When a Sumatran rat-monkey bites Lionel Cosgrove's mother, she's transformed into a zombie and begins killing (and transforming) the entire town while Lionel races to keep things under control.
this movie was extremely fun to watch. not particularily scary but it has some gross out scenes. the one that got me the most was when the main character was eating some puding with his mom who was slowly turning into a zombie. the coolest and most creative aspects of the film were the zombies and his arsenal. a lawn mower strapped to his stomach so the blade was facing the oncoming hordes. bloody fun!
I will admit that the story to this film is just really cheesy. A diseased rat monkey bites someone and then you have zombies. I think the writers really had their thinking caps on in this one. But that is not what makes this film enjoyable. It is the zombies. They were so well done with different personalities. Especially the zombie baby. What a great and creepy little character. They did jump into the whole zombie scenes pretty quick, which was good since the story was going no where in the beginning. The cast was ok. Timothy Balme was decent but the girl played by Diana Penalver was on the verge of annoying to watch. The side cast had some fun gems to watch like Elizabeth the mom and the priest who was Stuart Devenie. This film really does go in a book of fun zombie films to watch. It is not so much scary as it is bloody. There are a few jumping scenes though. You will find yourself watching the film watching to see what zombie they come up with next. Mostly you see normal zombies in films which show a person with an eye out or a missing jaw. This film just goes overboard when it comes to characters. For example. One guy gets grabbed by his head and has his head and spine ripped out the backside of his body. Later you get to see this crazy character walking around. These type of films you can expect much from the story, but it gets an A+ in creativity in characters.
