When I read the words “Italian zombie flick”, I was interested in “Eaters”.  I have a big respect for classic Lucio Fulci and Ruggero Deodato films. This film is presented by Uwe Boll (“House of the Dead”, “Bloodrayne”), so I started with a little extra respect for it since I enjoy his work quite a bit. This film features some solid gore and zombie effects for a low-budget horror flick. The film also features a decent soundtrack by Steve Sylvester, founder of black metal band Death SS. May not be the best zombie flick but it is worth checking out if you are looking for some gore and walking dead fun.

Official Synopsis: After the devastation of the Great Epidemic, the world is overrun by hordes of living dead. Two zombie hunters and a scientist set out to find the cause of the obliteration of the human race and a cure for the epidemic, all while trying to stay alive amidst the growing number of ferocious zombies, including neo-Nazis and the daughter of the feared plague-spreader.

Since this film is an Italian zombie film, the film is available to watch in 5.1 Italian Dolby Digital. That would be the way to watch this film if you don’t might subtitles. The other option would be the horribly dubbed, stress horrible, English 2.0 Dolby Digital track.  It is good for a laugh since it is so terrible (have I mentioned that aspect yet?) The only special feature included on the DVD is a behind-the-scenes making of featurette.  Decent extra but runs too short. That is all she wrote in terms of bonus features.  No trailer or commentary tracks included.
