The zombie make up was alright. Not amazing but not cheap. The sets work really well and you believe pretty much everything you see. There is even a few doses of nudity that, well, aren't half bad.
Overall, I would recommend this movie and really would have liked to have seen a longer, more "fleshed out" version.
Elvis (Scott Peat) meets Tweeter (Marissa Merrill) while shortwave dating. They opt to go off to the proverbial zombie free island, only in this film they actually do it. Once there, they discover the island is controlled by a paramilitary group. Walkers will wash up on the beach and have to be re-killed. There is also a very limited food supply as the government has contaminated the soil.
The island is run by Kurt (James C. Burns) who keeps is 17 year old daughter locked up in her room (Corsica Wilson) where every dad wants to keep his teen daughter. Elvis is a paramedic who kills walkers with a sledge hammer and doesn't listen to Peter Gabriel. Typical infighting within the group and occasional zombie infestation fill up the film until the end sequence.
This isn't the worse zombie movie out there. It just doesn't bring much new to the table. Acceptable acting and script. Walmart has the film for $9.96 and personally I would wait until it hits the $5.00 mark.
Parental Guidance: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Marissa Merrill).
Below average, but not entirely unwatchable, zombie thriller that at least attempts to do what every good zombie movie should: focus more on the survivors than the zombies. (Have you noticed how few recent zombie movies actually do that?) It's an amateur production made mostly by folks who generally do other things in the world (director Adam Deyoe, for example, usually works in the art department; his most recent job as I write this was as the art swing on Fading of the Cries. No wonder he wants to direct. But he also worked as the set dresser on the highly underrated 2006 shlockfest Candy Stripers, so it hasn't all been downhill), and from that angle, I have to give everyone involved points for enthusiasm, at least.
Plot: Elvis (Transformers' Scott Peat) and Tweeter (The Symphony's Marissa Merrill) are two of the final survivors of the zombie apocalypse still alive in mainland America. They've made it to Miami, where they're hoping to get out to the islands, where they figure they will have a better chance of survival. They procure a boat and head south, finding what they're looking for--but it turns out to be a little less idyllic than they were hoping.
The movie's strongest point is that it's got some really interesting ideas--not only about how people will survive after everything goes to hell (think of this as a different twist on the "we promised them women" scene from 28 Days Later...), but about how the pragmatism enforced upon survivors in the face of an apocalypse can bring about shifting allegiances and force people to make decisions that they would otherwise not even think about.Read more ›
Well Elvis has made a deal to get a boat and enough fuel to get to this island that is allegedly Zombie free. So they go for it. At this point in time the Zombies can only shuffle around in the normal way, but they are beginning to mutate and reports are coming through that they have managed to evolve to being much more athletic.
Once on the island they discover that what they were told was not a clear representation of the facts and the daily struggle gets worse. There are loads of Zombie films that do a new take on the genre and this does try that, but for gore fans there may not be enough here to hold your full attention as much of the movie deals with the relationships of the non Zombies and how they are coping with the mental trauma. However the film actually works better for it as the Zombie menace is never very far away and is influencing everything else.
This is a well acted and directed film but I really didn't think it was overly inventive which is actually fine for Zombie purists as we have seen some very un Zombie behaviour in a few of late like `Dead Heads' to name but one. Still if you like a good character study with Zombie `action' and half a market (yes they bought the gore in a market in Mexico) of gore, then you will probably enjoy this.

It had a decent story but everything else from the camera work to special effects and acting were below average. Skip it. There are far better zombie movies out there to watch.Published 11 months ago by Rob
If you like zombie movies, this one pretty much ticks off all the boxes required for that genre. Don't go looking for surprises or plot twists, because there aren't any.Published 14 months ago by S J Lewis
