Storyline

More than a year after the events of Meat Market, the few survivors, Argenta, Nemesis, and others, struggle for survival against the undead in the ruins of what was once society. In their search for a safe haven they come across what appears to be the last refuge of humanity - a fortified compound run by former motivational speaker Bill Wilhelm and his cult of heavily armed fanatics. But when Argenta is subjected to indoctrination techniques and her comrades imprisoned, she begins to suspect that deep within the compound, more is going on than a simple attempt to rebuild...that Bill and his followers have more than one use for the living and the undead alike...

More than a year after the events of Meat Market, the few survivors, Argenta, Nemesis, and others, struggle for survival against the undead in the ruins of what was once society. In their search for a safe haven they come across what appears to be the last refuge of humanity - a fortified compound run by former motivational speaker Bill Wilhelm and his cult of heavily armed fanatics. But when Argenta is subjected to indoctrination techniques and her comrades imprisoned, she begins to suspect that deep within the compound, more is going on than a simple attempt to rebuild...that Bill and his followers have more than one use for the living and the undead alike...a low budget 28 days later anyone?

The gore was simply the main attraction for this movie. Judging by those standards....it was only a little above average. The gore includes: arrows in the head, blown up heads, head slicing, skinned bodies, gun shots, bit fingers, GROSS insects, and tons of flesh eating! The effects are nice looking for the budget, but I would have liked to see a little bit more. I think they did the best with what they had.

The sets were impressive for a really low budget. I'm not too sure how Clement pulled all of that together. At times the audio was shifty which got a little distracting. The main attraction was the sound effects...utterly NASTY...they went all out with the squishy noises. The editing had its ups and downs also. The best editing were the dream sequences..there was some slow/fast motion and quick edits that were done really professionally. On the other hand simple cut edits were off at places that really bothered me and hurt the acting even more.

This movie seemed to be put together by people who knew one another. Therefore, there are not real actors involved. That being said, they were still extremely average at best. The two leading girls could use a little work on the acting skills. Claire Westby has the lead but she also helps Clement produce it looks like. I think she's actually got some potential. Alison Therriault is really pretty too and actually does a half way decent job. Rob Nesbitt played the dictator well...I think he was actually the best actor...I'm not sure why I liked him so much. As much good as I've said...the acting doesn't really flow at all.

Final Thoughts: The gore was the main attraction to the film, and it was pretty impressive with the budget. Brian Clement's direction and make-up skills appealed to me quite a bit. This came out in 2001 and had a VERY similar premise to 28 days later...pretty original!
