The part where the 2 people join Birdy in the basement, the man brings a heavy trunk to the top of the stairs as if to block the door from opening, but the door opened outwards from the basement. Unless he meant to trip a zombie, it wouldn't do anything to help keep the zombies out. See more »

Zombie Night: Meh!
Made a full decade after Zombie Night (2003) which I'd consider one of the worst zombie movies ever made, the title is recycled and we're presented with another zombie piece.
I was conflicted what to expect initially, it's a Scyfy original and I actually think the Scyfy channel do horror quite well. However on the flipside it's made by the rather infamous The Asylum and they seldom make anything even remotely watchable.
So a zombie outbreak occurs, a town becomes panicked and crazed and we follow a group of survivors of whom you'll recognise quite a few.
Anthony Michael Hall, Daryl Hannah and Alan Ruck demonstrate here with their inclusion just how low their careers have sunk. Remember when Hannah was a prominent Hollywood star? Those days are well behind her.
Directed by horror legend Clu Gulagers son he does a decent enough job here in fact the whole thing has clear influences from both Romero and the Return of the Living Dead series (And in competent fashion).
It feels like an old school zombie movie and though it staggers in the centre it is actually better than you'd expect all things considered.
However, zombies have certain "Rules" present in their lore and here they decided to tweak a couple and that damages the movie more than I can express here.
Zombie Night would have been a passable affair if the writer hadn't decided to go into business for himself.
Old school zombie movie
Some poor music choices
Zombie "Rules" changed
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
During the zombie apocalypse the police need to be vigilant with looters
Little known fact, zombies enjoy playing fetch
Warning: Parked cars can randomly explode for absolutely no reason
