Movie Info

Adapted from 30 Days of Night scribe Steve Niles' chilling graphic novel, this nightmarish tale of terror follows a small band of zombie apocalypse survivors in Reno, Nevada as they fight for their lives against all odds. A mysterious blast has transformed most of the world's population into rampaging flesh-eaters. As the zombie horde grows, the desperate few who avoided the blast seek shelter in an abandoned casino. But with every passing day the undead grow stronger, faster, and hungrier, making any chance of escape seem increasingly unlikely. Lance Reddick (The Wire), Miko Hughes (Mercury Rising), and Evalena Marie star.

Never manages to sustain any energy for more than three or four minutes at a time.

Just as forgettable as the source material...

All things considered, Remains is reasonably entertaining escapism and is a fun enough apocalyptic fright fest.

Audience Reviews for Steve Niles' Remains

I've enjoyed other Steve Niles material, but this just never found anything new to say to me, and the only thing different about it was setting it in Las Vegas, but populating it with annoying characters never allowed us to find anyone to really root for or care about, so what's the point in watching? Pass, unless you're just a die-hard fan of anyone involved.

Remains (Colin Theys, 2011) Another film based on another Steve Niles piece, with expected results. This one, which pays tribute to 80s B movie Night of the Comet, sets its action in Las Vegas, and if you've seen a half-dozen random zombie movies, none of that action is going to be unpredictable-you have zombies, you have holed-up survivors, and you have the group who intrude on the survivors' territory and mess everything up, in this case military types led by Fringe's Lance Reddick. There is some amusement to be had with a hamster-ball-like contraption that allows folks to wander around outside, but that is in no way enough to allow you to suffer through this ridiculous attempt at horror. 1/2

Remains was a movie made for Chiller. It had a TV budget but besides the army truck crash scene, and a few explosions I would give the low budget movie a good grade. Your main characters all have baggage but when it comes down to it you don't care too much about the characters you care more about how they are going to survive.
