I'm a die hard zombie flick fan, and although I prefer the absolute classics and have probably seen every movie belonging to this genre, I will admittedly sit through any mindless zombie movie in the hopes of finding a hidden gem amongst the horrific (excuse the pun) and endless stream of movies that continue to be released that follow the same old plot lines and use the same old effects.

This is my first review, which should give some indication to how much I wanted to express my disgust of this 'movie'. I'm all for the ol' 'biohazard dust storm' storyline that causes every human in its wake to turn into rotting, caniverous corpses (especially those who move extremely fast as opposed to those lurching slowly across fields at a tenth of the speed of any potential victims), but the fact that the plot line is extremely boring, poorly explained, predictable and full of holes is only a small part of the insult of this film, the main being the absolutely horrible acting of EVERY cast member - Where did they find these people???!!!! And the fact that although the majority of the characters are supposed to be allies and mostly American, there would be at least 12 different accents spread over all of the characters!! If your American President cant even have a passable American accent (in this case the A.P sounds Slovakian or at least of eastern European descent) you're really scraping the bottom layer of the bitumen thats underneath the barrel! You then have the secretary of state who starts off with a 'British' accent which even then deteriorates and morphs throughout the film. Apart from the accents, every part and actor is absolutely cringeworthy.... and just when you think it cant get worse...surprise surprise, the characters and their 'performances' become even more appalling.

Even the assembly of so called 'masters of their art' (Bomb expert, 'swordstress', sharpshooter) look as if they haven't even had a minutes' training or any experience in their area of mastery, making even the somewhat essential violence that's really required when making a zombie movie, absolutely comical, ridiculous and laughable in this case.

After having written what I have so far, I'm even starting to regret wasting further time on this abomination. The 'million dollar budget'stated in the fims statistics can clearly be broken down after watching the movie. $998000 has clearly been spent on special effects and making zombies look as disgusting and 'real' as possible (the only tiny amount of positive credit I will pay to this movie) the remaining $2000 was obviously then spent on paying for camera equipment, for the usuage of existing sets, and lunches for the so called 'actors' and crew who were obviously not payed a thing, but rather, gotten off the street, their incentive for doing the movie being lunch each day, and the opportunity to put 'I starred inworked on a C grade movie' on their resum├ęs....which I'm sure none of them would do, due to the shame of being associated with such a hideous and insulting film.

An abomination of a zombie movie even by zombie movie abomination standards.......
