example- the ghouls worst movie ever made- 6.

Competently shot, if uninspiring and far from inspirational.

This is, bar none, the single most utterly unwatchable horror film I've ever seen.

It is the only entry to the living dead series with a numeral in the title, which makes it pretty confusing.

It just becomes a bland mess of characters and insinuations we don't care about.

Right off the bat I have to say that "Day of the Dead 2: Contagium" has got to be one of the worst movies I've stupidly sat through in years (though my thumb strayed to the speed-scan button a few times during interminable stretches of padding).

Ignore the title completely and you may find it enjoyable.

It is incredibly boring, depressing, has horrible acting and effects,and has no relevance to Romero's Dead series.

Part Prequel,Part Sequel, Total waste of time.

This here turned out to be quite a terrible and overall disjointed effort.

Even boring films I can make my way to the end.

This is the worst movie that I have ever seen in my life, and I've seen Showgirls!

Don't waste your money.

Some if it was quite terrible but enjoyable in its bad way.

Recommended for a slow movie night

) The acting is TV level but enjoyable enough.

There was a certain amount of confusion at times with the editing jumping us around from scene to scene and the layout of the building wasn't exactly clear.

I watched this the whole way through and I really kind of regret, its more of a really bad romantic film about people that are turning into zombies than the old gory kill the zombies and drive away, there are some zombies in it but only in maybe the last 15-20 minutes of it, maybe the last bit of it is how dawn of the dead the remake starts, its got nothing at all to do with the other film and i cant even figure out why they're in that asylum in the first place, its very hard to understand and not worthy of the title, i got really bored near the end, and as it was getting better at the end that was it it was the end, watch the film if you dare!

And this is pointless.

In short, don't waste your time unless you are like me and have to watch any zombie film you can get your hands on.

The last act picks up the pace again and there are some delightful treats for zombie fans, fantastic make-up and most of all convincing, old skool slow moving zombies.

Mercifully, I fell asleep before wasting any more of my time.

I can't say a lot about this movie, other than it was the worst movie I have ever seen.

For over an hour, the rest of the movie takes its time traveling towards a plot that it never arrives at, and in an extremely uninteresting way.

It could well be an extended episode of the Outer Limits with extra blood directed by a film grad and his mates over a dull weekend.

Intense, horrifying film that is a significant addition to the zombie genre.

Pointless and forgettable .

some, but it never becomes as chilling as in Night, as over the top and messy as in Dawn or as intense and nail-biting like in Day.

But this movie is a waste of time, i can't believe someone, somewhere gave this film the green light.

complete waste of time .

Disjointed and poor zombie effort .

Surprisingly entertaining .

The script starts off OK with the taking over of a mental hospital by hordes of flesh eating zombies but this quickly ends & we go into flashback mode as a caption informs us 'Five Days Ago' & we get the very long, drawn out, dull & boring story of how the hospital became overrun with zombies in the first place.

The zombies go from infected, to peeling skin with flu like symptoms to clear skin, then greying skin, then darker veins etc.The movie also has an inferior storyline, there is no suspense, everything is predictable and there is lots of poor effects.

In fact, this may be the worst movie to rip-off old George.

If the middle was more entertaining then I could easily give a higher rating, what it does do though is make the end of the movie worth waiting for.

Pointless and irrelevant things are happening and they are never explained.

Well, thats about three hours of my life wasted.

After viewing this movie I realized it was probably the worst movie I've ever seen.

save your money, pass this one up .

The writing is ho hum, introducing a pathetic and pointless alien DNA exposition (the whole point is you don't KNOW why there are zombies, you idiots!

Waste of Time .

Don't waste your time.

The character's are awful, the dialogue is awful, the story is utterly tedious & predictable.

This movie is a waste of time, wasted time and wasted money.

It's quite confusing figuring out when exactly all these events are happening throughout the movie as the character make-up and dialog doesn't seem to always match up with the time shifts.

The characters themselves are fairly uninteresting, mostly because of the bad acting and because the script does not do a good job of presenting and developing them.

We are treated to a small amount of zombie-munching, a dude in a meat-suit and several bored looking 'infected' people stumbling around into passers-by outside of the 'hospital.

The dullness of this long scene is monuments boring.

The movie also has a host of continuity errors and unanswered questions All and all it is mildly entertaining for a horror movieif taken by itself.

This is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

The idea is interesting because not a lot of zombie movies have done it; but even this is squandered; firstly because the troupe of lead characters are boring, and secondly because once we've realised that they're going to turn...

All in all, a boredom, a piece of trash, a "8 million movie(hahah) were the guns have not flashes when they are shot.

The film contains some of the worst acting outside a 1st grade play and the story is downright confusing and stupid.

The film spends far too long building up its characters and their setting, and all this is very pointless since you know that they're going to be eating one another pretty soon.

This movie was a complete waste of time...

The lines are utterly stale, to the point where the actors themselves seem completely bored throughout the entire film- pretty obvious that they were only here for a paycheck.

NO good Tom Savini kind of make up and no close up shots of feasting at all, total waste of time.

All in all, this movie is pretty pointless.

The film does rip off the title in attempts to capitalize off of Romero's successful dead trilogy, however this terrible marketing scheme should be overlooked as the movie can be otherwise entertaining.

Seriously, so boring.

It gets a bit slow in the middle and could maby have been a bit shorter.
