Storyline

While illegally selling one canister of Trioxyin-5, Charlie Garrison is murdered by a zombie. His nephew Julian Garrison finds two canisters hidden in the attic of his house with his girlfriend Jenny and they ask their friend Cody to analyze and research the chemical product. Cody finds that the composition of the product is very similar to ecstasy and he processes the chemical, making a large quantity of a drug that he called "Z" to make money. Using the services of the local drug dealer, they sell "Z" in the college campus. In the Halloween, the DJ and Jenny's brother Jeremy organizes a rave party. Meanwhile, Julian, Jenny and Cody disclose that the drug transform the users in zombies, and with the support of two weird agents, they try to stop the distribution of "Z".

Good movie for what it's meant to be
17 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

Granted that none of the sequels compares to the original, this movie is quite good. Filmed in Romania, it has very good production values for a B-movie. The visuals are good, the effects are good, although it looks like some gore may have been edited out; the cast is so so. The re-recording has it's problems. The story worked for me: a college kid discovers tanks of the infamous trioxin at his dead uncles home. His buddies try it immediately to see if it makes them high and then start selling it as a drug. Meanwhile, two goofy Interpol agents are on the search for all trioxin tanks out there. There are a few funny moments, perhaps not as many as the producers intended. The gore effects are excellent, the main zombie that appears later in the movie looks great. Speaking of looking great, there are plenty of hot babes who don't mind getting topless. I guess it takes foreign filmmakers to bring back fun horror movies the way they're supposed to be: bloody, gory, fun, with hot naked chicks. If you're tired of PG-13 "horror" with no gore and no nudity, then this movie is worth checking out.
