For Asylum it's best picture worthy.
16 March 2021 | by amesmondeSee all my reviews

A team of soldiers are sent to an island where a reclusive doctor has been working on a deadly virus programme, soon they find themselves fighting off a horde of zombies for survival.

For an Asylum production this is an above average offering from director Nick Lysons. Thankfully it's played serious and benefits from an on location shoot rather than cheap sets. The zombie make-up holds up for the budget. Christopher Cano and Chris Ridenhour score compliments the great cinematography by Laura Beth Lov. This is where Lyon's and crew shine. If nothing else Isle of the Dead looks fantastic.

It features enhanced zombies with plenty of head shots, blood and a nice amount of gore. It's a pity the overuse of CGI takes you out some moments. Writers Jacob Cooney and Brandon Trenz screenplay is at times overtly talky, borrowing dialogue from better films.

The cast are a mixed bag. Notable is Maryse Mizanin with an accent to die for as Mikaela Usylvich who has some memorable moments. D.C. Douglas as Colonel Aiden Wexle echoes Day of the Dead's Richard LibertyLogan, while channeling William Shatner.

Overall, it's yet another addition to an already saturated genre, but in its league it's one of the better additions. For Asylum, it's Best Picture and Director worthy.
