DVD review: Zombie Undead (2010)

A car roars through the darkened country roads. Inside, a distraught Sarah (Ruth King), holding her stricken dad, Mark, is desperately trying to stem the flow of blood. Having been re-directed to an Evacuation facility on the edge of town, Steve (Barry Thomas), an off-duty Paramedic is in a race against time fully aware that Marks chances of survival are rapidly slipping away. The scene that greets them on arrival is one of chaos. The floor, awash with blood, is covered with the bodies of the dying and injured, doctors dart back and forth, clearly overwhelmed. A violent convulsion causes Mark to lose consciousness, heart stopped he slumps to the floor. As the adrenalin needle slams into her Fathers heart Sarah stumbles back and her world fades to black. Upon regaining consciousness Sarah is greeted by the uneasy silence of a seemingly deserted building. Bleeding and dazed she stumbles through the darkened corridors unaware of the fate that awaits her... Zombie Undead is a british zombie film, it´s written by Kris Tearse and directed by Rhys Davies. The acting is mostly bad, the camera work and editing is ok. The pacing is slow, very slow, there isn´t much happening instead we get a lot of discussions between the characters as they wander around the hospital. There is some gore but nothing spectacular and the zombie make-up is pretty basic stuff.
This review is based on region 2 UK release from Metrodome.
Rating: 0½ out of 7. Zombie Undead is boring, more action, more gore, more and better looking zombies would have been nice. Now it´s soporific dull and is the equivalent of a sleeping pill.
