Anyone that has been with us for a while knows that if a production is disappointing, unsatisfactory or simply mundane, I will share that with you as it is my duty to scrutinize and delineate any and all films, be them good or harrowing. And truth be told, when I heard of another zombie motion picture by Nu Boyana Film Studios and Lionsgate I felt an immense lack of enthusiasm toward the potential, and in fact expected hour and a half of unoriginal storyline, financed stunt work and second grade effects. Though, in hindsight, and simply based on the fact that this film is directed by the "Phenomenon of Fright" himself Hèctor Hernández Vicens I should have been at least somewhat unperturbed. As the saying goes, you can never judge a book by its cover and my goodness is that clear to me now. Never in all my experience have I encountered content below the ten million Dollar budget mark of this caliber. The makeup was on par with The Walking Dead, the storyline is in fact exceedingly original and is premised around a series of ultra secret military testing that go horribly wrong and inadvertently inseminate the very air they breath thus transforming them into man eating zombies. That said, what is most unique about this particle invasion is that it renders “The Dead” somewhat capable of still thinking for themselves. Typically speaking I actually find zombies quite boring and humorous since they move so slowly and completely lack the ability to engage intellectually. That though, is what makes this breed so chillingly horrific, that they can actually think, plan and structure their attacks at a human level. Additionally, what I thoroughly enjoyed, is the casting, the new faces and fresh new talent, it is the first time I had the pleasure of basking away to a flick featuring the likes of Luke Cousins and the gorgeous Rachel O'Meara and I must say I was pleasantly surprised and taken aback at their high level of on screen presence and professionalism. Brilliantly put together by Mark Tonderai and Lars Jacobson and of the best zombie films I have ever watched!
