Storyline

This is it. What humanity feared the most is already happening, as a virulent pandemic sweeps the globe from end to end like a pitiless scourge, leaving behind legions of freshly-animated decomposing zombies. Under those circumstances, in the carcass of a levelled Las Vegas, a totally unprepared exotic dancer, Molly, crosses the rugged terrain of the unforgiving desert, driven solely by the will to survive, and a motive even greater than her own life. However, she's not alone. Like a powerful flesh-magnet, Molly attracts a ferocious undead male who is craving for a bite of those fragrant and bright-red offals of hers--and wherever Molly goes, the walking dead predator follows. In the end, do zombies ever get tired? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

The silver military jet in the airport hangar scene (Wendover Airport Utah) is under restoration. It is currently configured as a North American F-86L model but was originally built as a North American F-86D model in Inglewood CA in 1953. After acceptance by the USAF, it was transferred to the 465 Fighter Interceptor Squadron at McChord AFB in Washington (state). See more »

Goofs

The rifle that Jimmy shoots at Mollie while standing on the airport control tower is a "Break Barrel" pellet gun, not a real firearm rifle. Look closely at the fore end of the wood stock and you can see a hinge mechanism which allows the barrel to be moved downward which compresses the internal spring and piston and also exposing the chamber where the pellet is loaded by hand.

The Best Independent Drama/Thriller/Zombie Film I've Seen
30 July 2017 | by tdwillis-26273See all my reviews

To try and quench my zombie appetite I have watched MANY MANY...and I mean MAAANY zombie movies, and many of them are pretty dang bad.

This is not one of them.

Although not academy award level in any aspect, I would consider this deserving of awards in the independent and lower budget arenas!

If reviewers and viewers pay attention you will notice that this movie is labeled a Drama, Horror, Thriller. I believe that's accurate. For hard core zombie fans who like strict zombie action, I can see why some would be disappointed. I was not. And in fact I was quite pleasantly captivated. This was a breath of fresh air for this tired, same ole same ole, genera. I finally found a zombie movie that had some MEANING to it. Where the main character was believable and multi dimensional. I loved the humor inter mixed thru out!

The camera work was EXCELLENT. The acting and direction was very very good. And the story was full and different with the pace set at a nice steady burn. After about 45 minutes the pace does pick up with some new characters introduced and some nice surprises!

After reading my review, you can tell whether or not this film may interest you. If you are on the fence...let me push you off. I thought it was an excellent film.
