Overview: Six years after the American Civil War, Edward Young returns home from a hunting trip to find a horrific reanimation of his wife and that their son Adam has disappeared. He must battle his way through an unexplainable outbreak of the walking dead.
DVD Verdict: Beginning in Tennessee in 1865, during a battle of the American Civil War, a zombie staggers out of nowhere into the middle of the whole thing! Just one, but enough to enable our story to begin. Six years after the War, our hero Edward Young (Mark Gibson, whose story is told through his found Book of The Dead; and narrated by the always-brilliant Brian Cox as Malcolm Young) comes home to find his wife (Sarah Stunt) a zombie. So, he kills her. But he cannot find his son, Adam (Christian Martyn).
So, after trying to find out what makes a zombie tick, he sets out to find his son. Along the way he encounters many more zombies. Some real and some shown in old school comic book style. Sadly, he quickly discovers that Adam has been bitten and so has to put him out of his misery too. And then soon thereafter his horse is next!
And so Edward then steels himself in keeping a promise to his son when he was alive - in taking him (his son's ashes now) to the waterfalls. Along the way he runs into Isaac, another lost soul, unbitten and headed his way too. Then come a small bunch of Rebels (who are trying to find their own cure), and a "witch" named Eve - who turns out to be nothing of the sort!
Come the finale, Rebels kill innocents, innocents kill Rebels, zombies keep eating whoever gets in their way, and closure is brought to the whole mess. A mess, as it turns out, that is also revealed as to why it came about in the first place! In truth, the animation and narration make this film waaaaay better than it ever should be!
