A zombie outbreak, caused by a flue vaccine, has struck the whole country, but as of yet, Jesse (Jemma Dallender) knows little of it, being on a camping trip to the mountains with her best friends no cellphone signal - but eventually they're attacked by the infected, and before long Jesse finds herself on the run as the only survivor. She stumbles upon Emma (Alexis Boozer Sterling), a waitress who takes her to safety at the diner she's working at, much to the dismay of the place's owner Roy (John Manfredi), who enjoys his position of running the only safe haven in town a bit too much. But power makes him careless, and he soon ends up as zombie fodder. Jesse decides it's best to head to town to meet up with her scientist mother (Erika Hoveland), as since she has worked on above vaccine, she might know a cure, and she takes a bunch of people from the diner with her, including youngsters Mark (Jack Welcher) and Grace (Karina Martinez), whom she agrees to take to their survivalist uncle (John C. Forman) - only not all that many of Jesse's companions make it through, and said uncle proves to have a rather dangerous agenda of his own ...


Now I'd be hard-pressed to call Strain 100 the re-invention of the wheel when it comes to zombie cinema, and also some of the film's somewhat conservative (as in anti-science, pro-gun) attitudes don't sit super-well with me. But what it has set out to do this movie does very well, and that's to deliver 80+ minutes of zombie action cinema, with a bit of gruesomeness, some pretty cool kills, exciting chases aplenty and the right amount of both suspence and jump scares to keep one at the edge of one's seat. And Jemma Dallender, despite only rudimentary character development, carries the film rather beautifully, making this one fun genre ride.
