When I think "Zombie High" I think of a fun flick with a group of high school students taking on their zombified classmates in an epic battle on school grounds. Instead, what we're actually given is a excruciatingly dull movie about lobotomized students becoming successful in life (WTF??). That's essentially the story for the misleading "Zombie High," as we follow a young Virginia Madsen who accepts a scholarship at a prestigious boarding school where she notices something amiss with her fellow classmates.

Things are especially dubious when one of her peers is a rebellious outspoken sonuva bitch one minute, then an emotionless creeper the next. Virginia eventually discovers that the students are undergoing brain surgery against their will and the school's elder staff are benefiting from it. Apparently they extract certain parts of the brain and mix it with blood to create a means of eternal life. Now Virginia must find a way outta the school before she too becomes yet another science experiment.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard all of the hype centering around the new Zombedy starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg.  With it’s mix of gruesome undead action and whip smart sense of humor, some are even saying it’s America’s answer to Shaun of the Dead.  At the end of the day, does Zombieland live up to all the praise?  FUCK YEAH!

A couple years after the first film's release, creators Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza return with [Rec] 2, starting off literally seconds after the events of the previous installment. In this movie we follow a group of SWAT members, who are sent into the building with a man from the Ministry of Health to assess the situation and hopefully find answers on the infection. At least that's what we're lead to believe, until the man from the Health department reveals himself to be a priest on a secret mission to retrieve an experimental vile of the infected blood. This is where the movie goes towards an incredibly different, but interesting, direction than its predecessor.

After teaming with Jaume Balagueró with the first two [Rec] films, Paco Plaza and Juame decide to part ways for the final two installments in the franchise (supposedly), the first being this flick, followed by Apocalypse from Juame at a later date. It was initially thought that this would be a prequel to the previous installments, but it's actually a parallel story to the first two (primarily the first). Although some may hate that the movie went for a more conventional approach towards its storytelling this time, I actually found it refreshing since I've grown rather tired of the POV camera technique (at least for the moment).

The story finds us at a wedding for Clara and Koldo, a young and happy couple that will soon wish they hadn't invited so many guests for the event, especially their Uncle, who just so happens to have a bite on his hand from the very same dog from the first movie... It's not long before his eyes get bloodshot and starts foaming at the mouth right before taking a bite out of one of the partygoers.

For a short while there the [Rec] series was really turning into something great. The first film wasn't breaking any new ground, but it was a pretty solid (and at times even scary) found footage pic. Then came the sequel, which in my opinion topped the original in many ways. Mostly the fact that they took the standard infection storyline and blended it with a supernatural/possession angle. I couldn't wait to see where the franchise would take us from that point. Unfortunately what started out as something seemingly fresh for the genre just ended up nothing more than just another run-of-the-mill infection flick.
