TV/Online Streaming Series Review
I spoke with Rick Jennings, the Exec. Producer of ScreenMagic Films, and he cleared a few things up for me. First off, it is so cool that they've received enough feedback to possibly receive a deal for full-length episodes. Until then, if you have an Amazon Prime account, Vimeo On Demand, ScreenMagic Roku channel and/or ScreenMagicTV.com, you can watch all episodes. AND this not fanfiction; don't get it twisted. With that said, the world as we know it, is no more. Something’s happened and there be zombies!
Episode 1: Bunker Fever, introduces David. He’s a loner, hiding in the basement of a school's cafeteria. After deciding he can’t reach his friend, via short wave radio, he decides he’s got to get out. He walks some distance, then winds up shooting the first real person he meets - go figure! In Episode 2: Uninvited Guests you're shown how the zompoc began, before meeting three characters, with one named AJ (David’s friend). They too, leave their shelter and go wandering and run in to some very unfriendly folks.
The episodes are short, about 15 minutes, but interesting. I admit, there wasn't a thing I didn’t like, other than the sound effects of the first kill. They were a bit artificial, but the scene itself, was impressive. Rather brutal even! I also liked how episode one's ending tied in to episode two, offering up immediate answers. That’s always a bonus.
Should they be received by Amazon, they'll make the episodes full-length, which would be even better. That would mean more action, more blood and more answers. The music was spot on, the cinematography was great and I'm happy with what I saw. Let's hope more is coming soon! Again, The Z Virus is available on Vimeo On Demand, Amazon.com Prime, Roku’s ScreenMagic and ScreenMagicTV.com. Below is the intro trailer; check it out.
I'm outta here- Cheers!
