Following a near-apocalyptic zombie outbreak, humans are once again in control. If an occasional rogue zombie finds its way into everyday life, it is quickly disposed of by the authorities. In this day and age, people know how to handle "Zee's". The latest craze is the Zombie Safari - Zafari - a chance to go out and shoot the undead in the wild. The ultimate blood sport experience, and for many the ultimate therapeutic revenge following the losses suffered during the outbreak. Little do the vacationers realize they're actually in a highly controlled environment, where the zombies are always kept at a safe shooting distance. Nothing is left to chance, nothing is unplanned. So far.Written by
Robert Firth, who portrays General Kenneth Varantoom, liked Steve Barker's eclectic style of clothing so much, the director actually let him wear it in the film. See more »
All of the new zombies on the island were heat-treated to artificially age them, which had the added effect of making them slow-moving. In the final scene with the newscaster, there are zombies running in out of the surf. See more »
A zombie pandemic that has claimed 2 billion lives is finally over, the remaining undead kept on an island where guests can pay to shoot the carefully restrained reanimated corpses with high-powered firearms. Unfortunately for the resort's latest visitors, the technology designed to keep them safe from harm goes on the blink, allowing the living dead to satisfy their hunger for human flesh once more.
Put simply, The Rezort is Jurassic Park with zombies. But director Steve Barker is no Spielberg, and his modest budget can only stretch so far, which means that the promising premise really isn't given the treatment it deserves. Barker doesn't do a terrible job given the circumstances, I suppose, keeping the pace going at a decent lick, but with limited gore, not enough scares, and a cast whose only 'star' is Dougray Scott (i.e., he's the only one I've heard of), this is ultimately just another in a long line of unexceptional zombie flicks.
