A teenager escapes an alien invasion. More developed sequel to Hungerford, this time riffing on 28 Days Later and Heart of Darkness as much as Heinlein’s The Puppetmasters. Still some rough edges, but an improvement over the first instalment.
Alice returns to Racoon City to face down Dr Isaacs, lured by the promise of a vaccine to the T-Virus. The sixth instalment of this midlist franchise is surprisingly feisty, with bags of action and some good lines. For fans only, maybe, but they won’t be disappointed.
Visitors to a zombie safari island resort face danger when park security is compromised. Perfunctory undead spin on Jurassic Park with no surprises, little in the way of fun, and only one decent jumpscare. Meh.
A military leader clashes with an idealistic doctor in the aftermath of a zombie outbreak. This second loose remake of Romero’s Day of the Dead adds little but a photogenic cast and some reasonable gore FX among the usual tropes and poor character decisions.
Survivors of a new ice age find a neighbouring colony has been taken over by feral cannibals. Patchy SF/horror which can’t decide which old story it wants to tell (base under siege, cannibal zombies, epidemic, road movie) so has a bash at several.
A family hides in the woods after a disease outbreak. Sombre and effective post-apocalyptic horror, more focused on survivors’ paranoia than on raging zombies and the like.
A woman hides in a forest after the death of her daughter and husband in a zombie outbreak. Low-key and downbeat z-flick which makes the most of its limited resources in focusing on grief and character rather than on splatter.
