Breakdown Lane

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A woman with car issues becomes stranded in a vacant area where the living dead outnumber the living. While this does attempt a variety of action and horror scenes, they’re so badly constructed it’s often hard to tell what the overall point is. Whitney Moore is easy on the eyes, but the rest of this is rather repugnant.

Peelers

★★½☆ – (2016) – Strip club patrons infected by a black ooze make serious trouble for strippers and their companions. Though nothing entirely unique occurs, this does provide ample nudity, ample violence, and ample fun. Colorful characters and some genuine humor render this an imperfectly good time.

The Autopsy of Jane Doe

★★½☆ – (2016) – While trying to determine the cause of death of an unknown woman, a pathologist and his son unleash evil forces. For every instance that makes you say, “Well, duh,” there’s another that makes you say, “Oh, s**t!” Has some truly unique and tense inclusions, but isn’t exactly flawless in its logic.

Train to Busan

★★☆☆ – (2016) – A father accompanies his daughter to see her mother while a viral outbreak turns humans into bloodthirsty killers. Yet another not-quite-a-zombie yarn that might as well be called 28 Days Later on a Train. Does have some credible character moments and scenarios, but the been-there-done-that vibe turns attempted emotions into schmaltz.

Milo

★½☆☆ – (1998) – A school teacher believes she’s seeing a child who died during her youth, while everyone around her thinks she’s nuts. Does make you wonder what’s going on, but the payoff is far more silly than intriguing. Takes too many routine turns before hitting a corny dead end.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A woman who’s been battling a corporate viral outbreak for many years returns to the epicenter of her problems to end all the madness. Follows the same formula as the previous entries by placing computerized technology over any human traits. A jumbled mess that has no flow, no involvement, and no reassurance that this is actually the end.

Dorm of the Dead (2012)

dorm-of-the-dead-2012

★☆☆☆ – (2012) – A bunch of college geeks deal with zombies by referring to popular movies. There’s hardly any story pertaining to the dead versus the living, aside from a few wide shots of zombie groups. A dirt cheap version of something that could have been made for even cheaper and still accomplish the same nothingness.
