Okay, so there's more zombie films out there at the moment than the zombies themselves in a George A Romero movie and I'm guessing I've seen most of them. In fact, there are probably some much higher budget ones that are worse than this.
Okay, it's not the new 1979 Dawn of the Dead, but, considering zombies are getting pretty tired right now, anything that vaguely breathes even a little bit of life into a rotting corpse of a genre is worth a little look.
Dead Season is set a year after your average zombie apocalypse blah, blah, blah and two human survivors seek refuge on a - supposedly - zombie-free island. Of course there are a few zombies (or `walkers' as they call them here) who make in into their little paradise, plus the local human inhabitants have some secrets up their sleeves.
The first you should know is that this film is pretty low budget. You don't see an awful lot of the undead at the best of times, which means that gore is also kept to a minimal for most of the film (the `pay-offs' all come in the last twenty minutes or so). However, what the film lacks in gore it makes up for by its general gloomy atmosphere and great use of scenery on the island (you really get a feel for the place). Plus, for a low-budgeter, the actors all turn in pretty good perfomances.
If I had to compare Dead Season to another zombie film, I'd say it shared a few traits with Day of the Dead (1985).
If you can stomach yet another zombie film, I'd keep in mind that this was made on quite a shoestring and give it a go.
