Just plain awful
28 October 2012 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

But then again, what does one expect from Asylum.

It's just as easy to make a good film as a bad one, but it's obvious the people at Asylum just don't care to even TRY to make a good movie.

I admit - I fast forwarded through this entire movie, which was the only way possible to view this crap.

there was no story; no character development; no plot really to speak of. the filmmakers just came up with excuses to move their characters from one zombie attack to the next, stealing ideas and plot elements from Dawn of the Dead, The Walking Dead, World War Z etc....

in some scenes, the zombies lumbered, in others they ran - huh? And who knew that Zombies could swim?!? the scene with the zombies climbing up the bridge was totally ridiculous and just an excuse to show some 'nifty' f/x. by the way - they weren't.

The actors involved should be embarrassed by their participation and I can only hope they were well paid for their efforts in this pile of smelly manure.
