Elevator Pitch: There has been a massive zombie outbreak on the planet, but it has been sorted, leaving some zombies on a single island where they are shot for sport. The organisers of the event have a place called the ReZort where a group of people are welcomed and after a go on a firing range embark on the hunt in Land Rovers with guides. But one of then has an agenda and has spiked the resort’s systems which release the zombies from their restraints and their fenced areas. The resort itself is overrun. People are bitten and themselves turn into zombies. The group try to make their way to safety, where-ever it may be, but are gradually be being picked off. Will anyone survive?
Content: There is no sex, or nudity or even bikinis (despite one of the posters). There is drinking of sparkling wine. Almost immediately the guys in their Land Rovers are dispatched from the fortified bunker into the outland and kill a few manacled zombies at close range. Then they are out in the country shooting the undead at long range. Once the resort has been over-run people are running about being chased by grotesque zombies – who can run as well. The group who start off as eight I think, see some of their number attacked and bitten. Finally they are running about in dark corridors.
A View: I felt that the basic premise, that zombies, no longer human could be used for sport was distressing, and in the film’s reality governments of the world would have had to approve the facility for operation. Extremely unlikely you would think if they had just survived a zombie virus. Then we have the action, just people running away from the undead is not quite enough. So choose another zombie movie there are a lot out there.
