Movie Review: War of the Living Dead

zombiewarsThe week before the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold Conference and I had no time to watch a zombie movie. Sorry, War of the Living Dead, aka Zombie Wars is one I watched a few years ago. Here’s what it’s about:

“Fifty years after a world-wide zombie epidemic had begun, a small group of rebel soldiers learn that intelligent zombies have begun breeding humans for food. The soldiers plan an all-out war to rid the Earth of the flesh-eating monsters for good, as the rest of the surviving world’s population struggles to survive against the zombie hordes.”

I enjoyed this movie, and it’s memorable four years later. Basically the movie is about zombies breeding humans on a farm for food. When a group of humans find out about the farm, they plan to destroy it and kill the zombies. The movie had a decent story line and strong characters. I liked the female lead quite a bit and would love to see her in more movies. It was filmed pretty well and the acting wasn’t all that bad. It even had a pretty good ending. I read that it reminded another reviewer of a zombie planet of the apes and I have to agree. What I didn’t like, were the zombies. Bad make up job, and if they had the intelligence to breed humans they should have been a more developed character than the traditional “Night of the Living Dead” zombie.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 Bloody Brains

Please leave zombie movie suggestions in the comments. Movies must be rated below a 4 on IMDB.
