All Adam (Roger Conners) and Johnny (RJ Messenger) wanted  was to pay a visit to their parents' gravesite - and suddenly they find themselves surrounded by a group of undead, eager to eat them alive. And while Johnny is soon overcome by them, Adam manages to save himself by hightailing it. He runs into a stranger, Ben (Aswan Harris), who at first thinks Adam wants to steal his truck, but soon has his back when a bunch of zombies attack, helping him to escape first to a garage, then to a nearby house where other people, too, have found refuge: Self-righteous Reverend Cooper (Alvin Hudson), his wife Helen (Rachel Anderson) and their daughter Karen (Hailey Moltz), who has been bitten by a zombie, ex-marine Tom (Bradley Michael Arner) and his girlfriend Judy (Taylor Nelms), and mild-mannered elderly hillbilly George (Jim Strang). Now of all those in the house, Reverend Cooper is the least happy about the new arrivals, as he thinks they'll only attract attention to the house, and he also doesn't like Ben's pro-active attitude, rather wants to barricade himself in in the basement and wait it out praying while Ben comes up with an escape plan. That all the others are for the escape plan doesn't sit well with Cooper either, and on top of this he blames the whole zombie outbreak on gays (as he thinks Adam to be one) and blacks like Ben. Still, Ben and the others put Ben's plan into action that involves getting some gas from the garage to fill up a truck make an escape to the nearest medical center. As good as the plan might be, it ultimately goes up in flames, killing Tom, Judy and George. And when Ben returns to the house, Cooper thinks he has won the upper hand - which pretty much can only end badly ...

 

Now pretty much all modern zombie movie owe to/have borrowed from the original Night of the Living Dead, but Rebirth is basically a remake in all but name, and besides a few minor alterations, a pretty faithful one, storywise - so one best goes into this not expecting a genre-reinvention from this one. But taking the movie for what it is, it's a well-lensed and well acted genre movie that manages to create tension and suspense even with fans of the original who know the outcome of pretty much every scene. Of course it doesn't live up to the original in pure inventiveness, but offers solid zombie entertainment that boasts expert craftmanship.
