Scott Thomas has done a lot of episodic television and low-budget films, and he has the right sensitivity - if you can be sensitive about zombies - to this kind of film. In addition to directing the movie, Thomas also helped write it with Sidney Iwanter and Mark Onspaugh.
There are no stars in this feature, but there are some guys who've been around the block. David Chisum plays Special Agent Truman Burroughs, one of the good guys. You might know him from the television soap, ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
Richard Tyson plays US Air Marshal Paul Judd. Tyson has been a major player at times in big movies, such as the villain in Schwarzenegger's KINDERGARTEN COP.
Neither one of our heroes is really outstanding. But they don't have to be. It's zombies on an airplane!
I showed the DVD to my 10-year-old, who hasn't become a zombie fan yet, though he did watch DAWN OF THE DEAD (the remake) with me recently. Then he spent the night in bed with me and his mom. Zombies have to be acclimated to slowly, I think.
But his first comment was, "On a plane, huh? They're not going to get away, are they? There's nowhere to run."
And that, my friends, was probably the pitch line used by the movie developers. Honestly, it was enough to get me to the screen and start watching zombies crawling through the big Concord jet. You really won't believe how many zombies can be put on one of those big jets!Read more ›
Anyway, as I said the film plays with it's core material very well, and for a while the outbreak of zombie mayhem is quite high octane excitement, as slobbering ghouls run up and down the aisles, biting screaming passengers and generally flinging bodies all over the place. Inevitably, it proves impossible to maintain such a level of excitement for very long, I mean it's just the one normal sized plane (not some impossibly large movie location type plane that stretches on forever I'm pleased to report) so things have to go somewhere pretty swiftly. There's only so long you can avoid a mob of zombies on a plane in midflight!Read more ›
1) ACTING: The acting was very good in this movie. Everyone made their roles believable. Even though some stereotypical characters were present, there were no problems.
2) PRODUCTION: The production values of this movie were very good. Scenes were properly lit, no weird camera angles, special effects were good and there was plenty of blood and gore. When someone is attacked by a zombie, you see the rips and tears and teeth marks on the victims. You see the wound where the blood is coming from, not just "let's throw blood on an actor and say they've been wounded." Nice normal soundtrack as well.
3) ZOMBIES: The zombies here would be "Snyder Runners," not that there is really anywhere to run on a jet, but they are very violent and aggressive. The zombie make up consisted of creepy eye contacts and a mouth full of blood. More than a few times, the viewer sees the zombies "licking their chops." There is no sign of the zombies remembering when they were alive, and no type of communication other than a cobra-like hiss.
4) THE CAUSE: Man made virus spread by mosquitos.
5) NUDITY: None.
This movie was just a fun little romp into zombieland. For a "B" movie, it was pretty good. I really think this should have been released to theaters. While there is nothing new here (zombie-wise) that hasn't been seen before, having a jet full of zombies was a good idea, as literally, there is nowhere to run and escape or hide. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary or new when it comes to zombie movies, you won't find it here. This is just another solid, entertaining entry into the "living dead" movie genre.
RATING: 4 out of 5
