If you were a fan of the previous Zombie movies, you will not want to miss this one! Often movies get worse as creators come up with the 2nd, third, and 4th movies-- this one really isn't bad, though. I don't think they're trying to ride on the coattails of the previous movies. Some weak points, lots of strong points, tons of entertainment, and overall a wonderfully made zombie movie! Truly a MUST SEE.

Not for the weak o stomach

"There is a distinct difference between American and Italian/European ZOmbie films. In America the zombies do eat people, but tend to look more human and the cannibalism is cut to a minimum. However ITalian/Eurpean Zombie films go all out in the gore factor. THus this comes in as the dubbed American Release of the movie After Death, released as Zombie 4. The story revolves around a woman who witnessed the grisly murder of parents on an island that is cursed with the living dead at a young age. She is traveling there with mercenaries and friends and end up in one of the doors of hell as she must battle the living dead. Problem is that there are hundreads of them and they just love human flesh.Just like any other Italian Zombie film the focus is not so much on story, but on the gore and trust me there is an abundance of that. It overall is very gorey and overall for the average viewer very disgusting. However for Gore hounds this is another title to place in your library, for die hard gore hounds only."
Well that sucked....

"Well this is definitely the least entertaining zombie film I've ever seen, falling well behind such questionable entries as 'Nightmare City' and 'Hell of the Living Dead'. Despite the fact that they aren't really related, 'Zombie 4' is relatively reminiscent of 'Zombi 3', with the jungle isle setting and the emphasis on gunning down the zombies. I actually kind like 'Zombi 3' but the action scenes in this movie are just so damn boring, to go with the weak, played out effects and lame zombies with silly false teeth that stick like 4 inches out of their faces. And when it's trying to be tense it's just incredibly tedious. You're thinking, just eat em, for God's sake, and we can go home.
I don't even recommend this to hardcore zombie fans, for a single viewing. It's real boring. Or maybe the formula is just wearing thin for me. Not that I've tired of zombie films. Perish the thought. Just that I've watched them enough that the mere fact that it's a zombie film isn't going to get it a drop of credit anymore. No matter what the cause, I didn't like it.
Like Zombi 3, just not as entertaining

"If you take Zombie 4 for what it is, you will find entertainment in it. It is, of course, a poor Italain gore epic. It portrays poor acting, poor gore effects, poor directing, etc. Muct like Zombi 3, it entertains for all the wrong reasons it was intended for....it makes you laugh. It takes place...oh my goodness....on a tropical island! How original! The dead rise and attack some scientists on the island and then some visitors. The zombies aren't your typical zombies; these ones run, jump, THINK, and use weapons. Again if you take this film for what it is, you will find some entertainment in it. One complaint is that the actual title in the film says just "After Death" and the box art says "Zombie 4: After Death". I hate when company's release movies like this. Please put the title of the actual movie on the box! No more white lies!"
Weak Entry into the Zombie Genre

"This is one of the worst zombie films ever made. The acting is amateurish, the special effects are weak, the same camera shots are recycled again and again, etc. The plot centers around a research station's staff who are massacred by the living dead (who, by the way, look like ninjas) conjured up by an upset medicine man. The one survivor is a little girl who grows up and (surprise, surprise) ends up back on the island with a motley group of friends who end up fighting the living dead still roaming the place. After arrival on the island, one of the most laughable parts of the film happens. The island is supposedly out in the remote Pacific but yet the main characters arrive on a small motorboat. Furthermore, the viewer is asked to believe that the three men who are supposedly mercenaries (two I could believe but one looked like the lead singer for a synthpop band) have girlfriends who look like they stepped out of a 1980's mall. In another laughable scene, the people need help for their boat but, when one of the men sees someone (it turns out to be on the living dead) in the vegetation, he doesn't yell, "Stop, PLEASE! We need help!" No, he decides to pursue the zombie who inexplicably runs away and then BEATS the zombie with his fists. That's not a good way to get help. If you want a good zombie film, get Dawn of the Dead."
Now this is a movie with substance!

"Wow....what can I say for Zombie 4. Seriously, this movie was hilarious! First of all, it starts out with a family of a mom, dad, and like a 3 year old girl. They are runnin around on this tropical island (just like all other zombie movies) and the mom and dad die. So this girl ends up escaping somehow. Trust me, I have spent many a day thinking and pondering her escape, and for the life of me, I don't think that a 3 year old would know how to escape the wrath of flesh eating zombies and sail to the coast of a safe island by herself....but whatever. Anyway, some years later, this girl comes back to the island, unknowing that it is the same island that claimed the life of her parents. She arrives with some young girl friends, and some really old Vietnam Vets (or some type of really old creepy guys). Yeah, don't feel bad, I didn't get it either. I mean, what young girl wants to hang around some drunken old men on their tropical vacation? But anyway...zombies chase 'em around, and around, trying to eat their heads, you know, the usual. But the real question is...do they escape???? Find out in Zombie 4....
Recomendations: Go see Zombie 3, it's even more hilarious.
Things I learned from Zombie 4: Seriously, if you are a young girl, don't go vacationing with some old men. They just end up ruining your vacation. Whether they hit on you or they get their heads eaten, young girls + old men = no fun at all."
