Not bad for a low budget zombie movie.
Aper-son
The zombie craze has turned from slow foot dragging, return from the dead, zombies to fast moving unthinking pack animals that attack uninfected people.
The Movie Guy
I wasn't expecting what I got, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Anchor Bay's most recent zombie flick, THE DEMENTED, is sure to continue a bit of discussion that has plagued the zombie community over the past several years: can a creature be classified as a `zombie' if it runs? To me, I don't suppose I really care whether or not they move quickly, as long as they haven't been dead for a while (I think a body that has been rotting for 10 years would have a hard time getting around at any speed). But regardless of which side of the fence you are on, this is one film you should check out anyway. Be forewarned, however...it does not introduce anything new and barely has any gore.

THE DEMENTED caught me by surprise. I wasn't expecting what I got, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. I wanted to like it up front because the beautiful and talented Sarah Butler is in it, but I was surprised to find out she was not the main character. And although I enjoyed it on the whole, the film does have some glaring flaws. Even so, the movie is pretty good overall and a decent addition to the modern-day zombie canon.

The acting in this film is good, with the aforementioned Sarah Butler doing a fantastic job in her role. But Kayla Ewell, the woman portraying the main character of Taylor, is who really steals the show. Ewell tackles her role with enthusiasm, and is a true talent to watch for in the future.

THE DEMENTED is also shot well and the production value looks fairly high. However there are two major issues that I have with this film. First, the ending is beyond horrible. I initially thought the filmmakers had messed up and sent the wrong thing to print...but from what I understand, this was the way they intended to end the film.

This movie is just another zombie movie with sub par zombie effects... I could come up with better special effects with paper mache... but in this movies defense i havent seen a decent zombie movie since the 80's/ early 90's... hoping World War Z comes out on Amazon soon... id really like to see just one more decent zombie movie in my lifetime.

This is a low budget wannabe zombie flick. Three bikini teases and their boyfriends spend some time away from their college studies to have some fun in rural Louisiana. While a slow motion camera films them playing on a kids water slide (the hill wasn't that steep and the slide wasn't that long) and tossing a Nerf football (can't you feel the adrenaline rush?), NuBuck (Michael Welch) gets a call from his father claiming that terrorist missiles are on the way.

Our couples are spared a direct hit, but a biological agent is spread about causing a rabies like infection in people and animals. The zombie craze has turned from slow foot dragging, return from the dead, zombies to fast moving unthinking pack animals that attack uninfected people. Our couples' goal is to escape the quarantined area without being bit by anything.

The film boasts a metal sound track, bad dialog, with stiff characters played by actors that haven't reached their potential. I did like the infected dog.

This is the first attempt by writer/director Christopher Roosevelt, whose resume includes being the producer of "Ninja Cheerleaders." It shows promise. It would have been nice if he had created clever dialog characters. The boyfriend cheating drama went nowhere and I am not sure why that was even tossed in. We could have had another two minutes of bikini girls on the slip and slide.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

If you love the walking dead series and expect this movie to be as good, you're in for a huge disappointment.

Waste of time and money. A turd in a diarrhea avalanche. If the Zombie Apocalypse ever happens and I am trapped with a group like this I will willingly douse myself with Heinz 57 sauce and crowd surf the first Zombie horde I encounter.

Avoid this movie like the plague. The stuntmen and stuntwomen are amazing but the movie is a big green bad CG stink bomb. Nothing new here. Go watch 28 Days Later, World War Z, Silent Hill or Dawn of the Dead instead.

Caught this one on PPV; want my money back!! As someone in an earlier review pointed out, this really isn't a zombie flick so much as it is a tale about a bioterrorist attack somewhere in the middle of Louisiana. The people do not turn into zombies; they are just really manical and savage. Six 30-year olds (playing teens) decide to get together at somebody's mansion for boozing, losing, and lord, I don't know. One of the things I thought was so hilarious was they played on a water slide!! I know we're trying to save money, guys, but couldn't you have found a swimming pool somewhere? Anyway, a terrorist attack happens and the little animals and people suddenly become savages.

I cannot agree with some of the others about this film. I found the production values near nil, and the acting--for the most part--just did not cut it. In these types of films, there is ALWAYS the brainy one, the nymphette, the horn-dog, and Sister Mary Virgin. Trouble is, not ONE of these characters did I care about. There is ABSOLUTELY next to no violence and certainly no GORE. Why this was rated R is again a question for you guys to figure out.
