In a small, remote village in upstate Quebec, things have changed. Locals are not the same anymore - their bodies are breaking down and they have turned against their loved ones. A handful of survivors goes hiding into the woods, looking for others like them.

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.

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.
