Verdict: This Was Bad
Story: Survival of the Dead starts as we meet Sarge (Van Sprang) who decides to take his men away from the army to fend for themselves. We also meet a small family on Plum Island where O’Flynn (Welsh) and his family clean up their small island for survivors, but this only leads to conflict between him and another family the Muldoon (Fitzpatrick).
When the soldiers find themselves in the middle of the battle between the two families they learn that the zombies are not the only enemies they have to face in this world.
Survival of the Dead is the 6th instalment of the franchise and this film takes place in the same universe as the Diary of the Dead film where we follow the military men who rob our heroes in that one. The problem here is we get an awful story about two rival families wanting the island to save themselves. There is not a single redeemable character in this film and it could easily be considered the worst of the whole franchise. Just don’t get me started about the awful accents being used throughout either.
Overall: Worst of the bunch by a very long way.
