As title really. The only reason I was happy giving 1 star is because of the locations. Very nice place to set a zombie film and it had quite a resident evil 5 feel to it. The gun shot effects where also very good. That's where the compliments stop though. The acting is bad and the main character spends most of the film just grunting and has a complete inability to show emotion. The idea behind the film is good, the execution was rubbish. Even if you love your zombie films, give this one a miss.....1hr and 41 min's of my life I wont ever get back.

Before you think "Oh no not another no budget direct to DVD/ Blue Ray "Z" grade Zombie movie", think again!
Of course the film was shot on a minimum budget but what they did with it they get the maximum impact. Shot on location in Africa this Zombie epic it very stark and stomach churningly brutal. The Zombies are the ones of the 70's and 80's moany, groany, shuffly, shuffly ones. But this film is one nasty road movie with some amazing African locations that really had added impact.
To say these Zombies are slow the film is very un-nerving as it's the volume of them as they stagger around looking for live flesh, only to be killed again in brilliantly realised fashion.
The only time does the film show it's budget limitations is in a dream sequence that supposed to shot in America, but it looks to shot on my street.
If you like old school Zombie movies then you must see this.
It's nothing earth shattering, but it's better than most rescent big budget Zombie movies and that includes the Last three that George,A. Romero churned out!
See if you like.....
