A gory blast from the past
27 January 2015 | by RautusSee all my reviews

The grindhouse zombie movie is back. Fans of the old school gory zombies movies of George A. Romero and the Italian zombie movies of the 80s will be beyond pleased to see that their lust for the gritty, blood filled, body shock horror with the undead and their victims are back and more violent than ever.

This movie is unapologetically gory, no holds barred, raw carnage on the screen with a great assemblage of iconic horror stars from the 80s such as Ted Vernon, star and producer of the 1988 cult classic "Scarecrows", along with Richard Vidan and Rod Sweitzer. It also includes a cameo by Claudio Fragasso, writer of the 1980 cult zombie movie "Hell of the Living Dead" and best known in his directorial work for the 1990 best worst movie ever made "Troll 2"

For fans of old school, cult horror, this is a dream come true, and like the tag line says, it clearly is "The Expendables of horror"

The Russian setting and cinematography gives the film a really creepy, eerie and moody atmosphere, the use of a digital camera gels well to create a disturbing and unsettling zombie apocalypse which feels realistic, almost like a documentary filming the event.

Writer and director Alex Wesley shows that he is a great talent in the making, he handles the film well on such a low budget. He has a love for the genre and a passion for movie making, he had to sell his own apartment to gather enough money to make the film, that's what you call dedication to your art. The gore is outstanding, he's made such realistic, brutal and repulsive violence with very little money while other filmmakers with a higher budget have created gore which feels incredibly fake. There is not one drop of CGI in this movie which makes this film feel refreshingly retro and old school, the gore feels real because it was filmed on the spot, using good old practical effects to create the illusion of realism. There is one particular gore sequence in this film that stands out and will certainly become an iconic scene.

Don't go in expecting a big budget zombie movie like "World War Z" and instead be ready to witness good old fashioned zombie bloodshed with amazing practical effects, a great cast and made by a talented director with a lot of passion for the genre. "Zombie Infection" is a love letter to old school zombie movies, made by a fan for the fans, and should not be missed. And compared to other low budget zombie movies, this one stands above them. This could become a deserving cult classic.

I can imagine if Alex Wesley was given a bigger budget, he could create a movie that would push the boundaries of ultra violence and horror to the next level. He's an upcoming director to absolutely look out for.

To purchase "Zombie Infection", you can buy it from distributor David Sterling:
