All hell breaks loose when the children of the world, who had mysteriously fallen into a coma, awaken ten years later possessing otherworldly powers to wage an unholy battle against all adults.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sigh October 25, 2006
What a great premise and start to the movie as most of the world's children fall into a coma. 10 years later, no children are born that don't fall into the same coma. The stock market crashes, riots, the world is uneasy. Then the children wake up and they are out for blood. Sounds great, and the children first waking up is really scary. Then the story just falls apart, and the ending is just stupid. Nothing is really explained, and you are left empty at the end. No real gore and average acting. Clive Barker's name is attached, but he certainly did not write this.

It's a pretty sad fact, but the association of Clive Barker with any film no longer guarantees quality; heck, it doesn't even guarantee sufficient gore these days. I've been a Barker fan since the very beginning of his career, but I'm not cutting him any slack on this one. No, he didn't write this film's dreadful screenplay or seemingly invest himself significantly in the project (officially, he's listed as a co-producer), but he darn well let these guys put his name in the title and took his share of the cut. The Clive Barker of old would never have let his name be associated with as bland, unoriginal, and boring a horror film as The Plague.

About the best thing I can say about the film is that I found it too boring to truly hate. Anyone but writers Hal Masonberg and Teal Minton could have done a little something with the premise, but it's certainly not original. It's just another variant on the old children take over the world motif. In this case, all the world's children under nine years of age suddenly fall into a coma (interrupted by two daily, synchronized seizure fits). Ten years later, they all suddenly awaken and go on a zombified rampage, leaving our heroes scrambling to stay alive, etc. It's like Twilight Zone meets Children of the Corn meets every zombie movie you've ever seen.

Our main character, Tom Russel (played by James Van Der Beek), wouldn't you know it, has just arrived back in town, and - surprise, surprise - his ex-wife Jean (Ivana Milecivec) just happens to be one of the nurses taking care of all the town's comatose teens when they suddenly awaken. Why we can't have a mindless zombie film without a romantic sub-plot is quite beyond me, but there you go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good To See Ya Again Clive!! July 6, 2006
By JBizzle
I was pretty surprised & wasn't expecting to like "The Plague". I'm a huge Clive Barker fan but knowing he was only on board as a producer still had me a little worried. Lots of times you'll see someone's name attached to something that had nothing else to do with the movie other than to sell it with there name. Well, I'm happy to say this wasn't the case here(or even if it was, the movies still good). While the movie has some what of a slow start (doesn't really get moving 'til probably 30 minutes in or so)you'll be glad you stuck around for the ride. Like most guys, I'm not the biggest Vanderbeak fan, not to say there's anything necessarily wrong with him, he just got his start on "Dawson's Creek"(not exactly the most manly show in the world). Anyway, I didn't mind him here at all, in fact all the acting was pretty well spot on with only one exception. Can everyone in Hollywood please make sure that "Blonde Over Acting Afro Guy" never ever gets to act ever again? This guy almost coulda ruined the movie. Just about every single scene is pretty gut wrenching to watch him in. There is a nice pay off though as he's brutalised & then killed well, making up for his annoying, whiney over acting. Anyway as far as the story goes, I'm never one to give away to much about the plot, but it goes something like this. The worlds (coulda just been this one little town, don't know I missed that) children all fall into a coma for a period of like a little over 10 years. When they awaken chaos ensues. Little did I know, THIS IS A ZOMBIE MOVIE!!! Now I'm sure some will say "these aren't real zombies cause they're not dead". Screw that cause they are, they're just not undead(as were the people in "28 Days"). Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars What a mess! Unbelievably bad.... February 25, 2008
I am posting this review just to warn people off of this film. I agree with the posters here who have panned this movie and I won't recount the plot. But, because I am a writer, I can say that I was amazed that anyone (anyone!) would have put up the money to make this movie. The script starts off well enough (in premise, if not in dialogue) but when the characters started talking (i.e., before the kids wake up) there were warning signs. Almost nothing said by anyone in this script is logical, reasonable, or noteworthy. I kept waiting for the characters to at least follow the stereotypes for this "kind" of movie. But, in almost every scene, the characters say nothing (they just look at each other) or what they do say does nothing to move the story along. I kept talking back to the characters in the movie (a really bad sign for me) in a vain attempt to "encourage" the characters to start acting in a sensible way. I thought several times how the premise of this movie could have been used so powerfully had the producers bothered to actually read the script and then, seeing it was so senseless and bad, had the good financial sense to get a good scriptwriter to fix it. I won't go into how sad it is that the actors involved were wasted on it or, more pathetically, exploited by it (I refer to the actress who plays the mother of the girl who is tied up in the church and who eventually releases here just to be killed by her). I think it's sad when an older actor/actress takes a role in a crappy film just for the money. They deserve so much better.

I do want to mention one scene which was both needlessly offensive and revealing about the quality of the script.
