Editorial Reviews

nellormai lontano 1968, uno strano quanto pericoloso virus colpi' un ospedale militare in pennsylvania causando latroce morte di soldati e medici che, nel giro di pochi istanti, risuscitavano affamati di carne umana. a distanza di quasi quarantanni, viene costruito, sulle rovine del vecchio nosocomio, un nuovo ospedale destinato alla cura dei malati di mente. ma il virus non e' ancora debellato ed orde di zombi sono ancora affamate di sangue.

Format: DVD
This movie, and I use that word loosely here, carries the title of Day of the Dead mainly in an attempt to lure in fans of George Romero's "Dead" films. Day of the Dead 2: Contagium, is in no way, shape, or form, associated with the legendary horror director, and is said to be a "tribute". This "tribute" is basically amateurish film making at the very worst, with horrible acting and editing, and the blood and gore effects are incredibly fake looking. The story, or lack there of, attempts to tie into the storyline of Romero's films, but it makes no sense at all. Now I know this crew had little to work with, but amateur horror movies of the past, such as the classic original Evil Dead and even the Dead Next Door, have proven that you can do a lot with a little. The fact that Anchor Bay, which has given us great Special Editions of the aforementioned films and even Romero's Dawn of the Dead and the real Day of the Dead, would release this is mind boggling, but I guess everyone is into cash-in's these days. All in all, Day of the Dead 2 is beyond bad, and it should definitely be avoided by everyone.

Oh dear! After a slightly entertaining first five minutes (the inept special forces team and least gave me a few laughs as they 'contain' a hospital with their rather pathetic skills), the movie degenerates into a talkfest with dull characters doing amazingly dull things - but do we have an exciting finale? Well no! No no no no no. A few people falling on others and pretending to eat them. The lead characters doing nothing in particular. The lead bad guys doing nothing in particular. A few messy looking zombies that are ineffective because - gasp, the things they are doing are so tension free, relatively goreless and frankly dull.

I'm sorry, folks, but the crime of dullness has been committed . . . this movie is found guilty on all fronts.

I know. You're going to watch it anyway because it has zombies. But I tried to warn you, I really did.

On the back of the DVD case there's a bit that states the following...'Part prequel, part sequel, and a total, gut-ripping, gore-spewing homage to the original'. After watching Day of the Dead 2: Contagium (2005) a more applicable statement might have been `Part prequel, part sequel, 100% unadulterated rubbish'...at least in terms of the film trying to be an entry into George Romero's original `Dead' series. Written and co-directed by Ana Clavell (Creepshow 3), the other director being James Glenn Dudelson (Creepshow 3), who's also listed as the producer, the film features Laurie Baranyay (Intoxicating), Justin Ipock (Grave Situations), and Stephan Wolfert. Also appearing is Steve Colosi, John Freedom Henry (American Skin 2: Eagles Gathering), Julian Thomas, Samantha Clarke, Joe C. Marino (Hatchetman), and Andreas van Ray...as you can see, for many of the performers this was their first feature, and it shows much of the time.

As the movie begins the year is 1968 and we're at a Ravenside, a military installation somewhere in Pennsylvania (interestingly enough there happens to be palm trees in Pennsylvania, something I didn't know. I did, however, know there were palm trees in L.A., where the film was actually shot). Anyway, something bad is going down (beside this film), resulting in zombies running around, and the military makes the scene, killing everything on sight. One man escapes with a thermos containing a whirly, twirly vial, but he gets shot and the thermos is lost in the underbrush. Fast forward some thirty-seven years and we see a group of schmucks (inmates at an asylum that just happens to be located where the military installation was so many years prior, at least before the army blew it up) and one of them finds the thermos, believing it to be some sort of treasure.

Don't de fooled by the title, this movie has nothing to do with any of the Dead Films. This movie is about space zombies that have a higher thought process than the reqular run of the mill zombies. They have a telepathic link to each other, morph into spacelike creatures after eating human flesh, and make regular zombies by biting and killing people. If I was George I would be seriously pissed off for this movie being related in any way, shape, or form to his series. I did give this film two stars for at least being a somewhat creative prospective towards the zombie genre. Honestly though if you want to make a film don't cling it to the title of someone elses work unless you know what you are doing. That's one reason this movie is pissing so many off. Cheesiness aside.

Sometimes a bad movie can be "fun" if you know what I mean, but this is so bad you can't even laugh at it. Mostly I felt sorry for the people "acting" in it. Sad, sad, sad. I'm glad George Romero had nothing to do with this. Not even worth a rental.

0 stars out of 5.

Even as I huge fan of George Romero & Sam Raimi (both playing a part in many of the films released on Anchor Bay)I have an ability to endure some really stupid stuff and still be like Wow. I venture to say that this movie is 100% grade A Carpola. I mean yeah George Romero had nothing to do with this film but the fact that it was realsed on Achor Bay the same studeo that released the original versions "Dawn of the Dead "& "Day of the Dead" and dared to use the Title "Day of the Dead 2" as well as called itself "Homage" I expected so much better. This movie is so bad it borders on Camp, if only it had been intended too.However for your Zombie Experts this is a fun movie to break out with at a get together for a few good laughs but hardly as good as "Shaun of the Dead". The only scarey thing about this film is knowing how much you spent on it & the idea that Romero hasn't filed a copy-rite lawsuit yet.This movie is lucky there wasn't a -5 to choose from.The real "Good" news is after seeing this movie "Showgirls" isn't so bad anymore.
