As a hardcore zombie buff, it felt like I had no choice but to check the Serbian horror movie Zone of the Dead [a.k.a Apocalypse of the Dead]. Despite the bad reviews, I still gave it the benefit of the doubt and well… got really disappointed. *sigh*
The whole film was in English, however, due to the Serbian actors' Serbian accents it was like listening to forced and silly sounding dialogues. Maybe the movie could have been better if it was in Serbian. I honestly wouldn’t mind reading the English subs.

The acting? Stiff and really terrible. Everyone was really trying so hard to act and yet they failed in every aspect. It was painful to watch most of the time. Ouch!
The plot wasn’t that original at all. It lacked the “wow” factor to keep you interested at all. My boyfriend fell asleep during the first 15 or 20 minutes of the film while I almost threw in the towel during its first half. Well, obviously, I kept going as I was holding on to a very thin rope of hope that something fascinating would take place --- wrong!
All that being said, Zone of the Dead isn’t the worst zombie flick I’ve seen so far. Zombie Strippers  still remains on top of my crappiest zombie movie list. Yayks!
