G.O.R.E. Score: The Plague

The Plague (2006)

The Plague (2006)

Original Release Date: September 5, 2006
Run Time: 88 minutes

This past weekend I was on a trip back to my hometown, Ft. Wayne, IN, a town situated about two hours northeast of Indianapolis. On a late Friday night after my wife, daughter, and our gracious mother-in-law host already went to bed, I hunkered down on the couch to check out the offerings on the relatively-new FiOS cable system running through Ft. Wayne. I stumbled across a movie, “The Plague,” as a free on-demand film from FEARNet. I didn’t know anything about the movie, and there was (frustratingly) no description available…and my laptop was soooo far away on the other side of the room (what am I, made of energy?), so I knew nothing about the movie other than the title. At midnight, alone in a dark, (relatively) strange house, I really had no choice BUT to watch a scary movie, so I hit “Play” and I was on my way.

Imagine my surprise when “The Plague” turned out to be a zombie film – well, a film that falls under the loose umbrella definition of “zombie” that I subscribe to, anyways. (Don’t know my “official” definition of a zombie, dear reader? It’s included as an essay at the beginning of my first collection of reviews, “The G.O.R.E. Score, Vol. 1,” now available at Amazon and orderable through your local retailers! Okay, my self-promoting quota for the week has now been fulfilled.)

  1. As always, an excellent review. Too bad this movie sounds absolutely atrocious.

  2. I saw this at a local blockbuster and almost rented it, but now i might wait for a late night tv debut i think, thanks for the heads up!
