Product Description

In the near future, the world has been ravaged by a plague of unspeakable horror. A new carb-burning diet enzyme is all the rage until test subjects begin craving red meat and will stop at nothing to get it! Overwhelmed by the numbering flesh-eating populus, the government pulls back into walled-off cities known as "safe zones" where only the wealthy are allowed. In a large southern city a group of survivors known as the Dregs struggle to stay alive, the prey of two enemies — the flesh-eating living dead and a psychotic band of mercenaries known as the "Upper Class."

Into this world comes Kane — a stranger with a mysterious past and a skill for tackling the zombies head-on. After being taken in by the Dregs, he’s soon introduced to Adam, leader of the Upper Class, who has his own sinister designs on the loner. ZOMBIE PLANET is a blood-drenched, high-energy epic melding post-apocalyptic atmosphere into traditional zombie mythos while delivering a tongue-in-cheek warning about the dangers of no-carb diets gone horribly awry!

2.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Planet...let's have some more zombie action! April 20, 2005
Format:DVD
This movie seemed incapable of moving (and considering I can tolerate anything as long as there's a strong finish) or going anywhere.

This is mainly about two groups of people: the "upper class" (Bad People!) versus...well, the not upper class, in a movie about carb diets turning people into zombies, but the zombies seem to have little to do with the two groups of people fighting over dominion, food, and their personal safety--which could be cool, but done very boring and without a climax.

Bottom line:

Little gore, plot sucks, it lasts almost two hours, and for what, I keep asking myself, since there is no final battle with zombies vs. people, and finally, if you're going to make a bad horror movie, at least grace us with some nudity.

Skip this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars GREAT IDEA BUT BAD MOVIE February 16, 2005
Format:DVD
I thought the idea of how the zombie craze started was great. A

no carb diet pill gone bad. But the movie itself was so bad that I have to say I've seen better acting in porn movies. Now

I know it had a low budget but this really sucked.

1.0 out of 5 stars put the "B" in zombie June 28, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really don't mind a b flick but this was just silly. I'm even ok with with a little bad acting as long as you make up for it with some good carnage and gore. But no, this one's a real let down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have to be an indie film lover June 30, 2005
Format:DVD
I'd have to say that all in all I really enjoyed the movie, it had a great story line, and really good special effects. There could have been some more gory zombie scenes, but the creativity in the story make up for it. The acting for the most part was decent, in some instances some of the main actors do a great job, and I really enjoyed one of the fight scenes towards the end. I base these facts on the point that I watch alot of b movies and understand that the budget isn't there, and I have seen alot of crappy movies, and I didn't watch it expecting a gore scene every second, but I was impressed by the depth of the story and the characters. I would recomend this movie to anyone who is an indie buff, you'll really enjoy it, and I am looking forward to purchasing part 2

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombie Planet is Fun October 6, 2004
By Sven
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Zombie Planet Stays true to the Zombie Genre. It is Fun and action packed with very good make-up effects. Most of the planet has died as a result of a drug made to reduce carbo craves, people taking the drug turn into flesh eating zombies. the hero, "Kane" a nomad, fights his way through a city of zombies to save an outcast group of people known as the dregs. Kane does battle with the "Upper Class" leader, Adam, who controls the walled "safe zone"...all hell breaks loose, and plenty of blood.

If you like zombie movies, you'll like Zombie Planet. New-comer Frank Farhat does a great job as the mysterious Kane, and Matt Perry plays the evil Adam.

great special effects by Sven Granlund and Linda Goforth.

Zombie Planet has won an award for "Best Special Effects", at the NY Independant Film feastival in 2003

2.0 out of 5 stars A classic 80s Style B-movie January 24, 2005
Format:DVD
What more do you want? A cool hero who can kick butt fighting zombies and Mad Max style bad guys (secretly backed by a military conspiracy) in a post-apocalyptic world. I bought this movie and I can't wait to see the sequal. I don't understand some of these bad reviews (what you expected a big budget thriller? named Zombie Planet?) To me it was a great B movie. It reminded me of some great B-movies from the 80s (Huminoids from the Deep, Vampire Hunter). I especially liked that it is not your typical kids in a cabin movie. Kudos for some originality. Really, my only disappointment is that there was not more T & A and that some of the actresses (other than Jamaica) could have been better looking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Needs More Zombie Action!!! August 15, 2005
By Steve67
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie has a okay plot but just some really bad actors.The acting below average the set is good but the actors need help. It just seems to drag on with little action. I really thought this movie would take off but it just stood their the whole time. I'm really surprised there is going to be a second one. I paid $17.00 Dollars for this I really wish I did'nt. There are better films out their I suggest take a chance on something else.
