Yes this is another Zombie film it is also known as `Dead Season'. The synopsis is that the outbreak of `the walkers' has been raging for a year and as usual society has collapsed and the few survivors face a daily battle to get the remaining food and just survive. Elvis (Scott Peat -`Transformers') makes contact with Tweeter (Marissa Merrill) and she has adopted a young boy called Toady, so all the names are original. They decide there is safety in numbers.

Well Elvis has made a deal to get a boat and enough fuel to get to this island that is allegedly Zombie free. So they go for it. At this point in time the Zombies can only shuffle around in the normal way, but they are beginning to mutate and reports are coming through that they have managed to evolve to being much more athletic.

Once on the island they discover that what they were told was not a clear representation of the facts and the daily struggle gets worse. There are loads of Zombie films that do a new take on the genre and this does try that, but for gore fans there may not be enough here to hold your full attention as much of the movie deals with the relationships of the non Zombies and how they are coping with the mental trauma. However the film actually works better for it as the Zombie menace is never very far away and is influencing everything else.

This is a well acted and directed film but I really didn't think it was overly inventive which is actually fine for Zombie purists as we have seen some very un Zombie behaviour in a few of late like `Dead Heads' to name but one. Still if you like a good character study with Zombie `action' and half a market (yes they bought the gore in a market in Mexico) of gore, then you will probably enjoy this.

A film that obviously has influence from the Walking Dead series.Zombies are reffered to as walkers.But thats about as close as it gets.
Weak story line and a weak ending.Poor budget all round.
Character development could have been better then you would care what happens to them.Zombies also have fast and slow types with a nod to Left 4 Dead games.
Poor effort.

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.

The acting wasn't bad but the script and general structure of the film left it lacking a bit.

Nothing at all like the walking dead except for the head stabbiness, pretty gash even for a zombie movie, blooper reel is funny, looked like fun filming, more so than watching that's for sure.
