The movie starts off with promise, as a drug dealer is on a high speed chase in the desert from a policewoman. He gets away but his car is shot. So he walks to the nearest town, which is an old West-looking village inhabited by zombies. He's attacked and bitten. Then we go to the main characters of the story-a bunch of college-aged students on their way to a school debate. They end up in that town and have to fight off all of these zombies. There's a backstory about how 'Bloody Bill' was killed by the townsfolk and that he had his revenge on everyone there. It still doesn't explain why they've taken the form of flesh-eating zombies or why their bite is infectious (as in every other zombie movie). The problem I have the the producer/distributor, THE ASYLUM, is that although they release many horror films each year and have good box art to go along with them, they seem not to know what the horror fan (not the buyers at Blockbuster) wants. There's just no 'umfh' to their movies. They aren't horror fans and it shows (just watch those stupid SCARECROW movies as a prime example). As a result this is just an adequate zombie movie using recycled ideas.
