Plot Summary:
"This film pays homage to George A. Romero's classic zombie films and provides both a prequel and a sequel to his 'Trilogy Of The Dead'. A virus, that had been previously released and then contained on a U.S. military hospital in 1968, is once again unearthed and released by an inmate of the civilian mental hospital built on the same site. This virus transforms those infected to mindless and bloodthirsty zombies that feed off their fellow patients."

Who the hell are Taurus Films? They keep putting out these sub-par genre movies much to the chagrin of fans everywhere, and yet we keep seeing duff unofficial sequels, sequels to their own crappy films and now they've begun snapping up the rights to quality franchises in order to make crappy sequels to those too.

This unofficial sequel to a film they are about to remake follows their basic outline for any film, it is boring throughout, and we don't even get any hint to a zombie rampage until about 89 minutes in, which only makes you grimace at the fact that the film will be on for more than 90 minutes.

Boring characters, average actors, possibly the same location they use in every other movie and the same technical gaffes such as bad lighting, boom bobbing and crew reflections in just about every shot in the movie make this another entry into amateur hour.

OVERALL SUMMARY
The company's first and best feature (so far) was only mildly enjoyable, so how's about you try stepping things up a bit there Jim and Ana. If you mess up Creepshow 3 I'll be contacting you for an explanation.
