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. The doctor is bitten by the emergency patient after he's injected with miracle drug that makes whatever he initially had mutate and become aggressive. Fine. In the scene the doctor is wearing a lab coat when he gets bit and its obvious that he is bleeding under the lab coat but the lab coat is in no way frayed or ripped, suggesting that he wouldn't have had any contact with the patience saliva. Also note that when they first treat this emergency walk in they don't use any gloves while taking samples and dealing with the patient which isn't standard protocol in hospitals. They actually have wall disposable glove canisters in the rooms.
Anyway the second point if forgivable but the first one is a claw in the lions paw, even still this is a really really good film and a must watch for those who love the whole zombie thing. I like the fact that is so subtle, that they don't fall for cheap frights or over the top zombie art makeup. I also like the idea that they leave the end open in term of its taking you to the point where the break-out of the disease is out of control. Its explaining the zombie phenomenon more than it is giving you the zombie's on the loose scenario or how to survive a zombie apocalypse. Taking the role as the prequel to all zombie films puts this film in a very unique place of its own. I would recommend this to horror and zombie fans, I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in distinctive filmmaking. And I would recommend this to anyone who ever thought that a zombie apocalypse was outside the realm of reality. In fact this film is disturbing as it resonates long after the film is watched.
I think this is a good rental and I think its a good enough film for someone to own (if this is your kind of thing).
If you watch this movie, here is what you will get - Sleepy
