Kristina Klebe and Ken Foree in Apocalypse of the Dead (2009) (aka: Zone of the Dead)

A Dead Loss Zone

On a cold night in Serbia agent Mina Milius (Kristina Klebe) and agent Mortimer Reyes (Ken Foree) escort a criminal (Emilio Roso) with their destination being England via Belgrave. But their journey takes them through Pancevo where an incident has occurred with a container of highly toxic gas. Now Reyes and Milius must do the unthinkable and put their faith in the dangerous criminal to deal with a swarm of zombies which they come across.

I have come across some bad dubbing in my time but nothing like the dubbing in "Apocalypse of the Dead" which sinks to a whole new level of suckitude. Right from the word go the majority of the voices don't match up to the actors and it is incredibly bad, there are no words to describe how bad it is and unfortunately it isn't even entertainingly bad, just really terrible. The thing is when you have bad dubbing paired up with bad acting and it starts to head to the realms of hopeless. As such whilst you have Ken Foree putting in a solid performance the level of the acting is weak.

As for the actual plot well it starts in Yugoslavia in 1985 when a bunch of ancient but not decomposed skeletons and bodies are uncovered before jumping to the now where we have a less than convincing incident at a train station leading to a big canister of toxic gas being ruptured by a stray bullet. What goes on from there is simply agents and prisoner fighting for survival. It tries to elaborate on things but it is a pointless endeavour as right from the word go "Apocalypse of the Dead" is uninspiring and full of bad things rather than good things.

What this all boils down to is that "Apocalypse of the Dead" is one bad movie with next to nothing being any good about it. Maybe if you are total zombie flick junkie it might entertain but everything from the dubbing to the poor acting makes it hard going from the get go.
