From the start it's clear that this isn't your average zombie movie. First and foremost they call them "hungries", but that isn't the only thing that sets it apart. We begin in some sort of military base with kids strapped to wheelchairs being rolled along to a class of some sort (but once we find out they're zombies you have to wonder while they bother with school). The main character, Melanie, is immediately recognizable as such due to her annoying sweetness. It looks like a creepy dystopia kind of thing until a soldier attracts the attention of one of the kids who tries to break out of his restraints to take a bite out of the soldier. The young-uns are all infected with something that leaves them mostly lucid, until some fresh meat gets too close that is. But while the kids seem to be able to control themselves the same can't be said for the full grown zombies who inevitably invade the military compound. They're basically the same fast zombies that we've been seeing since Zak Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake. It seems to be for no other reason than to add action to a relatively slow movie.
Beth got her start writing for a site called Movie Criticism for the Retarded (which has been reborn as dorkdroppings.com. Check it out sometime), but was pulled out of an early retirement to write for Needless Things. When she isn't writing she plays video games and watches bad horror movies while eagerly awaiting the zombie apocalypse. She may try to save her husband and/or their cats, but luckily hasn't had to make those tough decisions yet.
