Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 04.08.14] zombies



Prepare yourselves people. The Asylum is coming to TV on a regular basis. Oh yes, the guys that have brought us cheap rip offs of everything from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies) to Snakes on a Plane (Snakes on a Train) and the ridiculous Sharknado, have signed a deal with Syfy to produce 13 episodes of a action-horror zombie series titled Z Nation.

True, once in a while The Asylum manages to eek out something which is curiously entertaining (I didn't watch all of Sharknado but I laughed at quite a bit of what I saw) but for the most part, the quality of their work is sub-par and only mildly entertaining. I'm not sure on which end of the scale (gloriously bad or absolutely terrible) Z Nation will be but here's the story they're working from:


In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world's last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind's survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.

The concept sounds promising but I'm not holding my breath that Z Nation will be any good. But then, the guys at The Asylum have surprised me before so what the hell; maybe this will work. Question is: does anyone care?

Guess we're not done with zombies quite yet.

The Asylum. My bet is a The Last of Us ripoff.

normally I wouldn't call something a rip off. But it's The Asylum, when they see something popular they can't help themselves.

I'm willing to give the Asylum a chance. They have came out with a few decent movies. I agree with Billy I liked Zombie Apocalyse, and there was bug movie that came out about five years ago that was pretty good. I coudn't finish Sharknado, it was beyond horrable.
