After massive biological warfare in 2012, one third of mankind is killed and nearly everyone rendered sterile, so the human race has to reproduce itself via cloning. Nineteen years later, problems start showing up in the first strand of clones: they go nuts and start biting people like George Romero zombies. And that's basically it, which would be okay except the movie doesn't do much with the concept. They don't show many attacks (basically just some campers and a compound of religious nuts) and they didn't seem to be very interested in the possibility for gore, either - there's just a little blood unenthusiastically dripped around and that's about it. And it's not scary in the least. So, what you end up with is a lot of attempts to be clever with style that come across as wankage (the film turns into a silent movie at the end, after trying hard to look like the Blair Witch Project) and substance is kept to a minimum. It's not badly made overall and gets points for trying to be different on a budget of zero, but fizzles because it would have been so easy to make it so much better.
A Classic that belongs with the Best of the Zombie Films

I received a new DVD update from Oldies.com when this movie as being released. Well, I saw it at my local Media Play and jumped on it. I had a certain vision of the movie, and was taken into an entirely different direction with the same end result. I absolutely loved every minute of this film. A post-apocalyptic zombie flick with a lot of substance and intrigue. This is one of best kept secrets in the indie movie scene right now. Director Georg Koszulinski makes excellent use of the scenery, acting and minimal effects to create a very sterile and morbid stage to set up the rest of the movie. Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas made their mark with indie films and Georg Koszulinski is well on the road to directing stardom.
Haven't seen it!
