An archaeology professor discovers an ancient crypt which contains living dead corpses. The zombies go on a rampage and attack a group of people which the professor had invited to celebrate his discovery.
When a terrorist's body, infected with a stolen chemical, is recovered by the US military, the corpse is cremated, unintentionally releasing the virus/bacteria into the atmosphere over a small island. Soon the infected populace mutate into flesh-hungry zombies, and a trio of soldiers on leave must team up with a group of tourists and board themselves up in an abandoned hotel as they try to fend off the agile and aggressive living dead.Written by
Blue Heart's supposed radio set list (briefly seen in the shot where his sunglasses are sitting on the desk in front of him) is in fact just a piece of printed paper with only "Play Beatles Song" written on it in red pen. See more »

I didn't expect a great film when I watched this effort. What I was hoping for, was that Italian macabre atmosphere sometimes present in this genre. Unfortunately, there's rarely any sign of it. One or two scenes show some promise, only to be let down by mediocre cinematography, a dull soundtrack and the need for the main characters to clumsily roll (in pretend G.I. style) around the slow approach of the undead. The action choreography really is pretty bad. It's like watching grown adults play "soldiers." Unfortunately, they wouldn't stand a chance in a real school playground. There's a fair amount of gore, but for those who feel that gore alone is not enough and want some of that nasty atmosphere that is present in so many Fulci, Argento, Bava and Lenzi films, there may be some disappointment. I would have to rate this film 4/10. I wanted to be doing something else while it was running, but did not switch it off, so I gave it a bonus point (included).
