Editorial Reviews

When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors flee the chaos of America to a remote island, hoping for a chance to start a new life. What they find is unrelenting horror. Beyond the hordes of the flesh-hungry undead, the other people already on the island force the pair into a fight-or-die battle amongst themselves. Armed only with crude weapons, they must descend to savagery and cutthroat tactics just to make it through each day. Packed with cutting-edge action and outrageous gore, Dead Season is a riveting new spin on the zombie genre!

I was pretty excited about this one. I watch just about every zombie movie that comes out from the big budget ones down to things made for a hundred bucks. What i can tell you is that along THAT continuum, this is by far above average. But does that mean its GOOD? I'm not sure - but its not BAD. As far as the technical aspects go, this film is lovely. The cinematography is excellent (i'm going to assume it was filmed on DSLR - looks like a 5D or 7D?) and everything is wonderfully framed. The acting is above par for a film of this budget. The "bad" guy is the strongest performance, with maybe the most unsteady of all coming from the male "lead" - though not to a degree that takes away from anything. I use quotation marks because there isn't really a lead or a villain, just people that NEARLY take that role. Now, i don't have a problem with not filling standard archetypes of film - its just that these characters could have been so much deeper. The pacing of this film was so fast that you didn't really get a chance to feel story. It could have been about half an hour longer, really. But the pacing was so quick that some of the scenes didn't work - such as an emotionally intense execution of an infected party member when, in fact, you've only had 5 minutes of screen time to get to know the character. It just feels a little bit rushed, which upsets you because it didn't need to be rushed.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars HOTDOGS AND PANCAKES September 15, 2012
Format:DVD
During the zombie apocalypse, shortwave dating will replace Internet dating. A viral outbreak has created zombies which are called "walkers" with second generation zombies known imaginatively as "runners." It appears canned peaches will be the main food staple/currency in the post apocalyptic world (Dead Season, The Road, Hell, Soylent Green...no wait that was strawberry jam.)

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).

2.0 out of 5 stars Dead Season January 31, 2013
Format:DVD
Elvis and Tweeter think they've found hope off the coast of Florida, but they soon find themselves trapped on an island that is swarming with the undead! Brace yourself for more of the same tired cliches in the new zombie survival film DEAD SEASON, Adam Deyoe's fifth feature film following other such classics as PSYCHO SLEEPOVER and YETI: A LOVE STORY. The bore-o-meter is reading surprisingly high in Florida during this year's DEAD SEASON, with the only thing duller than the characters being the dreadful dialog that accompanies them. Cinematography Jeffrey Peters seems unusually obsessed with keeping everything tight in frame, filming nearly every shot in an unnecessary close-up. Credit is due to the film's make-up team for sticking strictly to practical effects, but the zombie action is infrequent at best, and hardly worth the wait. Everyone has their favorite season, but DEAD SEASON comes in dead last on that list.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Film where the Zombies can run - shocker! January 2, 2013
Format:DVD
Yes this is another Zombie film it is also known as `The Running Dead'. The synopsis is that the outbreak of `the walkers' has been raging for a year and as usual society has collapsed and the few survivors face a daily battle to get the remaining food and just survive. Elvis (Scott Peat -`Transformers') makes contact with Tweeter (Marissa Merrill) and she has adopted a young boy called Toady, so all the names are original. They decide there is safety in numbers.

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.
