Funimation’s City Under Siege is an entertaining enough action film, of which arrives on Blu-ray with fine video and audio.
Yoshihiro Nishimura’s latest absurdist horror film, Helldriver, is just a plain bad zombie flick. Its nonsensical plot, lack of humor and scares make it not worth bothering with, and the lackluster MPEG-2 high definition transfer is like something out of 2006.
The Dead is an average zombie flick that follows all the basic rules of the genre, but shifts the action to the beauty of the African landscape. Sadly it arrives in an underwhelming transfer from Anchor Bay that doesn’t do the imagery any justice.
A classic George A. Romero-style anime zombie-action series that features martial arts trained cute schoolgirls who kick zombie butt, nonstop action, and cool animation — what are you waiting for?
Anchor Bay’s The Waking Dead helps to bring the zombie genre back to life.
This George A. Romero knockoff will probably find a place among zombie movie fans and the VC-1 transfer and lossless audio are good enough to impress, but the weak extras certainly don’t.
