Since he has gone AWOL from the military, being not quite as courageous
as he thought he'd be, Joe (Vladimir Zaric) has taken his brother Stu
(Hans Potter), his girlfriend Sonya (Marisa Crockett), and his best
friends Mikey (Chris Walters) and Kiley (Amy Muc) on a fourteen day
camping trip out in the woods somewhere in the middle of nowhere, Canada,
where there's no cellphone reception, no "designated camping
areas", no nothing, just to properly hide out until the worst blows
over. But when they stop for gas on their way back, they can't fail to
notice that the gas station's abandoned but there are traces of blood
everywhere, the 911 operator (Kianna Passmore) they call seems to be in
some sort of panic, and there seems to be a feeling of unease ... and then
Stu's bitten by a woman, and within minutes he dies - and comes back from
the dead, hungry for human flesh. And when some more people not looking
terribly alive come by as well, our heroes begin to realize they've got
the zombie apocalypse on their hands that has apparently started when they
were hiding out. Of course they're ill-equipped to fight it, and things
don't get much better when a couple they rescue (Darren Andrichuk, Delia
Tatiana) turn out to be a serial killer and his punching bag/bait.
Ultimately, it's up to Joe to muster up all the courage he would have
needed in the army to get them out of the situation - but courage alone
isn't necessarily all that's needed ...
Now 3 Hours till
Dead doesn't really break any new ground when it comes to zombie
cinema (but that said, only very few zombie movies do), but it tells its
story in an engaged way with plenty of action and tension to keep one on
the edge of one's seat throughout, it remains pretty unpredictable as to
who dies and when, and it does feature a bunch of interesting characters
who are definitely more than just cannonfodder.
So while not actually
breaking new ground, this is certainly an enjoyable genre movie worth
watching not only for die-hard zombie fans!
