Zombie movies need a headshot. It feels like there is a new one released every other day. There is a downside to the popularity of The Walking Dead. The zombie movie probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
On Saturday night (October 27th) the Syfy Channel offers Rise of the Zombies, an Asylum production that actually isn’t bad but at the same time brings nothing new to the table. It opens in the middle of people being attacked by zombies in San Francisco. It appears the city has been overrun. The small group of survivors is attempting to make it to Alcatraz, but only a pregnant woman manages to escape the marauding undead.
Meanwhile, another small group of survivors is holed up in the famous prison. Unfortunately for them these zombies can swim, and before long they are on shore and attacking the prison. The group fights them off as best they can and find a place to plot their next move. Apparently, some doctor has developed a cure at a nearby university. The group decides to hop in a raft and head to the university. It might be their last hope.
