Stop and Die. Stop and Die. Stop again. Die yet again. Yes, it was the "Stop and Die" movie. A zombie virus gets released into the atmosphere and people turn into the living dead. Our heroes keep moving from building to house to warehouse with a couple of them turning into zombie chow on every stop. Remember, you stop, you die.

Well, certainly this movie wasn't good. There's no doubt about that. However it did have some points which dragged it up from completely worthless junk status. There's a hilarious scene where a severed head flies out of a refrigerator and dives for the jugular of some unsuspecting dolt. He had the audacity to stop. Therefore he must die. There were some other decent gore effects too. Black Blood Bonanza.

But the movie caves in on itself with its repeated action scenes. Stop. Die. Stop. Die. Die Stop. Just stop already.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 dead heads
