platoon of the dead

Let there be no doubt: zombies are the subject du jour when it comes to low budget horror. Just as in the uprisings they portray, you can spit in any direction and guarantee you will hit a low budget zombie movie. These movies will range anywhere from your standard Romero knockoff -- three survivors trying to make it through the night -- to those with grand visions in mind and goals of knocking the proverbial head off of the living dead with their new and cutting edge ideas. Such is "Platoon of the Dead" which likely began with grand ideas, but falls far short of its goals.
