Seven months have passed since the dead took over. Many cities and states have been abandoned and left to die. Several self sufficient hunting groups have been established to take on the threat in a war aptly referred to as the 'War on Dead'. Jillian Hurst, a former news writer and amateur documentarian, has set out to make a pro-war propaganda film to support the W.O.D. She joins up with a pack of renegade hunters known infamously to North America as 'the deadheads'. The moral dynamics and hardships of fighting in a war against the undead are told from several different perspectives. Written by Anonymous

Too bad to be good...
27 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I watch a lot of zombie movies. Bad ones, good ones, TERRIBLE ones. Dead Genesis definitely falls under the terrible heading. First, I'll address the opening scene. Yes, it depicts a zombie mother eating her child. It is not as jarring as the filmmaker intended. Mainly, the child (and I don't like to pick on kids) is an atrocious actor. It was pretty cringe worthy. It looked like the kind of performance you'd expect from a couple of 12 year old's messing around with dad's video camera, not an actual movie that people pay to see. And, believe me, it's only down hill from there. The audio is horrendous. The acting, amateurish would be a compliment. The story, lame and derivative. The only thing that could have saved it would have been some over the top violence and tits 'n ass. Unfortunately for Dead Genesis, there is neither. As for the reviews praising the films "deep, philosophical story". I can only imagine those individuals have an invested interest in the production. Sucks to be them. Skip this piece of garbage. Go watch: Exit Humanity, Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead, The Horde or even the new season of Z- Nation is kind of promising. Don't waste your time with Dead Genesis. Thank me later...
