Excellent gory horror: Not your father's zombie flick

"My wife summed it up like this: "It was unpredictable and realistic...it seemed like it could happen...it was so cerebral!"
She's right. This is a cool not-your-typical zombie flick. For one thing, our heroines aren't zombies. They have, apparently, contracted a disease that drives them to eat human flesh.
And eat human flesh, they do! This is one of the goriest movies I've seen in a long time... and done much more realistically than most zombie movies.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE NotLD and ALL ROMERO'S CHILDREN! This movie is just different... and worth your time.
The plot is basically this: Two different groups of women are hiding out, suffering with this disease that they contracted when they were bitten by other victims. The disease forces them to eat human flesh. Are they zombies? One of the actresses in the extras says that they are. I didn't think so. But they are, I suppose, THINKING zombies.
The actresses are great, btw."
Great features for a bad movie

"I love when movies have commentary but a bad movie brings bad commentary. Maybe worth a rent but don't waste your money like I did."

"Hmm, low budget, independently made British Zombie flick. Bleak and slow but strangely compelling, not unlike being sucked into a world of the undead. You come back to life watching the voice over extra on the DVD which is a blast, these guys are funny! It's good to know independents like Parkinson are out there doing this kind of stuff."
The low budget film

"Dead creatures is a very different film, if you are expecting a american glossy shocker, then you will find it boring. If you are looking for something more gritty and slowly paced then it's worth a watch."
