A week before Christmas, a viral outbreak turns the citizens of Los Angeles into the walking dead. With characters named Santa Zombie, Raccoon, Fingers and Little Daddy, who can resist this horrific holiday gift.
Awakening is yet another zombie movie that makes me wonder what its intention was supposed to be. You got the typical "people lost in zombietown" story with 2 gangs trying to survive and building themselves shelter from the zombies who strangely only come out at night. To make it more ridiculous they don't join forces but kind of fight each other which didn't make any sense to me like many other parts of this movie didn't. Many things in this movie are just thrown in the pot and stirred without any logical explanation... best example of the trashy script are the ridiculous sex scenes thrown in with some booby shots all in one passage. The zombies are standard, the gore is minimal, the acting is substandard and the sound of the movie in dialogs is bad. After all it could have been a typical trash-fest with some humor (like the ghettoboy with his cool slangtalk) and zombiegore. Unfortunately the staff couldn't decide which way to go and bored a long way along the road to end up nowhere pretty much. The first ending is as idiotic as in movies like "Stink of flesh" ... meaning it doesn't have an ending. And the added rapture scene is pretty funny, yet thrown into the movie like everything else. There's too many better or at least entertaining in a trashy way movies than this one, so better avoid Awakening.
