"I am sorry I wasted my time with this. The acting was terrible. The plot was silly. Why they used a potato gun to kill the zombies I will never understand. The one good thing about this movie was, oh wait there was nothing good about this movie."

"WOW What can I say...?
1) ACTING: Usually, when it comes to low budget / no budget indies, I try to be lenient, but MAN! The quality of acting here was pretty low. The male lead seems to mumble through all his lines unless he's screaming or yelling at someone. The 2 baseball players are just terrible. I would have to say the best actor here was the actress that played the character of Geller, but that's really not saying a lot.
2) PRODUCTION: Here, I believe is the best part of the movie. I felt that the filming was good, scenes were well lit, and characters and action scenes were well focused. The music / soundtrack was effective in conveying a creepy, unnerving 'Silent Hill' type of background. That's about all I have that's good to say. The Grim Reaper was just another actor in a hooded robe with a scythe, the zombie make up was minimal at best, and a lot of the CG is iffy at best. The plot isn't necessarily bad, it's just that it never seemed to be fleshed out, and the viewer is left with many questions that go unanswered, such as 'Why is this happening?"
3) ZOMBIES: The zombies in this one pretty much the Romero Shamblers that we've all grown to love, but occassionally, a Snyder Runner would pop in. The zombie make up ( as mentioned above) was pretty minimal and consisted of white / grey faces with raccoon eyes and little to none facial applications.
4) THE CAUSE: No explanation is given, other than it is "the end of days."
5) NUDITY: None. (Not that it would've helped)
YOWSA! This was a pretty rough watch. I think this is one of the rare times where I have actually enjoyed the quality of the filming than anything else in a movie. For something to be so bad, but to look so nice was bizarre. The Director, William Victor Schotten, has done better things previously, and I was surprised to find this movie so disappointing. It's like he just stopped by for the paycheck. Sadly, I can not reccomend this one at all. Give 'Sabbath' a pass.
