ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 13, Duel

Duel is such an ominous name isn’t it? I can’t wait to see who the duelists are? Warren vs The Man? Warren vs Murphy? The Man vs Murphy? There are so many options!

The episode starts with Addy finding Lucy down by the docks.

Addy tries to get Lucy to flee before The Man returns, but the kid isn’t as old as she looks and still acts like a spoiled brat, which gives The Man time to return and put Addy through the ringer before Lucy flees, forcing The Man and Addy to both chase after her instead of fight each other.

Addy Getting A Beat Down

Addy tries to reach Lucy, but gets trapped on a burning boat as he flees with the kid, forcing Addy to run for her life before the boat goes up in a ball of flames.

Boom Goes The Boat

Addy thinks she’s lost the trail but Lucy uses her Zombie control to have a dismembered arm point in her direction once again.

Even beat up and hurt, Addy still can’t help but smile as she leaves Doc a note, and some Z weed before heading back after The Man.

Addy Took A Beating

With a little bit of corner cutting Addy is able to get in front of The Man and doesn’t screw around with the Z Whacker this time, instead opting to just put a few bullets in him.

The Man Goes Down

Addy rescues Lucy, but for some reason doesn’t put a bullet in The Man’s head before driving away.

Safe for the moment, Addy stops to get Lucy some new clothing, and is forced to tell Lucy that her mother is dead, which doesn’t go over well with the kid. This leads to Lucy telling Addy that the Zombies still have thoughts, and remember things like their names. Addy thinks the kid is making it up, but isn’t quite sure.

The really bad news? All this lollygagging gives The Man the time he needs to catch back up and take Lucy from Addy. This leads to another face off between Addy and The Man, and quite honestly, Addy is outmatched.

Addy Gets Another Beatdown

Addy ends up with what looks like a broken or dislocated arm and The Man gets away again with Lucy.

Once in the car the stress makes Lucy age again, and The Man is not happy to have to deal with a teenager.

Back at the river, Addy is up, but she’s in a lot of pain and can only just barely defend herself and is forced to put her shoulder back in the socket with a brutal smack into a tree.

While Addy is suffering, Doc is having a much better time, hallucinating about Back to the Future due to the high quality Z Weed Addy left behind for him.

While Addy is suffering, The Man is on a search for chocolate for Lucy, not quite realizing why its such a priority until she freaks out. She thinks she’s dying when she starts to, well, menstruate.

Lucy Is Growing Up

Emboldened by her realization that The Man is afraid of Zombies, Lucy steals The Man’s truck and makes her way out to the forest road to pick up Addy. Lucy thinks she killed the man when she ran him over, but he’s one tough b*stard and is just holding onto the bottom.

Once again The Man has Lucy and Addy is not looking too good.

Addy Takes A Beating But Refuses To Give Up

Duel ends with Addy stealing another truck and picking up Doc who is bicycling after her. He looks like he wants to cry when he sees how hurt she is but instead he gets in the truck so they can keep following The Man.

In the end, I totally guessed wrong. The Duel was between Addy and The Man, and she put up one hell of a fight. Duel scored a 90/100 and is Worth Your Time. It was pretty much non stop on the action front and had a ton of really good fight scenes, even if Addy was getting her butt kicked in most of them.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 11, Doc’s Angels

Doc’s Angels opens with Kaya watching Enders killing Zombies as she eats some snacks. Citizen Z comes over and comments on how empty the world seems, which leads to a touching moment where Kaya takes his hand and he presses it to his lips.

Kaya Giving Citizen Z Some Emotional Support

We then cut over to Doc who is moving across open ground until he sees what looks like a castle in the background as he listens to a strange radio broadcast on his handheld.

Castle In The Distance

Doc’s not very into the ground when he encounters what appear to be Bedazzled Zombies. Not only do they sparkle, but they also add some armor, because Doc’s handgun doesn’t do much damage.

The Zombies corner Doc and wound him, but thankfully don’t manage to get a bite in. When Doc wakes up he’s been bandaged and dressed in clean clothes, and there are three woman watching him sleep.

Doc’s Angels?

The three seem nice as they put balm on his wounds, give him a back massage, and do his hair up in a nice man bun. At least they seem nice until he tries to use their radio and we see they cut the radio wire under the desk.

With the radio not working the woman feed Doc, while telling him that they have set up the whole compound on their own. The women seem to be in competition for Doc’s attention, but the bald girl steps it up by rubbing his inner thigh with her foot.

Doc gets to see just how crazy the women are when its time to feed their pets. As the girls are working with their pets Doc almost gets eaten but thanks to his quick reflexes he takes out the sparkling Zombie instead.

As the girls entertain Doc, he starts to realize that he should get moving, but the offer of some weed distracts him from his original thought. When he goes to bed he gets three visits, the first two are openly flirty while the bald woman is scary flirty, bringing Doc a sword. In the end, Doc gives in to temptation, and wakes up the next morning after what I can only assume is an exhausting night.

Post Foursome Napping

Doc apparently wore the girls out because he’s the first one up in the morning and discovers the radio’s transmission wire is cut just before the girls find him.

As he’s fleeing he realizes the girls have been using humans to make “art”. They have a row of skulls and couches and lamp shades made out of leather, human leather. The girls did tell him they make everything locally. As Doc flees he finds the torture dungeon, or as doc says, the Hobby Lobby of hell.

Hobby Lobby Of Hell

With their secret known, the girls put on their gimp masks and confront Doc as he comes out of the basement.

Gimp Masks On

Doc is getting his *ss kicked until the other dungeon prisoners come to his rescue. Doc uses the distraction to get back to the radio so he can tell Citizen Z that Lucy is alive, but has been taken captive by The Man. Citizen Z has to get the message to Warren.

The girls break into the radio room before Doc can tell Citizen Z where he is but Doc has escaped up the radio tower, treed by the girls and their pet Zombies. Doc just barely escapes by using the towers height to drop him over the fence when it collapses.

Doc’s Angels ends with Doc fleeing back across open ground before we cut over to Kaya telling Citizen Z that she cracked the encrypted sat phone transmission they picked up earlier. They know where The Man is going to be after he called for a helicopter to pick him and Lucy up. Now Citizen Z and Kaya just need to get the information to Warren so she can do something about it.

Doc’s Angels wasn’t really about the Zombies, so I have to give it a 70/100, even though it was all about Doc, who is one of my favorites.


Things I Loved About This Episode

  • The creepy music really set the mood throughout the episode.
  • Doc’s Bedazzled Zombie Kill.
  • Doc talking about how 10K is the closest thing he has to a son. It was a one liner, but it was very touching.
  • The crazy girl talking about Columbian neck ties and her third husband, which was pre Zombie. I loved the look of worry and fear on Doc’s face as he realized she was nuts.
  • Rabbit Milk – “I milked it myself.”
  • The girls putting Doc’s beard hair in their book.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Dead Don’t Die (2019)

The first thing you are going to notice about The Dead Don’t Die is the all star cast. It is just jam packed with A List actors. Bill Murray plays Chief Cliff Robertson. He’s clearly been a fixture of the town for decades and knows just about everyone while Adam Driver plays Officer Ronnie Peterson.

I’m going to describe The Dead Don’t Die as quirky. Up until the thirty minute mark I was thinking this might have been an art house piece where the zombies were going to be some type of symbolic representation of society, but no, we get to see two women get eaten in the diner right around the thirty minute mark.

Diner Snacks

Once the Zombies start showing up things rapidly get out of control. The town is overrun, and no one is safe. Ronnie has been saying throughout the movie that things are going to end badly, and he’s absolutely right. Almost everyone dies, but even worse, the movie just kind of takes a hard left that didn’t make any sense to me (even in a spoof) and then ended in a very predictable way.

The Dead Don’t Die scored a 43/100, making it a Rainy Day Movie.

What cost it points? At about the 1:30 mark Ronnie breaks the 4rth wall when Chief Robertson asked him why he’s been so sure the whole time that things would end up badly, and Ronnie tells him its because the script. When I’m watching movies, I don’t want to be reminded that its a movie. The only thing that really earned this movie points was Bill Murray, he can take pretty much anything and make it worth giving it a try. There were some amazing moments, which got The Dead Don’t Die the points it received, but overall I didn’t feel like it had a story that worked. Why the hell was the mortician an Alien? It didn’t feel like it fit to me, even in a spoofy movie.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 9, Heart Of Darkness

Heart of Darkness opens with Citizen Z and Kaya back on the air, calling out to anyone, everyone, and especially the Operation Bite Mark team. As Kaya in the Skya is speaking, her broadcast is interrupted, overpowered by a stronger signal. Murphy has just gone on the air, announcing he has the Zombie vaccine.

Radio Free Murphy

As Murphy is putting out his message Warren tries to get into Murphytown to snatch him while he’s vulnerable (pooping) but is thwarted by Zombies, resulting in Warren deciding they have to get help, no matter where it might come from. Regardless of what Hector advises, Warren is going to try and get the imposter EScorpion and his Red Hand band to help them.

As Team Warren is looking for the Red Hand they encounter a car full of car thieves the Red Hand “punished” before running into Hopper, who is willing to take them to the Red Hand. He says he doesn’t work for them, he’s just their drug dealer, but he seems very sketchy to me.

Hopper leads Warren, Hector, and Dr. Sun Mei into the sewers under Seattle. As they walk deeper into the darkness they hear what they think are rats, but when they shine their lights on the walls they see its Zombie Hands, still crawling about, maybe searching for their bodies.

Handy Hands

As Team Warren delves deeper into Seattle’s underground, Murphy is trying to bribe 10K with more vaccine, claiming it will free 10K from his control. 10K refuses, not willing to give up Warren. 10K is lead away to do manual labor as punishment. Shortly after, Citizen Z tries to reach out to Murphy, having tracked him down because of his broadcast, but Murphy doesn’t want anything to do with Operation Bite Mark.

In Seattle’s underground, we get a taste of how crazy the Red Hand is. They’ve rigged up barbed wire and some electric to put the “Guilty” to death, or at least the Red Hand says they are guilty. We then get to meet the new EScorpion.

The EScorpion Imposter

Javier Vasquez, the DEA agent whose wife and child were killed by Hector, the real EScorpion, has apparently lost his mind. He appears to think he really is EScorpion.

It seems like Warren might be reaching Javier but once she says his name he get’s pissed and has her thrown into the lockup like Hector and Dr. Sun Mei.

Things take a strange turn after Warren gets put in the same cell as Hector. He chokes her out and disappears. Why did he choke her out if he could escape?

When Javier has Warren and Dr. Sun Mei brought to him Hector attacks, trying to take out Javier. Hector ends up being subdued by Red Hand men, which gives Hector the chance to remind Javier who both of them are. With the pain of his wife and child’s death thrown up in his face by Hector, Javier has his men let Hector loose so he can kill him in a “fair” fight.

Hector get’s stabbed multiple times before Warren steps in, putting a machete through Javier before taking his head, putting him out of his misery. The king is dead, long live the king. With Javier/EScorpion dead, the Read Hand apparently falls into Warren’s control, or at least it looks that way by the trucks we see rolling out, presumably to go after warren.

The end of the episode has two major revelations. The first is that Doc and Addy have found Lucy, and she looks older than she should be.

Lucy

We see one of Lucy’s warders shoot a double barrel before the scene cuts back to Hectors body on the floor. Which leads us to the final revelation of the episode as his eyes open, tinged with yellow.

Heart of Darkness scored a 70/100, mainly due to its lack of any significant Zombie violence.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 8, Election Day

Election Day starts with a nice squish as we see several survivors rolling down the road in an RV and taking out several Zombies in the process.

RV Versus Zombies

After we see the Zombies lose to the RV, we cut over to Doc and 10K, stranded on the side of the road, at least until the Presidential Motorcade comes rolling along.

Presidential Motorcade

Or if it’s not the president, it is at least Sketchy and Skeezy, and they have stolen Clinton’s limo from his presidential museum and are using it, combined with a few new dance partners, to grift what they can from survivors.

Dance party

While Sketchy and Skeezy are running their con, a young woman comes up, begging for help. Her husband and a bunch of other survivors are sick. Sketchy ignores her, but Doc offers to take a look, even if there isn’t much he can do. The sick all have strange yellow streaking through their eyes.

Yellow Fever?

As Sketchy & Skeezy deal with their presidential competition, we see the RV from the opening scenes approaching town from one direction as a small horde comes in from the other.

The Zombies arrive just in time to interfere with Skeezy’s presidential debate which leads to a presidential zombie hunt, which of course means Addy had to step in to save the day.

Hammer Time

As Addy kicks some Zombie *ss Doc has found the source of the yellow eye disease. The filter on the town’s reservoir had a Zombie head in it. Lucky for the town’s survivors, Doc watched some Naked & Afraid before the apocalypse and shows the town’s mayor how to fix it using charcoal.

We then find out who the men in the RV are. They’ve been scammed by the fake presidents and want some revenge.

Election Day ends with Doc and Addy using the chaos to escape in the stolen presidential limo. It’s time for them to get back to their main mission of finding Lucy.

Election Day was a fun episode with some good Zombie kills, which is always a plus. Election Day scored 80/100, making it Worth Your Time.


Things I Loved About This Episode:

  • The opening RV Zombie Kill.
  • The way Addy checked out the dancing girls.
  • Addy going to town on the Zombie with a mallet.
  • Zombie pom pom girls.
  • The fact that Doc won the election at the end.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 7, Welcome to Murphytown

Welcome to Murphytown kicks off with a violent interlude as The Man takes out a zombie with what looks like an oversized boomerang before cutting off the zombie’s arm.

Immediately after, we see a pack of Zombie Children being used to run down a haggard looking man until they have him treed.

Treed By The Zombie Kids

With his fate sealed, the man is then forced join Murphy and his crew as they work on bringing Murphytown fully online. As Murphy’s men are vaccinating new members, The Man can be seen sneaking into camp.

While Murphy is building his new society Doc and 10K are working their way down the highway, at least until they are lucky enough to bump into Team Warren.

Doc Brining 10K Home

With Team Warren reunited, 10K gives them the news that Murphy is building a following and effectively making other survivors into his slaves by biting or injecting them with Murphy Vaccine.

Car Thieves Pay With Their Lives

As Team Warren moves towards Murphytown they discover an interesting gas station/boat dock. There are multiple dead zombies about and an interesting sign. Someone is still claiming to be El Scorpion.

While 10K is fighting off Murphy’s mind control and the team is trying to figure out what is in Murphy’s booster shots, Citizen Z and his new Eskimo family have made their way back to Camp Northern Light with the hopes of bringing it back online now that he has some help.

Meanwhile Murphy has recognized The Man and had him brought to him. I guess to make sure the wound is real, Murphy gets his finger into the wound.

The Man Getting Murphied

The Man tells Murphy he’s not working for his old bosses, and just wants to be a part of whatever Murphy is building. When challenged on his loyalties, Murphy tells The Man he needs fresh brains – for his research.

Brains

The man goes one step further by eating the brains after Murphy commands him to do so. Murphy now has a professional to acquire brains for snacking on.

After The Man leaves Murphy asks his lieutenant if he’s sure The Man got the vaccine. As Murphy is being assured The Man got the vaccine we see a flashback of The Man using the Zombie Arm he acquired in the very opening scenes of the episode along with a jacket to fake getting the vaccine then cut back to the current timeline to watch as The Man barfs up the brains he just ate.

As Team Warren splits up to take care of Murphy and his daughter, we see The Man luring Murphy into a false sense of security by delivering on his promise of bringing brains. As Murphy is chowing down The Man makes his move, taking Murphy captive at gunpoint.

Brains, It’s What’s For Dinner

At least until Murphy’s blends save him.

As Addy and Doc are driving they get serenaded by Kaya as she kicks butt in a Zombie Apocalypse themed rap. You go Kaya.

Welcome to Murphytown ends with Team Warren watching as the lights come on in Murphytown, realizing that they might have bitten off more than they can chew.

The Lights Coming On In Murphytown

The very last thing we see is Murphy going back into his thrown room to find The Man has removed his own hand to escape his bonds.

I enjoyed the story progression, and loved Kaya’s rap, which was one of the high points of Welcome to Murphytown, but I have to take some points off for not having a lot of Zombies being given mercy. Welcome to Murphytown scored a 67/100. It’s still worth your time, but its more of a storyline progression than Zombie driven episode.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 6, Doc Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Doc Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest opens with Doc wandering around the woods, unable to find Team Warren after he took a potty break. As he’s looking for his friends he gets bashed over the head by Elvis and wakes up in a straight jacket in the Serenity Falls Institution for the Criminally Insane.

The head nurse wants to make sure Doc is a real Doc after hearing him say his name while complaining out in the woods. After Doc passes the test of diagnosing the other hospital patients, the nurse lets Doc out of his straight jacket so he can help her with another new guest she’s got locked up. The other new guest keeps talking bout blue men and a mission to planet Zona.

Doc has found 10K, but 10K doesn’t look like he’s in good shape. He appears to be suffering from Murphy withdrawal? Bad news for 10K, the nurse wants to give him a lobotomy to help calm him down.

When 10K starts to have seizures the nurse wants to do the lobotomy emergently, but Doc challenges her for meds instead, which leads to Doc and Elvis going on a mission into the Zombie controlled area of the hospital to get to the pharmacy.

Elvis takes out the first Zombie and Doc takes out the second by plugging his shock treatment helmet into a light fixture.

Sparky

Doc and Elvis just barely make it out of the psyche ward as the nurse is prepping 10K for his lobotomy. When Doc makes it to the surgical suit the nurse is covered in blood.

He’s A Bleeder

Lucky for 10K, she was practicing on another patient first, and Doc is able to convince the nurse that he’ll take care of 10K. Thanks to Doc’s pharmaceutical skills 10K wakes up, at least long enough to confirm he to communicate again. Afterwards Doc uses his pharmacy knowledge to treat the rest of the patients, giving them real meds for the first time in ages.

The good vibes don’t last long. When Doc and 10K try to make their escape they are caught and both of them end up in straight jackets. Things are about to go very badly for Doc when the lobotomy test subject saves the day.

As Doc leads the surviving patients through the psyche ward to reach the hospital bus, the Zombies at the front of the hospital have made it through the make shift barricade. With a small horde approaching the psyche patients leave Doc and 10K behind.

As Doc is trying to move 10K he finds the bite, and realizes exactly what is wrong with 10K.

Doc Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest ends with Doc leading 10K to safety as the sun sets.

Doc And 10K Fleeing

Doc Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest scored a 73/100. The insane asylum was fun and had some amusing scenes but I tend to like the episodes with a bit more violence in them.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 5, Little Red and the Wolfz

Little Red and the Wolfz begins with 10K. After jumping into the river to escape Murphy’s Minions, he’s been carried downstream, away from his pursuers. Even wounded and cold, 10K was able to keep his grip on the bag of Zombie Cure.

10K Down – Stream

While 10K is struggling to survive out on the river bank Murphy is sad and maudlin at the loss of Dr. Merch. He wishes he understood why she did it, and as he’s walking around her corpse, he is pulled in by the look and smell of her delicious brains.

Temptation

Murphy is resisting but the more he ponders why she did it the more agitated he becomes.

10K might have escaped Murphy’s compound, but he’s bleeding and out in the wild and still has one of Murphy’s henchmen on his trail. 10K flees into the water, climbing onto what’s left of a wooden picnic table to drift downstream. He might be wounded, but when he comes across a man on a motorcycle, he still has enough in him to steal the bike and race away, leading to a bit of motorcycle handgun practice. (Highly dangerous – don’t try it.) He makes it to a nearby farm before getting knocked off the bike by a drag line. At least he had a good dream while he was out cold, imagining Red kissing him.

Dreaming Of Red

When 10K wakes up he’s not in quite as happy a place. He’s been chained to a car and there are multiple Zombies approaching. He takes down several, but his wound is slowing him down and sapping his strength. Which leads to an awesome Zombie Kill.

Hubcap of Death

10K is kicking butt, but he’s getting tired, and the Zombies just keep coming. It’s looking bad for 10K until Murphy’s henchman shows up and saves him just in time. He doesn’t really care about 10K, but he wants to get back the bag of curative because he knows Murphy needs it. 10K doesn’t want to go back to being a Murphy puppet however and takes the first chance he gets to bash his captor in the face with a rock and make a run for it. He doesn’t get far however before he’s caught and given a bit of pain in return for his efforts.

Out on the back roads we see the couple who stole the bike from 10K. There is a pack of something in the woods. Something that is fast, and finds people delicious.

Back at Murphy’s compound he realizes he needs to make more Zombie booster for himself after he looks at his arm and realizes he has patches of pale, healthy, human flesh. That’s just about when he picks up a fork and looks over at Dr. Merch’s lovely brains, just waiting to be eaten.

10K and his captor track down the motorbike in hopes of finding the bag of Zombie Meds only to be chased off by whatever else is in the woods with them. 10K uses the brief moment of confusion to fake his death, and continue running, following his imaginary Red who is urging him to run, at least until she confront him, telling him he has to go back and save 5K.

This leads to a nice, if choppy fight scene where 10K takes down multiple beasties, thinking he is saving 5K, when its really the woman who stole the bike, and the meds, from him. It’s too late to save her, but he does recover the bag of meds. Feeling Murphy’s pull on him, 10K takes another shot and falls into another dream, lost in happy daydreams of Red and 5K.

10K’s Happy Place

Little Red and the Wolfz ends with Murphy chowing down on Dr. Merch’s brains, now able to read her journal and understand it. Murphy’s henchman comes back and tells Murphy that 10K is dead, but Murphy doesn’t believe it. He knows that 10K is a tough kid, and if he escaped, that means 10K will be heading for Warren, and then coming for him. Murphy’s final command of the episode is to tell his team to get ready for an attack.

Little Red and the Wolfz was a tough episode to rate. I loved all the Zombie violence, but the Zombie Meds stuff was a little confusing. The shot is a booster for Murphy but it saves 10K from Murphy’s powers? Maybe I’m just missing something. Overall it was still a fun, action packed episode and scored a 79/100.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – Deadlocked (2020)

Deadlocked is a movie that takes almost entirely in elevator. A small group is stranded in an elevator just as the Zombie Apocalypse starts.

Deadlocked is a low budget movie. If you are expecting a ton of action and CGI, this might not be the flick for you. If this were a college project I’d likely give it an 85, but as a commercial Zombie Movie I’m giving it a 35/100, putting it just a single point into Rainy Day Movie territory. Just a single point lower and it would have been a “Just Bad” movie.

The good news is that the movie did get better as it went along. It starts really slow, but does pick up during the last 20 minutes or so. My advice is to have a few drinks, and save Deadlocked for a really rainy, dreary day.
