Dead and Rotting
This movie seems much more like a conversation with high/drunk friends that somehow actually got made rather than a realised idea for an actual story. Someone said: "Man there should be a film led by a cool female lead...and she should be like Blade, but also powerful, like a werewolf...and tragic, like she dies...but then she comes back!...So she should be like a vampire, werewolf, zombie chick, but hot, definitely hot...and she should be based on some kick-ass fairy tale babe, like little red riding hood, killing wolves and all that...oh my god! She could kill werewolves!" And then someone else was like: "Done."
Unfortunately rather than writing the whole thing while high/drunk so it becomes some crazy, wacky cult classic, they instead sobered up and tried to give some legitimacy to their idea by giving it a serious plot, which becomes ludicrous in conjuncture with such a concept. The actors all trying to play the entire thing straight makes it way more boring and way more unintentionally stupid than it needs to be.
Overall this film is simply a 'cool' sounding concept with very little actual entertainment. It comes across as a quick cash grab with an inane plot, although it is filmed well and the actors aren't too bad so it can't be completely condemned. If you just want to turn your brain off then go for it, but even in those regards this film could have exploited its premise to make it a much more enjoyable brainless watch.
