Somewhat disappointing but still decent zombie effort

Following a terrorist attack, the staff and student body of a Florida university find that a viral epidemic has spread across the campus and turning those unaffected into ravenous zombies forcing them to find a way to find a way to a potential vaccine through the hordes of creatures.

This was quite a disappointing if still decent low-budget zombie effort. When this one works, it's due to the rather intriguing storyline that puts far more weight on the discovery of a cure than anything else. Mainly because it focuses on the students at the university and how they're studying the effects of the virus, the way it goes from the first half of their normal life into being about the need for the cure. Being that the timeliness of actual events with the connection to actual biological conditions and terrorist actions following all the discussions about the online videos and biblical signs comes off really nicely here, and overall makes for a somewhat compelling storyline. Once it shifts into the big zombie action scenes, this one really picks up nicely with plenty of enjoyable battles and confrontations with the creatures from the initial swarming in the lobby to the ambush in the classroom and all the smaller run-ins throughout the hallways of the school give this one a really fun pacing during the middle section with a strong assortment of big battles. As well as these fun scenes, the finale in the bunker offers up a great conclusion here with a solid offering of a great way to battle the threat and generates some solid battling against the zombies on the whole. Alongside the fine zombie make-up, these here are what works for this one although there are a few flaws to the film. One of the main issues here is the somewhat obscure pacing that crops up in the film, as this one feels incredibly uneven here. The opening half takes a while to get going as there's a rather lengthy build-up of topical and political nonsense that ends up pushing the main attack back because of the initial set-up here, and then from there it's somewhat curious as to how the zombies actually show up with it turning into the endless series of confrontations that speed this one up rather nicely. However, at that point, it decides to slow down and offers a prolonged get-to-know-the-characters sequence that turns this into a much longer and dragged-out sequence that really doesn't do much for the film after that stellar series of action scenes. That slows this one down rather significantly as they end up relaxing and letting down their guard too much in that situation which ends up affecting the overall pace here. The other big issue here is the low budget on display, which does hinder this one considerably. The whole look of the college, the confined nature of the supposed apocalypse that never comes to fruition and the telling of great action rather than showing it all comes across here and doesn't really help the film all that much. Likewise, the fact that this is considerably light on gore for a zombie apocalypse is a big issue here and all-told really hold this one down.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence and Graphic Language.
