Following a zombie outbreak, a bunch of survivors end up with the task of escorting the only known survivor of a zombie bite to a lab where they need his blood in order to produce a vaccine. Along the way, they end up in all kinds of trouble and get to kill a lot of zombies. You won’t really care whether all of them make it or not, because you don’t really get to know any of the characters involved. Oh yeah, you also get to follow Citizen Z (DJ Qualls), a nerd stuck in an army base way, way up north, who helps guide the survivors to the lab.

I don’t know if it’s the script or the actors, but the acting is terrible. Take the survivor of the bit for example… he is supposed to be a bit of a dick, but comes across as someone aiming for full-retard instead. The same goes for the make-up and the special effects. It’s not like The Asylum (who produced this) are known for quality releases. After all, they’re the ones responsible for taking Transformers and crapping it back out as Transmorphers. But even by their standards, this is pretty damn bad.

This is pretty much strictly for those out there who feel The Walking Dead is too challenging because people talk so much in it.
