After a devastating zombie breakout, medical student Zoe (Skelton) stays an emergency bunker, trying her best to use her medical knowledge to help the survivors. But when a zombie hybrid follows them into camp, Zoe sees an opportunity she can’t let pass.
Based on the popular zombie movie Day of the Dead (1985) made by legendary horror director George A. Romero, this is a remake that at first seems pointless. And as you watch the story dragging itself on while unknown actors deliver toe-cringingly bad performances, it only becomes more pointless. It seems typical for low-budget horror movies to spend plenty on gore, and DOTDB is no exception, except most others choose to recognize their limitations and add up with either a good portion of black humour or by keeping everything simple to make the most of the money. But here is no tongue-in-cheek humour, no satire, nothing and no limited set either. It is as if it thinks it is a much bigger movie than it is and therefore blows itself up to impress, but it doesn’t take many minutes to realize it is filled with hot air. The cast does their best and if you simply can’t get enough of zombie flicks, this will do and is far from the worst on the market (that may very well be Zombie Strippers from 2008) but everyone else is better of re-watching Romero’s version of the story.
Christa Campbell, who is one of the movie’s producers, starred in the 2008 remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead.
