THE PLOT:

Twenty years ago, this hospital destroyed a mad doctor who was killing patients for his own twisted experiments of life and death. The secret and the victims remained buried, until the day the doctor returned from the grave to finish up his experiment, bad timing for a girl with no memory to be checked into that very hospital and now the real terror begins.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

The story works, the zombies are scary. There is kind of a unrealistic camp element to the movie which makes it kind of fun, but also campy. The cast does a great job and the girl who plays Jane Doe is one hot babe. All and all 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, this is a fun movie. Now there are some minor character issues to deal with, there's this twisted sister of a nurse I didn't like. But other then that, I give it 7 STARS as well.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CAST (The cast works.)
+ DEAD PIT (There was a dead pit.)
+ STORY (Works for the most part.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (Very scary monsters.)
+ CAMP (Fun campy.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- UNREALISTIC (Too much camp takes away from the realism.)
- CHARACTERS (The nurse is a minor character flaw.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on Zombie movies, then this isn't for you.)
