Editorial Reviews

A band of crusading knights escorts the Holy Grail through a plague-ridden countryside, destined for a distant land. Hunted by assassins, the knights venture into the forbidden Valley of Black Death. What they discover is even more terrifying than the plague and the ruthless killers hot on their trail; the Valley of Black Death is home to the undead. Overrun by hordes of flesh eating zombies, their only chance for survival is a mysterious maiden who can guide them out. Their final, chilling journey (to either death or success) becomes the ultimate battle of men vs. undead as they face a non-stop barrage of gruesome, murderous walking dead.

In 1349 during the Black Plague in Britain a group of knights lead by a priest (Feth Greenwood) are on a secret mission, which you already know is that they carry the Holy Grail which unfortunately is not an effective zombie weapon. They travel through the valley of the cursed, one that looks like it should have a wizard named "Tim" and a killer bunny with fangs, but it doesn't, just zombies.

Finally somebody got this Black Plague thing correct, it was zombies. I really was growing tired of that rat/flea/sanitation global warming nonsense. Eventually they encounter Badriyah (Vivien Vilela) a "witch" who knows some earth magic and more importantly how to deal with zombies. Oh yeah, there are some bad guys after them too.

The film is consumed with them traveling over desolate land. You can easily skip about the first 30 minutes. The movie shows "hordes" of zombies in the distant, but it was too low budget for them to hack up more than a half dozen or so at a time. For historical cheese "Vikingdom" is better. And for zombies, just pick one.

Great historical film. Should be on the "The History Channel" right after "Noah's Ark."

Sex and nudity (Vivien Vilela). Normally I don't comment on the sex scenes, but this one had an incredible amount of slurping kissing. It was funny to listen to. 3 stars for stupidity enjoyment.

Its a B or even a C movie. I didn't have high expectations going in besides expecting on turning it off within 30 mins. Surprisingly I could sit through the whole thing. Not a bad story not poorly presented but its a low budget movie

No big known actors here but not bad acting. It is set during the times of the Black Plague and a Monk is given the task of transporting a church relic. With 4 knights to protect him they run afoul of a bandit and his men when they defend themselves. To elude them, the knights and priest enter a cavern that leads them into a land inhabited by the dead. They find a woman who has been exiled to this land. She is not trusted but only she knows the way out and will lead them if they take her with them. The dead and the vengeful bandits are on their trail but with the holy relic drawing the evil dead and the bandits determined to kill them they are in for the fight. The direction could have been better and the knights do things no soldier or experienced warrior would do but the story line is good. Too bad this was not a big budget movie, it would have been great.

If you are looking for a zombie genre movie that doesn't completely suck this is a good one. It's a B movie with a few cringe worthy spots, but the acting isn't terrible; don't get me wrong, there will be no Oscar winners out of this, but I've see much worse.

Without giving away too much, it's a nice departure from the overused urban zombie apocalypse, at least this one has some scenery. If you have any knowledge about the time period, forget it while you are watching this and you'll be fine. I'm an historian and I kept having to remind myself it was a B grade movie.

Ending is a bit cliche, but what do you expect?

This movie did not have a good plot and didn't resolve things well at the end but overall for a B movie done independently it was surprisingly well done. The scenery was pretty cool filmed in Wales so as someone else commented a departure from the urban locations all the time. You could sit thru. the entire movie...

This movie was so bad it was almost good . . . almost. When you start watching it, the only way to track who these people are and what they are doing is by reading the plot synopsis on the Amazon page. Several warriors with medieval-sounding names led by a generic priest character score a valuable object from a monk who inexplicably dies for no reason. A big bad bald guy who talks like he knows he's a bad guy wants the object (which turns out to be the grail -- yawn) and somehow knows that these warriors have it. Several mentions of plague are given, and you can make a drinking game out of how many times someone says "This place is cursed!"
The fight scenes are mostly well-choreographed, even though the fighting style of the warriors is a mix between middle ages sword-fighting and mixed martial arts, but if you aren't bothered by their use of modern military hand-signals and colloquial catch-phrases, then that shouldn't bother you either.
The actors are not bad, but the writing is, so there's not much they can do about that. The cinematography is not bad, either, but I'm baffled by the choice of grayscale and muted color tones. I guess they were going for "bleak," but like their overuse of the phrase "This place is cursed," it's as subtle as a rock to the head.
I like how sincere it is in its attempt to mesh zombie horror with sword-swinging action, and it doesn't quite make the grade. But it is fun and, like I said, a good drinking movie. I giggled all the way through it.

It's a low budget zombie movie. Don't expect much, and don't over think it. It has zombies, knights, priests and religion. It also has lots of blood and killing, a little sex with even less nudity.
