Storyline

Lieutenant Brian Murphy, is the sole survivor of the final plane out of Africa, which crashes somewhere off the coast of West Africa. The night before, a zombie horde attacked many villages in that area. Brian gathers supplies from the plane crash and travels by foot until he finds and fixes a broken-down truck in a village. When driving, the truck gets stuck in a pothole as zombies get closer. Daniel Dembele, a local African soldier gone AWOL in search of his son, rescues Brian from certain death. Daniel's wife had been killed in a zombie attack the previous night and a local military unit, heading north to a military base, had rescued his son. Daniel agrees to lead Brian to the nearest airport, a day's drive away, in exchange for his truck upon arrival for Daniel to use to find his son. At the airport, Brian attempts radioing for help using the air traffic tower's radio, but he receives no response. Daniel gets fuel for the truck and the two agree it would be best to stick together ... Written by Jess Robertson

Wow surprising good movie
21 September 2011 | by demonhunter5110See all my reviews

I am always skeptical when I see movies that I've never heard of. The actors, Director etc. But I have to say that this film was very well done.The Howard Bros did an excellent job. Directed beautifully for a low really low budget film. Special effects were surprisingly quite good. Much better than some higher budget films.It has its share of problems but is easily overlooked. I highly recommend this for any zombie fan. It stays true to the classic zombie flick but gives you a bit of a new perspective. I hope to see more Howard Bros films on a higher budget cause they deserve it after this one. This is just to fill on for the retarded 10 line requirement. No offense IMDb but it is kinds stupid.
