Tagline: Their Time Has Come!

Plot: During a zombie apocalypse ,a group of survivors hide on Alcatraz Island to escape from rising zombie hordes. When their refuge is overrun, and upon hearing that a scientist may have discovered a cure, they leave the island to seek him out.

My rating: 5.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

For as low budget and poorly acted, I wasn't bored for a minute.  Yes, the dialogue is often hideous to the point that actors that have done much better before had trouble trying not to bring themselves down, but there's a ton of zombie action.  The effects are sometimes pretty bad but there's a shitload of zombie killing.  If that's not enough, Danny Trejo's in it.  This isn't going to take home any awards but it's an easy watch with friends.  Not tits, though.  Sad times.
