Storyline

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 Scott Lister

User Reviews

An okay sequel!
2 January 2004 | by willywantsSee all my reviews

Terrorists steal a nerve toxin from a secret military base, which accidently gets into a city's water supply, turning the inhabitants into cannibal zombies. Meanwhile, a trio of soldiers on leave help a group of teens stranded in the outskirts of town fend off the zombies. A DJ at the town's only working radio station provides philosophical commentary. Granted, this is FAR from being as good as Lucio Fluci's "The Beyond", "The gates of hell", "Voices from the deep" or the original "Zombie" film, but their is plenty of gore and the blood flows freely. That was pleasing enough for me. 5.5/10.
