The Good:
There was one scene where a few of the survivors had to navigate through a narrow hallway filled with a mass of “dormant” zombies that had a very nice bit of tension to it.

The Bad:
Sadly that was the only really tense moments in the film. The rest of the movie was filled with well worn zombie movie cliches, incredibly bad acting, horrible effects, and terrible writing all wrapped in a embarrassingly cheap looking package.
And the time wasted on unnecessary relationship drama was so illogical and never really amounted to anything.

The Ugly
The scenes with the zombie dog were so poorly shot that it became almost comical to watch.

Final Verdict: The trailer for this film is very misleading in that it makes you think this movie is going to be much more than just some cheap, schlocky $5 bin movie and instead be a tense, scary addition to the zombie survival horror movie genre. Alas it was just a bad movie in every way and not even worth a watch just for shits and giggles.

Grade: D-
