Synopsis: Hoping to get back together with his ex-girlfriend. A man finds himself trapped in her apartment. When a deadly virus turns those around him into zombies.

Content wise Siege of the Dead takes on familiar themes like viruses that mutate and the living dead feeding on the flesh of the living. And while there is an air of familiarity to the events which unfold. The end result is a fun ride that covers a lot ground in just a mere 62 minutes. The film is briskly paced as the zombie attacks are frequent enough that any moments of calm are brief.

Even though the living dead are the main draw to this attraction. The real heart of this film are the survivors who try to stay one step ahead of the living dead. With the evolving relationship between Michael the man who is trying to get back together with his ex-girlfriend and a young man named Harper.With each new attack their bond grows stronger as they come up with ways to get away their living dead attackers. Another area where this film excels is how it strips everything down to its bare minimum. Time is not wasted over analyzing the cause behind the zombie outbreak. Instead the film keeps its focus on the spectacle of what is happening. Ultimately Siege of the Dead is a fast paced horror film that achieves all of its goals and then some.
