Owen Hughes’s review:
It wasn't actually that bad; no worse than you'd expect from something like this. The plot centres around this couple as they retreat to some disused factory/bunker type building (I forget what it was exactly. Basically a concrete building) and try to survive the zombie plague with a group of other survivors. A mum who is a porn star, her daughter who she is overprotective of, a minor celebrity who is a dick, a gay guy who is quite macho, a butch goth-chick, a crazy repressed preacher guy and his infected brother who is chained up in the basement... probably some other people who I have forgotten about.. they aren't that important.
Because of this crazy rabble, there was no tragedy when people were killed off. The characters weren't easy to empathise with so when they inevitably mess things up, you don't care. In fact, you rejoice at their ridiculous demise.
Plot-wise, although not an especially new concept to make it so that the zombies are just people with alien parasites controlling their brains, but the ending (barring the final scene) was rather... explosive. Not literally explosive like a Michael Bay film, but explosive in baby aliens being shot out of vag...err, well, it's just a bit weird. There was a lot of focus on the genitals in this film. Not that that's why I liked it! Just that it felt like they had a message they wanted to convey about genderlessness or something similar perhaps. It wasn't executed well, but it was there somewhere I'm sure.
Not a bad attempt, but very low budget and a bit too reliant on shock value.
