Sandra Louise Douglas,
Billions are dead and the few that are left start to realize they are not alone. Initially when the dead begin to rise, they are not very threatening. However, in a short period of time, the lurching bodies begin to get their most basic senses back and this makes them much more dangerous. When the dead become attracted to light and sound, the survivors have no option but to live in silent darkness. Written by
This movie was utter crap from start to finish - no exaggeration.
There were at least a dozen prolonged scenes where I had little idea what was happening (I mean it, I couldn't even guess what the director was trying to show). There were disjoint images or sounds thrown into some scenes, seemingly to lend some emotion or atmosphere to the story, but it confused the heck out of me.
I LOVE this kind of story - global disaster strikes mankind, and a handful of survivors are left to pick up the pieces. I really dig the philosophical questions that get raised (and sometimes answered), and the strategies that the survivors come up with to continue living.
However, this movie had little of that - the story line, the characters, the script, the cinematography, the sound (seemingly recorded on one of those toy Mickey Mouse microphones) ... all of it was so glaringly cheap or badly done as to cause actual embarrassment in anyone watching it.
What can I say that is good about this movie? Well, there were a few moments when I thought it was actually going to pull through for me - the monster effects were really good in some scenes, and ... well, that's it really.
Don't watch this movie. Honestly, it really ISN'T one of those low budget movies that a minority appreciates in spite of the majority. It's just a waste of time.
