Synopsis: The survivors in a post apocalyptic America left barren after World War III are at war with the living dead and themselves.
Content wise, this film travels ground that has been covered countless times before and in the majority of the instances it was done a lot better, then it is in this film. First off, this film sets itself up as a zombie film and yet the zombie in the film are not much more than background fodder. In essence this film is more a character driven melodrama that at times is too talky and if you are looking for any real surprise, you should look elsewhere. Other areas where this film comes up short are its special effects and even the more horror themed moments involving gore come off as too tame and crudely executed.
And while the film’s main focus is on its characters. The only one character leaves any lasting impression, is a character named George Miles, who is deliriously portrayed by Andre Boudreau (Nun of That). This character’s gripe on sanity was lost long ago when his family were killed by zombies. Throughout the film he pretends that he is the President of the United States and that the zombies that are being held captive in a barn by where he lives are his Presidential cabinet. Also this character is involved in this film only truly disturbing moment, it is a scene in which he forcibly has sex with a zombie that is restrained to his desk. Overall Zombie Allegiance is a drawn out and forgettable Zombie film.
Zombie Allegiance is presented in an anamorphic widescreen that retains the film’s original aspect. Colors and flesh tones look accurate and details look crisp. There are no problems with compression and the image remains stable throughout.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital stereo mix in English. Dialog is clear enough to follow and background noise is minimal.
Extras for this release include fro Defiled, Exploited, Faces of Schlock, Diary of a Sex Offender, Sex Merchants and Uncle Farts Collection. Overall Zombie Allegiance gets a good audio / video presentation.
