But this time every story is based around Zombies of course, but in different countries of the world.
The main problem here is that just like ABC's of Death and VHS before it, it isn't anything special.
Some segments are touching and decent, others are shockingly bad and extremely unfunny.
There are plenty by the way, so read on for quick summaries and comments about each.
We start with a segment named "Dark Times" about people running through the woods and bumping into a bunch of zombies.
At the end is a giant zombie silhouette which had me intrigued, I hope this is a wrap around and shows me what it is at the end of the film I thought.
The movie then jumps to a news report with Marvin Gloatt (played brilliantly by Bill Oberst Jr.) who keeps the segments connected. Throughout his moments, he's slowly becoming a zombie himself and he plays it wonderfully.
The first segment, "Fist of Jesus" is a ridiculous segment based on Jesus and Judas fighting hordes of zombies with fish, a crucifix and other things. The problem here is that it overstays its welcome and would work great if it was much shorter. Unfortunately it just sticks with trying to get as much gore as possible on screen and ultimately becomes boring.
We have 3 cutaway public service announcements throughout the film which could have been much funnier but they try to go the informative route and still manage to somehow fail at that.
"I Am Lonely" is about a guy getting home to find his flatmate dead. It's a long boring monologue which tries way too hard to be funny and has the worst punch line ever.
I could get more laughs than it, and I'm not funny.
"Dead Stop" is an apparent live feed (which makes no sense, if you watch you'll understand why) which was completely pointless and shows a girl in the back of a car going hysterical. My dirty mind at first thought she was having sex.... An officer knocks on the car door. Then the zombies come.
"Home", the most emotional segment in my eyes. A young woman living in the outback hunts the zombies during the day but at night sits silently staring at old photos of her deceased husband. It's all about love and trying to stay human.
"Dead Rush" a first person perspective short about a guy waking up in a public toilet soon being joined by his friends who try to find a way away from all the zombies. There's nothing special about this segment but then it's also one that doesn't try to be funny and is a decent short. It asks who can you trust in this situation and friends really are friends to the end.
"Teleportal" is a so so entry. The writers clearly took a note from The Video Dead and I think they might have been watching the episode of Derren Brown where he hypnotised someone playing a zombie arcade game into believing they were really in it. I won't get into details as this isn't the right place. Just google it.
But in this short we see a guy playing a zombie based FPS at home before travelling through the tv and into the game.
It could have been longer with a bit more story and/or the main guy going into a more interesting game world.
"Certified" is about a postman being invited in to a person's house he's delivering to, to then be told a creepy story by the young girl who lives there. It starts off creepy and atmospheric but then gets too silly and ends abruptly without a zombie in sight.
"Brutal Relax" A man who has overcome psychological problems goes on holiday to a nice beach resort, everything is all happy until zombies start rising from the sea and proceed to kill everyone.
It's another made for the gore fans but it does have some brutal and funny kills.
The film then ends with Marvin in full zombie mode.
No wrap around to show what the giant silhouette was unfortunately but do stick around for the end credits for some fun photographs.
There's one bonus feature on the DVD release named 'Marathon Apocalypse" which is basically an advert to learn how to run from the zombies taking over the world. I have no idea why it wasn't included in the actual film.
So in all, Dread Central have produced a poorly put together film of some of the worst zombie shorts of recent years. Granted there are a couple which are decent but the rubbish outweighs the good. It has mainly awful acting and extremely bad cgi throughout.
I give it a
I'd still rather watch this than Creepshow 3 though...
If you like over the top gore and love zombies however, you'll probably enjoy this more than I did. I love zombies but I love a decent story and character development too so it just didn't do it for me.
