Review – Day of the Dead 2: Contageum

I suppose “Contagion” would have been too much like a real word to use for the title of a stinker like this. The folks who brought us Horror 101 now teach another lesson in how not to make a scary movie. This appears to be some kind of prequel to the third chapter in Romero’s Dead series, which raises the question of why – if this is likewise presumably a prequel to the first two as well – they didn’t name it after one of the more successful episodes. But even linking it to the relatively-not-as-good Day of the Dead was too much. This is one of those no-script-no-actors hunks of junk made on the cheap for the video market. The production doesn’t even live up to the lax standards of its sub-genre, as the gore is too crappy to provide much entertainment and there’s no nudity at all. I tried fast-forwarding through some of the dull parts, but that turned out to be most of the movie. Wish I’d skipped it
