This movie can be briefly summarized in one sentence: Lionsgate's attempt to capitalize on the increasing popularity of the "zombie" genre.

Viewers be warned: This is NOT a zombie movie!! In the horror genre, it is actually an OK movie. The acting was top-notch for the budget, and the special effects were tastefully done (while the nudity, unfortunately, was not). This movie would have won a 5 from me if not for one simple problem: The poster (and the DVD box art!) and plot synopsis of this movie (and subsequently, the genre it was defined as!) DO NOT match the plot AT ALL. It's almost like they didn't think anyone would notice! I sat down to this film hoping for another Romero-style zombie bloodbath; I left even more disappointed than I was at the new "Day of the Dead." And trust me, I was disappointed.
