It starts out quite slow but hang in there because it picks up steam and becomes bloody and tons of fun. The story is pretty much the same as many zombie stories, a pesticide being sprayed on the group causes zombiesm. In this case we have a young woman who accidentally drives into a young man's motorcycle and while it's in repair they team up and end up as suspects in a multiple murder case. The twist is of course that the zombies are doing it, they are onto the matter but nobody believes them. It's quite a wild ride and I'm sure the folks who made "Return Of The Living Dead" have at least glanced this way. It's rather stylish (once it gets going) and tons of fun, a nice little surprise zombie film.
