So awful it will probably end up as a classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apocalypse Of The Dead [DVD] (DVD)
Just finished this on Lovefilm as I trawl through as much zombie film nommage as inhumanly possible.
Apocalypse of the Dead sets its stock early on with the amateurish artwork on the intro credits. I have seen sturdier houses of cards compared to this plot but hey, who watches a zombie movie to obtain philosophy and life-changing insights.
The film is pointlessly dubbed in places so I can't begin to imagine how awful the actors originally sounded. There are pointless fill scenes and some very sketchy acting and a quite quite awful script.
But there is plenty of action and the film doesn't waste any time in getting to it. The camera work is very shaky for the action scenes and I found myself getting a bit motion-sick in places finding the whole thing a little hard to follow. You get the full impression of what's going on though, and for the zombie-flick lover there is plenty of the good stuff (even if the zombies do move like elastic bands).
I would recommend you rented this instead of buying the DVD where possible, as I can't imagine you'd want (or need) to watch this more than once.
