The former government agent Hunter comes to the bank and tells that the vampire zombies had been contaminated by an experimental virus developed by the government through the subjects that have escaped from the laboratory, attacking people in the New Moon to feed themselves.

The Wrath Of KANE
29 August 2007 | by crowdkillerSee all my reviews

O.k so normally I avoid straight to DVD horrors like the plague (I love the old school cheapo video stuff but this shot on video garbage we see today is really nauseating) unless instructed to do otherwise by a trusted source of info. After reading the synopsis I was intrigued I'm a huge fan of zombie cinema (I know there not strictly "stenches" but you've got to take what you get these days) and also a hip-hop head so seeing Big Daddy Kane and E-Fonzarelli in the cast led me to take a risk and watch this film. I must say I was pleasantly surprised, with a little more financial backing and solid acting this could have done the rounds at cinemas everywhere especially after the strong showing of films such as the Dawn remake and more recently 28 weeks later. Big Daddy Kane was a pleasure to watch as the hunter, while Kanes no Brando he glides along on the charisma hes's shown since his rap heyday. The plot is tight and original the blending of genres here mesh well although heist films and zombie films often take on a siege setting so it isn't much of a stretch. The acting is decent and the direction although derivative is of a certain standard. The only real let down of the film is the special effects and make up it's really bog standard and the final scene is really let down by this. The films run time is only around 75 mins so it rarely has the chance to slow down and begin to annoy.

All in all it was a good effort all round maybe 6 is too generous of a rating seeing as some classic films fail to hit that mark on the IMDb but it's early in the A.M i'm tired but happy so what the hell. Long Live The KANE
