Editorial Reviews

A band of crusading knights escorts the Holy Grail through a plague-ridden countryside, destined for a distant land. Hunted by assassins, the knights venture into the forbidden Valley of Black Death. What they discover is even more terrifying than the plague and the ruthless killers hot on their trail; the Valley of Black Death is home to the undead. Overrun by hordes of flesh eating zombies, their only chance for survival is a mysterious maiden who can guide them out. Their final, chilling journey (to either death or success) becomes the ultimate battle of men vs. undead as they face a non-stop barrage of gruesome, murderous walking dead.

In 1349 during the Black Plague in Britain a group of knights lead by a priest (Feth Greenwood) are on a secret mission, which you already know is that they carry the Holy Grail which unfortunately is not an effective zombie weapon. They travel through the valley of the cursed, one that looks like it should have a wizard named "Tim" and a killer bunny with fangs, but it doesn't, just zombies.

Finally somebody got this Black Plague thing correct, it was zombies. I really was growing tired of that rat/flea/sanitation global warming nonsense. Eventually they encounter Badriyah (Vivien Vilela) a "witch" who knows some earth magic and more importantly how to deal with zombies. Oh yeah, there are some bad guys after them too.

The film is consumed with them traveling over desolate land. You can easily skip about the first 30 minutes. The movie shows "hordes" of zombies in the distant, but it was too low budget for them to hack up more than a half dozen or so at a time. For historical cheese "Vikingdom" is better. And for zombies, just pick one.

Great historical film. Should be on the "The History Channel" right after "Noah's Ark."

Sex and nudity (Vivien Vilela). Normally I don't comment on the sex scenes, but this one had an incredible amount of slurping kissing. It was funny to listen to. 3 stars for stupidity enjoyment.

Its a B or even a C movie. I didn't have high expectations going in besides expecting on turning it off within 30 mins. Surprisingly I could sit through the whole thing. Not a bad story not poorly presented but its a low budget movie

Moody, dark and a bit slow paced (a lot of traveling from a to b could have been edited down). Note the repetitive names in the credits give away the low budget! But some of the characters look really authentic, while the zombies are, well, meh. Those who quit watching after 10 minutes should have not reviewed, but I did find myself jumping ahead at times. Some will not appreciate the priest doing the wild thing with the witch.

Nice atmospherics, locations and subdued color save this from being total rubbish.

The period film depicting a group of knights on some kind of mission that was poorly defined, who end up as table fare for thousands of 10th century Zombies.Early on they showed their prowess as fighters while defeating armed soldiers however, as the film wore on they couldn't even fend off limping rotting corpses who just wanted a free meal. As breathtaking as the acting was, the actual plot was a little more confusing.
There were a number of realistic questions that it generated. 1. Why did the zombies usually go for the intestines? Of all the body parts these would likely be the least appetizing. 2. The bald headed stooge that was chasing the knights apparently knew about Zombie valley. Did he really have to go in there to end up on the menu? and lastly 3. All the others turned to zombies when they died. What is different about the girl's physiology who turned by just being bitten? Curious. This must have been her punishment for molesting a priest.

No big known actors here but not bad acting. It is set during the times of the Black Plague and a Monk is given the task of transporting a church relic. With 4 knights to protect him they run afoul of a bandit and his men when they defend themselves. To elude them, the knights and priest enter a cavern that leads them into a land inhabited by the dead. They find a woman who has been exiled to this land. She is not trusted but only she knows the way out and will lead them if they take her with them. The dead and the vengeful bandits are on their trail but with the holy relic drawing the evil dead and the bandits determined to kill them they are in for the fight. The direction could have been better and the knights do things no soldier or experienced warrior would do but the story line is good. Too bad this was not a big budget movie, it would have been great.

This was awesome! I really liked the story and all the actors were pretty good, too. The zombies were a little strange, but not horrible. The witch was freaking gorgeous! Man I'd like to see her in more movies. All in all I'd say it ain't Shakespeare, but it was still a pretty good movie.

A complete waste of time, celluloid, money and brain cells. Pure and unadulterated crap, from the opening titles to the closing credits. Amazon, you should be ashamed to be associated with such drivel. I'd ask for a refund, if I thought that there was the slimmest hope of receiving one.

If you are looking for a zombie genre movie that doesn't completely suck this is a good one. It's a B movie with a few cringe worthy spots, but the acting isn't terrible; don't get me wrong, there will be no Oscar winners out of this, but I've see much worse.

Without giving away too much, it's a nice departure from the overused urban zombie apocalypse, at least this one has some scenery. If you have any knowledge about the time period, forget it while you are watching this and you'll be fine. I'm an historian and I kept having to remind myself it was a B grade movie.

Ending is a bit cliche, but what do you expect?
