Editorial Reviews

Two college roommates get the fright of their lives when they head out to the bar, and come face to face with a shambling army of the undead. All Mark and Tom wanted was a fun night out on the town, but now they'll be forced to fight if they want to survive until dawn. Thankfully Mark is handy with an axe, and medical student Tom has played enough videogames to keep his cool in the chaos. With depressive video store clerk Raven helping to fend off the horde, they may stand a chance of making it through the night without getting devoured - or worse. But who is Miller, and what connection does his missing wife have to these horrible creatures. By the time the weary survivors find out, it may already be too late.

I may be the only reviewer who really liked "Zombie Apocalypse" - and needed no brew to help me form that opinion. It's a terrific movie. I've totally given up going by Amazon reviews for zombie movies - for other kinds of movies, especially sci-fi, the reviews are usually right on; but for zombie movies they're usually a million miles off the mark. This movie was well made - I could see that from the very first scene. It was dark, foreboding, dramatic and immediately piqued my interest. That opening scene introduced both the main character - the action hero who dominated the movie - and his mysterious nemesis, who only re-emerged briefly about half way through then, finally, came to dominate the wrap-up.

"Zombie Apocalypse" was in some ways a zombie comedy as well as a traditional fight and flight flick. But the comedy wasn't in your face funny; it was more subtle. The action hero, who looked and sounded Hispanic, was named Dwight Miller - about as far from an action hero's name as from an Hispanic name. The chick, named Raven, who eventually came to be the movie's heroine, started out as an airhead whose greatest concern was capturing the zombies on film - not the standard video film but regular point-and-shoot camera pictures, which she planned to work into a montage once this zombie attack was over. Of course, she didn't realize then that zombie attacks are never over. The two college guys, named Tom and Mark, were a kind of Felix and Oscar Odd Couple, the rational one always asking how doing such-and-such a stupid thing would help the situation.

At one time Zombie Apocalypse occupied my list as the worst zombie film ever made. However, I eventually decided, however irrationally, to see as many zombie films as possible, leading me to see over 60 full length films over the last six months or so and a large but uncounted amount of zombie short films on You Tube. As a result of this I have had to up the rank of Zombie Apocalypse to the higher end of the lower third. This does not mean it's good by any means, but it is a sincerely made attempt and I give extra points for sincerity and spirit. Although this seems to have been a bunch of Michigan college students out on Spring Break with time on their hands and a "let's make a movie" inspiration, they actually did fairly well with what they had.

A big part of the low ranking of many zombie films is because they have inspired people with hardly any budget. Consider that the average TV episode of The Walking Dead is over a million dollars and a low budget TV sitcom about half that; a minor Hollywood film with minor actors costs three to five million. Zombie Apocalypse had a budget of five thousand dollars, so imagine the difference. This is true of most low budget zombie films. People conditioned to expect certain things in terms of lighting, makeup, cinematography, sound, editing, writing and acting suddenly experience culture shock when they come across these films and discover that things they took for granted as baselines are actually pretty high up in production values. These low budget zombie films immediately turn many people off (understandably), but some of them have real entertainment value (beyond laughing at them which is also often a valid response) if you lower your standards and expectations.

A good low-budget zombie flick, it was entertaining. Most of the acting was adequate, none was above par. I love the fact that most of this was filmed in actual places and green/blue screened. It is refreshing to see a movie that is not filmed in the usual Hollywood soft-focus. Not an oscar winner, but most films aren't. The main character spoke with a gravelly voice most of the movie, then at the end he spoke with a mild Hispanic accent, I am not sure if he was trying to imitate Christopher Lambert or Ricardo Montalban. If you really like zombie movies you might like this, as long as your expectations are not that high. There are a bunch of cliches and humour in this movie, plus 'homage' to other movies. It's better than the one star average it has.

It really seemed like a group of friends with some camcorders just went to some abandoned buildings and just did this over the weekend. I love Zombie movies even will watch the bad ones so giving this two stars is saying if you really have time to waste and love zombie flicks even the cheesy ones where the zombies aren't at all scary then give this a go.But if you don't like the below B-rated zombie movies then don't waste your time I wouldn't rent or buy this movie I am so glad I watched this for free.

Don't confuse this movie with the 2012 Ving Rhames, Zombie Apocalypse same name but different pictures on the cover the Ving Rhames one is much better and worth a watch just FYI.

Wow, normally I love zombie movies, even the bad ones, but this one. Just couldn't get into. The special effects, especially those used on the zombies is ridiculous and not worthy of zombie movies. The acting is bad. Probably a bunch of college students that wanted to make their first film, which would be forgivable because we all have to start learning our trades somewhere. But, this movie doesn't make the grade. Just bad, bad, and then more bad.
