Storyline

In a world where a deadly zombie virus has infected mankind, a single cure has been found. The cure, a treatment called the "Return Protein" which stays the effects of the virus in its host. With injections every 36 hours, the "Returned" are able to live as though they were never bit, despite the virus still coursing through their veins. When it is discovered that the protein stock is running low, chaos hits the streets. Returned who run out of the protein turn to zombies and wreak havoc, protesters turn to murderers as they try to rid the streets of the returned, and right in the middle of it all are Alex and Kate. Kate a leading doctor in the field of zombie virus' and Alex a musician with a dark secret, he is a Returned. As death and fear run rampant, Alex's secret becomes known and his dosage runs low, he and Kate must fight for a chance to live before he becomes a zombie. Written by Uncork'd Entertainment

Great movie, new take on old zombie films
24 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I've seen this year.

Even if you do not normally care for "zombie flicks" this movie may appeal to you.

It is not filled with gore but does have enough intrigue and creepiness to keep the horror film fans happy.

The plot is very well thought out and clever.

It's a real novel and original movie.

Kudos to the actors for the superb job they did and the writer/director for making such an excellent movie.

Loved it!
