      Audience Member You know this movie was anti Muslim and I'm a Muslim. I'm a fan of Bill Moseley but why did they have to have him talk bad about my religion. I never speak bad about anybody's beliefs. Other than that the movie wasn't that bad Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome B movie! Totally hysterical! I was laughing the entire time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member I watched this for Bill Moseley and that's the only good thing in it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Low-budget but well executed 28 Days Later-school zombie flick. This time, a rage-like virus used as a bioweapon in a terrorist attack and a shock-jock who carries on a personal battle AGAINST conspiracy nuts struggles both to keep his listeners informed and make sure his family is safe. Bill Moseley is excellent in the lead and the supporting cast is solid as well. There are strong, perhaps sometimes heavy handed, social and political commentaries as well, particularly when Moseley finds himself face-to-face with one of the terrorists. A few nice twists, fair gore that doesn't go over the top, and some decent suspense. One of the better films in its vein; there's more here than just another zombie horror knockoff. Well worth a viewing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member When you set a movie in a location it says a lot when your plot seems to avoid the characters using that location. As a radio station the cast spend more time away from broadcasting and advocating the TV as a better source of info to their audience than doing their job. It's a shambles of poor plotting that detracts from any impact or believability in the characters who do the most inane things to move the plot forward. Don't waste your time and view Pontypool for the same idea done with a hundredfold integrity or Talk Radio for how a radio station actually works.
