Day of the Dead 2: Contagium is...


... a steaming pile of shit. 

This name-only sequel is wretched and should not be viewed by anyone. In fact, they should probably replace the DVD cover with those pictures from cigarette packages, just so everyone is clear that the 'film' (and I use this word lightly) may in fact be hazardous to your health. Don't put yourself through it. Even you masochists out there might find yourself getting in over your head and crying for mummy.

Wikipedia's 'reception' section has this fantastic summary of what reviewers found wrong with it: 'Heavy criticism has also been aimed at the film's acting, special effects, and script'. Dear Ana Clavell, James Glenn Dudelson and Taurus Entertainment, damn you for making this complete mockery of entertainment and taking away time that could have been used for better things, like watching grass grow or paint dry.

Go watch George A. Romero's original Day of the Dead instead. I think we can all agree now it is one of the greatest zombie films ever.
