By the director of WolfCop.

I watched this low-budget SOV zombie flick based solely on the strength of Katherine Isabelle, one of my favourite contemporary scream queens, and was surprised by how much I enjoyed the film as a whole. Although the plot certainly isn't anything special—a group of forensic students on a field exam find themselves not just examining the dead, but fighting for their lives against them—the lively execution and impressive old-school gore effects, coupled with Isabelle's appeal, ensured that I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish.

Considering his obvious budgetary constraints, director Lowell Dean (who would go on to make the equally fun WolfCop) has delivered a stylish looking film that makes the most of its grim, isolated locale, whilst serving up a fair amount of gore-tastic zombie mayhem, with a couple of blood drenched scenes to rival those of much bigger productions: Isabelle's fight against a pair of her undead friends in a cabin is a marvel of practical splatter effects, the poor girl impaling one zombie through the face with a chair leg, and hacking at another's throat until his head falls backwards.

After much chopping and slashing, and quite a bit of gut munching (entrails are graphically yanked from the victims' bodies—something sorely missing from many a modern zombie film), Dean wraps up his film with an well-mounted sequence in which his remaining characters attempt to escape in a bus, allowing for some impressive vehicular stunts, and a fun cliffhanger ending.

Zooooombie Zooombie zooombie eh eh eh ehhhhhh

Gloomy zombie flick that fails to excite or entertain on any level.

Even the kills are poorly orchestrated, and it doesn't help that a lot of them are shown in slow motion, which in the case of for instance the series THE WALKING DEAD that could add a bit more dramatic flare to the scene but here it does the exact opposite, it just highlights the fact that it's poorly done instead.

I like Brendan Fletcher and Katherine Isabelle but they can't save this dreck, not that they try all that much (Brendan in particular appears to be very little interested in being in the movie).

There's really not a whole lot to say about the movie they spend most time in the woods dodging zombies.

If that sounds like your cup of tea then by all means take a sip, but just know that it's the cheap stuff with a lot of grainy tea-particles floating about.

Very enjoyable ...

People are stupid. Some people are very stupid. Usually, characters in horror films are at least slightly stupid, otherwise they wouldn't constantly get entangled in the mess that fuels the drama. But when the leads are six forensic undergrads who embark on a scientific expedition, you expect a certain degree of sense. Their project takes them to a remote island that was once used as illegal biological testing grounds for life-term prisoners. When we get our first glimpses of what remains of these prisoners, the effects are stomach churning.

Also, the Canadian woods used as location used are pleasingly bleak and bathed in winter crispness. To their credit, the undergrads do many things right here; it's just that the walking dead keep on coming. There are many, many zombies in popular entertainment currently, and as is often the case, their ubiquity has reduced their effectiveness. Rather like the found footage genre, there are still effective stories to be told, but you have to search for them.

I enjoyed '13 Eerie' a lot. Although it is all played straight, I suspect the effects planners had a great deal of fun conjuring up the imaginative ways in which people/zombies are impaled, stabbed, mangled and injured. The results are joyfully convincing. The ending is especially amusing – when the credits come crashing in, it's hard not to laugh out loud. Intentional horror is rare in these kind of films, and it works very well here.

The zombie creatures are very detailed and suitably gruesome, but their torso/body-suits occasionally let them down, betraying a certain bulkiness or fold in the fabric. But they are a force to be reckoned with – they run, snarl and hiss, indicating their infection has given them a certain primal ferocity.

On a personal note, I have watched a lot of horror films recently that have struck me as banal and formulaic and it made me wonder if I was becoming over-familiar, or tired of the genre. Luckily for me, an enjoyable experience like '13 Eerie' has restored my faith and enthusiasm.
