Here are my reviews for the first week of the zombie movie marathon Gaynor Stenson and I are doing over at the Vamplit Blog. You can read both my and her reviews over there too.
This will be quick. First of all, I’m glad I spared my son on this one and watched it alone. Yes, Zombie Nation rates with some of the worst horror movies I’ve seen. Yes, the acting sucked. The set looked like it was put together by garbage pickers. The script either confuses you or the characters tell you exactly what was going on. I did like the idea behind the movie, with the serial murderer’s victims coming back as traditional zombies. What baffles me the most is this is the worst rated movie on Netflix, but still there are 15 pages of bad reviews on Zombie Nation. I guess I’ll leave it at that and give it 1 out of 5 bloody brains like everyone else.
Infection has a cool cover, huh? Much better than the actual “things” that infect humans, which were more insect like. This movie wasn’t horrible, but it was not a zombie movie as far as I’m concerned, which is why I give it 1 out of 5 bloody brains. Everything about the movie felt a bit toned down, and a lot of the problem was the music that stayed at a consistent level and actually helped to make the film boring. My son’s response to the movie was, “I don’t know. I was half asleep.
Heads up, next week’s movies include: Raiders of the Damned, Dead Heist, Oasis of the Zombies, Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill, Day of the Dead (2008), Edges of Darkness, Zombie Island Massacre
