Judge David Johnson wants to marry zombie movies.
Who said the Greeks weren't twisted bastards?
Well, I don't know if anyone has ever said that. But if you do run across someone who spouts such lies, you need only point them toward this blood-soaked zombie extravaganza.
Facts of the Case
Three spelunking friends are traipsing through a cave when a POV shot hits them in the face. A few hours later, they turn into flesh-eating ghouls, and attack everyone around them. Thing is, the illness is contagious, so, very quickly, the entire populace is consumed with this zombie madness.
A ragtag group of survivors (genre law mandates that the protagonists in zombie movies are always considered "ragtag") desperately tries to fend off the rampaging hordes, leaping from holdout to holdout, and fighting back when the zombies eventually breach the defenses.
What transpires is a sequence of gore-soaked set-pieces, a foot fetish scene and the world record for beheadings in a low-budget Greek horror film.
This little horror germ was a surprise. It's the farthest thing form an original concept, but as per the play-by-play of zombie splatter films dictates, Evil executes with panache. The title bites though. Let's look at the rundown:
• The Gore Factor
• The Humor
• The Swiftly Paced Nihilism
Nothing much to report, presentation-wise: a budget-looking, non-anamorphic widescreen transfer, still gallery and trailer. Yee-haw.
Stream-of-consciousness splatter. Take it or leave it.
Grab a mop and get to work. Oh, and not guilty.
