Storyline

At Guesta Verde University, the deranged Professor Curien is trying to bring back the dead, killing students for the experiment. There is an outbreak of zombies at the campus, and the government sends an NSA medical research team, formed by Dr. Alexandra Morgan, a.k.a. Nightingale and lieutenant Ellis, with a special force led by lieutenant Dalton, to try to get the zero sample from the first-generation zombie. The team has a very short time to accomplish their mission and leave the place before missiles are sent to destroy the area. However, the place is crowded with hyper sapiens and the group has to fight to survive. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When the team is in the library, a 'zombie' librarian looks at team members and puts her finger to her lips making a 'hush' sound. This could be a nod to "Ghostbusters" (1984) See more »

Goofs

(at around 36 mins) When O'Conner is looking at his shaking hand, the Sergeant Major turns and lights him up with his weapon-mounted flashlight (which anyone trained with a gun would never do since you are pointing your gun at your comrade). When the Sgt Major turns, O'Conner's face lights up from the flashlight. The camera cuts back to the Sgt Major and he turns to continue walking. When it cuts back to O'Conner, his face is still lit up from the flashlight. See more »

So much better than the first one...
24 September 2006 | by ded_meetSee all my reviews

I'm a zombie-flick fan. =) I'll admit that readily, but it took me several months before I finally saw this movie because I was so utterly disappointed with the first one. In the first movie they had these incredibly annoying, flashing video game-sequences or something cut into the movie - probably to save money since that way they only had to make half a movie.

None of that crap here thank god! This was actually a pretty decent horror movie - with zombies! I say decent but for a zombie movie it was pretty darn good. The special effects were better than average for a zombie movie, so was actually everything about this movie. Even the zombies stagger better in this one than usual! The story has a good pace with plenty of "plot" and action through-out the movie, and the acting was surprisingly good. And with that I mean that some of the actors were actually really good and the others decent!

My verdict is that this movie is in no way a future classic by any means, but it is a decent horror movie and as far as zombie-movies are concerned - definitely a trend-breaker in the sense that it falls into the "decent"-category as a whole. Ususally zombie-flicks are either really good - or quite the opposite. So if you are looking for a decent horror movie or a good zombie-movie - see this one. But avoid the prequel at any cost...
