For a low budget Zombie film "Raiders of the Damned" delivers good entertainment. This film however I would only suggest to die hard fans of this sub-genre that can leave their disbeliefs as soon as they hit play. In this film the zombies are fully aware of who they were and what they are. They also talk and are capable of a little zombie love action ( if you get my drift ). The special effects are CGI and you can tell it is. The zombie make-up is decent ( got everything to full on make up to masks ) however and includes the shamblers as well as the runners. All in all I'm glad I ordered this film and I am sure I will view it again in the future.

FILM-MAKING OF THE DAMNED

"This film is so terrible that I'm not going to spend a lot of time trashing it. Even given that the finest minds in film-making rarely devote themselves to the zombie genre, this is bad stuff.
Some films are so bad they can be amusing--at least if viewed with a group of your friends who are in the proper mood. This is NOT one of those kind of bad films. It's just plain bad.
Read the two reviews online at Movie Review Query Engine before laying down money for this abomination. It's not even worth renting."

Romero's 'Day of the Dead + Sigourney Weaver's 'Aliens' = Raiders of the Damned
1) ACTING: The acting was pretty average. If Richard Grieco isn't on drugs, then he needs to be. His performance was terrible. I hope he ran to the bank to cash his paycheck before the producers demanded it back. The other actors did the best they could with what they had to work with; especially making cliched characters seem fresh.
2) PRODUCTION: The soundtrack was average. It seemed like canned action music (or is that "muzak?"). Many plot threads go unanswered. The sub-par CGI is really noticeable. The script is overflowing with "used too many times" cliches. The more elaborate zombie make up was really not used well, as the viewer can see seem lines and parts of faces that just don't move, even though the actor is talking. The script had a number of boring parts which makes the viewer look for something else to do. I really think that if the director had a decent budget, this movie would not have been as bad as it is. Minimal blood and gore.
3) THE ZOMBIES: Many a variety here. We see walking skeletons, to rotting zombies to mummified corpses. Some of the zombies in this movie are just like normal everyday people. They walk, they talk, they shoot guns and give orders, they have sex. Yeah. You read that right. Zombie porn. (Insert your own joke here).
4) THE CAUSE: Nuclear-mutated synthetic virus.
5) NUDITY: None.
Sigh...another low budget disappoint hits the video stores. While I do get the impression that the director wanted to make an action packed zombie filled adventure, he obviously did not have what he needed, whether it be skills, money, whatever, to do so. And sadly, that leaves us, the zombie aficionado, out in the lurch. For every excellent zombie movie we get, there are dozens others that we will watch that will disappoint. This is one of the latter.
RATING: 1 out of 5"
