Review – Dead Men Walking

This movie has more puking than movies about puking. Zombie blood barf appears to be the theme of the first half of the production. But once most of the cast finally makes the transition to zombie-dom, it’s mostly straight splatter from there. All you need to know about the plot is that the dreaded zombie virus gets loose in a maximum security prison, transforming prisoners and guards alike into the rampaging undead. For awhile there’s some pretense at dialogue, all whispered in sub-sonic levels in keeping with Asylum’s usual technical standards. But that’s swiftly abandoned in favor of endless gore shots. In a way, the honest embrace of pointless carnage in place of a plot actually made this a slightly better movie than it might otherwise have been. Verdict: see if desperate
