I will give this a go, you did a great job on your report/suggestion. I own the dvd for Tucker & Dale and there's all kinds of bonus goodies in it as well as commentary. There's a feature whick is the whole movie condensed to about 45 minutes with all of T&D's conversations removed, showing the point of view from the college kids. Funny stuff and worth the watch.

I watched your little movie last night. Not bad. Had a real "28 days Later" feel to it. The zombies were just a weeee bit different than the ones in C.H.U.D.

I saw this one not to long ago on netflix. I thought it was decent considering the budget was not all that big. I agree about 6./10 stars.

I couldn't remember who One was on Resident Evil (as played by Colin Salmon), so I searched it. He was the team leader on the first Resident Evil when the Umbrella Corp. Special Ops team took a tour of "the hive". Remember his spectacular death? When the lasers in the sealed tunnel went into a grid formation and took him out after he evaded their other patterns? He is a pretty good actor.

Apparently they are bringing him, Rain, and Carlos's characters back in Retribution. They have been cloned by Umbrella.

Thanks!

Like the idea of incorporating a "scale" of zombie-worthiness!!!

I really wanted to do Dale and Tucker vs Evil for my movie, but DSD said that we get extra points for incorporating zombies so I chose Devil's Playground. But I still recommend that you watch Dale and Tucker vs Evil! Both movies can be found on Netflix.

Speaking of Netflix - you can type in "Zombies" in the search bar, and there is a plethora of movies to chose from!!!

OK. Devil's Playground was released in 2010. The director was Mark McQueen, and it stars, Jamie Murray (Lila on the 2nd season of Dexter), Craig Fairbrass (Delmar - Cliffhanger), Myanna Buring, Colin Salmon (Resident Evil as One). It is set in London. As the movie begins you see Colin Salmon, and a corporation testing some new and supposedly fabulous drug on 30,000 volunteers. I immediately began thinking Umbrella Corporation... Resident Evil. I thought about turning it off, but forced myself to continue watching. I am glad I did. This was a little different zombie movie than many I have watched.

The drug testing failed. 29,999 of the volunteers Newgen injected with it became violently ill, and began to turn. The doctors (really cared - unlike the cold hearted Umbrella Corp.) and created an anti-viral injection... which only slows the process. Cole (Craig Fairbrass) is the thug for Newgen Corp. However he is a thug with a conscience, and tells his boss Mr. White (Colin Salmon) that he plans on quitting. Cole is then sent to find Angela Mills, the lone volunteer for the drug testing that has not showed up at Newgen's doorstep vomiting blood.

There are parts of the story line that could have been developed a little better, like Angela's boyfriend, Joe the cop who is just getting out of jail for having shot a kid. But with a little imagination, you can easily make it through the rough spots. This zombie movie gives you a spot of hope, because Angela COULD be the cure to this horrific plague that completely shuts the UK down.

This movie also supported my survival plan as the zombies would have nothing to do with jumping into a body of water to catch their prey. Now I have to learn how to drive a boat....

The zombies themselves aren't the mindless dead who shamble around banking on the fact that there are more of them than you and sooner or later you will be trapped. No these creatures scale walls, jump through car windows, and even perform fantastic skate park worthy moves (without a skateboard). They look mildly undead, but are marked by the enormous raised veins all over their body (the infection).

It was 97 minutes long, and worth the watch. The acting is very rough in some parts. One in particular that troubled me was where Angela was locked in a room by some folks, and they hoped to leave her for dead - but Joe can't live w/o her and found/saved her. When faced with the decision to leave them behind, she says, "NO. I will not be like them." But a few moments later in the car, she insists that they stop the car so she and Joe can get out, and to hell with everyone else... I just like to see a stronger main character than that wishy washy stuff. The zombies were cool, and some of the special effects were very well done. I would give it a 6 on a scale of 1-10 in my zombie movie list!
