Product Description

In the tradition of The Walking Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Night of the Living Dead. When college roommates Mark and Tom go out for a night at the bar, the last thing they expected to find was a machete wielding stranger and a horde of the undead. With the help of amateur photographer and video store clerk Raven, the unlikely party fights their way into an epic conflict between the living...and the dead. Zombie Apocalypse is a feature-length over-the-top action/adventure/horror movie. Its roots are in the style of the blockbusters of the 1980 s, John Carpenter films, and the energy of video games. Zombie Apocalypse has scenes of exciting action and intense drama, but it never takes itself too seriously for too long in the style of Zombieland. It focuses on four main characters and their adventures after a zombie outbreak spreads throughout the country. Miller: the mysterious stranger searching the country for his long-lost wife, who herself has ties to the creation of the zombies; Mark, a bullheaded college student with a chip on his shoulder and an axe in his hand; Tom, Mark s video game playing medical student roommate; and Raven, a rebellious video store clerk and amateur photographer who goes from depressed to overjoyed once the zombies hit. Throughout the movie they meet a host of other characters including a mob of survivors who call themselves The Marauders, shadowy agents, an Illuminati-style organization, and nemesis from the past.

Review

I really liked Zombie Apocalypse. I thought it had the likeability, energy and promise of classics like Phantasm and Evil Dead. It looks really good and the story and acting are very strong. All that splattering blood works well too. I will be recommending it. --Tom Sullivan (legendary SFX artist for the Evil Dead movies)

Without getting in depth or poetic, I loved it. A must see for zombie movie fans. --Aaron Reddinger, Zombie Movie Data Base

Zombie Apocalypse was nominated for a Dead Letter Award for Best Movie of 2008! --MailOrderZombie.com

I may be the only reviewer who really liked "Zombie Apocalypse" - and needed no brew to help me form that opinion. It's a terrific movie. I've totally given up going by Amazon reviews for zombie movies - for other kinds of movies, especially sci-fi, the reviews are usually right on; but for zombie movies they're usually a million miles off the mark. This movie was well made - I could see that from the very first scene. It was dark, foreboding, dramatic and immediately piqued my interest. That opening scene introduced both the main character - the action hero who dominated the movie - and his mysterious nemesis, who only re-emerged briefly about half way through then, finally, came to dominate the wrap-up.

"Zombie Apocalypse" was in some ways a zombie comedy as well as a traditional fight and flight flick. But the comedy wasn't in your face funny; it was more subtle. The action hero, who looked and sounded Hispanic, was named Dwight Miller - about as far from an action hero's name as from an Hispanic name. The chick, named Raven, who eventually came to be the movie's heroine, started out as an airhead whose greatest concern was capturing the zombies on film - not the standard video film but regular point-and-shoot camera pictures, which she planned to work into a montage once this zombie attack was over. Of course, she didn't realize then that zombie attacks are never over. The two college guys, named Tom and Mark, were a kind of Felix and Oscar Odd Couple, the rational one always asking how doing such-and-such a stupid thing would help the situation.

I made it through only 50 min of this movie and had to turn it off. The filming is horrible. The acting does not exist and worst of all the violence and gore is a joke. I love Zombie movies, and even some bad ones. But this was unwatchable.

The movie opens with a snuff scene that appears it could have come from Sin City. A man in handcuffs is set upon by a group of zombies, which we later find out were produced by the government, unless you read the comic book. Meanwhile Tom and Mark decide they want to go out for a drink, but like a trip to White Castle they get detoured.

There is also Raven, "don't call me Jennifer" who is a punk-goth looking photographer. She joins the group. As fate would have it these 4 end up together. We find out the man in cuffs is some kind of government agent who was supposed to have been killed by the zombie attack. Mark has issues with his former roommate Kevin, who is sleeping with his gf, or ex-gf. Kevin looks like a young Val Kilmer.

The movie has some real bad acting, like the bouncer at the bar who has "SECURITY" on his t-shirt. Fortunately the worse actors get eaten early. There seems to be a serious lack of guns for rural Michigan. There is one scene with some comical Dr. Evil diabolical laughter. The zombies are of the slow moving variety with a lousy make-up job.

The DVD comes with a PREQUEL comic book. It would help if you read the comic book first. 3 1/2 stars.

F-bomb, no sex, no nudity (unless you count the comic book which has topless drawings).

This was a very creative, fast-paced film with some nice touches of humor among the gore. I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested in low-budget horror.

One star... only because zero stars isn't an option. Totally cheesy B-movie here - there is a plot, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, it's full of contradictions (like... why would a survivor group broadcast an invitation to survivors, and then capture, roughhouse and then cage the people who respond to the invite? Why does the "world's best at eluding capture" expert spy guy keep allowing unskilled civilians to follow him into abandoned houses and other potential traps? And, the guy who is chasing this expert spy - why does he seem to have NO contact with the zombies, how does he just stroll through the wilderness and arrive at the exact location of the guy he's pursuing (with absolutely no indication that he's doing anything specific toward "following a trail" (assuming that the expert spy guy was leaving any trail.. considering the alleged "expertise" at eluding capture, wouldn't the existence of a trail be irrefutable evidence that the pursuer isn't following the right guy??)) How does a med school dropout end up being the (SURPRISE!!) leader of the paramilitary survivor group - wouldn't it be smarter to utilize whatever he DID learn in med school, by giving him a paramedic role and having someone with military experience (like, say, our expert spy guy..) serve as the leader of the zombie defense? Why does the climactic fight scene look like it was choreographed by John Belushi??) There are more holes in this script, than in all of the zombies killed here put together. This could be viewed as a kind of "Quest Story" - a journey toward a goal (here, the survivor compound and survival) where the journey is symbolic of the protagonist's journey toward redemption, personal growth, something noble or profound... but not here. Add terrible acting..Read more ›
