Consensus: This low-budget homage to the zombie genre borrows heavily from superior predecessors and revels in a pile of its own campiness -- neither original nor watchable enough to entertain.

I think the goal of this movie is to make a campy throwback movie that evokes the movies that the Sperig brothers loved growing up. It's like an Australian… More

I saw it a while ago and remember liking it. It started off silly, started aping John Woo from a style standpoint and just got outlandish and ridiculous. Not… More
