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 »
Seeing The Asylum was behind this movie as the intro credits came on the screen, I must admit that my level of expectation went from hopeful to next to none. But still, I decided to watch this movie because it is a zombie movie after all.
And now about 85 minutes later, I must admit that I was genuinely surprised here. And I can honestly say that this is without a doubt one of the better movies to make it from The Asylum's drawing board.
The story here, is much like most other zombie movies. A strange phenomena takes place world wide and the dead are returning to life to feast on the flesh of the living. There is no explanation why or how this is happening. A small group of survivors have to make it through the night, as the number of living dead continues to rise.
The storyline was good and well executed on the screen, which is a definite thumbs up to The Asylum. This is the way to go. And the zombies in the movie were actually quite good. Not like most other low budget movies where it is just people with their faces painted gray, splattered with some blood and having their clothing shredded here and there. The make-up department had actually gone all the way in here. And it was nice for a change.
The cast was doing a good job as well, and personally I was thrilled to have Darryl Hannah in a zombie movie. And she actually pulled her weight quite nicely here, despite being in a rather unfamiliar environment.
"Zombie Night" is good entertainment and fun to watch for everyone who enjoys the zombie genre.
The ending, with the sunrise and all, well... I didn't personally care much for that particular direction in the zombie mythology. But hey, the movie still worked out nicely.
I am giving "Zombie Night" 6 fingers up out of 10. I can't give anymore as zombies ate the remaining four.
