However the cover for this one leads one to think of zombies or "28 days later" or "rec' but it's not.
In fact this is about a group of scientists who are infected by a mutant h1n1 virus and then attacked by a android.
It's pure shlock! lots lots of almost no budget horror movies through the ages that I enjoy so well.
This fits into that scene with it's sets which are basically some sort of wharehouse with designer walls and plastic sheeting even. That's supposed to be the lab. THey have mabybe for stages set up! The android looks like a transvestite sorta and talks with a srrange voice. The basic story though of evil labs allowing a virus to escape so that they can make money from the vaciine is a good idea. IT's just that they had no money at all to make this movie with! If you don't like superlow budget akward movies then stay away from this one. BUt I like them and so found this to be what I expected. The dvd looks excellent and it's dark because that's how they shot this movie. At least it's on film though! The acting isn't terrible as one person said , instead these newer actors do the best with what they have and are believable as dying plague victims. However the direction is all over the place like you'd expect.
One by one they start feeling sick and begin to cough and spit up what looks like dark, chocolate syrup. Soon enough a couple of the sickies pair up and do what bunnies do best and as I have always said..and I quote myself..."Nothin' does lovin' better than matin' while coughing and spittin' up dark chocolate syrup on each other."
The doctor has a twinge of conscience and actually goes down to the basement to apologize to the doomed. He also reveals the location of the vaccine and the address of his benefactress. This so enrages the albino that he races down to the basement semi-automatic in hand and scolds the doctor by blowing his brains out. Someone jams a hypodermic needle in the albino's eye and since most clear thinking albinos like two eyes, this one puts the gun to his own head and shoots. Funny thing is the blood spurt from the exit wound looks suspiciously like dark chocolate syrup. To make a long review a little shorter, two escape, apparently find the vaccine and the uber rich dame ends up infected and confined to the basement while the cured couple watch. The End.
The movie had a little potential despite being reasonably far-fetched but the movie ran into a couple of problems.
It sucked. The actors sucked. The photography sucked. The dialogue was written by a retard on crack and that sucked. The production values were thread-bare and shoddy and I'm guessing the bulk of the budget was spent on......dare I say it?----dark chocolate syrup!
I have to admit though I was sucked-in by the DVD cover and that really sucked but even so, I am sure that is easier to swallow than say a cup of...DARK CHOCOLATE SYRUP.
