Three months have passed since a viral outbreak wiped out 99.9% of the world's population, turning its victims into flesh-eating living dead. In the UK, a surviving band of soldiers and civilians have taken refuge at a rural military barracks. Life in this new world is tough and brutal, but hope appears when a high level communication is received from a military base on the coast, telling of sanctuary elsewhere in Europe...

Yes, this is another of those tedious handheld camera flicks that defy rationale (even for a zombie movie). Exactly where did this cameraman get a never ending power supply to keep filming day and night? And how did he keep from tripping in a forest at a dead run and in the dark!? And why was he filming carnage instead of helping the few survivors fight off the zombies!?
The opening "found footage" is likewise unreasonable. Who goes out in the night to investigate a "noise" with a handheld camera glued to their face instead of using a flashlight!?
This was a disjointed mess made worse by bad acting and terrible dialog and not one but two rapes!
But as far as the story goes, the most shameful act of stupidity was when the cameraman and his gang are captured by thugs.....who then take up his camera and continue filming! Yeah, that's a natural impulse.
Besides taxing all logic and reason, this was just a poorly made film on every level.
With no vehicles, they run on foot looking for any place for shelter. Eventually they come across some booby-traps and the remains of headless zombies in a wooded area. The carefully survey a cabin from a distance where a group of human bandits are watching another man sexually assault a female zombie. The deadly Goke (played by Russell Jones) comes out of the cabin and murders the man. That is when Leanne recognizes Goke and his henchman Manny as she had encountered them in the first movie.
Instead of using their weapons, Maddox and the group battle the undead by hand-to-hand combat, so the bandits won't know their location, but it is too late as Goke learns that Leanne is alive and he has a special fate for her.
I never even knew there was a movie called Zombie Diaries or that it had a sequel! I just happened to stumble across it at my local Walmart last week for only five dollars, so I thought I would give it a try as it had cool DVD cover. Well, let's just say that covers can sometimes be misleading, like Hellraiser: Revelations. Zombies Diaries 2, or also known as World of the Dead: Zombie Diaries, is a low-budget British horror film about a group of survivors trying to reach the shore to get to a ship that will rescue them. Has anybody seen Resident Evil: Afterlife? It has similar plot, except for the fact that Zombie Diaries 2 doesn't use CGI special effects and it contains more graphic situations, including a rape scene, which I could have done without. Considering its budget, the movie was nicely filmed, but I got annoyed with all the shaky camera shots. It basically follows the same zombie rules set by George A. Romero in the Night of the Living Dead. Overall, Zombie Diaries 2 is better than your typical low-budget zombie flick, but it doesn't offer anything new, especially with the predictable ending.
HEY! Put the camera down and shoot something with a gun! This movie takes place in England.
Their plan is to travel through the forest to minimize zombie contact, head for the town of Hope, on the east coast and team up with another group of supposed survivors. From there, head to Holland where there exists a large colony of uninfected people. The military is disliked by the civilians because of their role in the outbreak cleansing. They encounter zombies and other group of civilian survivors on their quest. 4 1/2 star zombie film if you loved the hand held stuff of Quarantine, otherwise it is just a 3 star zombie film as I found the camera motion annoying.
F-bomb, nudity, rape, and irony at the end.
Overall this movie is a low budget one and just be looked and viewed as such. It is what it is low budget however I thought the zombies were fair and I was able to watch it from start to end and bought it for my zombie movie collection..
