Alternate Versions

A 108 minute cut that played in film festivals and theaters in 2007 differs from the 91 minute cut released on DVD by WellGo USA. The original 108 minute version featured the following scenes, not seen on the DVD:
  • Angela opens her eyes and screams, after being shot "dead" by Josh in the opening scene.
  • One of the ZA group members is beheaded by the Commandant outside the truck, shortly after they raid the Zombies Anonymous meeting.
  • Graphic decapitations of most of the zombies anonymous members in the woods are shown, including shots where their moving heads are placed on stakes.
  • In an extended sequence, Angela is held captive by the Good Mother Solstice and her cult after they save her from the massacre in the woods. Although she appears willing at first, Angela realizes that they are terrorists, and have been responsible for numerous terrorist attacks. In an attempt to brainwash her into joining them, they tie her up and inject her with a concentrated form of human blood and gristle, inserted into her brain with a hypodermic needle. Solstice explains that injecting entrails into the brain can lead to an intense high for zombies, but can also cause a messy overdose, which is later seen at the film's end.
  • After the slaughter in the woods, Commandant cuts off her hair with a hunting knife and dies it blonde, in an attempt to change her appearance.
  • Josh, after realizing he has been shot in the woods, and is now one of the undead, has a nervous breakdown. The Commandant shows up in the middle of his breakdown and kicks him in the head.
  • The Commandant strips down to her underwear at Josh's house, and prepares to 'zombify' herself by via gunshot to the head. Malcolm shows up in the middle, only to be killed by Josh with a shotgun blast to the head. Commandant ultimately shoots herself, becoming a zombie. The Good Mother Solstice and her cult show up minutes later. Not recognizing her from the woods, because of her altered appearance, they take her to their house. Josh, watching close by, follows them.
  • Angela, tied down to the floor, escapes by scraping the rope against a rusty nail sticking out of a beam. Before she can escape the house, the Good Mother Solstice and her cult return with the now-dead commandant.

first half bad, second half gory
15 September 2011 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is a weird one to review. I mean, the first part is really bad, but the second part is as gory as hell. Let me explain. The first minutes you see how they attack a zombie but the zombie talks normal and has normal clothes on, so I thought OMG this is going to be worse. And it was, the first 45 minutes are really stupid, face it, zombies gathering together to talk about their life. And the make-up made for zombies to look alive. Really, I was ready to push the fast-forward button but somehow I kept watching. But once things go weirder and weirder you really should wait until the go into the woods. From that point on it's gore galore with decapitations, eating guts, tearing bodies apart, biting into human flesh, heads being shot to bits. But naturally the first part tears it down and that's sad. If they would have made it a bit shorter it would have been great. On the other hand, the girls who are in this flick are mostly buxom chicks and wearing short skirts but that doesn't make a flick. Also funny to see is that they cut out some nudity concerning a whore. One tot was shown but was cut out why I don't know. But it's available in the deleted scene's. Not that it was sexy or anything but it's strange to cut that part out of a movie. The acting was mediocre but the movie do needs the gory parts to deliver the gorehounds. If you can sit through the first half part than it's okay to watch.
