"Fight to survive... Hell on Earth."

Zombie Wars is a 2007 Direct to Video action-Horror film.

Fifty years ago, the Zombie Apocalypse happened. This time, the zombies are smart. Now, humanity struggles to survive in small groups as the zombies farm them. One group consisting of soldiers is attacked, and some of their number are captured. The rest prepare a Roaring Rampage of Rescue.

This film contains examples of:

  • Bait-and-Switch Gunshot: The general points her gun at David, says that she's doing "only what [she] has to do" and shoots a zombie right behind him.
  • Big Bad: George turns out to be responsible for the zombie farm.
  • Crapsack World: After a radiation storm hits Earth, most of humanity has been consumed by the Zombie Apocalypse. The only survivors are nomadic camps of warriors and corrupt dictatorships that train zombies to manage slave camps of the former.
