Let me get one thing straight right off the bat: expectations were high. Perhaps too high. Having thoroughly enjoyed Urban Death twice, I have become a fan of ZJU. LOVE Urban Death. This, not so much.
While fans of mindless zombie flicks will love it, I found the story completely forgettable--in fact, I forgot it a long time ago. Something about an apartment complex in which everyone turns into zombies. Oh, and dogs. Zombie dogs. Cute, perhaps the most memorable characters on the stage. The non-canine ("human" seems inadequate) characters lacked any sort of depth and the story--well, was there actually one? I don't think so. Not one that mattered anyway.
The blood and gore was, in classic ZJU style, greusome and gross. Exactly what most of the audience probably came to see. I however wanted more.
Campy zombie stories are a dime-a-dozen on Netflix. Having enjoyed the twisted, playful and artful masterpiece of Urban Death, I expected more--and was sorely disappointed with this piece. It was utterly one-dimensional and forgettable. None of the mind-bending, psychological thrill-ride that made Urban Death so magical, and no meaningful story to speak of.
Yes, I keep comparing it to Urban Death. Perhaps that is not fair to 'Attack of the Rotting Corpses'. What can I say--the bar was high, and at least to me, this fell well short of the mark.That said, I will not write off ZJU productions any time soon. I know the genius is there--I have witnessed it, and I will be back for more!
