A chief physician at a large metropolitan hospital is formulating a serum to resurrect recently deceased "patients".When his facility comes under inspection from the federal government, the doctor is forced to dispose of the "patients" as quick as possible even though they are in mid-experiment and he doesn't know if his serum even will work. With the help of the evil hospital operations manager, he manages to ditch the experiments in the neighboring swamplands. Little do they know, their serum works, the experiments rise to "life" and wreck havoc on a group of students conducting science experiments at the swamplands. With the help of a swamp hermit, a beautiful innocent bystander, a park ranger, and the police captain they try to piece together what has gone on... as well as survive!Written by
More fun than some of the reviews led me to believe
I'll admit, this movie was on "Prime", which I have mainly for shipping gifts, so it was essentially "free" for me. Or at least a bonus, so maybe I'm being easier on it than someone who paid for a DVD.
Don't get me wrong, it's not a masterpiece of high production values, but if you've ever wanted to see a Zombie Kung Fu movie, this is it. Some of the fight scenes fall a bit flat, but the ones that stand out are when the character doing the fighting doesn't look like an action hero, but still manages to know some out of the ordinary moves. It's unexpected and fun to see someone you're sure will be a one bite and they're done victim throwing kicks and punches like a pro.
I've noticed some other reviewers comment that black belts should be able to fight more convincingly. I'm sure that in real life they can, but on camera stunt fighting is actually very different from real fighting and much of how well it sells depends on the camera angle and rehearsals to build speed while keeping things safe. Overall, I thought most of the fight sequences were entertaining, if not entirely convincing.
The zombies were plentiful, the plot pretty straight forward, and the pace wasn't bad for a near two hour flick. I'll admit, however, that it did take me three sittings to finish this one. Mostly it was something I switched to when there was nothing else to do or watch.
Many people are correct that Jasmine St. Claire turned in one of the better performances of the movie and many of the cast members had moments when they seemed a bit lost in the dialogue, but that's to be expected of these micro budgeted features. Films like this are like community theatre. They're where aspiring pros cut their teeth and hobbyists play.
There are quite a few scenes when background noise is a distraction between cuts, but one of the big obstacles of no budget is not being able to control your surroundings. When you're shooting on a beach you couldn't afford to rent from the county for the day, if some guy wants to run a weed eater, you can't really stop him.
Like a few others who have commented here in the past, I'd love to see that missing hour of footage.
