Verdict on Strain 100
Strain 100 is a zombie survival movie following a woman that looks to find safety during an outbreak. This sees Jesse escape the danger and meet other survivors along the way, each one offering up a different story.
When it comes to the zombie survival movie, we have seen it all before. It is hard to escape what we have seen and find something new to bring to the table. This movie is no different, it is going from location to location to deal with a new threat. Even the low budget side of the movie holds it back, which has been a trick other movies have used to their advantage. Sadly, this ends up being a weak addition to the zombie outbreak sub-genre.
Final Thoughts – Strain 100 is a by-the-book zombie survival movie.
