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.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Dead (2010)

The Dead kicks off like every good zombie movie should. The biting starts and all hell breaks loose as the surprised populace begins to process the realities of the world they now live in .

Soldiers are fleeing in a plane, clearly having been overrun by the undead, but the plane isn’t in great shape, and ends up going down in the ocean. Three survivors make it to the beach only to have a horde come down on them.

The main character, Lieutenant Brian Murphy, played by Rob Freeman, does an excellent job of playing the quiet, controlled soldier, trying to survive so he can get back to his wife and daughter. He travels through the desert, quietly trying to survive as he navigates a world that is full of the undead.

When he finally finds a car, he is forced to race the clock, can he get the vehicle fueled and get a tire on the truck before the undead can get him? As Lieutenant Murphy travels, he partners with another soldier, also looking trying to get back to his family.

This is a classic zombie movie, and it is well done. There aren’t a massive amount of special effects, but the movie was well done, and stays true to itself. There are long stretches without any dialogue, but that is just fine. Who watches a zombie movie for the dialogue anyway?

If you are looking for a solid, enjoyable zombie movie to watch, you can’t go wrong with The Dead , which scores it a very respectable 76/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Zombie Hunter (2013)

Zombie Hunter is a script written by a twelve zombie lover. Don’t get me wrong though, that isn’t always a bad thing. You have the bad ass, a few hot chicks, a few other survivors, and Danny Trejo – who is in the movie for what I think is a total of 5 minutes. I think it was all they could afford, it is a B movie after all.

If your in the mood for a silly, classic, B Zombie Movie, then Zombie Hunter is just the flick for you, and it scores a 70/100 because of it.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Hostile (2017)

Hostile tells the story of Juliet, played by Brittany Ashworth, as she tries to survive in the post apocalyptic world. Food and resources are scarce, and at night the “Reapers” come out to hunt for food. The movie starts out strong, with Juliet scavenging.

Things are looking good for Hostile at this point, at least until Juliet swerves off a dirt road and flips her truck, and breaks her leg. This is where the movie really went south. There are long flashbacks revealing her addiction, and her previous relationship with the man who helped save her from heroine.

This would all be fine, except it really broke the rhythm of the movie. What could have been a classic zombie survival movie turned into a strange Romeo and Juliet (at least they didn’t name the male character Romeo) story.

The ending was as bad as it was predictable, and I’m being generous when giving it a 40/100. There are better zombie movies out there, and this is one you should skip.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Another World (2014)

When Another World started I was so psyched. It had all the things I want in a zombie movie. It is the end of the world, the undead are roaming and humanity is on the brink of dying. The two main characters have a mission, and it is simpler, kill as many of the undead as they can. They set up ambushes, lure the undead in, and then blow the hell out of the biters.

I honestly could have watched a movie just built around that simple, hunt and kill, premise. As the duo moves on to another target, the female leads enter the picture. They aren’t the reason the movie takes a turn for the worse, at least not directly, but when they join, the conversations get more involved, and the writer/director felt the need to try and give the characters “deeper motivations”. How did that work out? Let me graph for it for:

Did I need to add the color? No, but I liked the way it looked. This movie did not need a complicated back story. It was a Zombie Movie and should have been about surviving, and killing zombies. We didn’t need the additional, very predictable, origin story. This movie would have been so much better if it just followed the pattern set in the first ten or fifteen minutes of the movie. Survivors find other survivors, they train them how to fight, and then the movie ends with an epic zombie horde coming down on the survivors.

This was a budget movie, but the fight scenes were well done. If Another World had gone a slightly different direction, it could have been a sleeper hit, but as it was, it reached too far, and fell flat on its face.

So how did it rank overall? I’m giving it a 35/100, but the honest truth is that 34 of those points are just because of the first fifteen minutes of the movie.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Range 15 (2016)

I’m always looking for new Zombie movies to enjoy. Sometimes I’m shocked by how good a movie is. Sometimes I’m shocked that someone actually paid people to act, and then released some of these movies. Range 15 is so bad I’m not sure how it got made, or even more amazingly, how they got the long list of huge actors who had cameos to actually do them. Sean Astin, Danny Trego, William Shatner, Bryan Callen, all make appearances, and play small parts. Ron Jeremy was also in the movie, bu the does porn, so I’m assuming that if you pay him, he’ll be there. The shocking thing is that the others agreed to do it.

What was this movie? It sounded like an okay start. A group of ex military men get locked up after a huge party, and then find the world has been taken over by the undead. The premise was better than the movie ever was. The only thing that I can figure out is that someone was really good friends with people in high places, or have pictures of someone in Hollywood in compromising positions.

How bad was this movie? At one part the main character has sex with an armless girl, and the visual humor and her trying to pick up a pair of keys with no arms was just offensive.

I don’t mind a bit of crude humor now and then, but this movie tried too hard, and clearly tried really hard to cross the line, which they did, but not in any way that was funny.

Jokes about love dolls, gay sex, and people having sex with zombies? This movie has it all, but sadly, none of it was funny. I think they meant it to be, but it was just so over the top it wasn’t enjoyable. Take a scene where the main character gets bitten, and his buddies need to give him the cure, which they discovered was in a batch of whiskey – which was mixed with viper semen. The virus was moving too quickly, so the only choice they had was to give it to him rectally. I’m sure it sounded funny during the read through, but it was just horrible to watch.

Do how did Range 15 rank? It earned a 2/100, and the only thing that could have made it worse was if it was shot in first person and made me motion sick on top of not being funny.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Daylight’s End (2016)

Daylight’s End takes the classic end of the world zombie apocalypse and adds in a bit of vampire lore. The sun hurts the undead, and they swarm at night. The world has been overrun, but there are survivors, fighting over what’s left of the world. One of those survivors, Rourke, helps a female scavenger after her group of survivors was ambushed by other scavengers. In return she offers Rourke gas and ammo if she takes her back to her home base.

It turns out that home base isn’t as safe as she thought, and the undead aren’t as brainless as they seemed. Rourke agrees to try to help her, and her group of survivors, but of course nothing is ever easy in the apocalypse.

At just over an hour and forty minutes long, the movie played to its strengths and didn’t put a lot of filler in. So how does Daylight’s End stack up? It is a very watchable movie, and is true to itself. It isn’t ground breaking, but it is a good movie, and earns a 71/100. If you haven’t seen it, add it to your list and let me know what you think.

Zombie Movies – Serenity (2005)

Is Serenity a zombie movie? It sure is. The Federation has unleashed the Reavers on the universe after experimenting with weaponizing modified humans. What could go wrong right?

Sure, there is an awesome plot that revolves around the crew of the
Serenity, and the movie not a classical zombie movie, so I am going to deduct a point for that. Which leaves Serenity with an almost perfect 99/100.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching this classic, make it a priority, you won’t regret it.

Zombie Movies – I Am Legend (2007)

Is I Am Legend a zombie movie? There is a virus that turns people into hungry animals that eat other humans. That qualifies as a zombie flick in my book.

I Am Legend is one of those movies I usually end up watching about once a year. So why am a giving it an 80/100? The main reason is that they never made a sequel. I feel like this world deserved a sequel, or better yet, a survival story taking place when the infection first started.

Will Smith plays Robert Neville, and his slow crawl into the edges of madness so amazingly well. The movie hits you in the guts at times, but also delivers on the action and the horror of what a post apocalyptic world would be like.

If you haven’t seen I Am Legend in a while, or somehow missed it, you need to go watch it right now.

Zombie Movies – Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018)

The world has been overrun by the undead, but a small military base has taken in a small group of survivors. Day of the Dead: Bloodline has a couple subplots, but its basically about a stalker turned zombie, turned stalker still.

All the classic horror movie tropes are included. The vents are big enough and strong enough to support crawling about in, security is incredibly tight, but falls apart in a heartbeat.

Oh, and the zombies are getting smart, or at least some of them are.

If the movie started at the hour mark and was just the last thirty minutes I would have ranked it higher. I want hordes of zombies when I watch a zombie movie, not a single zombie stalker hunting the main character. Which is why I’m giving Day of the Dead: Bloodline a 51/100. It was watchable, but it’s not a movie I’d watch twice, if that makes any sense.
