Is it the actors or script? Looks really cheesy, so I didn't have any particular high hopes or expectations for the movie. That was realistic to me. Hiring a Press Relations firm because you need them to pull the full-Rumplestiltskin and spin your dumpster fire into gold. The special effects are decent, and the pace is brisk, however, the editing does get annoying in places. They tried to explain it in an aside that the warden liked it that way, but it was obviously an afterthought to explain the poor set.
I would recommend this movie for the story alone. The gore is pretty fun, and the whole thing almost over comes its obvious budgetary restraints to turn into something quite worthy. And as a personal gripe, fast-running zombies will never be scary. Turn your color down and it bumps it up a star. Focus Features It turns out climate change has really, really messed things up.
Gunshots poorly synchronized with video. Unfortunately, the concept was completely slaughtered by the Asylum. He tries his best to trust people in this unforgiving wasteland, but its getting harder each step. Some camera angles seem voyeouristic. It's a story we've seen many times and there is very little originality. When the movie went back to that family, what was the mother still doing holding the kids' hands?!?! The setting is a nice, new one for zombie films, and actually gets some mileage out of the fact that it's an enclosed surrounding with no way to get out.
Even the fact that they never even sound as loud as a real gun should be in the situation is a distraction. I didn't rent this with pre-conceptions of a Romero-esquire entry into the genre. I mean, how do you explain the situation and actually think people are going to believe you. Keep pumping out these gore-fests. I'm not a fan of over the top, low budget gore, but this is one of those films that makes fans of horror wish they could get some kind of budget to make a movie with their friends. .
A prisoner with a viral infection is transfered to a maximum security prison and soon prisoners and guards alike are infected and become hyper-violent zombies. I know this is a low budget film, but please put a flash on the gun when it fires. The premise works and moves the zombie theme into a new environment nicely. As it spreads through the prison, infecting more inmates and staff members, they are forced to defend themselves from the blood-thirsty zombies that have taken over the prison. Style There is a lot of reading in this story.
Electronic devices keep fritzing out, and the day refuses to turn to night. For me the movie went down the drain pretty fast after and due to the lack of scriptwriting talents few obviously infected convicts were forced to the canteen, so the hell surely broke loose. With each 'Death Page' and the 'Official Endings', you will have the chance to see how you did before quitting or going back. It isn't of the kind of quality that would have justified a theatrical release, but it is at the high end of video releases in it's genre. Apart from the script, the camera, most of the acting and especially sound work were killing the concept frame by frame. It was slightly ridiculous to see guards hold their guns at the zombies, with gunfire sounds in the scene, but with nothing coming out of the gun. Where we supposed to be moved by the melodrama of the preacher suicide? They do not recognize any authority and destroy all who will be on their way.
It was so perfect match of time, picture and sound, although this trick is not a novelty check e. This could make a pretty good undead musical. I have seen dozens of zombie movies, maybe more. There just wasn't anything going on that was more important at the time. Director Peter Mervis makes good use of the prison setting and the tight script by Mike Watt making this one of the better efforts by prolific, but wildly inconsistent, team at The Asylum. However, the movie is built on a fairly weak plot, so don't expect any real brain-twisters throughout this movie. Like fellow B-movie homage Mars Attacks! I enjoyed the humor in the movie provided by Sweeney and his unhappiness in shooting staff.
The action and the gore more than makes up for the lack of a solid plot in the movie. A man infected with a strange virus while wiping out a houseful of zombies is arrested and placed in a maximum-security prison. The dialog is only in synch about 60% of the time. Where most direct to video zombie films couldn't even get an audience to sit through them, much less get a screening at even the most remote film festival, this film would more than likely draw a crowd and have gotten good reviews. I recognize some names involved- Scott Carson Who we interviewed last time ,Mike Watt who wrote it and Eric Spudic who did zombie cameo. Travis is sent visibly ill to the Harwood Maximum Security Prison and the Security Officer Sweeny Chriss Anglin sends the inmate to the infirmary.
Production: A Focus Features release of a Kill the Head Production, in association with Animal Kingdom, Film i Väst. And Danny Boice is dumber than a brain-eating zombie. This movie is simply a fun art project. Last but not the least, there are many bad acting among the unknown cast. I couldn't make it through the Da Vinci Code.
The writing isn't even worth mentioning. While they are having a conversation, they are informed that Travis has been transferred to the solitary confinement and his infected blood has caused an outbreak among the prisoners and guards. Danny Boice, dead man walking. Vomit projectiles both thick and chunky. Nope, not the Sean Penn film where he plays a killer with hair so fantastic it deserved it's own billing, but a play on the prison term used when someone walks the 'Green Mile'. His 2014 film Only Lovers Left Alivefound a similar world-weariness in a different species of the undead, alienating two vampires from humanity instead of two humans from the monsters surrounding them. There are a few plot holes, such as why there's a family hanging out in a prison for no apparent reason.
