A military scientist trying to learn more about a strange alien virus moves into a run-down suburban apartment complex to study it, but when it gets released upon the inhabitants and turns them into flesh-devouring zombies, he races to stop them before they can escape the building into the city.
Not all that bad at all, and actually a fairly decent effort in it's own right, helped along by a fairly novel idea of letting the zombie reanimation come from an alien organism rather than anything else and in a sense possessing the victim to continue living so that they can learn about the human race, but only by consuming the flesh of their victims. Pretty unique, as well as the method of disposing of the creatures, which is pretty original and clever and allows for some good times later on. They look pretty good as well and manage to get in some pretty gory stuff here and there, although their behavior of mimicking the infected (i.e.: running zombies) is terribly handled. Plus, it waits far too long to get going with it's life-is-hard-in-the-projects opening that holds off the zombie mayhem, but overall its not that bad.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity, a mild sex scene and drug use
