Hunter decides to join the group as they head out to find an area that is suppose to be safe, but if they want to get there they will have to pass through a town full of zombies and a chainsaw carrying clown.
I was pretty excited over this one, after all it is a zombie movie and the artwork has Danny Trejo front and center in his Priest get-up and holding an axe but sadly the film fails on more levels than it succeeds. First off the artwork suggests that Trejo is the star of the film but he is has an extended cameo at best, the star of the film is Martin Copping. I take it that the filmmakers were hoping to draw attention by placing Trejo on the cover to get fans of his interested. The problem is that he is not in the film enough and the rest of acting is pretty weak. I know this is only a zombie film and the acting is not all that important but it is below average for the most part.
One thing the film does have going for it is that it is not a normal zombie flick. This one is a lot more the top, it reminded me of the Japanese exploitation films that are full of crazy characters and blood spraying. This film doesn't reach that level but it is crazy enough to be different. There is enough action in the film to keep your interest but again the film fails in another department, special effects. I would say many of the effects are no better than what you see on the Syfy channel.
The film is not a total wash, it does have a few cool kills and there is a good amount of action plus Trejo is his awesome self when he is on screen but over all it is a tough one to recommend.
