It's been two years since the outbreak of "the infection", which killed large parts of humanity or (worse yet) turned them into mindless but cannibalistic zombies. It seems though that a certain lone wolf scientist, Dr Fehmi (Debbie Rochon) has found the cure, so she contacts Dr Leigh Rozetta (Christina Anne Aceto), who lives in one of the very few heavily guarded gouvernment research facilities still intact, to conduct some tests. With every day, Leigh becomes more optimistic that the cure has indeed been found ... but with the completion only days away, she suddenly decides to take a stroll to the outside on her own, putting her in unnecessary danger ...

Outside the facility, there are still hints of civilisation, but it comes at a price - so everybody's carrying weapons, nobody trusts nobody, and feelings like love and affection have become scarce, and higher morals a liability.

Seph (Richard Roy Sutton) and McKay (Robert Nolan), who have led an exploration team into the region, have just survived a zombie attack that has wiped out the entire rest of the team, and they now seek refuge in a house - interestingly the house iof Leigh's parents, whose dead bodies are still in their bedroom after they killed themselves in order to escape the zombies for good. They also find Leigh - and everybody immediately starts to distrust each other, but since this is the only house in the region where one might be relatively safe from zombies (Leigh has seen to that), they pretty much have to learn to trust each other, which is not made very easy be the fact that Leigh is acting mighty erratic, and the bully-ish Seph and the educated McKay can't stand each other's guts to begin with ...

Meanwhile at the research facility, Leigh's best friend Claudia (Jennifer Polansky) is worried sick about her, and she eventually comes to the conclusion something must have happened to Leigh. And since Leigh has saved her life once, she now goes after her. But when she arrives at the house of Leigh's parents, Leigh shoots her dead, mistaking her for a zombie. Now that really pushes Leigh over the edge (and she has been acting weird so far already) - to such an extent that the two men discuss whether or not she has become a liability.

Now is this a constellation that's doomed to head for certain doom? And will anyone survive? Heck, why has Leigh left the relative safety of the facility in the first place? And what about the promised zombie cure? ...

 

In nowaday's horror field, zombie films are pretty much a dime a dozen - so it's especially remarkable that Sick - Survive the Night manages to stick out of the crowd. Basically, this is thanks to an intelligent and thoughtful script that pays little attention to action and gory details and concentrates on human interaction instead - going so far as to making the humans the source of their own demise, while the zombies are only an anonymous and largely absent threat - somehow echoing Jean Paul Sartre's "hell is other people" in that respect. Now add to that a subtle directorial effort that gives the movie's characters time to develop rather than rushing from one gore or action setpiece to the next, and an uniformly great cast, and you've got yourself a pretty good film.

Recommended!
