This zombie film starts on international "Peace Day" when some undisclosed process will neutralize radiation and make nuclear weapons useless. While these sketchy details are televised in the background, Tom (Grant Bowler) and Tori (Evalena "cleavage" Marie) go to a bomb shelter to get it on at a Reno hotel casino. When they emerge I expected to see Burgess Meredith looking for his glasses, but instead there is a full blown zombie food riot going on outside. Like "Dawn of the Dead" the first rule is to secure the perimeter and eliminate zombie hazards within the safe zone...which isn't that easy as this appears to be the only hotel casino that doesn't have a gun stashed anywhere.

Our non-zombie people group narrows down to four, with one openly gay character. (Guess who dies first because killing off the brother first has become too cliche?) The radioactive zombies require head shots and are a combination of fast moving and foot dragging zombies, whichever suits the mood of the director. They have the unusual characteristic of sleeping while standing up and unlike the standard zombie fare, they do feed off each other. Bites appear to cause infection. At one point they talk about going to Catalina, which made me think of this being a "Zombie Apocalypse" prequel...which it isn't...I think.

Tom and Tori are the main characters who have a rocky relationship. There are some CG fire effects that are rather poor, i.e. holding a match in front of a picture, but they don't last long. Good acting performances for a low budget zombie film. The script needed some tightening up. Worth a view for zombie fans.

PARENTAL GUIDE: No f-bombs that I recall, but it does have adult language (SOB etc.) sex, no nudity. Evalena Marie sports cleavage for much of the film in her red bra.

I saw this in the supermarket, and saw it said 'by the makers of 30days of night', and fancied a Zombie flick. Do not associate the two!

This is one of the poorest movies I have ever seen, clearly had a minimal budget for both actors and effects.

So many flaws I dont know where to start. Next to nothing happens at all, the characters are awful and by the end I was hoping they would just all die to end the movie.

Some of the major flaws for me (some minor spoilers):

- Main guy has two fingers cut off, in the next scene he is using the same hand to pull someone up on a rope, does not flinch. Then he's punching a zombie in the face!!!

- Main girl (terrible actress) sets some C4 on a door about 5 metres away, bashes buttons and accidentaly sets it for 3 seconds (oh dear), so as you would expect it explodes and kills her......oh wait, no, no that doesnt happen, she just gets up unscathed!

- Zombies sleep!! standing up, and whimper like dogs! In fact, for the whole film they might as well be dogs for the way they act, i was fully expecting one to get a tickle on the belly for being a 'good little boy'. One is actually on a leash though!

I could keep going, but its all along the same lines. I understand that smaller movie companies have a smaller budget, but incosistencies like this are just unnacceptable! Churning out this kind of tosh is just wrong!!

If you are the biggest Zombie fan out there and feel like wasting 9 and 85 minutes of your life, then please carry on! For those with sense, dont!

Tom and Tori are a thirty-something Las Vegas couple who have one of those tediously histrionic on and off relationships. Tom likes his booze and has forgotten how to shave. Tori is very pretty (and pretty slutty), and very vocal with her opinions. They work in a Las Vegas casino, and whilst they're absorbed making out doggy style in a basement garage, a zombie holocaust takes place in the world outside...
Some of the zombies amble about languorously, like in Romero's original Night Of The Living Dead - Night Of The Living Dead [Blu-ray] [1968] [Region Free]. Some of them charge about like they've swallowed a whole packet of Pro Plus tablets, they move like the zombies in the remake of Romero's Dawn Of The Dead - Dawn Of The Dead (The Directors Cut) [DVD] [2004].
What follows then is a fairly uninspired re-imagining of the Dawn Of The Dead, as a group of survivors struggle to exist inside the casino (in Romero's masterpiece it was a shopping mall). The acting is okay-ish. The make up effects for the zombie hordes is passable. Some of the stunt work is impressive. Tom and Tori are the main characters, but the only memorable quality they have is Tori's penchant for low cut tops. Still worse, the two of the don't really have any chemistry together. There are so many own goals and missed opportunities in this film. At one point, Tom and Tori cleverly trap a zombie inside an industrial tumble dryer. I was waiting for them to turn the dryer on and watch the zombie tumble about, but it didn't happen. They just walked away.
