Poor implementations of the zombie genre

Ironically, I’m going to tell you how bad this movie and then create an Amazon.com affiliates link so I get a slight profit for all the none of you that buy it.  I’ll make you a deal: if I tell you about a bad movie, I’ll recommend a good one as well.

I’m a zombie flick afficiando, and so I’m always filling my Netflix queue with the millions of zombie flick remakes.  A few days ago Netflix brought me Zombie Night.  I can’t even tell you how bad it is.  I’m pretty sure I saw one of the ‘stars’ listed as an executive producer as well.

Worst scene: the survivors are holed up in an old warehouse, and being seriously stern with people who get infected so they don’t infect any more survivors.  For some odd reason they let one of the ‘stars’ hang out and say goodbye to his family for hours even though he could become a flesh-eating menace at any moment, and they’ve been throwing other infected people off the roof.  (Because it saves on the ammunition)  His wife and daughter even hug him repeatedly while he tells his daughter about how all those stories about monsters under the bed were actually real, and now there are monsters.  Sorry Sweetie.

Worst line: (said by a guy turning to zombie state) "I beat cancer, I can beat this!"

My suggestion, go rent 28 Days Later, a much better movie that I will pontificate on in the future.

    Have you ever seen Ringu (“The Ring”) and Ju-On (“The Grudge”)?

    For some reason, Japanese zombies prefer crawling to that Western zombie walk.
