Another p00p stain from Hacks James Dudelson & Ana Clavell who must be making money licensing Romero movies & making really bad sequels to them (the other being Creepshow 3). These guys give Uwe Boll a run for his money as "worst director ever".

Oh, in this film, you can HEAR guns shoot...but they don't flash? How much does a gun flash special effect cost anyway?

In name only sequel to the Romero classic. This film is an incompetent mess. Cliched characters, bad dialogue & a story that makes no sense. George A. Romero had nothing whatsoever to do with this film.

Avoid at all costs

"This movie, and I use that word loosely here, carries the title of Day of the Dead mainly in an attempt to lure in fans of George Romero's "Dead" films. Day of the Dead 2: Contagium, is in no way, shape, or form, associated with the legendary horror director, and is said to be a "tribute". This "tribute" is basically amateurish film making at the very worst, with horrible acting and editing, and the blood and gore effects are incredibly fake looking. The story, or lack there of, attempts to tie into the storyline of Romero's films, but it makes no sense at all. Now I know this crew had little to work with, but amateur horror movies of the past, such as the classic original Evil Dead and even the Dead Next Door, have proven that you can do a lot with a little. The fact that Anchor Bay, which has given us great Special Editions of the aforementioned films and even Romero's Dawn of the Dead and the real Day of the Dead, would release this is mind boggling, but I guess everyone is into cash-in's these days. All in all, Day of the Dead 2 is beyond bad, and it should definitely be avoided by everyone."

"I thought Ed Wood was dead. From the bad sets to even worse acting, this movie is not good. Since they only had the rights to the name Day of the Dead, they had to slap a number 2 on the end of the title and put this out. But if you are trying to tie this into the Romero films, this would be more like a prequel to Night of the Living Dead. There is some okay gore, but most of the special effects are very bad. Don't bother with this one."
Commits the deadly sin of being boring . . .

"Oh dear! After a slightly entertaining first five minutes (the inept special forces team and least gave me a few laughs as they 'contain' a hospital with their rather pathetic skills), the movie degenerates into a talkfest with dull characters doing amazingly dull things - but do we have an exciting finale? Well no! No no no no no. A few people falling on others and pretending to eat them. The lead characters doing nothing in particular. The lead bad guys doing nothing in particular. A few messy looking zombies that are ineffective because - gasp, the things they are doing are so tension free, relatively goreless and frankly dull.

I'm sorry, folks, but the crime of dullness has been committed . . . this movie is found guilty on all fronts.

I know. You're going to watch it anyway because it has zombies. But I tried to warn you, I really did."
