It had such promise.
Or, should have.
It was also [almost] direct-to-video.
No, it was worse than End Of Days.
The zombies in this movie are slow (a plus), but they also take weeks to turn into one after being bit (which, conveniently, gives the non-turned ample time to plan to eliminate them, and time for the turning to get their affairs in order before being dispatched). In the whole movie, I think, there’s only two encounters with “real” zombies – which could have lots of promise. Focusing on the humanity of the situation could have been good.
But it wasn’t. The pacing was atrocious. Good Night, and Good Luck was this slow, but for a reason. This movie was slow, I think, so that they could call it a “movie”. It’s listed at 95 minutes from IMDb. Pretty sure it’s really only about 52 minutes long.
And even that was about 41 minutes longer than it should have been.
I’ve only not seen a couple Arnie films – make sure you add this to your list of ones of his to skip.
