The Killing Strain 2010 - **1/2 A.K.A. "A Killing Strain". This is another one of those films that we heard all kinds of negative things about before we obtained a copy. A disparate group of strangers must band together in a deserted farm house and overcome their personal conflicts in order to survive a zombie outbreak. Sound familiar? There is absolutely nothing new here. The film is derivative and contains pretty much every cliche that zombie films are known for, but in spite of this it is surprisingly enjoyable. It is gory, and even though the zombies are fast they are well done. Sure some of the acting is so so, but it is unintentionally a far superior  re-imagining of "Night Of The Living Dead" than the horrible 3D travesty. It is a little known film but is perfect for viewing in a dark room with some popcorn. What more can a fan ask for?
