Films: Undead (2003)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of average humans.
Summary: We've seen zombies come into the world through a variety of means. Radiation, magic, no reason at all, among others. Today, the threat doesn't even come from Earth...then again, not the first time it's happened.
History: Somewhere in Berkeley, CA, a meteor has crashed into the countryside. It has released a horrific virus that turns the locals into brain-eating undead. And worse, there are accounts of people being abducted by an alien force while all the carnage is occurring. Can this place survive?
Notable Kills: A skull is hardly a wall between a zombie's hunger and a brain.
Final Fate: It is revealed that the alien abductors are actually curing the people, and they release a unique rain that removes the virus...only for a deserter to come back to the town and re-infect everyone. Soon, the survivors are left to wait for the aliens to come back again.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-What else do you expect from a bunch of shambling, bloody corpses? At the very least, the rest of the galaxy was in full support of our recovery this time. But still, they'd REALLY like your brains, those undead folk. And if you listen carefully, you can even hear them speak...join us...
Trivia: -This film was notoriously hard to make for the independent directors, a pair of brothers. Almost all of it was funded by them, their family, and friends, with only 1-2 takes per shot.
-Apparently, over 600 liters of fake blood was utilized for this film.
