Decent Straight to Video Zombie fare
A man infected with a strange virus while wiping out a houseful ofzombies is arrested and placed in a maximum-security prison.Unfortunately, the virus spreads before a CDC doctor can isolate himand the entire prison soon becomes a battleground between the livingand dead in this lively horror film. Director Peter Mervis makes gooduse of the prison setting and the tight script by Mike Watt makingthis one of the better efforts by prolific, but wildly inconsistent,team at The Asylum. The special effects are decent, and the pace isbrisk, however, the editing does get annoying in places. Although Ifound this film superior to many of the straight-to-video films I haveseen recently, it still suffers from undeveloped and unsympatheticcharacters. Is it the actors or script? Hard to say. All I know is thatit had emotional impact when Duane Jones died at the end of "Night ofthe Living Dead." You don't feel anything when the SWAT guys waste thechick at the end of this film.
