re-animate the dead for military use.
Reynolds son Curt (J. Trevor Edmund)

The two of them take off on his motorbike
but he gets into an accident and kills
Julie. He brings Julie to the lab in
order to revive her. After being revived,
Julie is suddenly hungry and realises
that she doesn't want any regular food as
she's hungry for human brains and is
feeling alot of pain and torture without
it wishing that she just died.
They both run away and hide into a
hermit's place underneath a bridge but
are terrorised by a Spanish gang lead by
the nasty Santos (Mike Moroff) that they
encountered beforehand in a corner store
but of course, this means more food for
There's a nice opening with a corpse in a
blanket on a stroller with people like Lt. Col. Sinclair and Col. John Reynolds as
well as a good shot on a cadaver being tied up
and acting nasty. There's also a good
shot on him biting off a finger with a
riot going on with the people
turning into zombies and attacking in the
A good lustful shot on both Julie Walker and Curt Reynolds in bed as well as them having a concerned
discussion on what they saw with the
There's a good stern conversation between Curt and Col. John Reynolds as son and
father having a heated argument about
transferring to another area as it looks
good with the rebellion on how this was being done. There's also a nice
shot on John grabbing Curt's wrist when he tries to get away from him.
A great shot on Curt driving his bike in the dark with Julie on the back and good close up shots on
her touching and feeling him. Then
there's a good shot on a truck driving
around a curb with him wiping out and a
perfect shot on her smacking
into a telephone pole which looked quite
brutal. Next, there's a great close up
shot on him holding her head
and screaming in tears.
There's a nice shot on the two riding on
a motorbike after Julie herself is resurrected with her getting aggressive
and demanding him to go somewhere to get
food telling him she's hungry.
There's a nice shot on punks at a corner store
playing a video game and cracking jokes.
There's another good moment with Julie grabbing a bunch of junkfood and eating
it as well as going insane with
everything. A nice camera shot looking up
on one of the punks Santos at the store asking a sarcastic
question as well as him getting
aggressive towards Curt as it
looks intimidating and real that he will
A good moment with a store owner
pointing his gun at Santos and Mogo and at that store in different
angles telling them to leave acting

if one of them will jump at him when he
tries to concentrate on both of these
A great close up shot on Julie biting one of the other punks on
the arm while leaving with him hollering
There's a good moment with her stabbing herself with a pin and licking
her own blood as well as acting anxious.
A nice moment with the store owner charging
out of the back of a truck as a zombie
and attacking which looked hyped up.
A good moment with her acting weak and suffering as well as
getting anxious towards Curt near a sewage system which looked really
good on someone suffering living as a
zombie. There's also a good shot on her
standing on a hedge ready to jump with
him trying to convince her that things
will be fine which looked energetic and
Good shots on him screaming out for her while walking along
a sewage area with a bum on his tail talking
to him which looked quite twisted.
There's a good moment with Curt by trying to cheer Julie up about
their futures with her acting all tensed
up and a nice shot on the two of them
which looked romantic.
Nice close up shots on her stabbing through her skin and putting
objects on her.
A good struggle between Curt pitted against Santos and Felipe with a nice entrance by Julie opening a door and hissing towards
everyone with the sharp stuff stabbed
through her skin as the shots on all of
this looked genuinely spooky. There's a
nice moment with Santos approaching close to her and talking
sleazy towards her.
Great shots on Julie getting vicious towards Felipe and Alice ready to attack.
There's a good moment with her going crazy and ready to attack Curt with a nice shot on him swinging an
object at her head and then a nice shot
looking down on her crying
and acting hungry.
Many great suspenseful shots on Curt and Julie by trying to escape the
military base from the
zombie's with lots of suspenseful shots
on all of this.
Bottom line is that this one was an
improvement and a totally different story
altogether. It's not at all hokey. The
story is alot more serious and more
adventurous too. Plus it's a touching
story on two rebellious teens trying to
run away and one of them has to be
resurrected into a zombie but she's
realising that it's hell for her to live
through it without human brains so that
is still there but yet the victims turn
into zombie's too after being bitten so
it does give a tribute to the Romero
types of zombie flicks. Plus we do see a
zombie rising from a can which is almost
like a Tarman type of character. But
other than that, it really stands on it's
own unlike most of these kinds of zombie
flicks. Sometimes good and sometimes not
It's a romantic but sad story on this
couple surviving all of this as well as
trying to flee a Mexican gang too which
gives the film a bit of a punch too.
It does get tiresome though as when it
looks adventureous it doesn't really go
anywhere either. The film was a very
simple plot too and not adding enough
spunk like it should've been.
It's no doubt a teenage zombie horror
flick and geared for anyone who like a
party type horror flick on Halloween or
anyone who is in the mood to get together
and just have fun watching a movie who
enjoys the romance in it and what someone
would do to help the other person too.
The acting is very
good as we have alot of unique actors in
this film like Mindy Clarke (Julie Walker) who gets revived and turns
into a zombie but she really knows how to
bring out the emotions in her character
as you truly feel sorry for her on how
she's suffering from all she's going
through. A great reaction on her after being resurrected just choking out
her words. Does well by showing nice monstrous expressions
towards two of the cast members and ready to attack them.
J. Trevor Edmund (Curt Reynolds) had the perfect
young rebellious appeal to him and can
really bring out his aggressions too as
well as his sympathy throughout the
storyline. A great raging aggression during a heated argument. Looked
believeably emotional when screaming in tears after a tragic moment. He was a true character actor
and can easily be cast in other types of
these flicks during this time period that
he came across nicely with all of this. He was incredibly charming with was
another nice pointer to his work.
Kent McCord (Col. John Reynolds) played a great strict as
nails colonel in the film and knew how to
come across as very serious and stern. He
also showed great serious expressions
too. He knew his role quite well and
deserved good credit like the rest of the
Basil Wallace (Riverman) really came across
nicely with his eccentric behavior as a
homeless one living near the sewage
system. He showed a nice form of energy
into his part of the film.
Sarah Douglas (Lt. Col. Sinclair) had one of the best
supporting roles in the film as a member
of the military with her strong words and
serious attitude. She also knew how to
behave very strongly with what she did in
the film and making her role come to
life. Of course I loved her work as the
evil Ursa in the first two Superman movies and proves herself to be a
versatile character actress.
Mike Moroff (Santos) lived to play a Spanish gang leader in the mean streets of Los Angeles. He was hulking and showed perfect violent aggressions too. He really makes you think of those gang hoodlums in that type of rough area.

There's a nice chanting
music during the opening credits which
sounds like you'd hear in a fantasy flick
plus throughout the film there's cheesy
low and high pitched synthesizer music
too. To top it off we hear the odd rusty
scraping sounds which was necessary all
done by Barry Goldberg.
Reynolds: I liked you when you were...the
way you were before.
Reynolds: Julie, are you eating him? You
should stop it.
Reynolds: How could you...eat that man?
