The story centers around "The Hunter" (Martin Copping) a man who has survived the zombie outbreak. The outbreak was caused by use of a new and popular recreational drug of unknown origin. The Hunter eventually ends up with a small group of survivors which include Father Jesus (Danny Trejo) and two women who vie for the attention of the new guy. Their goal is to fly to the proverbial safe island off the coast of California. The dialouge seemed fairly decent except for some unnecessary first person narration, which appears to have become too much of the norm since the success of "Zombieland."

Part of the film is shot as a grainy grindhouse, which worked well, but its use was haphazard and ended quickly. The music was grindhouse metal and the blood splatters on the camera lens. Fast Lane Debbie(Jade Regier) who is a better pole dancer than nurse, teases us with her overt sexuality. There was a WTF CG creature, apparently a new unquestionable plot must since a "Residence Evil" sequel did it.

The film had some good scenes and oozed with potential. If you are going to do a grindhouse film, you must go all the way to appeal to a grindhouse audience. This is a watered down film. Okay as a rental.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs that I recall. No nudity. Sex scene inspired by Natile Portman (keeps bra on)...seriously? In a Trejo grindhouse?

Firstly, the cover and the cast list is a little deceiving - anyone would rightly think Danny Trejo was the main character and star of the show here but he takes a back seat with probably not more than 20 minutes or so of limited screen time.

I was expecting a slightly more polished Grindhouse horror type affair along the lines of Planet Terror etc and although this is probably pitched at a similar target audience and reaching for the same style it's fair to say that it's a tier or two down on the production/direction stakes, but it's a fun/silly movie typical of that genre which you'll probably enjoy if that's what you're looking for - if you're not familiar with that style of film then be warned that you're not buying a serious zombie movie that's particularly inspired or full of jumps and cutting-edge zombie action - think cheap effects, dim lighting vs bright colors as we switch from dark, grainy washed-out scenes to surreal mutli-colored psychedelic moments that wouldn't be out of place in some 60's drug-induced dream sequence and corny one liners with cartoonish/art-school editing, which is intentional rather than the result of shoddy work and to be expected in this type of style over substance film.

The story is pretty standard with no real surprises - lone-wolf type guy traverses a post-apocalyptic landscape that has been ravished by zombies with few to no other survivors in sight, comes across a small group of odd characters who have teamed up to survive the carnage and joins their mission to find the elusive sanctuary of a non-infected safe zone. Cue zombie attacks, gruesome ends and much blood and guts. There isn't much more to it than that, it's really just an attempt at zombie low-fi campness with a light Grindhouse edge.

If you know the type of film this is intended to be you'll enjoy it - it's a good (ish) effort with a great soundtrack and funny moments littered among the intended pulp fiction but I still feel some of the non-zombie creatures (you'll know when they're on screen!), explosions and gore could have done with a little more attention to detail and it seems unfair that Martin Copping (the actual 'Zombie Hunter' of the film's title) isn't listed as the main man on either the artwork or the cast list. A more polished effort with a better FX team could have comfortably pushed it to four stars.

I'm a big Danny Trejo fan as mainly why I watched this in the first place, shame he's not in the movie for more than about 10 minutes total, The story is about a new drug that takes over as the biggest street drug to ever go on sale which eventually somehow is the cause for the end of mankind, anyone who didn't die from the drug died from the zombie infestation they turned into, a few survivors now remain living in the wasteland which was once our homes. This is a half decent zombie movie, there certainly is much better ones but this has an original style that tries to be very grindhouse with its splatter gore that splashes up the camera view, and surreal colourful flash backs and fireball wipes etc, the movie has a reasonable cast, its good to see the last 2 chicks left on earth are a couple of hotties with big hooters! There is some good bloody kills in the movie but the effects are 50/50 with some good practical kills that are let down by a CGI kill that's not quite so good, there's even a half decent CGI monster zombie a bit like something ripped off from resident evil, If you like low rent cheesy horror zombie movies then check it out, its still rather entertaining, nothing worth going back to much though.

Blu-ray has a decent picture quality.
No features.

Seemed to have so much promise and then just fell over and carked it. NOT a Danny Trejo film, he only plays a brief and shallow role. I enjoy all mamner of films including B movies... This just isn't one of them. On the plus side it was less than £2!

This is a surprisingly good little low budget Zombie Flick that doesn't have Danny Trejo in it for long but He still plays A great part and its more than A fleeting cameo,which seems to be His M.O. these Days.Well worth A look.

The cover of the dvd is the best bit . . . TBH I paid 29p + postage for this on here (2nd hand etc.) and am still not sure that it was actually worth it . . . . certainly wasn't worth my time to watch it!

This was a film full of disappointments: firstly the fact the the guy we would expect to be our main character going off the front cover at a glace isn't and has little more than a shockingly poor cg fight scene the looks like it was made in 5 mins by a student who had taken far too many drugs. Attempts at humour that just fail miserably. And most of all I was disappointed with myself for watching to the end. Like many others have said its a grind house style b movie the doesn't really do much grinding and that perhaps belongs further down the alphabet.
