Days of Darkness Reviews
One of the best storylines ever.
Yeah the plot isn't great and nor is some of the acting, but there's some good gore to be had here.
Well worth checking out if you're a big zombie fan, like myself.
Would it be nice if there was better acting? Yeah, sure - that's always the answer for most movies though. How does this bad acting compare to typical zombie movie bad acting? It's a good 40% better than typical crap Z-movie acting, as in the acting is actually tolerable.
How about the visuals? The crew hasn't got millions, and I don't actually know how much they had to work with - but the effects in this are damn cool. I like the old fashioned use of production effects, and a lot of the makeup/fx is pretty damn awesome, definitely in the higher end of Z-movies.
Could the script be better and carry a bit more continuity? Almost always, but in this case, I'm too tickled by the parasite alien babies growing in zombies' scrotums and the end "solution" to the zombie plague. It's a funny and interesting Z-movie, and actually enjoyable.
Not the greatest zombie flick, but I've been watching a lot of really shitty zombie movies lately and this is one of the better ones. Still bad. I'd put it nowhere near the good ones, but this truely is the best of the worst.
It didn't look horible (not filmed in one's basement). It had some good dialog and character development. It had some good deaths and some good emotions. And for the plot.. it's a zombie movie, what do you want? The plot is this: survive. The same plot as every other zombie movie...
