Movie Info

Slick, wacky, and chomping at the bit with gobs of human-on-zombie-violence, EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES is a Grecian take on SHAUN OF THE DEAD crossed with 28 DAYS LATER. Millennia ago in ancient Greece, blood-thirsty zombies begin wreaking havoc on humans, and only a mysterious cloaked hero (Billy Zane) and his otherworldly weapons can save them. Flash forward to the present day when Athens is once again plagued by the undead, and a ragtag band of human survivors is on the run. Among them are a taxi driver who seems to be immortal, a pair of hot-blooded soldiers with some serious chemistry, and a doctor who can't stand to get his shoes dirty while stomping zombie heads. Meanwhile, the elusive hero is back -- but zombies are only half the problem. With less than a day before Greece is bombed to contain the zombie virus, it's a race against time for the remaining humans. A highly cinematic bloodbath that's just as clever as it is gory, EVIL IN THE TIME OF HEROES has it all: lighting-fast action, realistically terrifying zombies, and a healthy dose of fun.

  • It tries to make up for what it lacks in coherence and character development by splattering guts-and, occasionally, the head-spiraling prophecies of Billy Zane-all over the place.

    Ohhh... kay... This is one nutty, nutty movie. I wish I hadn't been so sleepy when I saw it, but I don't think it would have made much sense either way. There's a zombie apocalypse going on in Greece, and there are dudes using it as an excuse to open fire on people (just because they like shooting folk). These are the bad guys. There are also good guys who, to the best of my understanding, are led by a dude protected by Badass Magic. It's also unclear what is important in this story, because there are times when the zombies are an immediate threat, others when the evil snipers are the main villain, and other times where our heroes can roam around in peace. And there's also Billy Zane, the inexplicable ninja-monk throwback that comes bearing a prophecy, I guess. The TAD festival director explained that they shot all his footage in a single day, then decided to use every frame they had shot somewhere in the film. There's a lot to enjoy about this fiilm and the director seems to enjoy covering people head-to-toe in blood, but it's hard to know what to make of this. It feels like it was made by hacks.
