I wish I could give this craptastic film ZERO or NEGATIVE STARS. Someone, probably the director gave it five stars - don't fall for that! This is an honest review of a terrible, tepid movie. This was an utter waste of time. Acting, special effects, story, music - all terrible. This movie had so many plot holes in it, the draft nearly froze me solid. I haven't one positive thing to say about it. At an hour and 20 minutes, it felt like it was four hours long. Many scenes of people standing around talking - with terrible dialouge. The SFX were just bad. The story was insipid. That's the problem with low budget zombie movies - they usually stink. People get some chumps to put up the dough, then do nothing with it. With a little thought behind it other than "Oh wow! We're making a movie!", this might have been nearly worth watching. Instead it was boring, silly and worthless. Just another addition to the crap heap of history. I could go on and add some spoilers, perhaps saving someone from actually buying this (How it even got released to DVD amazes me) but there may be someone out there who actually thinks this is worth seeing. Here's a hint: it isn't. It's worse than the remake of Day of the Dead and every copy of that should be burned, or used in a film school on how not to make a movie. This could be part of that course as well.

"Night of the Living Dead meets 28 Days / Weeks Later!
1) ACTING: The acting was pretty good. There were a few people who I personally dreaded when they had a scene, which was bad, because it took me out of the movie and away from the viewing experience. But, the majority fot he actors were decent and should pursue Hollywood.
2) PRODUCTION: While original ideas for zombie movies are few and far between, A decent director can take something that we've seen before, and if not make it seem new, can at least spice it up to where we, the viewers, want to watch. This movie falls somewhere between those two. Familiarity is comfortable, but often boring. And the director really tries to keep us going. The movie is very fast paced, and the viewer really isn't given time to become bored or distracted. Familiar ideas are presented to the viewer, but with a little twist. The camerawork on this film wasn't too bad, and the cameraman did attempt to give the viewer some nifty scenes. The blood and gore was pretty good, and the soundtrack added to the film's suspense and uneasiness. And the homage to the original Night of the Living Dead was a nice touch, too.
3) THE ZOMBIES: Overall, not a whole lot of different ideas appear with our zombie friends, but there are a few twists that I won't mention that will pleasantly surprise you.
4) THE CAUSE: A lethal toxin is released in the air supply.
5) NUDITY: None.
To sum it all up, this is a pretty good indie flick. When a good indie zombie flick is released, it's such a nice surprise. So many times, less than stellar zombie indie fare is released, and we, as lovers of the genre, accept it, as we have become so used to it. When movies like Day X are released, it raises the bar for other low budget indies, and there could be trouble for the next set of zombie filmmakers. While Day X does have budget issues, it covers for them pretty good. It may be the same old roller coaster ride, but with a few new twists and turns. I would not be surprised to see a sequel ('Day Y?') and hopefully, it will be as good as the original.
RATING: 3.5 out of 5"
