When foreman Frank shows new employee Freddy a secret military experiment in a supply warehouse, the two klutzes accidentally release a gas that reanimates corpses into flesh-eating zombies. As the epidemic spreads throughout Louisville, Ky., and the creatures satisfy their hunger in gory and outlandish ways, Frank and Freddy fight to survive with the help of their boss and a mysterious mortician.
The best and the coolest zombie/living dead movie that there is. This is my opinion. I cannot tell you how many times that I have seen this movie. I love the story for this movie, and I love all of the characters. There is really nothing bad about this movie at all.
The cast is great for the movie. James Karen has been in many horror movie. He never let us down in any role that he performs. Thom Mathews has done the same. He did these movies as well as playing Tommy all grown up in one of the Friday the 13th movies. Linnea Quigley is one of the greatest scream queens of the 80's. She was almost in this movie.
The special effects on this movie were so awesome that it is not even funny. Each one of the living dead characters look amazing. One of the best ones is the one that is trapped in the tank that was held in the warehouse. He was so damn cool for the movie. He was my favorite. All of them were great, but the other great one in the movies was the half woman that they tied down. That looked so damn good. The make-up work was incredible for that character and for all of the other ones.
I do not feel that there is anything at all wrong with this movie. I loved every minute of it. If you have never seen this movie, you need to watch it, ASAP. It is necessary for every horror fan out there. This is also one to add to your collection. Enjoy.
