A borefest, instead of a gorefest.
25 March 2011 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

Of course I wasn't expecting much good from this movie but I still didn't expected it to be as horrible as it turned out to be.

Basically everything about this movie disappoints. It's an obvious cheaply made and fast put together, that fails to impress or even entertain. You would at least expect from a zombie movie that it's being somewhat remotely entertaining and features some decent gore as well. But no, for the fans of the genre there are hardly any redeeming qualities in this movie.

It's not really a movie in which an awful lot is happening. It's one of those horror movies that is being set at mostly just one location (for budget reasons obviously) and you're constantly waiting for the movie to finally start to take off. It's not because of the lacking script that not anything or interesting is ever happening but also really due to the lacking directing from debuting James Cummins. This guy doesn't know when to say 'cut' it seems. Some sequences needlessly drag on and take away any of the movie its effects that it potentially still could have had.

I started to loose interest in this movie really fast. It also didn't had any really compelling or interesting character in it, that you could feel for. Not even the zombie/horror moments could spice up things, mainly because there were far too few moments like that and half of the time I couldn't even understand what was happening on the screen. I also still don't understand what its story was all about and how some of the corpses came back to live but perhaps I simply wasn't paying attention enough, since the movie failed to keep me interested.

What makes the movie all the more annoying and bad to watch is its acting. The movie stars a whole bunch of people that only starred in an handful of movies and never made it big time, with the exception of some of the supporting characters. Of course a lot of their lacking acting performances can be brought back to its bad writing but I also doubt a the same time they would had pulled things off any better with a different script.

But if I have to mention one good things about this movie I would be the puppets. I liked that they mostly went with this approach, rather than using just make-up effects. Puppets can often be creepy looking, far more so than any make-up or computer effects can ever achieve.

A movie that really isn't worth your time.

3/10
