A smart thriller of a movie, this one traces the accidental creation of a mutating bacteria that turns people into blood-spewing (and spilling) killers. While the general concept is not new, the strength of this movie lies in the smart storytelling, lingering over character development, giving us reason to care for the characters long before all hell breaks loose, and focusing on the story behind the breakout of the bacterial plague. The characters feel like real people, with real lives, real problems. Although there are plenty of other killer virus/plague/zombie movies out there, none are as believably told as this. Definitely worth watching, and watching again.

Dr. Andrew Stanton (Brian Krause) Is a confident and successful ER doctor. He is also working on a cure for AIDS. ( I smell Nobel.) He has a beautiful wife (Sierra Fisk) and daughter (Islay Vermillion) he needs to spend more time with. Just as when things are going his way, his life turn upside down as he accidentally creates a bacteria that makes people aggressive and is highly contagious.

Now I know this sounds like a great zombie-type film and it would have been if it hadn't taken up nearly the whole film to develop. As it was we had a slow moving drama/thriller with a touch of horror at the end that wasn't worth 60 minutes of character development.

Available on a 30 Horror Film Collection.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs. Sex and brief nudity (?).

It hasn't been that long since I rented this movie and I have already forgotten the thing. That might provide a clue as to how good a movie this is. I streamed it via Roku after paying Amazon for the privilege and though I think I paid less than $3.00 to rent it I still feel a bit ripped off.
I cannot recommend this movie in any way.

Ashes is a middle of the road pre-plague/pre-zombie flick that requires an adult level of commitment and a genuine interest in Po-Ap, Zombie and Plague movies. It often feels like a SyFy movie with a plot that feels so often repeated, that most non-diehard Po-Ap viewers wont really commit nor give it a fair chance; that said, what plays out slowly, if given the chance is a brilliantly simple prequel to every zombie movie ever made.

Want to know how zombies came about? Want to know how all those scientist missed the "thing" that turned into the bigger "thing" ie plague that gave forth those zombies we all love? Want to understand how simple mistakes, oversights, narcissistic motivations and outright sloppiness led to mankind's downfall?.. Then this fairly simple, sometimes B movie soap opera grade take on the beginning of the end is your answer. This is the more realistic version of Contagion in that no one, no less everyone, does the right thing.. that is, self-sacrifice and uber altruism are mostly absent. Hollywoods usual way of making us have faith in the govt, trust in those that are appointed as our saviors and an overall hope that it will all work out are for the most part absent as well.

Ashes gives us a bare bones realistic take on why crap often goes wrong and how the cure for cancer (as in I'am Legend) or in this case the unsanctioned cure for AIDS can go wrong just as easily as it could go right. When it does go wrong, we have to hope that someone anyone will do the right thing for the betterment of the people versus the stroking of there own ego or the coverup of there mishaps.

MILD SPOILER..

..the end blew me away, because like i said in the beginning, i realized it slowly but nicely sets up every zombie, plague, TEOTWAWKI movie you have pretty much ever seen...

I was pleasantly surprised at how well done and acted this movie turned out to be. I'm a huge Zombie/apocalyptic movie buff and this has been one of the most realistic in regards to understanding how the dead can comeback and live. It made me come away with actually believing that something like this could actually happen one day. It took a while for the "good" stuff to happen, but it was interesting to watch how this bacteria began to mutate and turn it's victims into mad raging killers. I seriously dug this enough to actually write this review. My only complaint and why it only gets four stars and not five is that it ended too soon.

Ok it was good, actually it was very good though its a slow subtle start and just when it picks up and gets heated with zombie mania the film ends; but that's a good thing since you can then go and watch "The Walking Dead', 'Dawn of the Dead', '28 Days Later' or any other zombie film and finally feel like you understand how all the madness came to pass. Now its pretty realistic except for two pieces in the story line that just doesn't add up. You have a doctor who has discovered a miracle drug for HIV/AIDS, its experimental but performing so well everyone is urging him to publish the findings and get it approved but he doesn't feel its ready yet, he needs more sample cases, this is how meticulous the man is as a scientist, researcher doctor. Now keeping this in mind he gets an emergency patient who's condition is critical. So what does he do? He uses the experimental drug on this patient.

Gross inconsistencies:

1. A doctor can lose his license for using an experimental drug on a patient who hasn't given consent, and is basically underage, as the drug isn't FDA approved. So why would a doctor who's so meticulous about his research on this miracle drug up and do something as medically irresponsible as use it on a patient he hasn't treated before (knows no medical history) and where there's no formal diagnoses of what had gone wrong critical or not? Well the answer is that a doctor who is really as good as this one is supposed to be wouldn't do that. He's not portrayed as a mad scientist after all but as someone who adhere's to protocol. So this part of the story doesn't make sense and it nags at one like one big loose end.

2. The disease is passed through blood or saliva.
