DVD Review: INFECTION Z

PrintE-mail Written by Luke Riley

Review: Infection Z / Cert: 18 / Director: Glenn Ciano / Screenplay: Glenn Ciano / Starring: Michael Masden, William Forsythe, Christy Romano / Release Date: Out Now

With the release of World War Z, it seemed inevitable a low budget film of similar name and themes would surface. This inevitability comes in the form of Infection Z, a back-to-basics, CGI-less zombie fest. Some things need to stay dead, stay in their grave, or any other death related pun meaning a thing shouldn't be done.

The only positive to this film is Michael Madsen, leader of the pack, barking orders at the gang of survivors. These survivors are the most mismatched group of people ever left to survive the onslaught of zombies. Zombies which instil very little fear and more “oh look at that unexpected occurrence....more tea?”, if one was watching from the sidelines. The story, if it can be called that, is merely a patchwork of events sewn together in hopes of appearing coherent. The actors act with as much as sincerity as they can with what they have, which is a long episode of a bad TV show.

It's also shot quite interestingly, in the manner a comic book or graphic novel. This works in its favour for a time but interest soon withers away. Do yourself a favour and avoid this film as though it were a rabid pack of zombies. Blood definitely may not flow, but it poses a definite danger to the brain cells.

Extras: None
