A direct-to-video dreary zombie movie.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This is the sort of horror film that hooks you from frame one with both smarts and frights.

...there's simply no overlooking the general sense of incompetence that's been hard-wired into virtually every aspect of the production.

The Plague certainly isn't an awful little chiller flick, but given its crafty opening premise (and the attached name of Clive Barker), I was hoping for a little more from the follow-through.

Audience Reviews for Clive Barker's The Plague

It is a good concept and story, just poorly executed. I think that has less to do with the acting/direction and more to do with the material. Clive Barker is a great storyteller, but a lot of the what happens is internal to the characters. It makes for a compelling read, but is next to impossible to capture the same layers and depth visually. So, this is definitely one where you want to read the book and skip the film.

Decent film, good performance by James Vanderbeek. Interesting plot, its not scary but entertaining. Nice ending.

At first, I thought this looked like a promising scary flick. Imagine all children around the world suddenly falling into a coma and after ten years, wake up as mass murdering zombie-like teens. Would have given me a good scare if everyone in the cast of didn't act like everyone else. James Van Der Beek and the lady co-star were annoyingly unemotional while the guy who played "sam" was so over-the-top cheesy that if only i didn't want to know how the movie ended, i would have changed channels. What's even worse is that the ending was so bad and as much as i would like to make sense of it, it doesnt make any sense at all.
