in a small town of Colorado are getting
sick with a virus going around as they
sneeze, cough and their noses starts to
A tough lieutenant named Sarah Bowman
(Mena Suvari) takes her Mom to the
hospital as her sickness is getting very
serious but when they get there the
hospital is overwhelmed by hundreds of
Suddenly their sickness effects them to
die and turn into flesh eating zombies as

Sarah's sibling named Trevor (Michael
Welch) and his girlfriend Nina (AnnaLynne
McCord) take refuge in a radio station
run by a burly man named Paul (Ian
McNeice) as he even sneezes and coughs
which startles Trevor and Nina wondering
if they will be safe.
Meanwhile, Sarah and her troops try to
escape the hospital but her boss Captain
Rhodes (Ving Rhames) has turned into a
zombie as well and are on their tail too
as he manages to bite one of their people
named Bud (Stark Sands) but he happens to
be a vegetarian so they keep him alive
while they try to battle these zombie's
and rescue the other survivors.
Nice quick camera shots on
different events which makes you think
that something terrifying will happen
A good shot on a woman walking in
the woods and a quick camera shot zooming
in with her being attacked which makes it
a true mystery on what is going on.
We also have a good discussion with Mr. Leitner getting aggressive with
a Captain of an army blocking a roadway
as he tries to act patient which makes
you wonder if he will lose it as well. It
looked very believeable.
There's a good moment with Sarah Bowman entering her house while she
spots both Trevor Bowman and Nina making out on a couch with an
argument happening which showed great
We also have a good discussion between Sarah and her sick mother in
bed which leaves you an impression that
she will turn into a zombie too.
There is a good angle shot on a camera
looking up on Sarah when she
enters someone's house and tries to look
for them which gives a good dark feeling
to the plot.
We have a great shot on inside of a
hospital with hundreds of patients and
employees racing around which looked
There's a nice shot on someone sitting
in a chair and then suddenly staring
There's also a good shot on a male patient lying in a
hospital bed and then staring into
nothing with a great close up shot on his
eyes turning white and his face
gruesomely forming. He looked great
leaping out of his bed and attacking his wife with her screaming.
There's great shots on people screaming
and running away with others as zombies
attacking inside the hospital.
We have a great shot on Captain Rhodes being attacked by
zombie's too in the hospital.
There's good blocking with a burly character Paul - DJ staring in terror on
what is happening outside with a zombie from a distance away
running towards him with him scrambling
to try and run away.
We also have great intense reactions with
both actors Trevor and Nina pounding on a cracked glass
door leading to a radio station screaming
to let them in with distance shots on zombie's running
There's a great shot on Nina pointing a gun at the station and acting
intense not trusting anyone.
We have great shots on Sarah crawling in a vent and
a zombie grabbing at her as you wonder if
she will make it which packs the
There's also a great shot on a zombie biting someone and seeing this victim screaming in pain.
Salazar points a gun at Bud thinking
that he will turn into a zombie with Sarah trying to protect him and Salazar himself getting aggressive as there's the odd
humor when he hears a zombie in the vent
making noise and shouting to the zombie
to shut up as this scene was really well remembered and worthy.
We have some good fighting sequences that
involved mainly Sarah and Salazar blowing away zombies and having a battle.
Bottom line is that I didn't care for
the original film but however, this
remake was way more enjoyable I found but
you fans may disagree with me big time. It is very different than the original
only having some of the same character's
playing lieutenants but that's it.
There's good action packed energy with
the zombie's running at full speed just
like in the remake of Dawn of the
Dead but I kinda wonder if this
one was a sequel to this one since when
you watch this flick they make out that
zombie's were never taking over anything
and suddenly are appearing due to a virus
where people are getting sick and slowly
turn into one.
There's lots of vehicle speedings and gun
fightings too for all you who love action
in their horror flicks.
It's also cool that the army had a zombie
who's a vegetarian that helps them out.
The acting is very
impressive and well done as the best of
them all was by lead actress Mena
Survai (Sarah Bowman) as she knew how to portray a
young and tough soldier with her words
and attitude making her part truly
believeable as you couldn't find anyone
better to play that role once you see her
in full action. She really brought her aggression
well by pointing a gun at someone and getting demanding.
Nick Cannon (Salazar) was another performer
who came across very well with his
aggressions and humoress attitude while
trying to be serious at the same time. Shows terrific energy when pointing a gun at someone.
Michael Welch (Trevor Bowman) really knew his stuff
as a teen not being responsible and
really knew how to freak out on camera
AnnaLynne McCord (Nina) who played his
girfriend shared very similar intensity
too and had awesome energy to her part to
top it off.
Matt Rippy (Doctor Logan) pulls off his part well
as a scumbag Doctor trying to make
himself out to be supportive but showing
his true colors when the terror starts to
McNeice (Paul - DJ) was a true character actor
playing a DJ in the film as he brings
alot of spunk and charm to his part in
the film and you will remember him fondly
for his part in the film. Does well acting aggressive
towards his two fellow asking if they're one of the zombie's.
Ving Rhames' (Captain Rhodes) role wasn't too big but
he really had a great tough and stern
attitude as the captain of the soldiers
in the film showing a great strict
attitude too. He looked creepy too when
he turned into a zombie and was
There's chewed up
Faces bitten off
Arms ripped off
Heads blown off
People eaten alive
Yes folks we get alot of this so you
gorehounds won't be disappointed
The soundtrack for this
film was not bad at all as we have some
dark sharp creepy sounds for the flick
when it was necessary for the horrifying
moments along with trumpet and violin
playing for the adventurous scene's too
(Not sure if it was used on a synthesizer
