| Avoid This Film at All Costs
This movie was awful. The acting was amateurish, the special effects were cheap looking and the weapons the college kids used looked downright silly. Further, the humor was bland, the horror was non-existent and the action scenes were pathetic. And on top of that the end credits were incomplete as well. In short, this was an awful movie which was painful to watch. Now, I fully understand that low budget movies don't have the resources to compete against multi-million dollar productions. As a result the filmmakers have to be creative and resourceful. In that regard, there are some positive things I would like to add. For example, using a college campus for the film location was definitely a good idea. Likewise, while the actors clearly weren't top-notch professionals, there were a couple who showed some potential--and a couple who had no business being in front of a camera lens. The two who gave adequate performances were Dana DiRado (as "Tina") along with the female with the cricket bat who isn't mentioned by name in the film or listed in the credits. Again, the filmmakers didn't appear to know what they were doing. On the flip side though, the acting of Jonathan Michael McClune ("Jarrod") and Michael Curtis Miller ("Jeremy") was extremely bad. Both should be arrested for "impersonating an actor." Be that as it may, this was not a good film even when measured by low budget zombie-comedy standards. If anything, having watched it in its entirety I almost feel obliged to issue a public service announcement warning viewers to avoid this film at all costs. Now, having said that, my conscience is clear.
