One time TV Superman and presenter of Ripley's Believe It Or Not, Dean 'I smell dead people' Cain comes back from a jungle mission (along with his entire platoon) in a body bag. But, thanks to zombie scorpions (yep, really), Dean and his squad are not entirely dead and wake up all infected 'n' chit at an army airbase where they quickly go on a man-eating rampage.
Well, not Dean, coz he's a good guy who has the sense to cut the 'Jindoo' scorpion out of his arm before he goes completely evil. He's still a zombie, but now he has a heart of gold.., awww. Anyhow, after the zombies escape the airbase, Dean busts out to get them back.So, with the help of an annoying sidekick, he hunts his old platoon down before they infect the entire planet.
Routinely directed, cheap looking and a mere, thin stew of plot points from Return Of The Living Dead (84), Day Of The Dead (85) and Dead Heat (88), it can't be called original, but makes up for the fact by packing in a lot of disposable gore, green blood, gunfire, violence, zombie gags, a dwarf, flappy dialogue and numerous genre movie in-jokes. Made for Sat TV, it co-stars Susan Ward, Guy Torry and Peter Green (Zed from Pulp Fiction—94).
