Trivia

The spotlight was expensive to rent and was thus only used for one night of shooting. It should be visible at the beginning and end of the film and when the military arrives, but isn't. See more »

Goofs

During the confrontation between Tori, Tom and Cindy in the kitchen, a piece of green tape is visible on the shotgun, just above the trigger housing. After the camera cuts from Tom to Toni, the tape is gone. See more »

Meandering, lifeless, and without any bite
21 December 2011 | by jet66See all my reviews

Though not the worst zombie movie ever made, "Steve Nile's Remains" disappoints and bores. For one thing, if a creative's name appears in the title, he or she should earn that place in the marquee with a script that goes somewhere. Sadly, neither the story, nor the characters in it do much more than shuffle around, running away from zombies.

Worse, one doesn't really care what happens to the people left alive in the zombie apocalypse. They're largely uninteresting at best, awful and selfish at worst. Even if the script had given them rich personalities, the actors are unconvincing and often wooden (especially Evalena Marie). The directing is methodical and the camera work uninspired.

The plot is, in essence, DAWN OF THE DEAD in a hotel. It's largely influenced by (if not derivative of) Steven King's FIRESTARTER and THE STAND, as well as Justin Cronen's book _The Passage_. About the only innovative aspect of this of this movie is who survives. But really, by the end, you just won't care.

Watch it if you're folding laundry. Or really loaded.
