Disaster L.A.: Last Zombie Apocalypse Starts Here

DisasterLA

Main Plot Points:

  • THE CITY OF ANGELS HAS GONE TO HELL STAY INDOORS. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO VACATE THE CITY. STAY AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE.
  • When meteors strike Los Angeles, the massive destruction they cause is the least of the city’s worries as its inhabitants begin to fall deathly ill from the resulting smoke.
  • But when the dead begin to reanimate and feed off the living, five friends make a run for the coast before they can be killed by the infected – or worse, by government forces who will fight to contain the situation at any cost – in this nightmarish no-holds-barred thriller.

What We Thought:

  • At this point, zombie movies are as oversaturated as Starbucks are. I used to watch every zombie movie that came along, and now I avoid most of them.
  • But I’m still a sucker for a good one, so I decided to give¬†Disaster L.A. a chance. And ultimately, I’m glad I did.
  • The film starts off with a group of friends partying, and admittedly, there is one who’s so annoying that I thought the movie was going to be awful.
  • But things shape up quickly, and before you know it, we’re in familiar zombie territory.
  • Filled with no-name actors, the movie doesn’t do anything particularly original; in fact, it’s clearly influenced by any number of previous zombie films. But it still manages to be enjoyable.
  • Disaster L.A. won’t win any awards or change the way you think about zombie films, but it’s an easy way to kill 90 minutes.
