A fairly boring and mundane zombie movie...
14 January 2020 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Of course I was compelled to sit down and watch the 2018 movie "Dead Squad: Temple of the Undead" because it is a zombie movie. Anything zombiesque, and I am there.

However, I hadn't even heard about this movie prior to finding it, so I didn't really know what to expect. However, the tendency of such unknown zombie movies tend to be bad. But still, I sat down to watch this movie from writers Dominik Hauser and Nancy Thornhill.

Well, turns out that I might as well just have skipped the movie and found something better to watch. While this was a zombie movie, of sorts, then it was hardly an entertaining movie. And it most definitely wasn't a movie that brought anything new to the zombie genre.

The storyline started out fairly okay and had some interesting enough things to present to the audience. But then as the young protagonists came to the old temple in the forest, everything just fell to the ground and the movie slipped so far down a slippery slope that it never had a snowball's chance in Hell of getting back on track.

The acting in the movie was adequate. Well, you must take into consideration the severe limitations imposed on the acting talents by the lack of a proper script and storyline.

The zombie make-up and special effects were adequate. Sure, this wasn't among the top of the line, but there are far worse special effects seen in zombie movies on the market. So that, at least, counted for something. However, it just wasn't enough to make up for all the other shortcomings that the movie had.

I am rating "Dead Squad: Temple of the Undead" a mere three out of ten stars, because the movie failed to entertain or captivate and hold my attention, despite of it being a zombie movie.
