S.W.A.T. (Widescreen Special Edition) (Bilingual) <b>DVD</b> ~ Samuel L. Jackson
You have seen this movie before. No really. You have. Maybe in different movies, but you have seen it. Every cheesy stereotype that typically is part of the Hollywood film experience is here and you will groan in recognition. The rebellious protagonist, the tough single mom, the insufferable, paper pushing boss, the team of people that no one believes in who prove themselves in the end, the evil foreigner and oh, the weak link in the group who betrays them.

The spirits of Ancient Indians on whose burial ground the hotel is built? The serial killer? Are these people seemingly normal… Read more

Okay, if you are expecting a horror movie, you might be disappointed. This is not really a traditional horror movie. There are no long lingering shots of zombies preying on humans. There are no nightie clad nubile lasses being chased, as they stumble and scream to get away. And by horror movie standards, there is not much blood and gore either.
What this movie does is different. It makes you think about fear. The world is being swept by a virus that turns you into a flesh eating zombie in mere seconds. There are a few people left. A man who retains his innocence only to lose it while he kills a child in self defense. A woman who has hardened herself in the interests of survival. A… Read more
