Dark Comedy and Horror unite in this satirical thriller based on the "Live Action Role-Playing" game of the same name. Students on summer break are exposed to a deadly virus that is spread rapidly through direct human contact. The infected become enslaved by the invading "swarm" intelligence and driven by an insatiable appetite to consume human flesh. Returning home, the students spread the infection to their fellow classmates and other unsuspecting townspeople. One by one, more students fall victim to the plague,triggering an epidemic that spawns a horde of ravenous zombies. The zombie horde grows and spreads quickly. Amidst the chaos, a campus security guard,obsessed with conspiracy theories, leads a group of students to safety as they and a small band of uninfected townspeople set out to find other human survivors in an attempt to discover the source of the "zombie" virus and save the world.

Fun zombie film
I caught the world premiere of this film at Splatterfest last night in
Houston, and was really surprised by how good it looked. The direction,
editing, lighting, and quality overall is really amazing considering
this is another low budget horror title. The acting is mostly good,
save for some predictably cheesy moments. I have to say Chip Joslin
gave Nick Frost a run for his money as the funniest fat guy in a zombie
film. There are a few moments when the sound was an issue. Without
giving too much away, one actress is speaking to the group in a tunnel
and the audience simply couldn't hear a word. However I'm sure these
problems will be fixed by the time it goes to DVD and, from what I
heard last night, TV on the Chiller channel. Anyway, if you enjoy
zombie films (or expertly crafted low-budget films) then this is one
you're not gonna want to miss. -Brock
