Audience Reviews for Plaguers
Really really awful. Zombie like alien creatures in space. This movie really had nothing going for it. The acting was bad. The story was bad. The creatures looked ok. It just sucked.
This one almost rises to the level of "so bad, it's good," but doesn't quite make it there. Borrowing liberally from the Alien franchise as well as zombie cinema, and perhaps just a little bit from John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness, Plaguers delivers contagious zombies on a starship created by an evil orb of mysterious green energy... or liquid... it's not too clear. There's even a "secret" android (you'll figure out who it is the first time the character appears), makeshift weapons, and even the climax of the film is lifted almost directly from the first Alien movie (no cat, though). The acting is humorously bad; you will laugh at some of the performances, especially those of some of the sexy space pirates posing as nurses. The astro-zombies are occasionally effective, but mostly come off pretty silly, which would have worked better if this flick didn't appear to be taking itself so seriously. Unless you have a fetish for zombies-in-space flicks done in a style that brings to mind someone ripping off a Roger Corman knock-off of a popular movie, you're not missing anything here.
When I first started watching this movie the acting was so bad I did not think I would finish watching this movie. Either the actors improved or I got accustomed to the bad acting. I would say there is 3 parts to this movie. 1st part is the main spaceship and it's crew. The 2nd part is a stranded ship and their crew. The third part is a alien artifact that is recovered by the first crew. The greater part of the movie is centered around the artifact turning 1 person into a zombie like creature, who then attempts to turn others into a zombie like creature by infecting them with this green like substance. The two crews who have a conflict between them must work together to survive, and what we the audience get is a movie that is your typical zombie movie except on a spaceship. The acting was poor but improved, the CGI was horrid, at one point when the spaceship stopped it let out what looked like steam into space, you could tell the blow torch's was CGI and not real fire. The explosions was obvious CGI. The makeup was fine, but a few zombies looked like something out of a 1950 horror movies. When the zombies were chasing crew members it reminded me when you are playing with little kids and chasing the kids around the backyard, you swing your arms wildly saying I am going to get you, but you don't get them and the little kids laugh and laugh On the plus side this movie did not bore me, it just had very little going for it, and I would say the reason for that was the movie was obviously on a low budget, but I will give the director credit because he did a good job with the budget he was given.
