Veteran Jay (Scott Baxter) returns from the battlefield to his rundown home to celebrate his homecoming with his sister (Jamie Bernadette) and best friends (James Hutchinson, Christopher Thorpe, Charmane Star, Bryan Howard) - but the party soon takes a turn to the worse when Jay's ex Jenny (Janet Roth) turns up, and tries to get back together with him. It almost works, too, but then she turns into a demon (or maybe zombie) and starts killing Jay's friends - who then also return as demons and can only stopped by a shot in the head. Somehow, Jay can get his sister to safety, then he makes a run for it ... and runs into his Sarge (Chad Bishop) from the army at the next (demon-infested) gas station, who helps him out of a tight spot and then explains what has been happening: It seems they have been tested on with some vaccine while in service that makes them immune to some weaponized virus - unfortunately, it also makes them carriers, which of course handily explains the demon-outbreak of late. Now Sarge knows who can save them (and humankind as such), a certain Dr Clark, but has no idea how to reach him and is convinced the gouvernment is after them to avoid a mass panic. Lacking a better explanation, Jay follows his old warbuddy - and only by the by, he figures that Sarge might have gone off the rocker a bit, as he starts killing people left and right, and his explanations become more and more vague and unconvincing. So in a nutshell, Jay begins to doubt whether he's on the right track - but that said, nothing could have compared him to what's actually and really going on ...

 

So ok, for the most part, Face of Evil plays like your typical zombie-outbreak movie with a little bit of conspiracy theory and lots of action thrown in, and while it's not the reinvention of the wheel, it does very fine at doing so, placing all the suspense, shocks, and even a little bit of humour, just right, plus the cast is uniformly up to carrying the movie - but what really makes this movie and sets it apart from the competition is its finale that for sure nobody saw coming and that leaves one dumbfounded and makes perfect sense even if it (intentionally) leaves many questions unanswered.

Quite a watch, really!
