ZOMBIE MOVIES – Dead End (2003)

The moment Dead End starts you will recognize Ray Wise who plays the dad. He’s been in a ton of movies and television shows over the last thirty or forty years. He’s one of those actors you recognize, even if you don’t know his name.

The movie is basically a long car drive while a family fights, and then slowly get murdered after they pick up a strange hitchhiker. Is she a zombie? Well, it was suggested to me based off of liking zombie movies, but this is really a horror thriller, which earns it a 0 out of 100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Dance of the Dead (2008)

I was pleasantly surprised with how well made Dance of the Dead was. It was campy, fun, and had lots of zombies in it, making this a perfect Sunday afternoon Zombie movie.

It’s almost time for prom, and the town’s teens are excited, or dreading, prom, depending on their social status. Little do they know that prom isn’t the biggest thing that’s about to go down.

The local nuclear power plant has leaked something into the ground, something that brings the dead back to life.

The good…

  • Well done special effects.
  • An actual story! There was an actual plot to follow.
  • The dancing/music bit wasn’t overdone. It was just right.
  • Zombie frogs, need I say more?
  • The gun toting C4 packing gym teacher. I think I had him in high school actually.
  • The dork gets to kiss the hottie.
  • The other members of the sci fi club look like they might be getting lucky.

The bad…

  • The hottie was already bitten and bites his tongue off as the dork is kissing her.

Dance of the Dead isn’t the best zombie movie ever made, but it was entertaining and enjoyable, which earned it a 72/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – State of Emergency (2011)

State of Emergency starts off strong. A man (Jim) and his wife fleeing until her injuries make them pause. Jim watches as his wife passes away. He’s in shock. Something horrible is happening, and while he knows he needs to hole up, he doesn’t yet know how bad it is.

Jim finds a barn, and after pulling his dead wife into a stall, Jim proceeds to explore, only to hear something moving somewhere. He thinks everything is okay when he sees a cat, but the relief is short lived. When he returns to the main hallway he sees muddy foot prints.

There are a few things I really liked about State of Emergency. One of them was that they never pulled the “wife” card. It would have been expected, and would have made the movie less enjoyable for me. The other was the quality of Jim’s character, and the suspense around surviving as he comes to grips with a world with new dangers, and new rules.

This is not a zombie hordes movie. This is a zombie suspense movie with just a few zombies that drive the story, and that part well well done. The honest truth is that until we meet the 2nd group of survivors that Jim pairs up with, the movie was on its way to getting a score in the 90’s.

What happened? The acting once Jim meets the second group of survivors goes down hill fast. Scott (played by Scot Lilly) was really rough around the edges. I’m guessing this was really early in his career and he didn’t have much screen time before this? His scenes really feel like he reading cue cards above the cameraman’s head.

How much did that bad acting hurt the movie? Well, it was still enjoyable and I watched it until the end, and actually liked it. The story was well written and the characters themselves were well rounded, which earned State of Emergency a 73/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombieland: Double Tap (2019)

I was so excited to see Zombieland: Double Tap. The first Zombieland movie is one of my all time favorite movies, and I usually watch it at least once a year, more if I am on a lot of planes for work. I bought my tickets the moment I was able to early in the week (thinking it would sell out quickly) and arrived with bated breath.

The movie opens with a bit of nostalgia with Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) giving a voice over while explaining how the world has changed since the last time we saw him. The zombies have evolved, and the survivors have to fight harder to stay alive.

Zombieland: Double Tap is a good movie. It is funny and has several good action sequences. It suffers from having to try and live up to the first movie though. What I mean by that is if it were a stand alone, first movie, I probably would have given it a 93/100, however, having to live up to, and thus be compared to the first movie, costs it 10 points. An 83/100 is a good movie, its just not the epic movie the first one was.

I put that above so if you want to go see it and make up your own mind you can, before we get to spoilers. Be warned, I’m going to give spoilers now. Stop reading if you don’t want to know details before seeing Zombieland: Double Tap.

So what cost Double Tap points? The love story between Wichita and Columbus and the way it played out. They got in a rut since the last movie, and she decides to do exactly what she did in the first movie, and run. It felt weak to me. Then add in the cute but annoying Madesin (Zoey Deutch) and somehow Wichita is allowed to be a pain when Columbus bangs the only other girl he doesn’t consider family after she disappears for a month? The little love triangle was annoying to me and felt like weak writing.

The other thing I found really hard to enjoy was the jump in age for Little Rock. In the last movie she was a cute kid, and please, Abigail Breslin, forgive me if your reading this. You are a sweet beautiful young lady, but seeing you in my mind as that pre teen, and then now as a girl who wants to smoke pot and have a boyfriend was hard for me to enjoy. My brain was expecting that sassy pre teen, and it made it hard for me to watch your scenes, because I kept having to remind myself that you grew up. Maybe if there had been a movie in the middle and the jump was smaller it wouldn’t twist my mind up so much.

The last thing that I thought took away from the movie was the way the Babylon commune didn’t believe in guns and how that forced a non gun based finale – which I felt was just a little silly.

Woody, Jesse, Abigail, and Emma, please don’t let an 83/100 make you think I didn’t enjoy the movie. I did, and you guys are awesome. Now go start making Zombieland 3!!!!

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Within the Woods of Undead County (2016)

Within the Woods of Undead County follows the classic zombie movie rules, which is something I actually like. The main character, Jocelyn, is at home when she realizes something isn’t quite right. Her friend bangs on the door, kicking off the zombie fun.

The town is being overrun, and the only chance at surviving is to flee to the countryside of Pennsylvania. The movie is shot in a grainy style which I think is paying homage to some of Jay Romero’s original works. It has the old film feel to it.

Is the movie any good?

I guess it all depends on how much you expect from it. Within the Woods of Undead County feels like a well funded college student film created by a few good old boys from Pennsylvania. It’s not ground breaking, but its not horrible. It’s watchable, but not a movie you’ll ever watch twice, which earns Within the Woods of Undead County a 49 out of 100.

One fact I did find interesting was that they had a difficult time finding a female lade, so Gabriella Harry, who was supposed to be a producer, stepped up to play the female lead. Gabriella, if your out there, did you think about cutting the opening scene where your getting out of bed? It was tasteful, but it felt like you were hesitant and uncomfortable putting on pants on film.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Rampant (2018)

It was last night when I started to watch Rampant. I was tired, but couldn’t sleep, and randomly picked a zombie movie to watch, and then, when I was tired, I couldn’t turn it off. Rampant takes place in mid evil Korea, and has the perfect combination of a good story, great fight scenes, and best of all, rampaging zombies.

Sure, the movie is in mandarin Korean, so you have to read, but it is well worth the sub titles for the quality of the overall movie.

Did that cost the movie 9 points? No, even though this movie is in sub titles, the only thing that cost it points were a few stretches of story that didn’t have enough zombies. If they’d cut twenty minutes out, the movie would have scored a 100 instead of a 91/100.

FYI, if your looking for the movie on IMDB you want to search for Chang-gwol, the original South Korean title.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Day Of The Dead (2008)

Day of the Dead (2008) is a remake of George A. Romero’s 1985 film by the same name, and is exactly what a zombie movie should be. An outbreak takes place in a small town and the military is sent in to contain the infection, but things don’t go quite as planned.

Mena Suvari plays the main character, Sarah Bowman, who is dispatched back to her home town with her military unit to help contain whatever is going on in town.

Sarah, realizing that something bad may be going on, leaves her post to go check on her brother and mother. That sets off a chain reaction of events that lead to some of my favorite scenes in the movie.

Part of watching zombie movies is the desire to see the moment when the infection goes rampant and things go crazy. Day of the Dead did an awesome job of turning the hospital, and Sarah’s escape from it, into a violent orgy of zombie violence.

The makers of the movie understood the basic premise that George A. Romero was going for. Make people run, and those who don’t get eaten. It’s a basic principle that too many zombie movies forget.

If you haven’t seen Day of the Dead yet, I highly recommend it, the movie earned its 90/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Antisocial (2013)

I picked Antisocial at random. Completely at random.

I should not gamble.

Don’t get me wrong. The acting wasn’t bad, the actors actually were quite good at their jobs. The issue is really just comes down to the pace of the movie, and what should have been the focus. In terms of pace, there is very little action until almost a half hour in, that is just too slow of a build up for this type of movie.

On the focus front, I wanted to see a bunch of people defending the house from waves of zombies, not watch a suspense/thriller about what is causing the violence.

If the writers had actually made a movie about surviving in the house, this movie could have been so much better.

Having said that, they did make a sequel, and I’m hoping they take off from the end of this movie, and make it a pure Zombie Apocalypse movie. We’ll find out next weekend, so keep your fingers crossed.

I won’t ruin the “twist”, but its not hard to see it coming. I did watch the whole movie, so it is watchable, it just isn’t what a zombiephile is really looking for, so its gets a 32/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Soon ENough (2018)

Soon Enough is an independent horror film that revolves around a group of college students in Montevallo, Alabama who are forced to survive the zombie apocalypse.

Independent films can sometimes be gems. Sometimes they are a mix of good and bad. Soon Enough has the feel of a college project. The sound quality and acting is rough, but at the same time, I want to applaud the creators for doing their thing. The only way to get better at something is to work on your craft.

Soon Enough was barely watchable for me, but I’m hoping that the people behind it continue to work on their craft. I want to see the 3/100 that this film gets skyrocket when they make their next zombie movie.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombie Apocalypse (2011)

Zombie Apocalypse was a made for TV movie, and while it does have some big name stars like VIng Rhames and Eddie Steeples, the script and overall level of special effects are about what you would expect from a made for TV movie.

The special effects are mostly C+ and I honestly enjoyed the action scenes for maybe the wrong reasons. Like when the double barrel shotgun appears to have more than two shots, or a gun aimed at a stomach blows a zombies head off.

Buy hey, the point is to be entertained right?

There were some good survival notes though. I liked the no going anywhere alone rule, because that always drives me crazy when people are in a high danger environment, and people decide to wander off on their own.

I also liked that unlike other zombie worlds, where you wonder why people don’t just drive around in a combine, all electronics are basically useless in this world because the government set of EMP’s to kill modern transportation when they were trying to slow down the infection.

Overall I would save Zombie Apocalypse for a rainy day when you have nothing else to do. It’s not the best zombie movie ever made, but its not the worst ever, which earned it a 64/100.

Things I Liked:

  • When an ice-skate was used as a throwing star in the sporting goods store.
  • The “Thriller” effect for the zombies. How many of the zombies watched “Thriller” right before they went into their fight scenes? A lot of them had that lurching walk and crooked hands just like the music video.
  • Heavy machine gun being fired with no recoil, and the belt not moving – but shells are being ejected because of CGI.
