Zombie horror flick. As the saying goes, when it rains it pours. However this time, the rainfall comes in the form of a meteor storm like no other! These flaming balls of chaos begin to strike the Earth, unleashing an evil from beyond the grave. Infected by the meteor's mysterious elements, a band of homeless people get transformed into creatures of the undead. They crawl out from a smouldering crater and the vagrant zombies then begin to serve up a dish of pain and suffering onto the unsuspecting community.

For the record, the real name of this movie is 'Last Rites' even though it was recently released in the US as 'Gangs of the Dead'.
So there are the facts regarding the various monikers of this film, as for the film itself, I don't think it's as bad as the other reviewers are making out, but then I'm a hardcore zombie fan, so for anyone else who is I'd say give it a go - it's certainly better than `Flight of the Living Dead' & as for "no decent zombie gore WHATSOEVER" as another reviewer suggests, I'd say that a severe hands only half-head ripped open/decapitation is pretty damn good gore in anyone's book.
The film itself features an incomprehensible plot, questionable acting, a rubbish score, poor editing and photography and a feeble attempt at tacking a religious undercurrent onto the list of ingredients, which also include LOTS of black stereotypes and crucially a total lack of invention in the zombie dispatch department.
To be concise, it's most likely the worst film I have ever seen. Avoid avoid avoid avoid avoid. Truly dismal drivel.
Nothing unique or original. Meteorite hits homeless people, they turn into zombies. Some people are trapped inside a warehouse thing, lots of arguments, they disagree about what should be done. Most of them die. Bla bla bla.
Poor acting, poor storyline, absolutely nothing about this film is exciting, it's boring at best. Also, terrible sound and picture quality, rubbish effects. I don't mind poor effects, or poor picture quality, as long as the film is entertaining, as this was not, it just added to the misery of sitting through this.
There are some good zombie films out there, this is not one of them. I wouldn't waste your time. I would not recommend to anyone.
Nothing to do with the 28 days/weeks franchise.
and watch 20 mins of it tock it out the dvd player and put it in the bin because its rubbish
The gore effects are excellent for a low budget movie, some of the CGI stuff is a bit lacking, e.g. cars exploding but the sound levels are woefully poor.
There are too many characters for you to concentrate on them all, and they are all villains.
The story is weak, with a bleak ending. Not quite good enough.

whatever you do, do not buy this movie. I love horror, but this has nothing to do with the first 2 moves, 28 days later and 28 weeks later. Read morePublished on 27 April 2014 by n. hamilton
