Trivia

The warehouse in which the four survivors are holed up is called 'Clay's', the same surname as the writer/director. See more »

Goofs

When the Zombie is shot trying to get upstairs in the warehouse towards the end of the film, it slumps in to a sitting position with its back against the door. In the proceeding shots, it is laying on its front, through the doorway. There is also no sign of a bullet wound on the back of the head. See more »

Romerish with a dash of Snyder.
4 October 2013 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

The opening scenes are tense and consume your attention, not the equal of Snyder's opening in Dawn of the Dead but then what is. State of Emergency is among the very best zombie/infected style movies I've seen but fair warning this is not your typical zombie film. There is little gore, little violence, and no hordes of undead. The story is a twist on the often done pressure cooker situation where you have a variety of people thrown together under extreme circumstances that can't leave but can't work together. In State of Emergency you have a bunch of nice people who get along, share, and work as a team. As viewers we have the luxury of 20/20 foresight and there are moments where the characters could have made better decisions but they never don't act unrealistically stupid. In the heat of the moment, with adrenaline pumping and your life in the balance, when flight is easier than fight, who will make the right decision every time? A chemical plant goes boom and has disastrous effects on the population of a small town. Town folk go insane and attack their neighbors, even eating them. A few individuals are unaffected and hole up and await military search and rescue teams. Romero created zombies, Snyder created fast zombies, and now Turner Clay has added a trait that allows them to fool even wary survivors. But will the good nature of the cast ultimately work against them and what does happen if the military finds them? State of Emergency is full of twists that aren't really twists, I would call it realism.
