The Overview: Beware of spoilers…
After a zombie outbreak, a small group of survivors have taken refuge in a barn. Arguments about what do next tear the group apart and lead to murder. Everyone but Evie (Crowley) is ready to move on. Evie wants to wait for her boyfriend, John (Marcus) to return. He finally does, but only Evie waited.
Neither Evie are John are well-suited for survival in this new world. When Charlie (Jianai) arrives at the barn, they gain renewed hope. Charlie is an outdoorsman, a marksman and just wants their companionship. Charlies says in return he will feed and protect them. What could go wrong with that?
John and Evie should know that sometimes the humans are the most dangerous part of a zombie apocalypse.
The Plague has an interesting idea, but falls short in the execution. It’s not a bad film, especially for a low budget production.
The Plague earns 2 of 5 stars.
