Editorial Reviews

Ashes follows Dr. Andrew Stanton (Charmed s Brian Krause) a brilliant, obsessive doctor working on a cure for AIDS. On the verge of a major breakthrough in his exhaustive research, the work has taken an obvious toll on both his work and personal life as he tries to ward off government interference and meddling hospital administrators. Stanton s troubles further multiply when Jesus, a comatose young boy suffering from an undiagnosed illness is left at the hospital front door. With the boy facing imminent death, Stanton elects to inject the boy with his experimental drug in hopes of gaining more time to in pursuit of a final diagnosis. Total chaos ensues as Stanton is bitten by the boy signaling the outbreak of a contagious and deadly virus. Stanton must now stop the infection before it destroys him and everyone he loves, and facing the cold reality that the cure is worse than the disease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dug it. May 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised at how well done and acted this movie turned out to be. I'm a huge Zombie/apocalyptic movie buff and this has been one of the most realistic in regards to understanding how the dead can comeback and live. It made me come away with actually believing that something like this could actually happen one day. It took a while for the "good" stuff to happen, but it was interesting to watch how this bacteria began to mutate and turn it's victims into mad raging killers. I seriously dug this enough to actually write this review. My only complaint and why it only gets four stars and not five is that it ended too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A RIDE! February 19, 2012
By menkey
Format:DVD
A smart thriller of a movie, this one traces the accidental creation of a mutating bacteria that turns people into blood-spewing (and spilling) killers. While the general concept is not new, the strength of this movie lies in the smart storytelling, lingering over character development, giving us reason to care for the characters long before all hell breaks loose, and focusing on the story behind the breakout of the bacterial plague. The characters feel like real people, with real lives, real problems. Although there are plenty of other killer virus/plague/zombie movies out there, none are as believably told as this. Definitely worth watching, and watching again.

2.0 out of 5 stars I HAVE PATIENTS December 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Dr. Andrew Stanton (Brian Krause) Is a confident and successful ER doctor. He is also working on a cure for AIDS. ( I smell Nobel.) He has a beautiful wife (Sierra Fisk) and daughter (Islay Vermillion) he needs to spend more time with. Just as when things are going his way, his life turn upside down as he accidentally creates a bacteria that makes people aggressive and is highly contagious.

Now I know this sounds like a great zombie-type film and it would have been if it hadn't taken up nearly the whole film to develop. As it was we had a slow moving drama/thriller with a touch of horror at the end that wasn't worth 60 minutes of character development.

Available on a 30 Horror Film Collection.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs. Sex and brief nudity (?).

Ashes is a middle of the road pre-plague/pre-zombie flick that requires an adult level of commitment and a genuine interest in Po-Ap, Zombie and Plague movies. It often feels like a SyFy movie with a plot that feels so often repeated, that most non-diehard Po-Ap viewers wont really commit nor give it a fair chance; that said, what plays out slowly, if given the chance is a brilliantly simple prequel to every zombie movie ever made.

Want to know how zombies came about? Want to know how all those scientist missed the "thing" that turned into the bigger "thing" ie plague that gave forth those zombies we all love? Want to understand how simple mistakes, oversights, narcissistic motivations and outright sloppiness led to mankind's downfall?.. Then this fairly simple, sometimes B movie soap opera grade take on the beginning of the end is your answer. This is the more realistic version of Contagion in that no one, no less everyone, does the right thing.. that is, self-sacrifice and uber altruism are mostly absent. Hollywoods usual way of making us have faith in the govt, trust in those that are appointed as our saviors and an overall hope that it will all work out are for the most part absent as well.

Ashes gives us a bare bones realistic take on why crap often goes wrong and how the cure for cancer (as in I'am Legend) or in this case the unsanctioned cure for AIDS can go wrong just as easily as it could go right. When it does go wrong, we have to hope that someone anyone will do the right thing for the betterment of the people versus the stroking of there own ego or the coverup of there mishaps.

MILD SPOILER..

..the end blew me away, because like i said in the beginning, i realized it slowly but nicely sets up every zombie, plague, TEOTWAWKI movie you have pretty much ever seen...

2.0 out of 5 stars Forgettable October 9, 2012
By Dennis
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It hasn't been that long since I rented this movie and I have already forgotten the thing. That might provide a clue as to how good a movie this is. I streamed it via Roku after paying Amazon for the privilege and though I think I paid less than $3.00 to rent it I still feel a bit ripped off.
I cannot recommend this movie in any way.

This movie was good. It is basically how the virus originated and was pretty interesting and would recommend if you are into zombie flixs but keep in mind this movie is primarily dialogue with very minimal action sequences.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Version of 28 Days Later September 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This could have been a really good sci-fi movie, but it attempts to be "Dawn of the Dead" at the end. And fails miserably. It's more watchable than the Sci-Fi network's wreck of the week, but not by much. Good actors hamstrung by an awful script. Actually, I may have to take that Sci-Fi statement back. At least you know what's going on, (and probably know the whole movie), within the first few minutes. This piece of dreck doesn't seem to know where it's going or what's it's all about until half way through this slog. Confused about the first 2 minutes of the film? Don't worry. It ties back in somewhere toward the end. Assuming you want to wait that long to find out. Even if it was free, you're better off re-watching "Night of the Living Dead". You'll feel dead after watching this crap.
