A group of soldiers is sent to the hospital to eliminate the infected staff and interns but private DeLuca steals a test tube with the virus and hides it inside a vacuum flask.

Horrible, but better than the remake of the original
This is another zombie film that I avoided for a long time, but just recently gave in to watching.
I already knew that this was just a cash-in (and unofficial sequel) of the original masterpiece, but felt I HAD to watch it sooner or later.
I tried to go in with an open mind, but it was pretty fruitless to say the least. There is one good thing, however, to say about this movie. It is better than the 2008 remake of Day of the Dead. That's about it.
Where to begin? The plot tried so hard to be different but failed miserably. The score was so forgettable I don't even remember it. At all. The actors may have tried their best with what they had to work with, but that wasn't enough. Gore and zombie make-up/action was also pathetic.
This is currently my second-least favorite zombie movie, with the first being the horrifyingly bad 2008 remake.
In short, don't waste your time unless you are like me and have to watch any zombie film you can get your hands on.
Watch the 1985 original, along with George A. Romero's other zombie films.
