After a chemical leak at the Hope Centre in Papua New Guinea (an organisation devoted to feeding underdeveloped countries) turns its staff into flesh-eating zombies, a four-man commando squad led by Mike London are sent to investigate. They run into a TV news crew led by celebrity reporter Lea, who are after the same story, but when they discover that the entire country has been overrun by zombies, what are the chances of them getting the message across? I know people seem to give this movie a lot of shit, and for what? Sure, while is certainly isn't the greatest zombie movie ever made it definitely not the worst. I mean, I've seen major Hollywood zombie movies with crazy effects and bigger budgets that suck WAY more than this movie. It has an awesome soundtrack (and so what if it is what Goblin used for other movies), mediocre effects and acting, but it has a lot of heart and the stock footage it uses (another reason why people seem to give it so much shit) seems to add another level to it, I really enjoy seeing footage of actual tribes in New Guinea that they tie in with the movie, its cool. So bottom line is this, this movie might not go down as one of the greatest zombie movies of all time, but it should go down as a movie that delivers on what it promises, and that's a good, gory, cheesy time.
