscious effort to make their film "so bad, it's good", but fail miserably. This film achieves this because it's genuine. The same reason so many campy horror films of the 80s were able to achieve this, they 1.) didn't take the film too seriously, and 2.) made a real effort to do their best without trying to make it so bad, it's good.
There are some just frightfully terrible scenes that will have you rolling, there's a fair amount of violence, the acting is atrocious, the script was just amazingly horrid. Put these together with a desire to make a decent "B" zombie film and you get magic.
It made me a bit nostalgic actually. If you're an old-school horror fanatic, you'll definitely find some entertainment value in this. Don't let your kids and teenagers watch terrible, pompous remakes of old Romero classics, let them see what we saw all those years ago - a genuine attempt to make a compelling zombie film that fails terribly due to a lack of money and talent in every category.
Seriously, this movie gets a 7/10 simply because it did what movies are initially intended to do - entertain.
