While the zombies are
taking over the world still, a small
group of scientists led by Sarah (Lori
Cardille) and John (Terry Alexander) as
well as military personnel led by the
nasty Captain Rhodes (Joseph Pilato)
reside in an underground bunker in
Florida thinking that they might be safe
and calling for zombie's to shoot and
kill as well as planning a way out to a
deserted area but checking to see if
there's other survivors around as well.
They use undead people for gruesome
experiments however which becomes a
nightmare for them.
Finally the military finds that their men
have been used in the scientists'
experiments, and banish the scientists to
the caves that house the living dead.
One scientist by the name of Logan
(Richard Liberty) tries to tame one of
the zombies who was an army soldier named
Bub (Sherman Howard) killed in the war
and trying to make him remember his past
from the army that he was killed in.
However the head military chief named
Captain Rhodes doesn't like this and
threatens to kill his people too.
We spot a perfect beginning of the film
with Sarah sitting alone
in a room and then walking up to see a
picture and zombie's hands crawl out of
the wall which was of course a dream
There was a good shot on her and John riding in a
helicopter with their discussions together.
They also do well standing near a
deserted city calling for anyone out
there and the wind is blowing dust
showing money flying around and a
newspaper saying the Dead Walks. Great
camera shots on zombie's
starting to walk the city towards them.
We see a nice performance by a supporting
character Steel calling
for the zombie's to come so they can trap
some which looks exciting. Everyone
involved with that scene did a nice job
trapping the zombie's and struggling to
A nice moment with Sarah walking into a lab and a zombie waving around catching her by
Both Sarah and Logan have a good discussion
together when he tells her what he's
trying to do with these zombie's and adds
humor when he talks to them.
Nice shots on Steel nearly
beating the crap out of McDermott although it didn't look as
overly violent like it was supposed to
Great scene's in a tunnel involving McDermott, Sarah and John running around to find a way to escape
and shooting zombie's in the head too.
A perfect shot on Captain Rhodes with
zombie's hands circling around him.
Nice gruesome shots on the
zombie's eating body parts which almost
makes you think of Night of the
Living Dead on how it was done
but this time they took it to the
Bottom line is that many of you may
scream at me for putting this one down as
well but I found it pointless and
uninspired. However, indie filmmaker Jose
Prendes did make Corpses Are
Forever making his film almost
similar but I found that his film had a
better plot to it although it was on a
very thin budget.
There are some great performances and
some interesting action sequences but not
enough to make this film exciting to
watch as it is really slacking in many
spots mostly taking place at a hideout
area with certain zombie's that a
professor is trying to tame.
We have a nice
talented cast which makes up from bombing
the film in total having a strong
deliverance to their parts.
Lori Cardille (Sarah) was extremely powerful
with her words in the film as well as her
aggression as the head scientist in the
film. She was perfect acting in a
rage towards someone when
they are in a room together forcing him
Joseph Pilato (Captain Rhodes) lived to play an evil
and cold blooded captain of the military
team having nice icy words when he
speaks. Does a perfect job
commanding everyone in a room looking
evil and not so pleasant and really was
icy when he demands the lead character to
sit down or he will shoot her and she
does well acting ignorant. He really
showed unpleasant expressions by pointing a
gun out ready to shoot someone. Also was down right menacing
towards his fellow actor after he
discovers what he has been doing which
was quite intense too.
Anthony Dileo Jr (Miguel) reacts terrifically
after he is bitten in the neck with his
frightened yelps and panics.
Richard Liberty (Logan) really was
believeable as a scientist trying to tame
the zombie's and brings nice humor and
character to his part. He also does well with an onscreen zombie trying to train him to remember his
Supporting actor Gary Howard Klar
(Steel) stood out the most as a redneck
lieutenant in the film making him a
N. Stavrakis (Torrez) was certainly the
centre of attention as a strange and
eccentric one in the film who really knew
how to freak out big time. He knew how to freak out
and act scared by crying towards his fellow actress when she tries to give him a shot.
Plenty of gore.
Zombie's bite people's arms, neck and
other parts of the body
Heads are torn off as well as body parts.
Guts spill out of zombie's
An arm is cut off by a machette (OUCH)
A zombie's head is cut in half by a
Bloody gun shots in the head and body.
A mans body gets split in half.
We have some nice 80's
keyboard playing for the film punching
some action into it by John Harrison.
However it doesn't sound gloomy like in
the previous sequel to Dawn of
[Steel is taunting the
zombies in the corral]
Pvt. Rickles: [laughing]
That's it, Steel! Whip it out!
Pvt. Steel: Fuckin' A! Biggest
piece of meat in the cave! I don't wanna
frighten the lady, though, not with her
Sarah: You're incapable of
exciting me, Steel, except as an
Pvt. Steel: Oh, what the hell does
that mean, Rickles?
Pvt. Rickles: It means you're a
caveman, asshole! You're a fuckin'
throwback! You've been spendin' too much
time underground! It's okay, Steel -
throwbacks all got big dicks!
[Steel and Rickles laugh]
[Steel is threatening to
kill Miguel for his accidentally
releasing a zombie. Sarah trains her
machine gun on Steel]
Sarah: Let him go, goddamn it! Or
I'll cut you in half!
Steel, shoot that woman.
[Steel points a finger at Sarah]
Pvt. Steel: Bang, you're dead!
Dr. Logan: It wants
me! It wants food! But it has no stomach,
can take no nourishment from what it
ingests. It's acting on INSTINCT!
[Bub has saluted Captain
Dr. Logan: Apparently he was in
the military! Return the salute! See what
Captain Rhodes: You want me to
salute that pile of walking pus? Salute
Dr. Logan: Your ignorance is
exceeded only by your charm, Captain. How
can we expect them to behave if we act
Captain Rhodes: I
don't want them to do anything but drop
Dr. Logan: Yes, well, apparently
they're not inclined to do that for you,
[Bub the zombie is
playing with a telephone]
Dr. Logan: That's right, Bub! Say
hello to your Aunt Alicia! Say,
"Hello, Aunt Alicia!"
Bub: A-... a-...
Captain Rhodes: Go
on run, run you fucking lunatics!
Pvt. Steel: Come on,
Bub! Come on, ya pus-brain bag of shit!
Ya wanna learn how to shoot, Bub? I'll
teach ya how to shoot!
Captain Rhodes: [as
the zombies are disembowling him and
eating his entrails] Choke on 'em!
