I purchased this movie from Amazon, where it was titled "Space of the Dead". With a title such as that, it surely lured in a zombie aficionado such as myself. But I must admit that I didn't have any high expectations for the movie.
However, I will say that the movie wasn't as bad as it could have been. Sure, this is not a great movie by any standards. And as for a zombie movie, then it was not even nowhere near being impressive or memorable at all. But still, the passion of the creative force behind this movie was showing on the screen, and that helped lift up the movie somewhat.
The acting in "Plaguers" was as to be expected for a movie such as this. So don't get your hopes up here, because this is as far from being a Shakespearian experience as can be.
The special effects in the movie were adequate, given the budget and production value of the movie. The special effects served their purpose well enough, although it sort of feel like you are watching a Sci-Fi horror movie from the mid- to late-Eightees.
I didn't really understand why director Brad Sykes opted to have the rescued marooned personnel be all women. Perhaps for the sake of eye candy and a selling point to the male audience? I can only guess, but it didn't really make much sense.
All in all then "Plaguers" is not a memorable movie, and it isn't the most entertaining of movies in this particular genre.
I am rating "Plaguers" three out of ten stars. And I can honestly say that I am not going to be watching this movie a second time, because it just doesn't have enough contents to sustain more than a single viewing.
