Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection (2012)

After an opening with people who are not as worried as they should be about the threat of zombies, the movie eventually settles on the plight of a family holed up in their isolated farm house who are fighting off any zombies who try to get in.

The majority of the film involves the family bickering and the father insisting that those in the home who've turned into the zombies be left unharmed... because they're family.  Also even though they know that anyone bitten by a zombie eventually becomes a zombie, they take no precautions when others are bitten. Hey, they're family. Just put them on the bed or shut them in a room.

To say the family isn't very good at critical thinking and decision making would be an understatement.  If it's the zombie apocalypse, the middle of the night and your car is on a narrow road blocked by a line of teenagers with machetes and their instructions are to keep the car safe but go ballistic on the occupant, the last thing you should do is slowly back up the car. It's self preservation time and these boys are out to kill you.

I ended up fast forwarding through a bunch of the movie because it was just a bunch of meaningless  talking by people I didn't care about who made stupid decisions.  Low budget and not very interesting, it offers nothing new and ends on a bad note with the rape van.  I thought I'd misheard and had to listen to the statement again. But no, it actually was rape van. Thanks crappy movie, for making yourself even more unlikable.
