Editorial Reviews

Based on the IDW Publishing graphic novel written by Steve Niles (30 Days Of Night), Remains is set in a chilling post apocalyptic Reno, Nevada, and follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The group takes refuge in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead, who grow steadily stronger, smarter and more aggressive by the minute. The movie stars Grant Bowler (Killer Elite, True Blood), Lance Reddick (Fringe, Lost, The Wire), Miko Hughes (Pet Sematary) and Tawny Cypress (Rescue Me, Heroes).

4.0 out of 5 stars a nice surprise August 18, 2012
Format:DVD
After seeing the "made for television" 2012 Zombie Apocalypse, I had little hope for Remains, thinking it was going to have a lot of the same production value; mainly over used and cheesy C.G.I. affects and a thrown together story line with a poorly written script, which would all lead to annoying, clichéd characters that were under developed. Well, zombie movie lovers rejoice! The Chiller Channel has got their stuff together and made a durn fine, rooting, tooting zombie movie! Yes, it does have a slight "made for television" feel to it, in that there is no gratuitous loads of gore and blood and the intelligent actors don't have "f-bomb" diarrhea of the mouth! Some folks like that in their zombie movies, I however prefer a though out and well written story and script! And I got just that with Remains!
Now in other zombie movie reviews I have read where folks are disappointed that the movie didn't add "something new" to the zombie genre... sorry, but Remains is not a movie where the zombies "sparkle" in the sunlight while line dancing the Macarena ... maybe next time!!! Steve Nile has added a few "fresh" twists and turns to the zombie mythology which I liked a lot. In fact, I like Nile's infected cannibals a lot more that some of the "traditional" dead undead zombies. Yes, they are fast, but they are not the undead! This movie is not a bunch of "read between the lines social commentary" either... it's all about a group of survivors fighting zombies ... some live, some die, some make dumb mistakes and well, no one's character is an over inflated, typical Hollywood wanna-be action hero... the characters were all your average everyday person who was believable and did believable things that were in character.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST THING YOU EVER DID WAS ME! August 18, 2012
Format:DVD
This zombie film starts on international "Peace Day" when some undisclosed process will neutralize radiation and make nuclear weapons useless. While these sketchy details are televised in the background, Tom (Grant Bowler) and Tori (Evalena "cleavage" Marie) go to a bomb shelter to get it on at a Reno hotel casino. When they emerge I expected to see Burgess Meredith looking for his glasses, but instead there is a full blown zombie food riot going on outside. Like "Dawn of the Dead" the first rule is to secure the perimeter and eliminate zombie hazards within the safe zone...which isn't that easy as this appears to be the only hotel casino that doesn't have a gun stashed anywhere.

Our non-zombie people group narrows down to four, with one openly gay character. (Guess who dies first because killing off the brother first has become too cliche?) The radioactive zombies require head shots and are a combination of fast moving and foot dragging zombies, whichever suits the mood of the director. They have the unusual characteristic of sleeping while standing up and unlike the standard zombie fare, they do feed off each other. Bites appear to cause infection. At one point they talk about going to Catalina, which made me think of this being a "Zombie Apocalypse" prequel...which it isn't...I think.

Tom and Tori are the main characters who have a rocky relationship. There are some CG fire effects that are rather poor, i.e. holding a match in front of a picture, but they don't last long. Good acting performances for a low budget zombie film. The script needed some tightening up. Worth a view for zombie fans.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs that I recall, but it does have adult language (SOB etc.) sex, no nudity. Evalena Marie sports cleavage for much of the film in her red bra.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great. Totally watchable. July 15, 2012
Format:DVD
Maybe its just because I've watched so many terrible zombie movies that were made with more money and less love, but I thought this was kind of okay. It could have been better, yes. But it was enjoyable. There were a few moments that made no sense, but there were also a few moments where i cringed, and a few moments where i unexpectedly laughed my butt off at something that was SUPPOSED to be entertaining. SO i call that a win in this genre. I believe that this movie is a good example on the positive influence the success of "The Walking Dead" TV show is having on networks and studios throwing a couple dimes behind a director with a bit of vision. Now... if they could just start throwing them at BETTER directors with MORE time to work ..

1.0 out of 5 stars Beyond terrible. April 8, 2013
Format:DVD
Remains (Colin Theys, 2011)

Another film based on another Steve Niles piece, with expected results. This one, which pays tribute to 80s B movie Night of the Comet, sets its action in Las Vegas, and if you've seen a half-dozen random zombie movies, none of that action is going to be unpredictable--you have zombies, you have holed-up survivors, and you have the group who intrude on the survivors' territory and mess everything up, in this case military types led by Fringe's Lance Reddick. There is some amusement to be had with a hamster-ball-like contraption that allows folks to wander around outside, but that is in no way enough to allow you to suffer through this ridiculous attempt at horror. ˝

From what I remember of the comic, this 'remains' (no pun intended) pretty faithful.

However this may be unfortunately it's undoing as elements that you can pass off or are acceptable in print, in this come off as slightly pantomime and lame if not just a bit farcical (the plank across buildings scene and the jumping into the pool escape come to mind if you've seen it) .

Zombies sleeping or resting at night wasn't all that bad, but they would wake up to order. Music would blast out and they would all wake up at once, however gunfire would erupt and only one or two would seem to react at a time or when threatened with gunfire en-mass they would be kept at bay sometimes but not others.
It gave you the impression they were not mindless, with them being aware of danger (gunfire) and getting into rooms etc, but then they struggle to climb onto a flat bed truck (at waist height) to reach a group of people, which again was inconsistent.

The soldiers arrival scene was rushed, to the point where it may have been better to omit it all together because you began to feel they were trying to cram too much into a short space of time (trying to illustrate cabin fever and boredom of being trapped in the same environment with the same people, as large as that environment is takes time and this is what eats up most of the movie but unfortunately it doesn't really do even that justice)

Don't get me wrong, as I did enjoy it and Evalena (apart from being hot....LOL) was great as the cow from hell to be trapped with (again very faithful both physically et al to the comic).
